Maruti Wagon R
The third-gen WagonR is the latest strengthened model of Suzuki’s Heartect modular platform. The new objectives not only make it a futuristic car but a remarkable model as well. It has a price range between Rs 5 lakh to 7 lakh based on the variant. And the expansion in size is quite obvious in the first image. The redesigned Wagon R uses two engine choices: a 1 liter 3-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.2-liter K-series engine. For the lowest variants, Maruti will put together a CNG OEM package. Equipped with CNG, the Wagon R was a huge success in metropolitan cities with the same gearbox options. AMT 5-speed and 5-speed manual transmissions remain the main features of the Wagon R. The Maruti Wagon R has been one of the best choices for customers for a glance at practical and sensible hatchback for over a long time. But as per the market scenario, buyer choice, as well as safety and outflow norms evolve completely fits with the new WagonR. Naturally, we had to take the third-gen Wagon R out for a short spin to find out whether it has hardly built upon its ideology of practicality or if it has enhanced a tougher all-rounder. The third-gen model appears to be an anomaly while there are notable creases on the wheel squeeze. The brand new hatchback even gets an ultra-fine, yet noticeable waistline. These improvements make it look less slab-sided than the older model and also help jazz up the surface of the new hatchback. Going with the broadly, latest trend, Maruti has incorporated a black plastic applique on the C-pillar to create a floating roof outcome. There are new fashionable color choices like Autumn Orange, classy Magma Grey, the popular Silky Silver, and Superior White, onward beside an understated Nutmeg Brown and bright Poolside Blue.
