Suzuki Wagon R Hybrid
Wagon R is small 5-door hatchback first launched back in 1993. Uptil 2016, there had been five generations of Wagon R. In 2017, Suzuki unveiled the 6th generation of Wagon R. And in this gen, the Japanese automaker also introduced this hybrid Wagon R
2017 Suzuki Wagon R hybrid is available in 3 variants,
Where FA is the basic variant, the FZ Hybrid is the top of the line model. It is available in both the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivetrain. The car we had for the review was the front-wheel drive with CVT FZ Hybrid variant. This kind of vehicle is also known as semi- or mild-hybrid which is explained below.
As for the dimensions of the Suzuki Wagon R Hybrid 2017 are concerned, the car is 3395mm in length, 1475mm in width, and is 1650mm tall. If you want to compare it with other Kei cars size-wise, Wagon R hybrid has exact dimensions like the Honda N WGN except for the height. Wagon R hybrid is 5mm shorter than the N WGN. The wheelbase of the car is 2460mm.
The profile of the car presents a neat look with minimum sharp edges and cuts. There is just one crease that starts from the front, goes over the wheel arches and meets rear brake light at the back. However, you will notice the rather odd design of the rear doors and how the metal work covers the corner of the window. Some might even think it is a two-door car at first glance due to the shape of the rear door. Since it was the top of the line FZ variant of Suzuki Wagon R Hybrid 2017, it also comes with side skirts. The tyres are 155/65R14 wrapped around 14-inch factory alloys.
Before I discuss the performance of the hybrid Wagon R, it would be better if I explain the concept of semi-hybrid or mild hybrid here and how it is different than the regular conventional hybrid systems.
What Suzuki has done is quite cleverly converted the conventional alternator, that is used to start the engine of a car, into a DC motor. Suzuki has dubbed it ISG (Integrated Starter Generator). The motor is used not only to start the engine of the car, but it also supplements the internal combustion engine during its regular operation. The major difference between the semi-hybrid and other conventional hybrid systems is that the motor is not capable of driving the wheels of the car on its own. In a car like Prius or Toyota Aqua, you can drive the car on just battery power. Whereas in this mild hybrid Suzuki Wagon R the motor only helps in providing additional power during the regular operations of the engine. The motor also helps in the idle start-stop scenario. The same motor helps to recharge the main as well as the auxiliary battery of the car when decelerating. The dedicated lithium-ion battery is placed under the front passenger seat.
Now let’s talk about the performance of the car. The dual overhead cam, liquid cooled, inline-3 internal combustion engine (engine code: R06A) of this 6th gen Suzuki Wagon R Hybrid makes around 53 horsepower and 60 Nm of torque whereas the electric motor makes approximately three horsepower (2.3 kW) and the maximum torque of 50 Nm). The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission. It is a typical engine gearbox formula that many Japanese automakers use.
If you have driven one of these 660cc Japanese cars, you will notice that they can be a bit sluggish. The engines are small, and on top of that, they have a CVT gearbox. That means a lot of lag and sluggish performance. Although it is kind of true in the case if hybrid Wagon R as well but with the help of the electric motor the small Suzuki engine performs fairly well. Yes, of course, there is that lag when you throttle the car hard, but it is not as much as found any other CVT Kei car; let’s say the Honda N WGN. You can feel the difference the extra torque of that motor makes during the normal city driving.
