Front View of Maruti WagonR

Today, the Wagon R continues to sell in healthy numbers and is always among the top 4-5 selling cars in the Indian market in terms of monthly sales figures. It isn’t a very modern or a beautiful looking hatchback – what it easily retains is its tall boy look. The new version has grown in every department and is now an overall bigger vehicle too. Dimension wise, the Wagon R 3595mm long, stands 1700mm tall and is 1495mm wide. The new Wagon R has some changes. The new Wagon R gets exterior and interior updates which are designed to make it look fresher. We think the front end now looks much better. The new grille has become more narrow and the front bumper now has a bigger air dam plus there are new look fog lamps as well. However it is all not just cosmetic as the front upper grille has also been designed to reduce air borne noise. The Lxi and Vxi get a chrome front grille.The Wagon R was always known and appreciated for its practical and roomy interiors. Ofcourse there is acres of head room around and the tall body with big windows adds to the overall airy feeling inside. The upgraded version got a completely revamped cabin which now makes this car look upmarket and classy for this price segment. Getting into a commanding driving position is pretty easy. At the back, with short to medium size front passengers, knee room is pretty impressive.. On the inside the changes are more subtle with the interiors getting a beige/black combo look which again lifts the cabin ambience to some extent. The top of the line Vxi gets beige seats while the Lx and Lxi gets dual coloured ones. The music system has also been upgraded and you now get USB, though you get this in higher variants only. Its also more practical now with a Push type I/P upper storage box.The new Wagon R is now powered by the 1.0litre KB series engine that puts out 68PS of power 90Nm of torque. With a kerb weight that ranges between 860 and 885, the relatively light weight tall-boy car makes the most use of this engine and doesn’t really a chance for any complain. The engine does have its typical three-cylinder sound (or noise if you want to call it) but in daily usage, it turns out be a fairly capable with a very efficient nature.The car maker claims 20.51 kmpl which is just brilliant.Out on the highway as well, the Wagon R has a stable feel. Triple digit speeds are easy and you don’t have a reason to complain even on hilly roads or corners at normal speeds. The steering is of the electric variety which means it is super light at low speeds. Now this is a huge boon for city usage and this combined with an excellent driver’s view means this is one of the best cars in the segment for city usage. Maruti also offers optional ABS. In typical driving conditions, ie, city roads that aren’t always smooth, the Wagon R does a remarkable job. The suspension soaks up most bumps without making the ride uncomfortable. It is only the bigger obstacles which tend to unsettle the car.The CNG variant is now priced at Rs 4.42 lakh while the top-end Vxi variant will set you back by 4.13 lakh. The new Wagon R in Lxi trim is priced at Rs 3.88 lakh ex-showroom. The cheapest is Rs 3.58 lakh for the base model. For a detailed analysis read below

To summarize, the changes are:
1. Refreshed Exteriors
2. Newly designed front Bumper.
3. New grille design.
4. Sporty fog lamp bezel design.
5. Chrome accentuated elegant front grille (Lxi,Vxi)
6. Front upper grille designed to reduce air borne noise.
7. Dual tone interior color scheme (Beige & black).
8. Complete beige seats : Vxi and Beige and black combination : Lx, Lxi
9. New Eagle wings Audio with integrated USB (Vxi)
10. Push type I/P upper storage box: Ergonomically designed in Instrument panel for easy accessibility.
11. Useful to store cans, ladies accessories and many other utility items.
12. Day/ Night Inside rear view mirror: Helps reduce glare and reflections during night driving.

Here's our video review of the new WagonR

Pros: Looks much better now, Is spacious and practical, Maruti service and dealer network, More efficient now
Cons: Still boxy looking, Not as fun as the A-Star, Interior design is conservative

Maruti WagonR Interiors

The Wagon R was always known and appreciated for its practical and roomy interiors. Ofcourse there is acres of head room around and the tall body with big windows adds to the overall airy feeling inside. The upgraded version got a completely revamped cabin which now makes this car look upmarket and classy for this price segment. Getting into a commanding driving position is pretty easy. At the back, with short to medium size front passengers, knee room is pretty impressive. The floor is almost flat which aids when three people are sitting at the back. Worthy of a mention are the rear doors that open quite wide. On the inside the changes are more subtle with the interiors getting a beige/black combo look which again lifts the cabin ambience to some extent. The top of the line Vxi gets beige seats while the Lx and Lxi gets dual coloured ones. The music system has also been upgraded and you now get USB, though you get this in higher variants only. Its also more practical now with a Push type I/P upper storage box.

What we like
New look interior looks better and has very good headroom
What we don't like
Design is still old

Maruti WagonR Engine & Performance

The new Wagon R is now powered by the 1.0litre KB series engine that puts out 68PS of power 90Nm of torque. With a kerb weight that ranges between 860 and 885, the relatively light weight tall-boy car makes the most use of this engine and doesn’t really a chance for any complain. The engine does have its typical three-cylinder sound (or noise if you want to call it) but in daily usage, it turns out be a fairly capable with a very efficient nature.

What we like
Engine has enough grunt for everyday use
What we don't like
Feels out of breath in highway

Maruti WagonR Handling Braking & Safety

Out on the highway as well, the Wagon R has a stable feel. Triple digit speeds are easy and you don’t have a reason to complain even on hilly roads or corners at normal speeds. The steering is of the electric variety which means it is super light at low speeds. Now this is a huge boon for city usage and this combined with an excellent driver’s view means this is one of the best cars in the segment for city usage. Maruti also offers optional ABS.

