Rumors also say that the 1.2L Wagon R might come with a CNG option at a later stage.
The engines get mated to 5 speed manual and 5 speed AMT gearbox
The base LXI variant will have the Idle Start Stop function which will help increase the fuel economy
The brochure further reveals that the WagonR will offer a fuel efficiency of 25.19 kilometres to a litre.
Upon its arrival, it will take on the likes of Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago in the hatchback segment.
A premium on the outgoing model’s price can be expected given the enhanced features and improved safety.
The present model is priced between Rs 5.18 lakh and Rs 6.58 lakh, so expect to pay Rs 10,000-15,000 extra.
