A purely Japanese phenomenon: small cars up to 3,4 m, width up to 1.48 m, equipped with engine capacity of less than 660 cm 3 and a power of not more than 64 hp Suzuki Wagon R – typical key car, a tall, unsightly, on small wheels narrow, but quite roomy, practical and comfortable. The sixth generation of “trailers” debuted in three guises – FX, FZ, and Stingray, they differ in equipment and design of the front end.
The most interesting are the stuff the youth version of the Stingray with the American name, borrowed from the sports car Chevrolet Corvette, and headlights sketched in the latest models of Cadillacs. It is equipped with an overpressure of 64-strong “turbot Roy Koy” docked with the CVT. Crankshaft internal combustion engine belt drive is connected with an electric starter-generator capacity of 3 hp, which is powered by a compact lithium-ion battery and charging it at the same braking and coasting – Stingray, i.e., relates to a new tribe of inexpensive low-voltage hybrids. Recall that the low-voltage hybrids can not travel solely on electric, electrical components but allow them to reduce harmful emissions, lower fuel consumption and have a short-term additional power during acceleration.
The hybrid propulsion system available for a little more boring version decorated the FZ and FX, but the base engine for them is still a capacity of 52 hp aspirated and docked with the CVT.
Driving wheels in all versions of the default front, but there is all-wheel drive version with the dependent rear suspension (at the back semi-dependent scheme with transverse torsion beam).
New Wagon R later probably will be released in the form adapted to the Indian market, but the LHD version for Europe and Russia, unfortunately, is not expected.
