WagonR Stingray is not coming to India.
The new WagonR is the Suzuki Splash which will come here in 2008.

Bring this and Maruti shoots itself in its foot - especially after the image-building exercise from the Swift and SX4.

Thanks guys. That was a mighty fast closure!
Well now i see why i for one would not be wanting to buy it (even if Godfather makes an offer i cant refuse )
If the Splash is a successor for WagonR in 08, i dont see a Stingray reaching anywhere near it.
Somehow i didnt find this when i searched for it. Thanks DCEite.

oh actually .. the new wagon r 2008 for the europen markets (which yeah has its most design cues from the splash) might make its way to india, seeing the success of maruti building a new image with the european styled sx4 and swift.
here is the link Suzuki Splash: It's Japanese for "Agila" - Autoblog

looks slightly better than the cosmetic job that wagonR just went thru. whats the big deal about it anyway....even if this is launched here, i don't think it'll hold a candle to the swift or SX4.

wayy to much bling!!! looks like it came straight out of a gangsta movie. whenever i see such bling-ed up cars i am thinking BIG BOOM BOXES!! they look like a big stereo with shiny metal on it.

well to be more clear - the car i intended to talk about was the Splash : New Suzuki Splash: First Details

Mods - if you will - please EDIT the title to say "Is there a WagonR Stingray for India and when? (Its SPLASH not StingRay)" ?
