The next-generation Maruti Wagon R will use the same engine and transmission options. Prices are expected to increase slightly due better features and safety kit.
The next-generation Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is all set to launch in India on the 23rd of January 2019. This iteration of this compact hatchback is going to be its third generation full-model update. And with this, we are expecting it to come with a complete overhaul and an all-new persona.
