New Maruti Wagon R

The 2nd Generation Wagon R will launched in India on April 23rd, with an all new transmission, more space inside and a face lifted exterior outside. However, with the arrival of the new Wagon R, Maruti Suzuki has temporarily suspended the manufacturing of the Wagon R (Duo), which also gave the customer the option to the vehicle on LPG. The new car will be available in three variants including the Lx, Lxi and the Vxi, and the top-end version will be having an ABS, two front airbags, besides an integrated stereo. As of now MSIL would only be manufacturing the petrol version of the Wagon R which would give more power and fuel efficiency. The new Wagon R is thus roomier with a larger cabin space and increased leg-room for all passengers. On the other hand, Skoda Yeti, Tata Aria and Nissan Micra are the upcoming cars in India.
