Spy pics of the new Maruti Wagon R (2019) have been leaked online. The latest iteration of the 'tall boy' Maruti Wagon R is expected to be launched in India sometime in mid-2019, at a starting price close to Rs 4.5 lakh ex-showroom (India). It will be sold through the new range of Maruti Suzuki Arena showrooms that will be introduced next year.

We are not sure if the new Wagon R comes with alloys or steel rims, but they seem to 14-inchers. Other details include a rear windscreen wiper, chrome garnish, ORVMs with turn signals, and the widened wheel arches.

Transmission choices include a five-speed manual or its respective AMT unit. A CNG variant of the 2019 Wagon R will also be introduced at a later stage, while even an electric version was recently showcased.
Features such as a touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry and some safety equipment will be part of the package.Maruti Suzuki recently launched the new Ertiga MPV with a lot of improvements over the previous model; the samewill be the case for the new Maruti Wagon R.

The Maruti Wagon R has always been an ideal choice for the city. The compact design and generous amount of headroom makeit a good option for tall passengers as well. With the new Hyundai Santro on the market, the 2019 Wagon R will definitely showcase some competition.
