Full credit to our friends at Goa on Wheels for snapping these images of the new Suzuki Wagon R somewhere in Goa. For the first time ever, we get to see the new and old Wagon R parked next to each other.
We're also thankful to BS Motoring for listing out the features on the new Wagon R. By new, we just don't mean a facelifted model. This is the newest Suzuki Wagon R (4th generation), modified partially to suit the Indian taste. Suzuki has done this with the Splash (Ritz), just like how VW did it to the Polo.
MSIL had spent more than Rs. 290 crore on the new Wagon R, which will be launched on the 23rd of the this month in three variants of which the top-end model will have ABS and Airbags.
The new Wagon R is expected to come with a 1.0-liter K-Series engine that'll deliver about 60bhp and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The new model is expected to be more spacious and handle better. Prices will not be revealed until launch, but speculations suggest it'll start at 3.3 lakh rupees.
