2019 Maruti WagonR: All you need to know

Launch Date: 23rd January
Engine: 1.0 petrol, 1.2 petrol
Pros: Optional 1.2 engine, cabin space, optional AMT

Maruti Suzuki has officially initiated bookings for the upcoming all-new WagonR and pricing will be out on 23rd January. Made on a new platform, the 2019 Maruti WagonR has increased in external dimensions and yet weighs light without effecting the structural rigidity. This platform, Heartech, is the same base that the Ignis uses. The new WagonR will get the existing 1.0 engine along with an optional 1.2 motor that is seen on the Ignis, Swift, Baleno and the Dzire. For the first ever, Maruti will also offer an optional AMT (automated manual transmission) along with a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system that will support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The new 2019 WagonR will offer increased passenger space on the inside along with a quantum leap in terms of interior quality. Maruti will also offer driver side Airbag, ABS, rear parking sensor, seat belt warning and overspeed waring as standard across all versions. However, there will be no rear vents or alloy wheels on the outside. The new WagonR will lock horns with its arch rival, the recently launched Hyundai Santro. Interested?
