Suzuki Wagon R MPV concept unveiled at 2013 Indonesia International Motor Show

In a surprise move, Suzuki unveiled a Wagon R MPV concept at the recently concluded Indonesia International Motor Show 2013. High demand of MPVs in Indonesia could have prompted Suzuki to develop a mpv concept on Wagon R platform, that could cater to the lower end of the mpv segment in the country.

Datsun and Honda had shown their MPVs based on GO and Brio hatchbacks in the beginning of the show. With Ertiga sitting on the top end of MPV segment, Suzuki seriously had a deficiency in the entry level mpv segment. As seen from the picture, a few millimetres have to added to Wagon R to accommodate the third row of seats. Company sources reveal, there has been no change in the wheelbase of the car.

Davy Tuilan, Marketing Director of PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales, says - “It’s still a concept and no decision has been made”. However, it has been confirmed that if this Wagon R goes into production, it would be a contender for the Indonesian LCGC (Low Cost Green Car) project, thereby availing some tax benefits.

Since he is speaking of tax benefits, will the Wagon R MPV come to India?. Suzuki might consider bringing it to India to keep the aging Wagon R going. Without a diesel engine it would be hard for Suzuki to convince its buyers for a mini MPV.
