Updated on 7th November: Maruti Suzuki has introduced the Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology in its Wagon-R and Stingray models today with the unveiling of their respective AMT versions. Available only in VXi variants of both models, Wagon-R Vxi AMT is priced at Rs.4,76,935 while the Stingray VXI will be sold at Rs.5,09,609 Lakh.
Along with the AMT versions, Maruti also offers safety features like Dual Airbags & ABS on all variants of Wagon-R and Stingray. Wagon-R’s VXi AMT (O) is priced at Rs. 4.98 Lakh, Lxi (O) at Rs. 4.39 Lakh and Vxi (O) at Rs. 4.64 Lakh.
In Stingray, Lxi (O) at Rs.4.58 Lakh, VXI (O) at Rs.4.86 Lakh and VXI AMT (O) at Rs.5.31 Lakh.
As the Maruti Celerio and Alto AMT’s are well received among customers seeking for tireless drive in jammed up Indian traffics, the AMT version of the practical Wagon R and the stylish Stingray hatchbacks will only make for instant hits.
In the realms of the affordable compact car segment, Maruti Suzuki has certainly laid down a benchmark with the aforementioned AMT(Automatic Manual Transmission) versions, thus the arrival of automatic variants in other models have come as no surprise.
In an exclusive news to GaadiWaadi.com, we can now report that the Wagon R and Stingray models fitted with automatic gearboxes are coming sooner than anticipated. It is in confirmation with the images that showcased both those models with ‘AMT’ badge on their bootlids.
About to go on sale from the middle of November, the Wagon R AMT has already reached the dealerships in preparation to be sold to the customers eyeing the sales spotlight during festival season.
Whilst the Stingray AMT would also hit the ground and running alongside its elder sibling, just as in the Celerio, the Wagon R AMT will continue to be powered by a 998cc K10B petrol motor generating 68PS mated to a Magneti Marelli sourced 5-speed automatic manual transmission.
Prices for the Maruti Stingray AMT are expected to increase in the range of 30,000 to 35,000 over the standard model and will be offered in VXi variants initially.
