All engines come mated to a five-speed manual, however the 1.2-litre variants are also offered with Maruti's AGS automatic transmission. A CNG variant is also on offer. We expect the WagonR Stingray to carry the same engines and transmission options as well.

Thoughts About The New WagonR Variant Spied

The WagonR has been Maruti's best-selling hatchback in the past. The WagonR with its tall-boy and boxy design makes for a roomier and practical cabin. However, the current model is more appealing as compared to the older models. Now we have to wait and see if the upcoming version would be some mutant combo of the Ignis and the WagonR, with the new design overall.
