WagonR now offered with Auto Gear Shift, dual airbags and ABS

India’s leading passenger vehicle maker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) today announced that it will offer the acclaimed Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology in WagonR and Stingray.

The auto gear shift transmission will be available in VXi variants of both models.

In addition, driver and co-driver airbags and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) will be offered as an option across all variants, including base variants, of WagonR and Stingray.

Introducing the new variants, Mr R S Kalsi, Executive Director Marketing & Sales, MSIL said, “WagonR is one of the strongest brands in the Indian car market and it has been one of the top five selling cars in the country. WagonR will be the third brand from our portfolio to get the acclaimed Auto Gear Shift technology. By introducing the AGS in a popular car like WagonR, we aim to democratize the AGS technology so that more customers can enjoy the convenience of automatic gear shift without compromising on fuel efficiency and at an attractive price.”

“The option of dual airbags and anti-lock braking further strengthens the core proposition of WagonR and Stingray as ‘Smart’ cars,” he added.

Auto Gear shift is currently offered in Celerio and Alto K10.

Auto Gear Shift Technology
Auto Gear Shift also known as Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) is equipped with an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that automatically performs clutch and shift operations. Auto Gear Shift combines the actuator and controller and directly mounts them in the transmission in order to unify the working components. This permits synchronized control over the clutch and engine for smoother gear changes. The shifting time is also shortened as compared to conventional automatic transmissions.

Mated with the 1-litre K-next engine, the new generation transmission with optimized ECU calibration helps WagonR and Stingray deliver high fuel efficiency. The AGS variants of both these models offer a mileage of 20.51* km/l, same as the manual transmission.

WagonR is available in petrol and CNG fuel options. The introduction of Stingray in 2013-14 added excitement to the WagonR portfolio. Now with the introduction of AGS and more safety features, WagonR is set to create new standards in the hatchback segment in India.
