Maruti Suzuki is working on a more premium and upmarket version of the Wagon R, which might launch next month in the Indian market. It could be christened as XL5 and sold through the NEXA premium chain of showrooms. The company had introduced the new third-gen Wagon R in January this year and it has received an overwhelming response from the buyers. Recently, it was spotted testing on the Indian roads with camouflage through a few details of the rear end was still visible.

Going by the spy-shots, the Maruti XL5 will have LED taillamps and high mounted stop lamps. Although, it is not very different from the regular hatch as the pattern of tail-lamps is still vertical. The major styling updates are expected to be at the front fascia with a tweaked grille, headlamps, and bumper. The projector headlamps will get LED daytime running lights (DRLs). In addition, the ground clearance could be higher at around 180mm. The cabin could feature an all-black theme, similar to the XL6, alongside an array of new features being offered. Maruti had recently launched a more premium and 6-seater version of Ertiga MPV and it has received a decent response with 2356 units sold in the first month itself.
