WagonR: When your Middle name is JDM
With its tall proportions, small foot print and upright shape, the Wagon R was never meant to be a looker. The first two generations have been unashamedly boxy. The new one has been made to look less slab sided than its predecessors. There are some character lines on the doors and the wheel arches are more pronounced. It is also based on the Ignis chassis this time, so it is a lot wider than before. The bonnet appears shorter and that gives it a very Japanese look. The C pillar with the black trim gives a floating effect to the roof. For a practical runabout, the new Wagon R is a very good design.
Our photoshop expert Rahul K Dinesh has come up with these two renders that highlight the JDM flavour. The top one uses a bright orange paint job, time honoured Watanabe wheels, blacked out grille and a contrast roof.
Our favourite render though is the one at the bottom. The car looks so much more JDM in white colour, coupled with classic Enkei Works alloys in white. The blacked out grille, amber indicators in the headlamps, red highlight on the bumper are so well executed.
