The Maruti Suzuki WagonR MPV is a concept model that was showcased years ago and has now been spotted testing in India.

Seven years ago, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR MPV made its first appearance at a motor show in Indonesia. Since then there have been no talks from Maruti Suzuki about the model for the Indonesian as well as the Indian market. The new MPV from Maruti Suzuki has now been spotted testing on the outskirts of Delhi indicating that the manufacturers are finally going forward with this new car.

A YouTube user, Abhinav Bhatt, captured and uploaded a video of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki WagonR MPV while riding his motorcycle on the outskirts of Delhi. As we can see, this is a sub-four-metre evolution of the car that has been fitted with seven seats. This means that the last row may just be slightly cramped or only good to accommodate kids or pets. Although the model is still in the early phases of testing, we may expect to see more changes in the production model. The WagonR MPV will be distinguishable from the standard WagonR with distinct design cues at the front and the rear. The model that was spotted has a completely blacked out exterior so many details aren’t visible at first glance.

With the start of the BS6 era in India, Maruti Suzuki have updated many of their models with a new 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine. The other three BS6 engines in the lineup are also all petrol powertrains – K12N (1.2-litre) four-cylinder, K12M (1.2-litre) four-cylinder, and the K10B (1.0-litre) three-cylinder. The variants that were earlier available with the option of a 1.3-litre DDiS (based on FIAT’s Multijet diesel) engine have been discontinued. The Maruti Suzuki WagonR MPV is expected to be offered with the 1.2-litre SHVS hybrid petrol engine that puts out 90 hp and 113 Nm. Sources have also reported that a fully-electric version WagonR is in the works.

The Maruti Suzuki WagonR MPV is likely to be launched in the Indonesian market first before making its way to the Indian market. The fact that it is a sub-four-metre car could mean that it will be sold at an aggressive price point and go up against the likes of the Renault Triber in India.
