Rumour: Next-gen WagonR production to start from January 2019

According to a media report, the next generation Maruti Suzuki WagonR is likely to go into production in January 2019. Spy images of the car have already surfaced online as the carmaker prepares to launch the model sometime next year.

The new WagonR is expected to be based on the same platform as the outgoing model. The spy images suggest that the car will retain its tall boy proportions. The front end is expected to receive a redesign with larger wraparound headlamps, new grille and bumper, while at the rear, the hatchback gets vertically stacked tail lamp clusters, a near vertical rear windshield with wiper and a new bumper with integrated reflectors. 

Reports suggest that the new WagonR is likely to be offered with the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine as the current car, with a choice of a 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT. The WagonR is also expected to get a CNG variant.
