Likely to enter production in September, the new Maruti Suzuki WagonR 7 seater model or Solio will go on sale in November 2018
This sub-4 meter compact MPV is sold in the Japanese and Chinese markets.
We informed you earlier that Maruti Suzuki will launch the 7 seater WagonR in the Indian market in the second half of this year. We believe that Maruti Suzuki could launch the Solio 7 seater MPV as new 7 seater WagonR. For people not in the known, Suzuki is selling the Solio in the Japanese market.
In fact, Solio has already been spotted testing multiple times on Indian roads. This new model will directly rival the Datsun GO+ MPV. The 7 seater model is likely to be powered by 1.0-litre K-Series petrol engine producing 67bhp and 90Nm of torque. The company could also use the more powerful 1.2-litre petrol engine that also powers the Ignis, Swift twins and Baleno. This engine is capable of producing 82bhp of power and 114Nm of torque.
