India's largest auto manufacturer has launched the third-gen Maruti Wagon R at a starting price of Rs 4.19 lakh. The new model is offered in four variants and with two motor options.

The new-gen Maruti Wagon R sports a more stylish look and measures greater in length, width and height than the outgoing model. Specifically, the 2019 Wagon R is 3,665 mm long, 1,620 mm wide and 1,675 mm high with a 2,435 mm wheelbase. It features square 'dual-split' headlamps and a rectangular grille in the front; black B-pillars, ORVMs with integrated turn indicators, a floating roof with a black area on the C-pillar on the side profile; and high taillights which remind us of the newest-gen Ertiga in the rear.
