Maruti Suzuki has recently launched the 2022 WagonR with a slew of changes and new powertrain options. Here’s a detailed look at the same:
2022 Maruti WagonR – What’s New?
Exterior: – The upgraded WagonR doesn’t bring any substantial design and cosmetical changes except for the introduction of the new 15-inch blacked-out alloy wheels, and two dual-tone paint options for the top-spec ZXI+ trim: Galant Red with black roof and Magma Grey with black roof.
Interior and features: – While the cabin design of the upgraded WagonR remains completely unchanged, it gains new dual-tone beige-&-dark grey melange fabric seats. Besides, the brand has also equipped the compact hatch with four speakers (earlier offered with two) and a hill hold assist system (for AMT variants only).
Engine Options: – The biggest update lies underneath the bonnet. That said, Maruti Suzuki has offered the 2022 WagonR with new 1.0-liter and 1.2-litre DualJet DualVVT petrol engines, borrowed from the new-gen Celerio and facelifted Baleno, respectively. Both the power mills get an idle start-stop system as standard. Besides, the 1.0-litre unit is also available with an optional factory-fitted CNG kit, albeit without the starter-generator system.
Here’s a look at their detailed specifications: –
|Engines||1.0-litre petrol||1.2-litre petrol||1.0-litre petrol-CNG|
|Transmission options||5-speed manual / AMT||5-speed manual / AMT||5-speed manual|
|Claimed Mileage||23.56kmpl / 24.43kmpl||24.35kmpl / 25.19kmpl||34.05km/kg|
Compared to the previous iteration of the WagonR, its new 1.2-liter engine develops 9PS of additional power and 5kmpl of more fuel efficiency. On the other hand, the 1.0-liter petrol delivers 1PS less than the earlier version, but up to 4kmpl better mileage. For the CNG powertrain, the power has been reduced by 2PS.
Price: With all the above-mentioned changes, the prices of Maruti WagonR have gone up by up to Rs 35,000. But surprisingly, the top-spec ZXI trim has gotten more affordable by Rs 8,000. With this, the hatchback is now priced between Rs 5.39 lakh to Rs 7.10 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Here’s the variant-wise price breakup: –
