  • The spied unit appears to be the top-end variant.
  • The hatchback will witness radical styling updates.
  • It will carry a lot of never-seen-before features.

Maruti Suzuki has been extensively testing the Wagon R XL5 for the last few months in the country. Recently, one of our avid readers Abhishek Mohan spotted a test mule of the new crossover in Gurgaon. Though, it was fully camouflaged but still we can notice some of the fresh styling elements that it is going to carry. The all-new Maruti Wagon R XL5 is expected to launch by the mid of this year in the Indian market while competing against Hyundai Grand i10 in its segment. It will be sold via the NEXA outlets, thus being the most affordable product in the NEXA outlets.


Going by the spy images, it is safe to assume that the spied unit is a top-end variant. One can clearly notice the black-finished alloy wheels and ORVMs with integrated turn indicators. As for the rear profile, the all new model comes with a newly designed vertical LED tail-lamp cluster, rear wiper with washer and a high mounted stop lamp. Though fully covered, the sculpted bumper with reflector inserts can also be noticed. The possibility of rear parking sensors making it to the list of standard safety features cannot be ruled out either. We do not have a clear image of the front fascia but as per the media reports, the Wagon R XL5 will flaunt all-new LED headlamps.

The cabin will come with an array of premium features including the SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. It will borrow some of the elements from the present iteration of the Wagon R. The safety features on-board will include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, high speed alert, seat-belt reminder etc. to name a few. Mechanically, the Maruti XL5 will be powered by a 1.0-litre petrol engine which will deliver a top power output of 66bhp @6000rpm and peak torque of 90Nm @3500rpm. The bigger and more powerful 1.2-litre petrol engine can also be expected with a power output of 80bhp and torque performance of 113Nm. The transmission choices on offer should consist of a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT unit.
