Overview

 Maruti came up with a heavily updated and refreshed Wagon R in April 2010.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. Itisn’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. These numbers put it slightly ahead of most of the other cars in the segment. Up front, the Wagon R has gained with the new bigger and sleeker headlamps. The grille and bumper also got worked on and the overall effect is more pleasing to the eyes. The side profile remains more or less the same.Inside, 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 the car is very easily and the first thing that greets you is the chrome inserted steering wheel and the brilliant three pod speedometer console behind it. The top end VXi version gets keyless entry, electronically adjustable outside RVMs, parcel tray, audio system with 4 speakers, all four power windows etc. 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 ARAI ratings stand at 18.9kmpl which translates into 13-14 in city traffic. Out on the highways when driving with a full load, you do feel the small nature of the engine at speeds above say 100km/h. 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. 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. The Wagon R is priced between Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 4.3 lakh for the petrol versions while the CNG model is priced at Rs 4.3 lakh. Mind you, discounts and schemes are year round which makes the Wagon R brilliant value for money!  Its a practical hatch and for a detailed analysis of the it read below.

Interior

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 the car is very easily and the first thing that greets you is the chrome inserted steering wheel and the brilliant three pod speedometer console behind it. The higher versions also get an integrated audio system that gels along very well and adds to the overall appeal of the design – especially of the central console. The silver finish above the glovebox looks nice as well.
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 (
which is beneficial for the elderly), front passenger under-seat tray and push type can holders for the front passengers located just below the vents. The top end VXi version gets keyless entry, electronically adjustable outside RVMs, parcel tray, audio system with 4 speakers, all four power windows etc.
