In fact, the wheelbase is identical to the Ignis, indicating that the new Wagon R might be based on the same Heartect platform. The Heartect platform also underpins the Swift, Dzire, Ertiga and the Baleno.

The outgoing model is priced from Rs 4.15 lakh to Rs 5.39 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).  While the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R range is expected to begin around the same price point, the prices of the variants with the bigger engine might go up slightly.