What we like
Handling feels better and planted
What we don't like
Still not as sporty as the A-Star

Maruti WagonR Comfort & Suspension

The new WagonR isn’t just new on the outside or the inside – the platform has been changed as well. This upgraded car sits on a much bigger platform which shows its benefits on the move. It also gets a new frame type front suspension for smoother drives. Further, it gets an energy absorbing body structure for safer drives. In typical driving conditions, ie, city roads that aren’t always smooth, the Wagon R does a remarkable job. The suspension soaks up most bumps without making the ride uncomfortable. It is only the bigger obstacles which tend to unsettle the car

What we like
The ride is improved too
What we don't like
At high speeds the ride is a bit jiggly

Best for small family of 5, POOR MILEAGE, LOW PERFORMENCE
By Posted on Oct,10,30 6:21 PM

Pros Great Looks,Comfort,

Cons Average Performance,Average Fuel Efficiency,

I suggest PLEASE read till end IF YOU ARE REALLY GOING TO BUY WAGON R .. I would like to describe by steps 1.Thought of purchasing a car with in budget of 3-4 lac 2.So my first choice was Alto 800, but its too small for my family( we are 5 members ) 3.After a deep thought Changed my mind to buy wagon r ( that time they are running offer of up to 40 k discount, LATER discovered they run the offer 365 days ) 4.Happily bought my NEW FIRST CAR. 5.VERY SMOOTH NICE CAR, (Showroom guys given a small chocolate box may be worth 10 Rs. )+some gift vouchers+5 liter petrol coupon. 6.Filled the tank full petrol. 7.After 260 kms fuel meter started blinking ..( thought that we run more AC and its the month of January and its hot ..) 8.After 30 days got a call for my first service 9.I took my car to their service center and i was VERY VERY HAPPY with their WELCOME but my happiness gone in just 2 minutes when i REJECTED them from doing TEFLON protection and RUST PROTECTION...I became strangers to them. 10.Service done!! Overall about the service..OK!! 11.Till Second service which is after 6 months .. I found that their is very low pickup and very low . 12.When i visited for Second service i told them about the pick up they told me that its a K series engine so ,for better mileage their will be a LESS PICKUP and when i told them about the mileage they replied IN CITY CONDITIONS the average will be 12-14 only BUT I AM GETTING ONLY 10KMPL....No response from SERVICE Persons. 13.Finally second service Done!! 14.Now i am only getting 10 KMPL in city conditions .( on highway i got around 16 KMPL on express highway only ) 15. Now 9500 KMS done with my wagon r with in the spam of 10 months around 75000 petrol it has been consumed with less pickup EVEN MORE LESS PICK UP IF AC IS ON...If you get any ghat road type then you have to use 1 or 2 gear with compulsorily AC off. 16. And waiting for my 3 rd service which will in next 2 months ( Dec 2013 ) LETS HOPE FOR GOOD SERVICE AND MILEAGE ...HOPE 17.Last but not the least I got a feedback mail from MARUTI about their service I replied what i mentioned in this mail...GUESS what .,,that was the last mail from them..ha ha ( as expected ) My suggestions Go for CNG or diesel vehicle. or try any other CAR. Before buying at MARUTI you are GOD and after buying you are DOG. my email id is mdalizinna@gmail.com you can contact me any time for this.

Wagon R - Good and Easy to own car
Posted on Mar,03,23 5:09 PM

Pros features, price and k10 engine

Cons AC on power, top speed steering and vibration

I own a 2012 model wagon R which I bought in October and so far I have run it 7500 kms.. Mostly I used my car in high ways. Inside the city (Chennai) as well as in high speeds I feel like the AC consumes 25% of engine power. The body style is not cooperating high speeds. I mean, less confidence above 100 kmph. However the features of Vxi model is satisfactory.

Cool car for the family
Posted on Feb,02,14 4:40 PM

Pros Looks cool, spacious, fun to drive, convenient for tall people due to head space, easy entry-exit

Cons small tyres, poor mileage

I own a 2012 WagonR (Breeze Blue). I have driven about 5000km with no major issues. It is a very comfortable car for my family with lots of space and leg room. Steering position is great. Seats are ergonomic and shock absorbers are excellent. I recommend this car for tall people and for people who want an easy entry and exit.

Wagon R is a Good City and Family Car
Posted on Sep,09,20 1:21 PM

Pros Fuel Efficiency,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

I have been driving this car for past 7 years and till now no problems. In highway the fuel average goes up to 17.5kmlitre (60kmhr, with AC) and city driving 12kmltr (with AC). The dealer cannot misguide you, any complain to parent, Maruti(website), the dealer will come to you apologizing. This car is small but best for city driving. Keep changing the engine and gear box oil at regular intervals. Buy sealed oil cans from authorized oil dealers. Keep the engine air filter clean. Pre-evaporator (AC) filter to be installed soon after purchasing the vehicle and regularly clean it. Battery water to kept strictly at the required level. Drive carefully and slowly in pot holes and over speed breaker. Do not retrofit stereoAutocop etc from the dealer or any body, as they spoil the electrical wirings, trust me! Loose wiring is the no.1 cause of the fires in the car.
