Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is one such car that is here to stay forever! Posting strong sales figures consistently even after almost two decades of existence, this car knows the right to catch the imagination of a typical new car aspirant in India. With 14,176 units sold last month, Maruti is adding a new variant VXi+ to perk up its sales in the new year.
