Both the Wagon R and the Ignis has comparable wheelbases (2435 mm for the Ignis compared to the 2400 mm for the Wagon R). However, Ignis is much broader than the Wagon R which will translate to better shoulder room in the Ignis. Though a tall boy, when it comes to height Wagon R is still higher in comparison to the Ignis. No doubt, the Wagon R will continue as the smaller brother of the Ignis and will complement the Ignis pretty well in the Maruti Suzuki line-up.
