The Maruti Wagon R Stingray will soon be launched in the Indian market. Our regular readers would know that the car has already been spied while undergoing a photo shoot. These spy shots come from Autocar India reader Syed Ismail.
The front of the Stingray is where all the action is. It seems that Maruti would offer the projector headlights along with the slim looking grill finished in chrome. The bonnet is flat without any contours while the front bumper has a massive air dam. Judging by this car's number plate, it seems that Maruti could launch the Stingray anytime!
Towards the side of the car, the Stingray gets a new set of alloy wheels as we mentioned before. At the rear, the changes have been toned down. The Stingray in the Japanese market gets a completely different set of taillights. From these images it appears that Maruti has not bothered with any of that. A simple chrome surround has been added to the outline of the taillight cluster and that's that.
The chrome plated rear number plate holder has the 'Stingray' badging with 'Wagon R' subtly inserted underneath. There should be at least a couple of changes in the interior of the Stingray (maybe a different music system) to better differentiate it from the regular Wagon R.
Expect the Stingray to command a INR 30,000-40,000 premium over the regular Wagon R when it goes on sale.
