Maruti Stingray User Reviews


My First Car

My first lovable car is Maruti Stingray and it looks little boxy but front lamps are really attractive. The interiors are very comfortable than other cars of same range. Actually I have driven beat, alto k10, 800 and i10 but found Stingray is very very better than others. The engine performance is also satisfactory with an average of 16 in city roads and 19 on highway roads. But driving at a high speed is not so safe which needs to be improved. For me, it is really a worthy value for money and I recommend every body to go for Maruti Stingray car.


Combination of Safari and Range Rover

My vehicle is Maruti Stingray and there is no doubt for awesome exterior appearance. It would be really suitable for those who are crazy for sportiveness and styling. The Wagon R has been modified with a little bit of styling and some other features. The engine of the car performs good and it has easily operated gear shifts. Even though it is a sporty car, the cost is little pricey for middle class but it would be worthful for its new styling and latest technology.


Good Choice

Maruti Stingray is completely good with lot of exciting and thrilling features. The fit and finish of the car is awesome with powerful tail lamps and front headlights. Interior cabin space is good in which we could open the doors to 90 degree which is quite outstanding. Engine performance and fuel efficiency is also not so bad as well as smooth gear box. The ride quality and handling of the car is very fine both in cities and highways. It has nothing to improve and overall it is fine to use.
