Editorial Test Drive Review of Maruti WagonR 2010-2012 VXI BSIV
The original tall boy from Maruti has always been a hit with families and the fair sex. Practical, roomy, easy to drive and efficient, the WagonR got its latest upgrade in the form of better looks, all-new interiors, the new KB10 engine and revised pricing. The WagonR has often been criticised for its poor looks though the new one improves on that tremendously. The interiors have been jazzed up a lot and offer lot of spaces for knick-knacks. The design was changed and now looks pleasing to the eyes as well.
A big change to the WagonR came in the form of a new gearbox shift mechanism system which improved the shifts considerably. Maruti has been making good use of the KB10 engine and it powers the WagonR too offering a good drive and impressive fuel economy as well. As much as the WagonR is a very easy car to drive and live in, the suspension system isn’t the best around, offering a bumpy ride to the rear passengers. Plus points include good visibility, a light steering, a company fitted CNG as an option and option to go in for ABS as well as air-bags.
Expert Speak: The tall boy offers good space and the CNG option is the icing on the cake.
Pros: Value, interiors, CNG option
Cons: No diesel, rear ride quality

Pros Fantastic mileage, tall body
Cons 3-wheeler looks
Wagon R is surely one of the best cars in its segment, moreso when you look at the kind of people who go for it. Its definitely not the best looking, nor can it boast of being the most comfortable. But it surely gives an unbelievable mileage (upwards of 17kmpl for me!), has a lot of head room and the tall body structure makes you feel sitting high up on the road. I found the finishing to be dissapointing, when I compare it to the likes of the Santro or the Spark or the Swift. And that shouldnt be the case considering the price of a VXi is only about 50K cheaper than a Swift VXi. All in all...not a bad car...but if you really hv that extra buck, go for the swift anyday

Pros milage yet to be seen.
Cons could have been better. Poor quality of mats.Remote control for music system ic not provided. Silly
Though I was waiting for the Car for three months, Price was Increased around 6000. It is a one week only, since I got the delivery. Suitable for four Adults comfortable. Interior should improve. Hoping for good milage for local use only.
