Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will feature a rugged body kit with higher GC and bigger wheels.

According to leaked information, PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SIS) will be showcasing a (Maruti) Suzuki Wagon R crossover at the upcoming Jakarta Fair in Indonesia, expected to start on June 10. It’s unclear if the model will be exclusive to the local market or introduced in other countries where Suzuki already sells the Wagon R.

Suzuki had already previewed such a product in the form of the Maruti Wagon R XRest at the Auto Expo 2014. It featured a rugged body kit comprising of black plastic moldings and silver skid guards on the front and rear bumpers, as well as the sides of the Wagon R. It was also equipped with a new grille, projector headlights, LED elements in taillights and faux air vents on both front fenders.

It will likely be powered by the same 1.0L K10 engine found in the regular Wagon R, which produces 68 PS and 90 Nm of torque. It is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a 5-speed AMT is also offered.

The introduction of the Wagon R crossover appears to be a response to shifting market dynamics, wherein first time buyers are preffering entry-level small cars with design traits of a crossover. The Renault Kwid and the forthcoming Datsun redi-GO are perfect examples.
