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.
