Perhaps the best car MSIL made (ofcourse after the M800)... We have been carpooling in my friend's WagonR for the last 2 years and we just love it. Infact, my wife who is now learning to drive is keen to pick one up shortly (perhaps a pre-owned one or wait till Stingray AMT gets launched). Very practical, no-nonsense car... !!

I wouldn't believe that news item.

(1) The WagonR in the picture is the previous generation JDM WagonR which was sold from 2008 - 2012. The current generation WagonR looks different as in the pic I have attached.

(2) If MSIL was going to launch this version in India, they wouldn't be driving it around with zero camouflage on permanent registration plates (they are not even test vehicle plates).

(3) The bonnet / front over-hang looks to be the same as the JDM WagonR, which indicates that it has the same 660cc engine as the JDM Kei car. Whenever a new WagonR is launched in India, MSIL redesigns the entire front-end to fit the K10 engine and in turn makes the overhang disproportionate and a bit well, ungainly.

(4) The probable reason why MSIL imported this vehicle was to study / benchmark the idle stop system for the next generation / face-lifted WagonR.

Oh, and lastly,

(5) YR9 is the model code of the current India spec WagonR which was launched in 2010.

But for all you know, I may be completely wrong.

Cheers

Maruti Suzuki WagonR has recently become the third vehicle from the company’s stable to reach the 2-million unit sales mark after the Alto and becomes automaker’s third vehicle to ink this big record.

Quote:
As the number of launches in the mini segment is drying up owing to a shift in customer demand and the company’s focus towards premium products, it is quite an achievement to reach the 2 million sales mark. In fact, after staying subdued for a couple of years due to poor demand in the rural and semi-urban markets, combined volumes of Alto and WagonR have recovered and increased 28.6% y-o-y to 2,92,442 units in the first five months (April to August) of the current financial year. During the same period, volumes of WagonR grew 3.4% y-o-y, while for Alto, it increased 16.7%. In FY17, the volumes of WagonR increased just 1.6% to 1.72 lakh units, while in FY16, the volumes spiked by just 0.43% to 1,61,250 units.

I own one since the past 3-4 months and it is my daily drive, but I somehow find the Waggie a bit characterless to drive. It is better suited to those who don't want driving to be a burden in addition to the other daily routines. Certainly not for those who want a boost of adrenaline in the mundane daily commutes.

Rants apart, it has been quite Fuel efficient and can sit 4 well built adults comfortably, which is why I believe it is selling like hot cakes.

Default Maruti WagonR crosses the 20-lakh sales milestone

The cumulative sales of the Maruti Suzuki WagonR hatchback have crossed the 20 lakh mark. It is the company's third model to achieve this feat after the Maruti 800 and Alto.

Maruti WagonR sales. EDIT: Crosses the 20 lakh milestone!-wagonr.jpg

The WagonR was introduced in the Indian market back in 1999 (18 years ago). The model received a first facelift in 2003, followed by the introduction of the WagonR Duo LPG in 2004. A revised version of the car was launched in 2010 along with a CNG variant. Sales of the WagonR crossed the 10 lakh unit mark in 2011. In 2015, Maruti introduced an AMT version (AGS) of the car and also equipped the vehicle with dual airbags and ABS. In 2017, a new top-end VX+ variant was added.

The WagonR is powered by a 998cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 67 BHP @ 6,200 rpm and 90 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm. The CNG-powered engine churns out 58 BHP and 77 Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is offered as standard, while a 5-speed automated manual transmission is available as an option on select variants.

According to Maruti, 45% of WagonR customers bought it as their first car, while 20% purchased it multiple times. Since the introduction of the automated manual transmission, the AGS variant accounts for 16% of the total WagonR sales, while CNG accounts for 20%.

Cumulative sales milestones since launch (1999):
  • 2004: 1,00,000 units
  • 2008: 5,00,000 units
  • 2011: 10,00,000 units
  • 2014: 15,00,000 units
  • 2017: 20,00,000 units

Default Re: Maruti WagonR crosses the 20-lakh sales milestone

This is another Omni for Maruti where they have carried out minimal changes in every face lift yet the love of buyers for this machine was consistent even when there were multiple choices within 10 - 15% price difference.

The tall boy design with acres of headroom, simple mechanical and an all rounder nature for city runabouts is the USP of this car. Availability of parts is very similar to erstwhile 800 and people say that not even once they have to wait for any part to arrive at the ASS, typically all parts are available every time without fail !

What else is called at "complete peace of mind" !

It will do 3 million mark unless the revised safety norms going to be introduced shortly in the country make it redundant !

Leave aside 4 speed, a friend is happy with the 3 speed TC offered in WagonR as it is absolutely trouble free for countless number of years !

18 Till I Die! Wagon R deserves this amazing feat, as it is the de-facto 1st time buyer's car who wants ease-of-use, low running costs, sense of space and long-term reliability.

We had bought one for my grand-dad in 2003 who found the WagonR to be best in terms of ingress and egress comfort for his knees. Good visibility and not that rev-happy engine aids in safe and stable progress.

CNG fitted one is lapped up readily by the fleet market and frankly has no competition.

Wishing more milestones to the trusty work-horse. An electric future maybe?
