Maruti Suzuki has introduced another variant of the Wagon R called the ‘Felicity’. This limited edition variant will be sold alongside the other variants available in the Wagon-R range.
The Wagon R Felicity will be sold in two variants – Lxi, Vxi and Vxi AMT, and prices range from Rs 4.40 lakh to Rs 5.37 lakh. The Vxi ‘Felicity’ comes with a rear spoiler, new body graphics in the exterior and a new steering cover and PU seats, reverse parking sensors with display and a double-din Bluetooth system. All this extra kit costs about Rs 27,000 more in the Lxi and Rs 18,000 more in the Vxi AMT.
S. Kalsi, Executive Director Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited stated at the launch that, “the Wagon R is one of the most successful car brands ever in India. It has been among India’s top five best selling cars for the last five years in a row. We wanted to celebrate the brand by creating something distinct and special, which is fresh and feature rich.”
The Wagon R comes with the smooth and efficient K-series 1-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine that makes 67.5bhp of power and 90Nm of torque. It’s a nice nippy hatchback for the city but feels a bit long in the tooth compared to modern hatchbacks like the Renault Kwid.
