All variants of the two cars will now come with dual airbags and ABS options

Maruti Suzuki has announced that its innovative new Auto Gear Shift feature will be offered as an option in its WagonR and Stingray models.

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

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

Also known as Automated Manual Transmission, AGS offers the driver the option of choosing between automatic and manual gear shifting.

The AGS system slashes shifting times when compared with conventional automatic transmissions. It also has a creep function that prevents the car from stalling in bumper to bumper traffic.

Maruti claims that the new transmission helps the WagonR and Stingray deliver a fuel efficiency of 20.51 kmpl, which is the same as the figure returned by the variants with manual transmission.
