Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV

Maruti Wagon R 7-Seater MPV made its first appearance at the 2013 Indonesia International Motor Show.

Maruti Suzuki has been enjoying a major chunk of the Indian automobile industry ever since its inception. Currently, the Indo-Japanese carmaker holds over 50% of market share in the passenger vehicle space. With an aim to maintain its dominance in the market, the company is planning to expand its UV (utility vehicle) lineup with three new models – an Ertiga-based Crossover, Wagon R MPV and a premium SUV. The Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV attracted plenty of attention from visitors during its public debut at the 2016 Auto Expo. Just to jog your memory, the company showcased the concept avatar of the vehicle in 2013 at the Indonesia International Motor Show.

Codenamed YJC, the WagonR-based MPV has always been in the news for its rumoured launch details and R&D purposes. According to a latest report, the Maruti Wagon R 7 seater MPV has been confirmed for India and it will enter into production in September, 2018. The launch is likely to happen in November, 2018. In terms of price and positioning, the new Wagon R 7 Seater MPV will sit between the Ertiga and the Eeco. Once launched, the Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV will take on the Datsun Go+ and Renault’s upcoming compact MPV.

Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV Price in India

MinimumRs 4.5 lakh
MaximumRs 7 lakh

Compared to its hatchback sibling, the new Wagon R MPV will be a more practical machine with bigger dimensions and a more spacious cabin. Its 7-seat layout will further appeal the large family buyers. The MPV will be around Rs 80,000 to Rs 90,000 more expensive than the Wagon R hatchback. The Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV price in India is likely to start from Rs 4.5 lakh for the entry-level variant and go up to Rs 6 lakh for the range-topping model. If launched at this price, it will become the most affordable seven-seater MPV in the country. Read: New-generation Maruti Swift – Price & Details

Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV Exterior & Interior

Maruti’s 7-seat MPV will get a much better styling than most of its rivals, as claimed by Davy J Tulian, the Sales head at PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales. Though, the company hasn’t yet revealed the production-ready model of the car. The production version of the vehicle is likely to stay close to its concept. Most of the design bits and components will be derived from the Wagon R hatchback such as tall-boy design and a high ground clearance. Some of styling bits might include a bold radiator grille with chrome, conventional steel wheels with covers and bright taillamp cluster. Check Out – Maruti Future S Concept Pictures & Details

Besides this, this new MPV will share its platform with its hatchback sibling. While the wheelbase of the MPV will be similar to its hatch sibling (i.e. 2,400mm), its overall length will be increased by 10mm for accommodating three row seat layout. The Maruti Wagon R 7 seater MPV will measure around 3,700mm in length. Compared to the Datsun Go+, it will be 295mm shorter.

It will be interesting to see how well Maruti manages to pack this car. There will be three row seats, and we are not sure how much boot space will be left for storage. The dual-tone beige and purple interior theme could be carried over from the concept. Features such as a power assisted steering wheel, advanced instrument cluster and remote control centralized lock could also be on offer. Read: Maruti e-Survivor Mini SUV Concept Revealed

Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV Specifications

A couple of years ago, Maruti Suzuki had imported two units of the WagonR-based MPV in India for R&D purposes. One of them was equipped with a 1,197cc, K-Series petrol engine, and the other one was powered by a 1,248cc, DDiS diesel motor.

Though there is no clarity about engine details of the Maruti’s new 7-seat Wagon R. Speculations suggest that Maruti might offer the MPV either with a 67.04bhp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder K-Series or 84bhp, 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine. The company might also offer CNG and LPG fuel options with the MPV, but at a later stage. Transmission options on offer could be a 5-speed manual and an AMT unit. Read: New-gen Maruti Alto Under Development

    I am completely against calling Datsun Go+ a 7 seater. The third row is senseless in my point of view and if the Wagon R 7 seater is shorter than Datsun Go+ then its like LOL. The only car which should be called an entry level 7-seater (in petrol) then it is one and only Honda Mobilio, after that you can count on Ertiga but in terms of space and practicality Honda Mobilio should be called a 7 seater. Rest I can’t say about others. You might be against me but I would love to hear your view.
