Maruti Suzuki WagonR has been around for years in the Indian market. The manufacturer updated the WagonR and launched the all-new version of the vehicle in the Indian market some time ago. The all-new WagonR remains a high-selling product in the market. Maruti Suzuki officially introduced CNG variants of its models in the Indian market and they have become quite popular too. Even the WagonR is available with a factory-fitted CNG powertrain.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR is currently celebrating its three lakh sales milestone. Maruti Suzuki has sold more than 3 lakh units of the WagonR S-CNG since its launch in the Indian market. Making the celebrations, the brand has introduced three new vibrant colours in its model line-up. The WagonR is now available with a new Nutmeg Brown Autumn Orange and Magma Grey colours.
The WagonR S-CNG is available only in two variants. There is an LXi and the LXi(O) variant. Both of them are powered by the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, petrol engine. It produces a maximum power of 58 Bhp and a peak torque of 78 Nm when using petrol. Maruti Suzuki only offers a five-speed manual transmission. There is a 60-litre tank for CNG in the car too.

The Maruti Suzuki WagonR is an extremely popular product in the Indian market and it remains high in demand too. The WagonR remains in the top-five best-selling cars in the Indian market. Even though it outsells all its competitors in the Indian market, Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch a more premium variant of the model to sell in the market.
For a long time now, Maruti Suzuki has been testing the more premium version of the WagonR under heavy camouflage. Reportedly, the upcoming vehicle will be known as the XL5 and will be sold through the Nexa dealerships of the brand. Maruti Suzuki is yet to reveal the details of the upcoming vehicle but it is likely to get a more premium and comfortable cabin and additional features. The changes will be similar to the Ertiga-XL6 models.
Maruti Suzuki is also testing the electric version of the WagonR on the Indian market. Many months ago, the manufacturers started testing about 50 units of the WagonR EV on the Indian roads. However, there is no new development on the same and we are not sure if Maruti Suzuki will launch the production model in the Indian market.
Maruti Suzuki has been contemplating launching a longer, seven-seater version of the WagonR in the Indian market too. However, even after reports in 2018, when the all-new WagonR was launched in the market, Maruti Suzuki did not launch it. If launched, the new 7-seater version of the WagonR will take on the likes of Datsun Go Plus, which is doing decently in the market.
