However, the big addition is the dual-tone colour scheme with pillars and roofline finished in black colour while the black multi-spoke alloy wheels are brand new and they look identical to the ones found in the latest Celerio. Speaking of the launch, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said,
“Over 1 in 4 WagonR customers replace it with a new WagonR. Over the years, Wagon R has become the choice of over 2.7 million families. The New WagonR is geared up to take that legacy forward with its robust and energetic performance, dual-tone exterior, enhanced interiors, 12+ safety features, convenient features and higher fuel efficiency. We are confident that the New WagonR will exceed consumer expectations and continue to be the preferred choice of many more Indian families.”
The two-tone colour brings a floating roof design and it is available in the Z+ variant in two new colour combinations such as Gallant Red with Black roof and Magma Grey with Black roof. The updated entry-level hatchback gains beige and dark grey melange seat fabric design and the melange effect is said to accentuate the cabin comfort.
Just like the recently launched Baleno facelift, the 2022 Maruti Suzuki WagonR comes with idle start/stop tech in petrol variants and HHA (Hill Hold Assist) in AMT variants. The top-spec models continue to feature a seven-inch SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone navigation and four speakers.
It is supported by cloud-based services for the connected experience. The Dual Jet, Dual VVT technology with cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) enables the new Wagon R to achieve higher fuel efficiency with lower emissions according to the brand.

The factory-fitted S-CNG option comes in both LXI and VXI variants powered by the smaller gasoline unit. The 1.2-litre K-Series Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine with ISS delivers 24.43 kmpl (ZXI AGS /ZXI+ AGS), more economical than the outgoing model by 19 per cent approximately.
It can be had in both manual and AMT options (available in VXI and above Petrol variants only).
