The top spec version spied on test also features a 12V phone charging socket, electrically adjustable mirrors, four power windows, manual air conditioning and a multifunction steering wheel. Known for its practicality, the new Wagon R is also expected to offer additional pockets for knick-knacks, cup and bottle holders.
