Please Maruti give us a 1.1 L 4 cylinder K-series engine with this popular and promising hatch. Heck, even the Eeco 73 BHP engine would be better suited than the A-Star engine.
I would say, put in the K12M, detune it for more bottom end torque and keep around 75 bhp. This would be sufficient for the All New Wagon R.
K12M is available in both Swift and Ritz now, so they will have good economies of scale.

Wagon R is seriously old enough to be retired.
This car is ALL NEW WAGON R.

This is an all new Wagon R and an all new platform. The car featured in this thread is the 4th generation Wagon R launched in Japan in 2008. Maruti this time has brought in the latest they had, unlike Ford that has given an Old generation car in the form of Figo. Hyundai, Suzuki are both bringing in the latest they have.

The only mistake Suzuki did is that they have altered the front end from the one sold in Japan. If they had not altered the front end then
1) People would just compare skin panels and say : Its an All New Wagon R.
2) The car would look better than the car in featured in this thread i.e. the altered front end looks.

About the car:

1) Boot space. The current generation Wagon R has one of the best boot in that segment, and its the most usable also thanks to the boxy design of the car. I doubt if we have similar amount of space in this car.

2) The AC vents. I fail to understand what exactly is wrong with Suzuki, and upto some extent even Hyundai. i10, i20 and now this Wagon R has the vents such that the left hand of driver will be chilled the most. Similar problem exists in Baleno because the entire console is a towards the driver, so the left hand is chilled. Bad design. This type of design is applicable in cars that have great width and rear AC vents, like LC, Innova, Endy, etc. Not in small cars. I would prefer normal vents like in Swift, Accent, etc. and they must direct air a bit upwards so that air reaches the rear passengers.

3) Engine. As mentioned earlier IMO, its better is Suzuki puts in K12M deutned to around 74-75 bhp, and tuned for higher bottom end torque. The K12M is already found in Swift, Swift Dzire and Ritz. Adding K12M to Wagon R will give them higher economies of scale.

The front fixed quarter glass is also missing. The ORVMs are there in it's place. hence the front door looks longer. Clever!

Definitely better looking than the current one. The interiors are also neatly done and don't look as bland as the current one. If this comes with a K12 engine, then it will be the segment leader.

The scoop-master did it again . The interiors look good quality, but the dashboard design is little SUV-ish!

Looks better, but more boxy. Do this have any impact on high speed stability?

It always will for its taller and not so wider stance!
This ain't a car to go racing three digit speeds and cornering like a sedan but still it cannot be written off. It has been serving the purpose to many for years now!!

Certainly not a car designed to do veryhigh speeds.

But for daily city traffic this car is simply UNCOMPARABLE.

Yes this one does look like its based on the latest Wagon R in Japan. Check out the interior pics & the dashboard is quite similar except for a different HU & in Dash Gear lever.

Sid as usual fantastic. Wondering how do you manage these scoops so consistently. There has to be something to it.

Please reveal the secrets

By the way, the interiors have improved on this version of the Wagon R over the previous one.

Look at the rear space of the WR in the pic Techno posted.

If its indeed as big as it looks, man this is seriously spacious.

Scoop master does it again. Great one Sid . This car definitely looks better than the current one. The front seems to be longer than the old version. This only indicates a new " Engine" . Overall, the car looks fresh and better.

Waiting for some more pics and details, Scoop Master-ji.
