2019 Maruti WagonR was recently revealed on the official website, putting important details on the internet regarding the updated version of the popular tallboy hatchback. The production version of 2019 Wagon R is using an MPV-style rear end with tall Volvo-inspired LED lights and an impressive glass area. Most cars of the compact segment are sacrificing the glass area from all sides but WagonR stays true to its origin and offer impressive glass section for airy interior feel. The front lights are seen with a similar curve, scrapping the idea of using sharp dual barrel units seen on the international model that was earlier expected to be the India-spec WagonR.
The floating roof design is visible only from the rear as a black piece breaks the contact between C-pillar and the roof from the outside. On the front side, the pillar and ORVM panel stays body-coloured. The rounded edges make India-spec WagonR different from not just the international version but also from the current generation model. The curve in the bonnet seems to appear due to more emphasis on pedestrian protection. The design inspiration for the new WagonR can be seen in the Maruti Ertiga, leaving buyers with a mini-MPV like feel on the outside for 2019.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR is based on the HEARTECT platform for effective cost management. Also, the addition of high strength metals to improve the overall rigidity of the car is praiseworthy. The 1.0L, three-pot petrol engine on the car is good for 69 PS and 90 Nm of torque. Those looking for more power will get the 1.2L engine on the top-spec version. The addition of Maruti’s iconic Smartplay infotainment system as a segment-first feature is also equally impressive. The car will retain its price bracket as moving up may force buyers to consider other options like Swift and Grand i10 in this segment. The range is expected to fall between INR 4.50-6.00 lakh (ex-showroom). New WagonR will be officially launched in India on January 23, 2019.
The car will be available in 12 different variants while colour options available here are Silky Silver, Magma Grey, Superior White, Autumn Orange, Brown, and Blue. Click here for complete specifications and variant list for 2019 Maruti Wagon R.
