Pros : baker's chocalate colour looks attractive, feel of big car,space,milage,handling in city

Cons : feels less powerful when ac is on or with 5 people, obstruction 2 better view faulty rightt side,cd

Look and Style : Before buying this car, was considering the Beat, it has great looks anytime than Wagon R, but I  am 6 feet 2 inches so feel cramped in the Beat. Wagon R has not best looks in the class but I like it very much in baker's chocolate colour, it is attractive. Better view from the driver's seat. 

Comfort - Very comfortable for a guy like me who is  above 6 feet, more spacious than any other car in its class. 3 normal (not fatso!) people in the rear seat are comfortable. VXi version gives more comfort with tilt steering option. 

Pickup - As am young would like to have more pickup than it has. but it's ok. But with 5 people sitting driver would get annoyed with the pickup, AC also largely affects pick up. 

Mileage - On the highway with 100% AC on had given me around 17.5 Kmpl, in the city gives around 16 kmpl which is quite good, I think. 

Best Features - Mileage, baker's chocolate colour, space, city driving. 

Needs to improve - Pickup, AC not so good, CD player (maybe!), faulty right side view from the driver seat. 

Overall Experience - A good family car for city driving, very economical, servicing after month cost me just Rs 100, I had got it on 7th Feb 2011, had to fight wit dealer (not literally) for discount and it of Rs 14,000 cash on VXI. Do call customer care of Maruti for available discount dealer may misguide like he does wit me. But young people, who want pick up and more style should always go for Chevy beat.
