Wagon R: Title sums up my experience, This was the one of the most hated model for me as well as my wife she use to call it Kadyapeti(match box) We were hell bent on purchasing Celerio AMT but then when we actually test drive both I personally Learnt why Wagon R Blue Eyed box is so popular and its sales go on increasing day by day. Now this is the most loved car by my family, and to tell you the AMT version has helped me to use the car frequently. My first car was Second Hand Indica petrol version which i drove around 1000 kms in 4 years and this new car already 7000 in less than a year. Hats off to Maruti and its BLue eyed boy. We Looooooooooooooooved it so much.... This is a good car for a middle class family with good mileage and decent looks. As far as my last 4000Km with my tall boy is concerned it's been awesome to have a vehicle like this. Body is little weak and could barely sustain any small accidents. Suspension is little bumpy on some rough roads. I have been getting an average mileage of 15KMPL. The interior space and the seat height are two of the best things in this car. You get a lot of boot space(huge) once you fold the rear seats(I had helped two of my friends to shift their houses from one place to another) Overall a great car for family mileage I am getting 15 km which I think is a good one (I learned driving with this car & still learning a lot) service is best as Maruti service center is best one highest selling car compared to its competitors. Note that I drive without hard acceleration and hard braking and top upto 110KmPH speed. I got upto 22km/Litre on a drive of 1150Kms( 650Kms tolled Bengaluru Haveri highway on NH and 400kms on state highways through sirsi and yellapur+ 50Km in city+30Kms with 2people+200Kg luggage)=1150 Kms. I had filled totally 69litres of petrol in 3 fillings and it had ticked from 6th point to 5th when I reached back to my home @ bengaluru.around 52.5 liters moved it for 1150 Kms long. On an average of 21.9KmPL Overall a great car for family mileage I am getting 15 km which I think is a good one (I learned driving with this car & still learning a lot) service is best as Maruti service center is best one highest selling car compared to its competitors. This is the basic variant of Wagon R and comes with CNG kit as a standard fitment. The CNG tank capacity of 60Liters and fuel tank capacity and 35 liters petrol filling capacity is really good. Just fill up both CNG and petrol tanks and for a long drive without having to bother about fuel pump availability. However I recommend to se CNG while using in city conditions and petrol mode for highway driving where you can really enjoy good speed as compared to CNG mode driving. It's an ideal selection as a stylish hatchback with high utility and reliability. Car looks boxy and 3 in rear seat don't fit fit very comfortably. In CNG variant no boot space. For the price more features could be given so I think Maruti is over pricing their car due to their service monopoly. From safety point of view also it can be improved by increasing curve weight and providing airbags and ABS in CNG variant. If you need a family car for 4 people then go for it without any doubt for city drive and occasionally highway drive. I suggest don't go for kenwood music system as it does not match with a dashboard.
