It comes on the back of the Indo-Japanese manufacturer launching ‘Maruti Suzuki Subscribe’ in major cities like Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai and Ahmedabad.
With Wagon R being a consistent seller for the brand, the subscription plans will only help in reaching out to more buyers. The five-seater is sold from the regular Arena dealerships and customers will pay an all-inclusive monthly subscription charge starting at Rs. 12,722 for WagonR Lxi entry-level variant and Rs. 13,772 for the Ignis Sigma in New Delhi, inclusive of all taxes, for a tenure of 48 months.

The Maruti Suzuki Subscribe comes with all-inclusive monthly fee covering maintenance, 24×7 roadside assistance and insurance for the complete tenure of the plans chosen. Depending on the preference, the customer can avail plans for 24, 36, and 48 months. Following the closure of the subscription tenure, the customer can choose to extend the existing plan or upgrade to a new vehicle or even buy what has been used by them at market price.
The subscription schemes do give an additional option for customers to think about before choosing a vehicle and it depends on how often they use it and the running costs involved in normally owning it.
