Scheduled to be launched in India in the coming months, WagonR AMT has made its way to the Indonesian market at a starting price of 113 million Indonesian Rupiah (or Rs 5.5 lakhs). The base WagonR GS with 5 speed manual transmission starts at 105 million IDR (or Rs 5.11 lakhs). Indonesia also offers an ultra low cost WagonR with bare minimum features. This one is priced at 90 million IDR (or Rs 4.38 lakhs).
A total of three variants are on offer with new WagonR AMT in Indonesia. These are GL, GS and GX. The top-end GX variant will be priced at 121.5 million IDR (or Rs 5.92 lakhs). It comes with features like stylish multi spoke alloys, and projector headlamps.
Power to the new WagonR AMT will come from Suzuki’s trusted 1.0l K-Series petrol engine, which also powers the Celerio and Alto K10. It delivers 68 PS power and 90 Nm torque. Though Indonesian WagonR is manufactured at Suzuki Indonesia plant, there is no difference between the Indian WagonR and Indonesian WagonR.
Even in India, Maruti has revealed plans to launch WagonR AMT, mostly by the end of this year. The reason launch of WagonR AMT in India has been delayed is due to the shortage of AMT kits. Magnetti Marelli, the producer of these AMT kits, is well on its way to start production of AMT kits at their new plant in Manesar. Once this plant is operational, India will not only see the launch of WagonR AMT, but many others as well. These includes entry level cars from the likes of Renault, Nissan, Hyundai, Mahindra, etc.
