YouTube channel Auto Vikings has posted a video showing the top-end configuration of the 2019 Maruti Wagon R featuring AGS, Maruti Suzuki’s proprietary branding for AMT.
The transmission choices of the 2019 Maruti Wagon R are the same as those of its predecessor: 5-speed manual and 5-speed automated manual. Instead of the K10B 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 50 kW (67.98 PS) and 90 Nm of torque, customers can go for the K12M 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 61 kW (82.94 PS) and 113 Nm of torque this time. The AGS option is available for both the engine models, and configurations equipped with it should deliver the same fuel economy as those with a manual transmission.
Maruti Suzuki will offer the 2019 Wagon R in three grades: LXi, VXi and ZXi. Customers will have the AGS option in only the VXi and ZXi grades, depending on the engine selected. On the outside, the hatchback features squarish headlamps, chrome accent on the grille, power folding and adjustable ORVMs with integrated turn indicators, 14-inch steel wheels and tall tail lamps. The colour palette comprises six options, and the car seen in the video here is painted in ‘Nutmeg Brown’.
Inside, the all-new Maruti Wagon R has a dual-tone colour scheme. The range-topping grade comes equipped with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, day/night IRVM, tilt-adjustable steering, steering-mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, and 60:40 split folding rear seats.
On the safety front, driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors are standard. Front fog lamps, front passenger airbag and rear defogger, washer and wiper are included as standard in only the ZXi grade, although there is an option for front passenger airbag in the LXi and VXi grades.
Maruti Suzuki will launch the new generation Wagon R on the 23rd of this month.
