Maruti Wagon R 2019- Exterior

The 2019 Maruti Wagon R will have an all-new design that will look much more modern and attractive. That said, it will continue to have a tallboy architecture. It’s not for sure if the India-spec model will look much like the version on sale in Japan.

However, chances are that the two versions will share many design cues between them. Underpinning the new generation Wagon R will be Suzuki’s new lightweight platform that not only makes the car lighter but also safer.

Safely expect Maruti to use chrome for the grille and some other styling bits of the exterior. The headlamps will be chunkier and will carry projector setups on the top-end model.

The bumpers will be also larger and will look sportier. It is not sure if Maruti would re-launch the Stingray brand with the next-gen of its popular tallboy.

However, in case that happens, safely expect the sportier version to have an edgier body kit and less chrome. The new-generation Wagon R is already on sale in the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM).

The latest version of this tallboy boasts a modern design, a long list of features, and better safety equipment. The India-bound new-gen model won’t look exactly like the JDM-spec car, but will definitely share the platform. It will also get most of the features that are available abroad.

This hatchback has been a highly successful brand for Maruti Suzuki. In it’s second-generation here, the car continues to impress many with its practicality and frugality. However, it has started to age really fast and an all-new model can definitely help the company find more buyers.

Even the interior of the new Wagon R will be totally different from the current model. The next generation will offer much more space and even higher practicality. It will be also made up of better quality materials.

The highlight of the dashboard will be a touchscreen infotainment unit that will further elevate the premium feel of the cabin. Also, the buttons and the knobs will have a much better feel to them. Other than this, the cabin will not only offer more space but will also be more flexible to carry additional luggage.

Unlike the current version, which has a black-beige cabin, the next generation car will have an all-black treatment. The Stingray version, if it makes to India, will have red accents to add a touch of sportiness.

  1. India is producing tall children, so tall boy cars are essential,Maruti Wagon R needs to be upgraded with a 1200 CC petrol engine, slightly wider body and wider tyres,more particularly in view of phasing out the Maruti Ritz another tall boy car

  2. CC should be increased, front seat, back seat hand rest and touchscreen should introduce, wider body and boot space should be increased. its boot space is very poor.

  3. Thigh support is small in current wagon R model.
    This is very uncomfortable as the Northern Indians are comparitively taller ( 5ft 8inch plus ) & the passenger keeps Sliding to front while sitting in a running car.
    This problem must be rectified as long distance traveling in the car is very uncomfortable.

  4. Dear carblog, I own a 15 year old 2003 wagon r which has four cylinder 1100 cc engine which out performs present 2017 three pot cart in all respect. Therefore Suzuki should be wise in launching new wagon r with large heart. Otherwise it will be a futile exercise where indians are altogether different breed will reject in total. Regards Calnoor

  5. The width to height ratio defines the CG of the car and same is not proportionate in case of wagon R, coupled with lifeless light steering and punny tyres it gives this car a immense amount of body roll. I own a wagon r and I changed the tyres to thicker ones it has reduced a bit a body roll and improved handling but not satisfactory. I felt Ritz being same tall.boy design fares much much better than wagon R on twisty roads and has great driveabiltly on highways. The reason being Ritz it much wider and has bigger tyres than wagon R. So new WagonR needs to add some.more muscle to make it wider. 165mmr14 tyres should come standard. Less costly cars like datsun redigo easily out perform wagonRs in cornering manners. Which cost half the price of wagon R. So why can’t maruti increase the width of this car. Atleast 1550 mm width is needed to make it a better car. No complaints With engine though I loved this engine a lot. My waggie has run 1.20 lakh and belive me it’s engine is highly refined and power delivery is smooth but without AC. Love the turbo like pickup in 3 4 gear. But with ac on and 4 passengers it begs for one more cylinder. 1.2 litre 4cylinder engine will most welcome change

  6. Yes i m waiting for this new wagno r from long time…. i have to change my old wagno r by this new one….. plz launch it soon


  8. Will they sell by this year 2018? And if so what would be the price for new wagon r vxi 2018? Am going to buy a wagon r vxi ,But it doesnt have safety features as expected with this price range (5lakh)
