The official website of the car has also went online but it bears only a dark silhouette of the car. The website reads, “Get close to a car that’s just your thing!”
The Stingray adopts a completely different front fascia compared to the regular Wagon R. The projector headlamps, chrome finished front grill and a large secondary air dam render it a sporty appeal to an otherwise mundane family hatchback.
Except for the alloy wheels, there is nothing new in the profile of the car.
The taillights of the Stingray are highlighted by chrome cladding. The name “Stingray” is etched on the chrome strip above the license plate enclosure. On the inside, the car gets all black interior instead of the normal Wagon R’s dual tone theme.
Under the skin, the Wagon R carries no changes. This means it’s powered by a 1.0 liter K-Series petrol motor pumping out 68PS and 90 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Stay tuned to Indian Autos Blog for live updates from the launch floor tomorrow.
