Maruti Wagon R AMT – All You Need To Know

4

Maruti Wagon R and Stingray AMT launched

Following the success of the AMT equipped Alto K10 and Celerio, Maruti Suzuki India has now gone ahead and plonked the gearbox in the Wagon R and Wagon R Stingray. The demand for automatics in India has been on a continuous rise as more and more buyers are opting for the clutchless convenience of such vehicles even if it means shelling out a lakh or so extra. With the usage of AMT gearboxes, this price gap comes down to around 50,000 rupees, which is probably the main reason behind the popularity of this technology. Before we come up with a comprehensive Maruti Wagon R Automatic Transmission review here’s all there is to know about the new AMT-equipped versions of the popular hatchback.
