Indo-Japanese automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki has silently launched the 1.0-litre BS-VI petrol version of the WagonR compact hatchback. The entry-level BS-VI WagonR now commands an ex-showroom price of ₹4.42 lakh which is ₹8,000 more than the existing BS-IV version.



Maruti Suzuki had launched the 1.2-litre BS-VI petrol engine in the WagonR in June. The entry-level 1.0-litre unit has now been upgraded to meet the upcoming emission norm.



The upgrade of the 1.0-litre unit to the BS-VI standard hasn’t compromised with the engine’s output which still produces 68PS maximum power and 90Nm peak torque. However, the car’s claimed fuel efficiency has gone down to 21.79kmpl from 22.5kmpl. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox in the Lxi model, while a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) is available as on option in the Vxi trim.



The four-cylinder, 1.2-litre petrol unit produces 82PS maximum power and 114Nm peak torque. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gear system with AMT being available as an option.

The BS-VI 1.0-litre WagonR retains all the features of the outgoing BS-IV model. Standard safety features comprise rear parking sensors, antilock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), front seatbelt reminder, and a driver-side airbag. The WgaonR 1.0-litre Vxi trim comes with features like internally adjustable outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs), rear power windows, and a two-din audio system with auxiliary and Bluetooth connectivity.


The Maruti Suzuki WagonR has been counted among the most popular compact hatchbacks in the Indian market for several decades. The car’s latest version is its third-generation iteration. The WagonR clocked 14,359 units in October sales.

The BS-VI Vxi, VXi(O), Vxi AGS, and the VXi(O) AGS trims of the WagonR, will be now available at an ex-showroom price of ₹4.78 lakh, ₹4.94 lakh, ₹5.34 lakh, and ₹5.41 lakh respectively. Each trim will cost ₹8,000 more than their respective BS-IV versions.
