Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has crossed the milestone of 15 lakh cumulative sales. The company sold around 156,300 units of Wagon R in 2013-14. In the current year, Wagon R sales have already exceeded 93,000 units.
Speaking about the achievement of this milestone, Manohar Bhat, Vice President (Marketing) of Maruti Suzuki said, “Launched in 2000, Wagon R has been amongst India’s top 5 best-selling brands. With its space, features and comfort, Wagon R has been the choice of the ‘Smart customer’ and consistently remained among India’s most loved car brands.”
Strengthened by regular up-gradations to meet customer expectations and successful marketing initiatives focusing on the core proposition of ‘Smart’ while staying true to its leadership stance, Wagon R continues to win the hearts of Indian car buyers.
Adding to its popularity, Maruti Suzuki expanded the Wagon R family by bringing the CNG trim in 2010-11.

To keep excitement going, in 2013-14 Maruti Suzuki introduced Wagon R Stingray to the Wagon R portfolio.
