Another reader Mr. Bhushan. P had sent us an email listing the changes that he observed on the new model at a dealership he’d just been to. Mr. Bhushan says bookings for the new model have begun already.

Changes on the 2013 Maruti Wagon R facelift

  • New front grill change which we knew all along and perhaps makes the older version look a little better
  • Dual tone interior (beige + brown). Earlier there were dark gray and black interiors. The gray has been replaced with beige.
  • An additional glove compartment
  • Powered by the same 1L K Series engine that puts out 68PS of power and 90 Nm of torque, and comes in LX, LXI and VXI trims.
  • Seats are in beige fabric
  • Beige door trim fabric replaces a black layout
  • Stereo system (VXI) has bigger switches
  • The three fuel options would continue – Petrol, LPG and CNG – No diesel option in sight.

    NOT fair. I own current wagon R for only 2 yrs and now new changes. It will make my blue boy look old. 🙁

    O/w new biege color outside is really cool. Bumper is also fresh looking. Also interior biege dashboard is much better than current black. What I always wanted a clove box in front is now provided. Not fair actually. But one cant have all the fun. My blue boy will be mine for some more time. New owners just enjoy what we missed. 🙂

    I like the current Wagon-R. Exterior of face lifted one, looks “More Box per Box”.
