Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Diesel
Expected Launch Date:
The entry-level diesel small car from Maruti Suzuki is the Ritz. In terms of sales numbers it is certainly not a failure, but not segment dominating like the Alto, Swift and the Dzire.
For a company that dominates every other segment in the sub-four meter vehicles, this is not the most ideal scenario.It might change soon. There are rumours that Maruti might introduce a diesel version of their highly successful entry-level hatchback, the Wagon R.
The Wagon R will compete mainly with the next generation Hyundai i10, which will be launched by the end of 2013. There is also a possibility that the diesel version of the hatchback will be introduced with yet another facelift.
The Wagon R diesel might start at Rs 4.25 lacs, while the top-end version could be around Rs 5.25 lacs.
