Maruti Suzuki today has launched new Variants of Wagon R and the Stingray equipped with AMT, a move that will bring the affordable automatic gearshift technology to a larger volume of customers. Having already tasted initial success with the Celerio AMT and the Alto K10 it seems a fitting expansion for Maruti to lend one of its old warhorses, the Wagon R and its sportier sibling, the Stingray an AMT transmission.
Alongwith presenting the two variants with a convenience of clutch-free effortless shifting, Maruti Suzuki in its new found enthusiasm for providing much needed safety upgrades to its models, have presented optional safety features like driver and co-driver airbags and ABS which will be available as optional for all variants, including base models, of the Wagon R and Stingray.
Speaking about the launch of the new variants, Mr. R S Kalsi, Executive Director Marketing & Sales, MSIL has said that the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R will be the third brand from our model line up which gets the acclaimed Auto Gear Shift technology. With the AGS equipped Wagon R, the Indian car giant aims to democratize the technology for more and more customers enabling them to enjoy the convenience of automatic gear shift without compromising on fuel efficiency. The option of dual airbags and anti-lock braking further is aimed to further strengthens the core proposition of Wagon R and Stingray as ‘Smart’ cars.
