2013 Suzuki Wagon R debuts in Japan - to deliver fuel efficiency of 28.8 Kmpl

The 2013 Suzuki Wagon R is actually the second generation of the model and the vehicle is following the same path which made it famous on its local auto market: a small, boxy, well-packaged mini-minivan with a small 660cc engine under its hood.

Suzuki says that the 2013 Wagon R is 155 pounds lighter than the previous generation and its 660cc three-cylinder engine has been improved with the Idling Stop system and its fuel economy is 67.7 mpg for the stock front-wheel drive in Japan’s JC08 fuel cycle, while the four-wheel drive editions return 58.8 mpg. The 2013 Suzuki Wagon R has also been fitted with a new regenerative braking system.

At 3.39 metre the car is shorter than the outgoing model but the wheelbase remains same at 2.4 metre, which means there won’t be any skimping on the legroom. The new Wagon R weighs between 780 Kg – 870 Kg.

The 660cc 3 cylinder, petrol motor makes 52 bhp and 64 bhp in normally aspirated and turbocharged versions respectively. However, if the new Wagon R comes to India, the K10 motor powering the current Wagon R will take charge.
