Next-gen 2017 Suzuki Wagon R brochure leaked in Japan, debut on Feb 1
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 be available in gasoline and hybrid variants.
Brochure scans of the next generation Suzuki Wagon R and Suzuki Wagon R Stingray have leaked on the Japanese web revealing the final exterior design, features and specifications. The iconic tallboy goes on sale in Japan on February 1, 2017.
The 2017 Wagon R measures 3,395 mm long, 1,475 mm wide, 1,650 mm high, has a wheelbase of 2,460 mm and ground clearance of 150 mm. It weighs between 750 kg – 840 kg (depending on the variant), and a fuel tank capacity of 27L.
In Japan, the new Wagon R will be sold in three grades: FA, Hybrid FX and Hybrid FZ. The Hybrid FZ and Hybrid FX+FA duo feature slightly different faces, while all three models share the same profile and rear-end styling.
The design of the Wagon R has not changed drastically. Subtle touches give it new freshness like a slanted B-Pillar, chrome braces up front and a slightly peeled back headlight.
Inside, the new Wagon R has an angular floating dashboard, finished in beige or black. The steering wheel looks identical to the Ignis’s unit; it has a centrally-mounted instrument cluster, console-mounted CVT and tablet-like audio system, which can be substituted with a touchscreen infotainment system.
The 2017 Suzuki Wagon R gets driven by the R06A 660 3-cyl petrol engine that produces 52 PS and 60 Nm of peak torque. Hybrid variants come additionally equipped with a WAO5A electric motor producing 3.1 PS and 50 Nm of peak torque. All variants offer the option of an AWD system.
The Japanese specification Wagon R will not come to India. The Indian spec model, which could see a reveal early next year, could borrow some design inspiration from its Japanese cousin.
