The updated Maruti Wagon R has been launched in India with a slew of tweaks and changes, largely under the bonnet. It’s powered by a more efficient 1-litre DualJet engine and a new, more powerful 90PS 1.2-litre DualJet engine that’s available in higher-spec variants. 

Here’s the Wagon R’s new variant lineup and prices:

On the outside, the changes are minimal, but the Wagon gets a new set of 15-inch alloy wheels. Top-spec ZXI+ models are now offered with two dual-tone roof options, Galant Red and Magma Grey, each with a contrasting black roof. The dual-tone variants cost an additional Rs 12,000.

Inside, the Wagon R’s dual-tone interiors are similar to the outgoing model, but the new car gets a ‘dark grey melange’ seat fabric. It is equipped with a 7-inch SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment system paired with four speakers (two additional speakers than before).

Outgoing Wagon R's interior for representational purposes

Base and mid-spec variants of the new Wagon R are powered by the new 1-litre petrol DualJet engine from the Celerio that makes 67PS and 89Nm. It has an impressive claimed fuel economy of 25.19kmpl (24.35kmpl in the manual), 16 percent better than the outgoing 1-litre Wagon R. You can get this engine with factory-fitted CNG in the S-CNG variants. Maruti claims a fuel economy of 34.05km per kg for the Wagon R S-CNG.

From the ZXI trim level onwards, the Wagon R can only be had with the new 90PS/113Nm 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine. It makes a bit more power than before and returns a claimed 24.43km to the litre (23.56kmpl in the manual variant). All variants come with a standard 5-speed manual gearbox, along with an optional 5-speed AMT. The non-CNG variants also get idle start-stop for more fuel saving.  

The new Wagon R doesn’t get the major safety updates we’ve seen in the new Baleno, but it does add a hill-hold feature in the AMT-equipped variants. Other safety equipment includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors. 

Maruti is also offering the Wagon R with new subscription plans, starting at a relatively affordable Rs 12,300 per month price. The hatchback rivals the Hyundai Santro, Tata Tiago, and Maruti Celerio.
