Country's leading carmaker Maruti Suzuki has been testing its new generation WagonR for quite some time now. Now, a seven-seater version of the car has been snapped testing that too, completely undisguised. The image has been shared by a Team-BHP reader and the test mule seems to have been snapped testing somewhere in Delhi NCR. The new 2018 Maruti Suzuki WagonR will come based on the Suzuki Solio that is already on sale in some global markets. The report also adds that the new upcoming seven-seater Maruti Suzuki Wagon-R has been confirmed for India and its production will start sometime in the month of September 2018. The company is currently busy studying the parameters regarding the market and it could launch the car by November this year. The new model sees some major changes when compared to the present day model and it looks a lot premium. The new 2018 Maruti WagonR seven-seater has a thick chrome section at the rear that runs from one end to another. The tail lamps of the car are clear lens type that do look good for a change.
The Suzuki Solio MPV falls under the sub-four metre category and it is on sale in Japan with a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol hybrid engine. The said motor delivers a maximum power output of 90 bhp along with a peak torque of 118 Nm. The India-spec model might use the same petrol engine that comes with the present day WagonR.
In terms of features, the car is expected to get a premium feel inside along with a touchscreen infotainment system that comes in the new Maruti Dzire. Maruti will also launch the five-seater version of the car that has been snapped testing in Delhi NCR multiple times. Once launched, the new Maruti WagonR will be the second MPV by the manufacturer after the Ertiga that is also due for an update. The smaller version of the new Maruti WagonR is also expected to be launched towards the end of this year.
