Suzuki WagonR AMT launched in Indonesia; India launch this year

Maruti Suzuki, India's largest carmaker is also planning to launch the AMT-equipped Wagon R hatchback in the Indian car market. The automated manual transmission gearbox will be offered on the Wagon R Stingray edition. Under the bonnet of the hatchback is the same 1.0-litre K10 petrol engine that also powers the Celerio and Alto K10 versions.

 

Currently, Magneti Marelli is providing the AMT kits to Maruti in India for the Celerio and Alto. Maruti sourced around 3,500 units of the AMT gearboxes; however, the numbers will go up to meet the demand. Currently Celerio AMT and Alto K10 AMT have a waiting period of around a month. When launched, the Wagon R Stingray AMT is expected to be priced around Rs. 30,000 more than the manual version.
