The new spy pics showcase the car in heavy camouflage. However, the front part of the hatchback clearly showcases the dual-headlamp setup, with the DRLs on top and the main units placed a bit lower on the bumpers.

We also expect the new XL5 to feature a new front grille, different from the one on the standard WagonR. Although camouflaged, the spy pics also showcases a tweaked air dam on the bumpers, with the fog lamps positioned on either end.

The rear profile seems to be very similar to the standard WagonR. However, we do expect the XL5 to receive a refreshed taillight design, along with other minor changes to the rear profile.

In terms of engine options, the new Maruti XL5 will carry forward a BS-VI compliant 1.2-litre K12B petrol unit, which also powers the WagonR. Power output will remain the same at 82bhp and 114Nm of peak torque. It will come paired with the same five-speed manual transmission with the optional AGS automatic gearbox also on offer.

Thoughts On The Maruti XL5 Premium Hatchback

The Maruti Suzuki XL5 will be sold as a premium version of the WagonR through the brand's Nexa dealership. The new premium hatchback will be based on the same platform, will feature similar equipment and overall silhouette of the popular WagonR model.

The XL5 will be priced slightly higher than the WagonR, at around Rs 4.5 lakh, ex-showroom. We expect the Maruti Suzuki XL5 to make its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo.
