While everyone is engaged with the launches and happenings at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo, Maruti Suzuki is busily testing the 2018 Wagon R.
The test mule was spotted near Maruti’s Gurgaon plant and the body panels seems almost production ready. The car may be heavily camouflaged but gives away clear cues of the new design and dimensions.
The 2018 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R will continue to be a tall-boy hatchback but will get a new exterior design for a more modern look and feel. The car gets flared fenders and a prominent muscular line that runs across the side body panels.
The 2018 Maruti Wagon R will meet the Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms, in addition to the stricter safety norms under Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP).
The market position and the pricing of the new car will be similar to the ongoing model. Most other details about this car are not known for now.
Currently, the Wagon R is powered by 3-cylinder, 998cc engine which produces 67 hp and 90 Nm mated to 5-speed manual gearbox. Auto Gear Shift is option on higher trims.
