The Suzuki Wagon R was always one of the most successful ‘Kei’ cars in Japan. The tall boy finds its place in the list of best selling cars in India too.

Here is a preview of 2013 Suzuki Wagon R that made its debut in Tokyo this week.

Also unveiled was a sportier edition of Wagon R called Stingray which may not find its way into India.

The front looks new but one can easily identify it as a Wagon R. The larger headlamps are stretched back; the rectangular grill bears three thick strips and is finished in silver color. Interestingly there is no provision for fog lamps, perhaps they may be integrated in the future?

On the rear, the bumper feels a little bulky making it look taller than it actually is. The tail lamps have undergone subtle changes.

Coming to the interiors, the new dashboard is finished in dual tone. The steering is new and the gear knob is now mounted on the dashboard, freeing up the space between the driver and passenger seats for storage.

At 3.39 metre the car is shorter than the outgoing model but the wheelbase remains same at 2.4 metre, which means there won’t be any skimping on the legroom. The new Wagon R weighs between 780 Kg – 870 Kg.

The 660cc 3 cylinder, petrol motor makes 52 bhp and 64 bhp in normally aspirated and turbocharged versions respectively. However, if the new Wagon R comes to India, the K10 motor powering the current Wagon R will take charge.

Maruti Suzuki has just launched the limited edition Wagon R Pro and may take a while before we could see the 2013 Wagon R on our roads.

    Trust the Japanese to make a moving box and they won’t disappoint you…nobody makes BOXY cars better than them. Sorry….to me it is plain YUK!

    Its actually looking nice in this current form, but when it comes to India, Maruti engineers will screw up the front and rear end.. like what they did to the current Wagon R.

    the thing with wagon r is … india always gets the phased out version of wagon r… so expect this model to reach indian shows probably after a decade….

    They could have painted lower half of bumper black (like Scala) to take care of the bulk part.
