Maruti Suzuki is currently working on a comprehensively updated model of the Wagon R hatchback. Though there have been no official announcements yet from the automaker, sources close to the company suggest that the new Maruti Wagon R will likely be launched in India sometime next year. Production of the current-gen model is expected to come to an end by the end of this year. Hence, it is highly likely that we will see the new Wagon R being launched in early months of 2019.
Suzuki has already unveiled the new-generation Wagon R in the Japanese market. However, the India-spec model will likely come with a more toned-down design language. The new Wagon R 2019 has already been spotted testing multiple times in India. However, the test mules are heavily camouflaged. As a result, not much is known yet about the new model’s looks and design.
Nonetheless, there is a lot of interest about the new Maruti Wagon R 2019 in the Indian market. There are multiple potential customers that have decided to postpone their purchase decisions in order to have a look at the new-gen Wagon R. Hence, we have decided to bring all available information about the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R to your finger tips.

2019 Maruti Wagon R specifications
Maruti generally doesn’t change an engine that is widely accepted by Indian customers. The current-gen Maruti Wagon R is powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 67 bhp and 91 Nm of peak torque. There are two transmission options on offer – a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic. We expect the new-gen Wagon R 2019 to continue to use this powertrain setup.
