Maruti Wagon R Stingray LATEST UPDATES

Although the first Wagon R appeared in 1999, the introduction of the Stingray has helped maintain its winning streak and has kept it a notch above the competition.

The Maruti Wagon R Stingray comes in five main variants: Wagon R Stingray LXI, LXI Optional, Wagon R Stingray VXI, VXI Optional, Wagon R Stingray AMT VXI, and AMT VXI Optional.

The Wagon R Stingray VXI comes with adjustable tilt steering, an integrated music system, and keyless door locking. The Wagon R Stingray VXI Optional comes with an anti-lock braking system, multi-function steering wheel, and driver SRS airbags. The Wagon R Stingray AMT VXI and AMT VXI Optional, both have automatic transmissions and all the variants come with the most room space in their category - the chief reason behind the model’s success.

The base model is priced at Rs. 4.30 Lakh ( Delhi ex-showroom) and the last two variants are priced above the five lakh range. The VXI version is priced at Rs. 4,58,355 ( Delhi ex-showroom). The VXI Optional has a price tag of Rs. 4,91,287. The AMT VXI version is priced at Rs. 5,05,769 and the AMT VXI Optional is priced at Rs. 5,38,700.

The Stingray has successfully bridged the gap that existed between the Wagon R and the Ritz. It has positioned itself as a premium version of the Wagon R and given that Estilo and A-star have underperformed, the Stingray has managed to punch well above its weight. It does, however, face stiff competition from the likes of the Hyundai i10 and the Ford Figo.

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

The Stingray is undoubtedly more stylish than other cars in its segment.

This is the first time in this segment that a hatchback is fitted with projector headlamps.

One of the distinguishing features of the Stingray is that it gives the impression of a big car while remaining small.

Pricewise, it is only Rs.22,000 more than its older version and if you could shell out a little more you could get a far better car with an automatic transmission.

On the flip side, the car is designed for city rides. So, once you get out of the city you will find it a bit difficult due to its soft suspension and high center of gravity.

One of the disadvantages with Wagon R has been that its reverse gear fails to engage and the problem only gets worse with age. The company has not addressed the problem in the Stingray.

Another issue with the Wagon R has been that its engine vibrates during high speeds and while idling as well.

Similarly, the manufacturer has not addressed the problem of engine knocking. The Wagon R requires a regular overhaul or you will have to put up with this problem of engine knocking.

It is a common complaint among Wagon R Stingray owners that the suspension gets a bit stiff with time. This means that its parts will wear out faster.

Although the Wagon R offers power steering, the steering gets wobbly over time and the company does not seem to have an answer to this.

One last disadvantage is that the manufacturer could have enhanced the safety system.

Maruti Wagon R Stingray EXPERT REVIEWS

The most important aspect of the Wagon R, namely its value-for-money feature, is retained in the Stingray and this is something that its competitors have to grapple with. But the rear of the Stingray has not been worked upon as well as its front. The company has retained the rear bumper of the Wagon R. The spacious interior with its cockpit-like dashboard is sure to enhance your driving experience. The chief feature that you look for from the Wagon R Stingray is its spaciousness. The Stingray is far more spacious than its counterparts in the same segment. The all-black interior gives it a rich look. That the competitors in the same segment don’t have such beautiful interiors is worth mentioning. The outside rearview mirrors are electrically adjustable. The power windows, the power steering, and steering mounted controls which are present in pretty much all the cars of its segment, enhance the driving experience of the car.

The Stingray branding is all over the interior. You can find it on the speedometer, seats, floor mats, door sill plates, and more. Although it isn’t much different from its predecessor, you will still feel it is superior to the older version. Safety equipment includes a driver-side airbag and ABS. The suspension is sure to help in riding in the city. But it can get unnerving once outside of the city. The USP of the Wagon R Stingray is its front look which is a snazzy and aggressive look that differentiates it from the rest of the competition. It was the first car in the segment to have used projector headlamps. It has retained the good qualities of its predecessor whilst also differentiating itself from the competition. All these qualities of the Stingray have played a part in boosting its sales and maintaining its leadership in the segment.
