Maruti Suzuki has unveiled its latest offering in the form of the WagonR 'Stingray'. While the boxy car has been a perennial favourite, we list here 10 points of appeal that the 'Stingray' flaunts.
More sporty, more stylish, the boxy Maruti Suzuki WagonR revamp gives it more than just a new name, the Stingray. The launch of this swanky hatchback is purely a strategic move by the company to combat the slowdown in the auto market. Stingray showed up with starting price of Rs.4.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
