2022 WagonR Facelift – Engine and Transmission
As on date, the WagonR is powered by two petrol engines. The 1.0 liter K10B offers 67 hp of max power at 5,500 rpm and 90 Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm and the 1.2 liter K12M engine makes 82 hp at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm at 4,200 rpm. The engines get mated to 5 speed manual and 5 speed AMT gearbox.
2022 WagonR facelift will get K10C 1.0 liter and K12N 1.2 liter engine with idle start stop technology leading to improved fuel efficiency / mileage of 25.19 km/l. The K12N 1.2 liter motor could be the same as seen on the newly launched Baleno – 90 bhp and 113 Nm. CNG option is planned for launch later.
Maruti Wagon R facelift will continue to rival the likes of Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago in the hatchback segment. Given the fact that it comes in with enhanced features and improved safety, a slight increase in price is also inevitable by Rs 10,000-15,000 over current pricing. The outgoing Wagon R is priced between Rs 5.18 lakh and Rs 6.58 lakh (ex-showroom). The updated WagonR hatchback is scheduled to hit showrooms in late March 2022.
