There have been rumours of Maruti evaluating a 7-seater Wagon R for India for quite some time now. The Wagon R-based Suzuki Solio has been spotted on multiple occasions which has led to further speculations. As per the information received, the 7-seater Wagon R has been confirmed for India and the production is due to start in September 2018. Maruti is also evaluating the possibilities to launch the new model sometime around November this year.

The Suzuki Solio is a sub 4-meter MPV that can carry up to 7 people. In the Japanese market, the Solio is offered with a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol hybrid that makes 90 BHP and 118 Nm of torque and comes paired with a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT). However, Maruti's existing petrol and diesel powertrains can be expected on the sub 4-meter MPV in India.
