Maruti WagonR Diesel Engine & Performance

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

Maruti WagonR Diesel 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 Diesel 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 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.

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.

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.

Recently I purchased this car. It is very comfortable to drive within city as well as on the highway. Interior space is
sufficient. Boot space is also more than enough. I think it is a real gentleman car.
