    Maruti Suzuki recently launched the 2022 Wagon R with a pair of new engines and features, and also gave it mild cosmetic tweaks. Even the factory fitted CNG kit has been made available on more variants. Prices for the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R now range between Rs 5.40 lakh-7.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Maruti Suzuki has also used this opportunity to reshuffle the variant line-up and engine options available with each variant of the Wagon R. Here we take a detailed look at the variant-wise features and engine options available with the new Wagon R.

    • Maruti Suzuki Wagon R gets new ZXi+ top variant
    • Wagon R VXi now comes with a factory-fitted CNG kit
    • Gets new idle start/stop and hill-hold control

    2022 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R: gets two DualJet engine options

    The biggest update on the new Wagon R is a pair of new engines sourced from the Celerio and the new Baleno. The Wagon R’s 68hp, 1.0-litre K10B engine has been replaced by the new 67hp, 1.0-litre K10C DualJet engine that’s offered on the Celerio.

    Similarly, the larger 83hp, 1.2-litre K12M engine has been replaced by the 90hp, 1.2-litre K12N engine that’s offered on the new Baleno, Swift and the Dzire. Both engines continue to be offered with a 5-speed manual and an AMT gearbox. Maruti Suzuki has also retained the factory-fitted CNG kit on the Wagon R.

    This, of course, comes in the run up to the CAFE 2 norms, whereby, the Wagon R will have to comply with stricter emission norms as well as return better fuel economy. Features such as DualJet, Dual VVT (variable valve timing), cooled EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) and ISS (idle start-stop) tech on both the engines will help achieve the same.

    2022 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R: variant rejig

    Maruti Suzuki has also taken this opportunity to revise the variant line-up on the Wagon R. Previously, the Wagon R was offered in three trims – LXi, VXi and ZXi – with the 1.0-litre K10B engine being offered on the LXi and VXi variants, with the latter also getting the AMT gearbox as an option. Meanwhile, the 1.2-litre K12M engine was offered on the VXi and ZXi variants, with both getting AMT gearbox options. The CNG kit was only offered on the base LXi variant.

    Coming to the new Wagon R, Maruti Suzuki now offers it in four variants – LXi, VXi, ZXi and a new ZXi+ variant. Maruti Suzuki is offering the new 1.0-litre K10C engine on the LXi and VXi variants, while the 1.2-litre K10N engine is now available on the ZXi and ZXi+ variants. Additionally, the CNG kit with the 1.0-litre engine is now also available on the mid-spec VXi variant.
