Latest on Maruti Suzuki Stingray: 28 May, 2015
Maruti Suzuki’s AMT technology has created a lot of ripples this year.

The WagonR is one of the best-selling Maruti Suzuki cars in India, which received premium upgrade as the Stingray. When it comes to exterior, except for the new projector headlights, front grille, bonnet, bumper and alloys, the overall design of the Stingray remains similar to the WagonR.
The cabin, however, received quite a handful of features that make it look more upmarket than the regular WagonR. The WagonR Stingray has multi-information display with blue back lighting, new instrument cluster etc. It gets all new black interior, piano black finish doors and dashboard, chromed side AC vents and door handles, leather wrapped steering wheel and new seat upholstery.

A 5-speed manual transmission is the only available option. The Stingray isn’t among the most fuel efficient Maruti Suzuki cars, but it delivers decent a mileage under standard driving conditions.

It has a ground clearance of 165mm.
Having an all black interior, piano black finishing on doors and dashboard, the hatchback looks more premium than the standard WagonR. The chromed side AC vents and door handles, leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls and new seat upholstery further enhance its appearance. It gets a multi-information display with blue back lighting, updated instrument cluster and various other comfort-enhancing features. It’s quite spacious from inside.

The Stingray is powered by a 1.0-litre K-Series petrol that produces a maximum power of 67.06bhp at 6200rpm with a torque of 90Nm between 3500rpm. Mated with a 5-speed manual transmission, it offers an impressive fuel economy of 17.08kmpl in city and 20.51kmpl on highways. It can accelerate 0-100kmph in 15.9 seconds, while maintaining a top speed of 120kmph -130kmph.
Performance and Handling
Power supply is linear and the mid-range performance is good. However, the engine feels strained at higher RPMs. The car breathes out at 6400rpm. The tall gear ratio aids to its highway performance. The NVH levels could be better. Driving dynamics and handling are mediocre. There is significant body roll. Ride is comfortable, though it gets bouncy at high speeds.
Brakes are powerful. It gets ventilated disc brakes at front axle and rear drum brakes. The ABS, available only on top-variant, avoids skidding and handles sudden braking situations.
The 998 cc Petrol - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 14 kmpl in city and 16 kmpl on highways
The hatchback is equipped with several active and passive safety features such as collapsible steering column, energy absorbing body structure with side-impact beams, 3-point ELR seatbelts, driver seatbelt warning indication, i-CATS, headlamps with head leveling device, front fog lamps, front wiper (2 speed + intermittent), rear defogger, child proof rear door locks. The rear wiper, washer and defogger and security system are offered from the mid-variant onwards, while the driver SRS airbag and ABS are available on the top-variant only.
The Maruti Suzuki Stingray is a premium version of the regular WagonR. Except for few exterior and interior updates, the hatchback doesn’t have much to offer. Since the extra features don’t cost much, it’s a good value for money product.
Maruti Suzuki Stingray Vs Hyundai Grand i10
The Stingray is a slightly premium version of the regular WagonR, which has received minor exterior and interior updates, while engine remains same. The Grand i10, based on Hyundai’s Fluidic design philosophy, looks sportier and more outgoing than its rival. Brimming with various entertainment and comfort-enhancing features, it offers best-in-class interior. When it comes to drivability, ride and handling, the Grand i10 certainly is a lot better car than the WagonR Stingray.
