It now sits on the Heartect platform and has grown significantly in size. The new WagonR is 3,655mm long, 1,620mm wide and 1,675mm tall. This makes it 56mm longer, 130mm wider and 25mm shorter. The Wheelbase too has increased by 35 mm to 2,435 mm. Shoulder room and knee room have also seen gains. The hatch is also lighter than before, up to 65kgs , the base LXi weighs a measly 805kgs.
The LXi and VXi 1.0 litre variants will come with 13-inch wheels. The 1.2 litre VXi and LXi trims will get larger 14 inchers.

Joining it in the line-up is the 1.2 litre petrol motor from the Swift and Baleno. This makes 83PS and 113Nm. Both units are mated to a five-speed manual or an AMT.
