Of late, there has been an increase in the number of websites reporting the feasibility and launch of a diesel version of Maruti's popular hatchback, the Wagon R. Infact, we were among the first to post news on this (read - http://www.gaadi.com/Maruti-WagonR-Diesel) and now, the same is across various websites, the latest being this - http://www.dieselwagonr.com/
The Wagon R is a very practical vehicle for the Indian market. It has loads of space, easy of driving and a low sticker price. A 3 cylinder diesel motor (same as Chevrolet Beat diesel) makes sense too and if priced right, it could be India's cheapest diesel car by a huge margin!
We do see light at the end of the tunnel here - do you?
