The Maruti WagonR is one of India’s top 5 selling cars.
Maruti Suzuki has added a new top-end VXi+ variant to the Maruti WagonR. Essentially a rebadged Stingray, it gets both AGS (Auto Gear Shift) as well as a manual gearbox.
The Maruti WagonR VXi+ is based on the Stingray variant which comes with the bells and whistles like projector headlamps and an extra dose of chrome on the grille and taillamp. The car also gets alloy wheels and side skirts. Safety features include dual airbags and ABS with Electronic brake force distribution system, as optional.
Mr R. S. Kalsi, Executive Director Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said
WagonR has had a phenomenal journey since its launch. Maruti Suzuki has delivered over 19 lakh WagonR. The WagonR VXI+ has been introduced to meet customer demands, who have desired for more style, along-with comfort, convenience and advanced safety features. The WagonR VXI+ defines unique design interventions both on the interiors as well as exteriors. It would strengthen the WagonR brand and help to enhance Maruti Suzuki’s market share.
The powertrain is the same 1.0 litre K10B petrol mill which is capable of producing 68 PS of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox or an AMT which Maruti calls as AGS. The car returns a fuel economy of 20.51 kmpl both in manual and AMT versions.
