2017 WagonR and Stingray- Design

The new WagonR and Stingray will follow the same tall boy design as seen in the current version of the car but now feature sharper and quirkier design cues. On the exterior, both hatchbacks have received major changes and the WagonR gets split headlamps with a large air intake at the lower grille and a redesigned bumper. Along with this, the new WagonR features a slimmer B-pillar and newly-designed tail-lamps. On the other hand, the WagonR's sibling, the Stingray, received the new vertically positioned headlamp cluster, redesigned bumper and grille at the front, while at the rear it gets new tail lamps.

2017 WagonR- Engine

The Japanese spec WagonR and Stingray are powered by a 660cc, 3-cylinder DOHC that produces 51hp of power and 61Nm of torque with the mild hybrid system. For the India, the company will bring the new WagonR and Stingray with the existing engine, a 1.0 litre K10 engine. It is expected that the company might bring the hatchback with mild hybrid technology as it plans to expand the scope of SHVS technology across more models in coming times. Using the present engine could also require Maruti Suzuki engineers to repackage the engine compartment as the new model seems to have a smaller area under the hood.
