Maruti Suzuki has been gearing up to launch the new generation Wagon R in India and the test mule of the tallboy hatchback has been spied testing in Shimla. As it appears, the Indo-Japanese auto manufacturer is performing high altitude tests for the popular model. Also, despite a completely camouflaged appearance, the new test mule has revealed the outline of the upcoming car.

The new generation Maruti Suzuki Wagon R clearly carries the same tallboy appearance that is visible in the present model. However, it will come with significant design update for sure. The test mule reveals a larger glass area compared to the current model. Expect a revised headlamp, chrome garnished restyled new front grille and revamped bumpers as well.
