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 rumored launch details and R&D purposes. A latest report claims that Maruti Suzuki will introduce the Wagon R-based MPV in coming years. Though the report doesn’t mention the launch details, it is likely to hit showrooms sometime next year. In Maruti’s product lineup, the new Wagon R 7 Seater MPV will be positioned below the Ertiga and above the Eeco. Once launched, the Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV will face challenge against the Datsun Go+ and Renault’s upcoming compact MPV.

Production of the new Maruti MPV might take place at the company’s Gujarat-based plant. 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. While the wheelbase of the MPV will be similar to its hatch sibling, its overall length will be increased for accommodating three row seat layout. As far as engine is concerned, the new Maruti 7 Seater MPV could be offered either with a 67.04bhp, 1.0L K10B petrol or 84bhp, 1.2L K-Series petrol motor. Transmission choices might include a 5-speed manual and an optional AMT gearbox.

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. The company has also reported to provide the list of components to its vendors that will be used for the vehicle. Read – Maruti Grand Vitara SUV Is Coming To India

Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV Launch Date

Maruti Suzuki will bring in three new models in the utility vehicle segment (including the Wagon 7 Seater MPV) by 2021. Though, the exact launch date and details of the products are yet to be revealed. We believe that Maruti might unveil the production-ready version of the WagonR-based MPV sometime next year, and its launch could happen towards the end of 2018 or early 2019. Check Out – Upcoming Maruti Cars In India

MinimumRs 4.5 lakh
MaximumRs 7 lakh

Similar to its hatchback sibling, the new Wagon R MPV will be a practical and easy to drive vehicle. Its 7-seat layout will further appeal the large family buyers. The Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV price in India is expected to fall between Rs 4.5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom), thus making it around Rs 80,000 to Rs 90,000 more expensive than the Wagon R hatchback. If launched at this price, it will become India’s most affordable seven-seater MPV.

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. Besides the platform, this new MPV will share its styling elements with its hatchback sibling such as tall-boy design and a high ground clearance. Some of design element might include a bold radiator grille with chrome, conventional steel wheels with covers and bright taillamp cluster.

Reports suggest that the wheelbase of the MPV will be similar to its donor sibling – i.e. 2,400mm. Though, its length will be increased by 101mm. While the hatchback measures 3,599 in length, the MPV will be around 3,700mm long. Compared to the Datsun Go+, it will be 295mm shorter. Read About – New-generation Maruti Swift

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.

Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV Specifications

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 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.

Maruti Wagon R 7 Seater MPV Competition

In the budget MPV space, the new Maruti 7 Seater MPV will take on head-to-head against the upcoming Renault compact MPV. It will also go up against the Datsun Go+.

    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.
