Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 2019 Design
From many spy pictures, we can say that the design language is going to be a bit different with LED and DRL’s making their way to the car. The bonnet is flatter and bigger too. There will be more space on the inside with more focus on luggage.
The side profile looks different too. There are several aspects that make it stand out. This also looks different, especially the rear window. The rear of the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 2019 looks different and it might be changed for the Indian market. The positioning of the tail lamps will be changed. The current design is trendy, it will be made more subtle and serious. The one in Japan has LED headlamps, daytime running LEDs and other features. We doubt some of these features will come to India also.
