Anyone who has news/specs of the WagonR LPG, please?
Planning on buying an economy car soon. Restricted to tall-boys (aging mother & her friends will be frequent passengers). My basic choices thus seem to be narrowed down to the WagonR and the Santro.
After a recent ride in the Santro, I was thankful to get out - for some reason, I felt claustrophobic - in the FRONT passenger seat.
'Course, I was carrying a laptop and bag, so that contributed to the clutter. Still, I'm short, and the legspace in front seemed quite cramped to me.
A friend directed me to your awesome forums, and I've been reading for the last 3.5 hours!
During this, I read the first mention I've ever seen about the upcoming WagonR LPG model. This sounds very exciting. My estimated daily travel is below 50 km, and I intend to use the car everyday only during the monsoons - otherwise I enjoy dodging traffic on my CBZ! I'd hoped to have the car before the rains, but if MUL are bringing out an LPG variant of the WagonR, that would be worth waiting for! It would also make impulsive joyrides not as expensive as on pure petrol!
Does anyone have any more news about the WrLPG? I'd like to know:
Thanks in advance for your comments and info!

Well, the sales guy at the Auto expo told me that the WagonR LPG is coming this June. This was again confirmed in a newspaper report a month back.
Regarding driveability, there wont be much of a difference between petrol and LPG. And if i remember correctly, the LPG cylinder was in the Boot.
Regarding legroom, yes WagonR has more front legroom than Santro. The seats of WagonR can push all the way back which gives even more legroom. BUT the rear legroom is not so good, and rear seats are not as comfy as Santro.

Thanks for the feedback!
Thank you, dceite and aZa!
I visited our local dealer in Goa and took a test drive. I prefer the WagonR over the Alto. I've logged quite a few miles on the 800, so it seems pretty old-hat driving the Alto :-)
The dealer rep says the LPG variants of both the Omni and the WagonR have been "discontinued" :( I guess this means they're not willing to get those down to sell them...
Looking around for the latest news item you mentioned, dceite; google returns 800+ hits, so will look through and see.
I guess I will need to play off dealer v/s dealer if I want to get them to cart down an LPG version.
Once again, thanks for the info.

Dealer has no clue man, Omni Cargo is selling hot cakes in delhi as its the only CNG ( Not LPG) varient maruti has..! Wagon R LPG/CNG are on target and will arrive mid-june...I'm really not sure that you may have CNG pumps in Goa...But Maruti does offer CNG kits for any Maruti you like, Same applies to almost every small car maker...!
CNG will be worth more than LPG in economy, Maintaince...!
