The new Wagon-R is dynamically different yet is identifiable as a part of the Wagon R lineage. It sports large pulled back headlamps, a new rectangular grill with three thick chrome strips and large bumpers with an air dam upfront!

From the rear the new Wagon R is very similar to the older model but looks broader and taller due to the new bumper design. The tail lamps retain the overall shape of the older generation model with only subtle changes.

On the inside it gets a new dual tone dashboard along with dash mounted steering wheel and gear knob. This gives the Wagon R a smarter look and creates more interior space as well.

The new Wagon R is 3.39 metres long which makes it shorter than the model presently being sold in India. This however does not mean that the cabin is any less spacious because the wheelbase remains unaltered at 2.4 metres. Also see: How to buy a used WagonR

The Wagon R that premiered in Tokyo sports a 660 cc 3-cylinder, petrol engine that makes 52 bhp (normally aspirated engine) and 64 bhp (turbocharged version). If and when the new Wagon R comes to India it will likely get the K series engine that does duty in the present Wagon R.

    The dash looks really cool but the Gear lever design may not suit manual shift that would most likely be available in India. Or if its going to be Dash mounted, then it should be redesigned like the ones in I10 or Ritz. On the exteriors, the Wagon R is much better looking. Its a perfect balanced design as it tries to appeal as a large car at the same time tries to hide its bulk…!!!

    we all know that this car is not going make a debut here, as maruti are not going to replace existing wagonR for at least five-six years, this article is a complete waste of time
