Maruti Reveals Face-lifted Wagon R
The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is one of the highest selling cars in the history of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. The Wagon R, which got a comprehensive model update a couple of years back, has now got a mild facelift to remain fresh in the market.
It may be noted that MSIL realizes the need to regularly spruce up its small cars to fend off the ever increasing competition.
The changes are minimal; however the company claims to improve engine’s efficiency. The makers boast an OBD II complaint engine including other changes that make the vehicle eight percent more efficient than its 2010 edition.
The updated version is powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder K Series petrol motor while power and torque remain unchanged. The car once again will be offered in CNG and Petrol variants. Also the front bumper, headlights and grill are re-designed.
Talking of the interior, beige and black combination gives it a fresh, up class feel along with increased storage space just above the glove box. The best part is improved audio unit which enables USB connectivity. The day/night inside rear view mirror is a cherry on top.
The prices for Maruti Suzuki’s face lifted Wagon R may be announced next week and an increase of 0.5 percent to 2 percent is expected.
