The video also shows scoops around wheel arches giving them a flared look though the WagonR will not receive alloy wheels and will get 14” steel wheels instead. The tail lights sport a vertical design and are positioned higher on the rear windscreen while a chrome strip with the name is seen over the license plate. 2019 Maruti WagonR also receives a floating roof design with black cladding on B and C pillars, rear windscreen washer and wiper and rear parking sensors.
