Currently, this premium hatchback is available with a 1.2-litre VVT petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS diesel powertrain options.

The Indo-Japanese carmaker that already sells the diesel variant of the Brezza will introduce its petrol iteration early this year. With the rising demand for petrol cars in India, this one too is among the most-awaited upcoming new Maruti cars in India.

This engine punches out a maximum power of 110bhp at 5500rpm and 170Nm of torque between 2000-3000rpm.

With the number of queries we have received on our portal about the Wagon R 7-seater, it’s easy to claim that this is one of the most-awaited upcoming new Maruti cars in India.
The seven-seater version of the hatchback will stand tall with a high ground clearance and have lots of comfort and safety to offer. Besides this, the affordable pricing (we believe) will work as cherry on the cake. The Maruti Wagon R 7-seater MPV will be positioned above the Eeco and below the Ertiga MPV. In India, this MPV will lock horns with the Datsun Go+. The Indo-Japanese carmaker might offer the Wagon R 7-seater MPV with two engine options – a 0.8-litre DDiS diesel unit, and a 1.2-litre K-Series or the Alto’s 1.0-litre K10 petrol motor.
|Estimated Price Range||Rs 4.5 lakh – Rs 6.0 lakh|
|Engines||1.0-litre K-Series Petrol & 1.3-litre Diesel|
