Auto industries are recording slow or negative growth worldwide and in India, but that does not necessarily mean it will not bounce back in near future. Major automobile brands are trying their best to present something new and definitely better automobile with every new launch. Maruti in its attempt to draw renewed attention to its brand is all set to launch a new WagonR – named as WagonR Stingray, in coming months, in India.
Maruti design aspects in the entry-level vehicles cannot be termed ‘Stylish’ but definitely carries a decent aura about them. The new WagonR Stingray brings a refreshing sportier and cleaner look on its front with a flat bonnet, all-new bumper with bigger air dam and a slimmer grille. On it rear side; the compact car is likely to feature slimmer tail lamps with clear lens and fresh bumper design – carrying the name plate with a bolder stance, and a rear spoiler. However, the side of the automobile is unlikely to bring any new changes. The alloy wheels will add more charm to the overall look of the car and deliver higher performance. In its interior, the new WagonR Stingray is expected to receive minor tweaks and come with appealing upholstery. Under its hood, it will be powered by 1.0L K10 series motor engine. The four-wheeler is sure to deliver decent mileage producing 67 bhp of power.
The compact automotive segment is fiercely competitive in India, as higher sales percent are contributed from this segment. Indian auto market is very price sensitive and Maruti Suzuki competitively priced models had been quite popular in India, since its first model launched decades ago. Keeping with the brand’s reliability image, the all-new Maruti Stingray can do well in the Indian market. But having said that, the new Stingray has to compete well and prove its true metal to attract serious auto consumers in India.
