Maruti Suzuki Wagon R MPV
Suzuki Motor Corporation had unveiled an MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) car in Indonesia, based on its very popular Wagon R hatchback. Named the Wagon R, this car could soon be launchedÂ in the India market as a hatchback car in the already brimming segment, bringing with it many more possibilities. The platform and wheelbase forÂ the Wagon R MPVÂ is the identical to that of theÂ Wagon RÂ we all know. The only difference is extra spacious interiors and head space than the earlier Wagon R. While no official news has been heard about the launch, the Wagon R MPV India launch could possibly be slated by the end of fiscal year 2016-2017.
Maruti Suzuki has already imported two units of the Wagon R MPV in India for R&D purposes. One of the cars is powered by a 1,197cc, K-Series petrol engine, whereas the other car comes with a 1,248cc, DDiS diesel motor. Since this is very similar to the Wagon R hatchback, so based on the Wagon R hatchback, this MPV will be positioned above the Eeco and below the Ertiga. Mated with a five-speed manual transmission, the Swift returns an impressive mileage of 20.4kmpl.
IBB reviews say that this seven seater Maruti Suzuki WagonÂ R MPV is going to be considered as the third generation of the Wagon R, with its tall boy looks and equally fuel efficient engines offering great mileage. There will not be much changes from the Wagon R interiors but since this is a 7 seater, the seating style will be different though comfortable and adequate. The boot space may be a little crunched up so the last row will be folded to create more luggage space.
