Maruti WagonR Stingray

Editorial Test Drive Review of Maruti WagonR Stingray


Maruti Suzuki WagonR Stingray Front View

The Stingray name plate is the latest addition to the popular Maruti Suzuki WagonR lineup, a car that continues to remain popular in both new and used car markets. In essence the Maruti Suzuki WagonR Stingray is a cosmetically tweaked version of the standard WagonR. And for the Rs. 26,000 extra asking price what you get is a smarter profile with tighter lines and a set of fantastic projector headlamps that provide excellent illumination be it on dark country roads or well lit urban streets.

Inside, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR Stingray remains the same as the standard car apart from a different instrument cluster and front foot well illumination. The rest of the cabon remains identical to the standard WagonR and is a nice place to be for the it’s price. You ofcourse have to acknowledge the sheer amount of space inside the cabin of the WagonR which adds to the value for money quotient of the car.

Under the hood, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR Stingray is powered by Suzuki’s 1.0 litre K10B petrol engine developing 68PS of power @ 6,200 rpm and 90Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm. The three cylinder engine has some vibrations during idling but once you get going it settles down nicely and acceleration is linear while power delivery is just adequate. The five-speed gearbox has light throws and gear ratios are well matched to ensure that you don’t have to change gears to often.

On the whole, the WagonR Stingray is a nice urban runabout and its smarter looks and projector headlamps are definite upsides.

Maruti WagonR Stingray Interiors

The cabin of the WagonR Stingray is very good for its price and fit and finish is good too. There is plenty of space for passngers in the large cabin. Although, practically could have been enhanced by bottle holders in the door pads.

What we like
Good quality interiors and lots of cabin space
What we don't like
Down rent look of instrument cluster

Maruti WagonR Stingray Exteriors

The WagonR Stingray has very well profiled looks that do set it apart from the standard WagonR. The blue shade also works well with the car and so do the new alloy wheels.

Blue lights in transluscent grille look down market

Cons Average Performance,

A very good car with stylish touch to every corner of it. Seems like a rebirth of a new Wagon R with more power and style. The top model has all the features of a new advanced car of a higher segment. The audio control and ABS and EBD are really welcome.

Cons Average Performance,CNG variant missing

Being a self confessed petro head, I was excited to see the WagonR with its new Refreshing looks.. Renamed the Sting Ray. No sooner was it Launched, I went in for a test drive at the showroom in Pune. The Looks The looks of the car are pretty much stunning, considering the flattened bonnet and the Twin head light. Not in any car in its class at present. The rear tail lights also gets a makeover which was nice to see, and also from a safety Perspective - small car - big lights... easy to spot on a dark road. The Interiors I got to see the top end version which has pretty much all the gadgets and goodies. The lower end versions have some minor deletions. The instrument cluster is nice and bright, easy to read and neatly designed. The lights are soothing to the eye. The seats are the same old seats which is not bad. The rear seat gets a slightly better leg room, including a slightly bigger boot space. Ingress and Egress is pretty much easy along with over visibility around. Practically no blind spots. The Drive This is where I was a tad disappointed. Considering that the other cars in its Competition are all 1.2 lts petrol engines, this one with a 1ltr engine was slow to respond. I took a drive on the highway, for a distance of about 7 kms. Also, as you push past 80, there is considerable engine noise and also a noticeable Vibration on the steering. The gear shift is smooth and delivers decent power on lower gears too. I tried to shift into the 4th on a straight road, with a speed of under 40kmph, and responded pretty well. The AC is neat and gives good cooling. The sales persons tend to put the AC on a higher setting. I changed it to the lower speed and yet it was didnt feel as though the engine was lugging. The Verdict For a loyal Maruti fan, this is a good car.I found the car to be a value for money proposition for a first time buyer or a second car to run small errands within the family. With the launch of the Grand i10, this car got some serious competition. Over all, good styling but lacks on the performance.
