Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Maruti Alto 800

    • Passenger airbag is now optional on all variants: While the Alto gets a driver airbag as standard, it can now be had with an optional front co-passenger airbag across all variants as well. Two airbags at the front reduces the chances of injury to both front occupants. CarDekho recommends all buyers to opt for variants with dual front airbags.
    • Maruti’s wide sales and service network: Maruti Suzuki's extensive sales and service network makes servicing and owning the car a hassle-free experience.

    Maruti Wagon R

    • Easy ingress and egress: Entering into and exiting from the WagonR is easy as you don’t have to bend much.
    • Spacious cabin: The increase in exterior dimensions and wheelbase has resulted in more space inside the cabin.
    • Cavernous boot: 341-litre boot space is maximum in its segment. In fact, it’s comparable or even bigger than cars from a segment above. Can fit 3-4 medium size bags easily. The rear seat is also 60:40 split, adding more versatility.
    • AMT with both engines: The option of AMT ups the convenience quotient in an already easy to drive car. Available in V and Z variants, and with both the engines.
    • Safer: ABS standard, dual front airbags available as option on all variants. The new platform is also stronger than the one before.

    Maruti Alto 800

    • No automatic transmission: The Alto’s 0.8-litre engine can only be had with a 5-speed manual transmission. AMT adds to the driving convenience, hence Maruti Suzuki should have offered it on the updated Alto.
    • Stripped out base variant: The Alto’s base variant misses out on essential features like power steering, front power windows and air conditioner.

    Maruti Wagon R

    • Plastic quality: Quality of materials in the cabin could've been better. Consistency in quality is also a concern.
    • Spongy brakes: There could have been better pedal response.
    • Missing features: Adjustable rear headrests, height adjustable driver’s seat, rear parking camera and alloy wheels should have been on offer, at least on the top variant.
    • Weak cabin insulation: NVH levels aren't the best - a lot of engine noise creeps into the cabin.
