Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Variants
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R • Price, Variants & Specifications
The Maruti Wagon R was first launched in India in 1999. People, then, were not too enthusiastic about the car, because of its awkward height. The Wagon R is the tallest hatchback in the country, as a matter of fact. But the persistence of the company and the consistency of quality did pay off and Maruti has developed the latest variant of the Wagon R now- it released on the 15th of January 2013. Maruti Suzuki has made a lot of changes to the interiors and the exteriors of the car. The price of the car ranges between Rs 3,76,000 to Rs 4,58,000, depending on the variant of the car that one purchases.
Engine & Performance
The Maruti Wagon R comes in a CNG variant and a petrol variant. The CNG variant is capable of providing 15.5 km/kg within the city roads and around 20.2 kg/km on highways. The normal, petrol engine variant of the car can provide an amazing mileage of 14.2 kmpl within the city limits and around 18.9 kmpl on the highway. The car is packed with a KB10 1.0 l petrol engine that comes with a displacement of 998 cc. This engine is quite lightweight. It can produce around 68 PS at 6200 rpm and generate a maximum torque of 90 Nm at 3200 rpm. The petrol engine comes mated to a 5 speed transmission as well.The VXi variant is the ones that run on CNG fuel. This engine runs on intelligent gas port injection (i- GPI) bi- fuel technology which provides for a really smart, comfortable road. The car can generate 59.3 PS at 6200 rpm and 77 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm. This engine variation won't just help a person save a lot of money it would also restrict their carbon footprint.
