Guys this is the JDM version that is already on sale in Japan for a while. I do not think this is going to be launched in India. Possibly an early prototype that was brought to India before the India spec car was launched.

This car is the JDM model ( engine 660cc ), some design cues and features could be taken to the Indian Wagon R for the facelift launch. Seems like the car is undergoing component testing for the Indian conditions.

Maruti could come up with a small 660cc car. Engine testing of this continues now in with the CBU car Palette.

It is also speculated the Wagon R would be facelifted with the idling stop and changes to the interiors. They could adopt the idling technology for it's Complete K-Series Lineup.

More than a Wagon-R, it looks like an Ertiga to me. Seriously, MSIL with the amount of sales you get, going for some serious facelift shouldn't be a problem for you. Dissapointed!

I don't believe this article. Maruti Suzuki has been recently giving independent design refreshes to the WagonR and the car pictured above is the international version. I doubt Maruti would introduce it.

And that too, MS testing on the roads without camouflage?

I suspect the new 658cc engine is being tested for Indian conditions.

I remember seeing this somewhere on this forum. Its more likely what CrazyDriver is saying. Moreover I don't see any fog lamps available but ORVM mean that its a VXi.

This look like the Japanese 2015 Wagon R with a chrome treatment.
The interiors of 2015 Jpanese models are also different and is available in 2 and 4 WD versions. Take a look of the Indian and Japanese cars.

This is old news. They are testing the kei-car engines and the hybrid/ energy efficient technologies like "Idling Stop" with this car.

Below thread was started in May 2014 based on Gaadiwaadi news about the same car:

The JDM car's are fitted with smaller but turbo engines hence their bonnet is shorter as compared to Indian cars which come with a 1.0 K-series motor.

Wagon R is expected to get a facelieft soon according to a source.
