The next-generation WagonR is rumoured to get a new top-spec ZXi variant along with an automated manual transmission (AMT) variant called the ZXi AGS. We have also learned that a new 1.2-litre engine could be offered in the ZXi variant, while the base LXi and VXi variants are likely get the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder unit that powers the present model. A 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed AMT are likely to be offered in the ZXi and ZXi AGS variants respectively. 

Media reports suggest that the new WagonR will be based on the same platform as the current model. It will get a redesigned exterior featuring large wraparound headlamps, new grille and bumpers. At the rear, the car gets vertically stacked tail lamp clusters. It is also expected to come with refreshed interiors.

Maruti Suzuki is likely to launch the next-generation WagonR on January 23, 2019.
