The Maruti Suzuki Solio is essentially the bigger MPV version of the WagonR hatchback. It’s taller and more premium than its donor sibling. The company is already retailing the sub-4 meter compact MPV in the Japanese and Chinese markets. Sitting on a long wheelbase, the car offers a spacious cabin with ample head and legroom. Its left and right hand remote control electric sliding rear doors further enhance its practicality.
The upright and tall stance gives the Solio a boxy appearance. The car features an upright rear windshield, thick chrome strip with clear lens taillamps and a roof spoiler at the rear end. Interior of the Maruti Suzuki Solio features a touchscreen infotainment system, 3-spoke, multi functional steering wheel and centrally mounted instrument cluster.
