Pros : Smart looks, spacious Interior, excellent gear shift.

Cons : Average fuel economy, Average Power

The new Maruti Wagon R features a great and spacious interior, excellent gear shift whereas it is not much fuel efficient car and has less power and average pick up. The new Wagon R priced at Rs 4.6 lakh. 

Look and Style: As per looks are concerned, Maruti Wagon R has a great design much better than other cars like Ford Figo, Chevrolet Beat. This new car is bigger, bolder and certainly, have smarter looks.

Comfort: The new Wagon R is very spacious from inside. It posses enough leg space, overall the interior is great. AC of the car is not pretty much good though it's somewhat ok. 

Pickup: Pick up is not so good. The car does cruise comfortably at a 100 kmph. 

Mileage: Fuel economy is average, it gives 16-17 kmpl without AC & around 15kmpl with AC on the highways. 

Best Features: Among the best features of Maruti Wagon R the most I like is its gear shifting. It has great gear shift. 

Needs to improve: In order to make it the best hatchback car Maruti has to make some improvement in the areas like its AC is not so powerful, though it's not so bad but not up to the expectation. Apart from this Maruti also have to make a concern on its mileage as it is not pretty much fine. If the Maruti increases its power then it can be termed as a perfect car. 

Overall Experience: I am very much satisfied and feel proud of having this car and I believe that if one is not looking for the power as it's not so good then this car is a value for money car.

    Average Fuel Economy! How much do u think is good fuel economy for u. When it gives more than 19kmpl in highway without and 16-17 kmpl with AC on, I think the fuel economy in its section is great. I really don't understand y u say poor economy. May I know how much mileage it gives for u with and without AC on to make urself clear?

    I own one and dear, I'm sorry to say that i have to go against what you have listed here. AM getting an average of 20.5 kmpl (half a/c on, the A/C is too cool to handle (Check whether you are putting your a/c as external air suction or internal rotate. - The A/C in WR is one of the best in class) The Automatic ovrm's are a pleasure to use(Especially when reversing/parking. Agree with the under power stuff u said. But have u tried bringing on above 2000 RPM? actually wagon R have issues only till 2000 RPM, above that it goes of like a rocket and dear, I have tried it above 130 and we could still control this little thing without much issues. Ps. The best thing about wagon R is the riding position. You can ride like a king! Once You start riding this, it's difficult for you to get in to the driving seat of any other car(I had issues with getting in to a verna after started to ride WR. Ps. for better fuel efficiency, don't hit pedal hard, riding must not be too slow, nor too fast. - if u want more power, try Ritz! -

    I am not getting a good millage. It is average 13 to 14kmpl in petrol. When I can get the actual millage. I mean to say after how many kilometers of running the vehicle? It is self driven car and ran near to 1500KM only and one 1st service done. Request comments.

    AC with air quality height adjustment and mileage should be improved immediately to survive in the market otherwise MARUTI WR become a story in coming years...
