Nissan Moco, 1st generation

The first generation model went on sale on December 4, 2001, featuring Suzuki's K6A kei car engine, in either naturally-aspirated (40 kW / 54 hp) or turbocharged (44 kW / 60 hp) versions, available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. In all versions, the transmission was a 4-speed transmission with column shift. A hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle based on the first-generation MR Wagon was presented in 2005, using technology co-developed with General Motors.

The Nissan Moco version was presented as a concept car on the 35th Tokyo Motor Show in 2001 and only went on sale on April 10, 2002. The basic engine, drive and transmission choices were the same as for the Suzuki. The major difference between the Nissan and Suzuki versions was the Nissan's "wing" grille resembling that of the contemporary Nissan Primera P12. The sales of the Nissan version stabilized at about 3,000-4,000 units a month, actually exceeding the MR Wagon's sales. The first generation model went on sale in India in 2006 as the Maruti Zen Estilo. The Zen Estilo however, is powered by a larger F10D 1.1L MPFI engine that also powers the Wagon R in the Japanese market.

The First Generation MR Wagon is currently sold in India as "Maruti Suzuki Estilo", where it was known until 2009 as the "Maruti Zen Estilo". This transition has brought about a steady decline in sales for this model though the redesign has brought significant improvement in performance and styling over the car's Japanese variants.

Nissan Moco, 2nd generation

The model's second generation was previewed at the 39th Tokyo Motor Show in 2005, where a concept called Mom's Personal Wagon was presented, with many features intended to be useful for a mother driving her children, including food trays, a front bench seat and pillarless suicide doors on the left side (which is the the curb side in Japan). None of those would eventually make it to the actual MR Wagon, which went on sale on January 20 (Moco on February 1) the following year, while on the other hand the model features the new keyless entry and start system. The engine, drive and shifter choice remained the same, with the same availability in both Nissan and Suzuki versions, but the gear shifter is now located on the instrument panel. As with the first generation, the cars are almost identical in outside appearance, but have different front end designs.
