Suzuki launches new Wagon R compact car in India
The new Wagon R is an exciting offering in India’s A2 segment. Embodying the first full model change since Maruti Suzuki’s initial Wagon R launch in India in 1999, it inherits the hallmarks of earlier Wagon R generations: distinctive styling with lots of presence; a design that makes driving easy and allows people to step in and out with ease; and a spacious cabin. Power for the new Wagon R comes from Suzuki’s new K10B engine, which has better fuel economy and emissions performance than its predecessor and complies with the Bharat Stage IV (BS-IV) emission regulations that were introduced in India on 1 April this year.
Engineers from Suzuki Motor Corporation and Maruti Suzuki worked together to develop the new Wagon R for India based on the Wagon R that’s available in Japan. It’s an outstanding evolution of a series that has already sold in excess of 800,000 units in the Indian market. Wagon R sales in India in 2009 were 144,898 units (an increase of 7.5% from 2008). It’s an outstanding evolution of a series that has already sold in excess of 800,000 units in the Indian market.
