Pros : Interiors,Head and leg room,Fuel efficiency

Cons : Looks, Cramped for five, very sluggish at lower rpm


Look and Style : Its, not the best-looking car to be honest. It's very boxy as if it's entirely designed using just a scale and a pencil. Previous Waggon Rs were boxy but it looked a bit swollen. The new one is like all the things stuffed  and made it looked swollen has been thrown out. It's surprising on the inside , unlike any other small Maruti, it kinda looks and feels a bit better. The vxi model interior look good. At around 4.5 lakhs you don't get alloy wheels, USB connectivity,abs, airbags. 

Comfort: Maruti has never been in the race to produce a very comfy car. Neither is the Wagon R. It's not unnerving  and at the same time it isn't soothing,but yes, for city riding its fine. You get lots of head room, too much of it to be truthful, that kinda spoils the little fun while driving. The boot space is pitiful. it's just a small space behind the back seat. The steering feels kinda heavy at times. Not what the city car buyers would like. 

Pickup: The 1.0 litre 3 cylinder isn't much to expect, especially with its tall stance. It just doesn't feel agile or nippy for a small car. Every time you want to overtake someone , you have to downshift. Sometimes in second gear, the car feels motionless for a small moment even when your foot is planted to the throttle. 

Mileage: It should give a mileage of around 14-17 with the driving conditions. That's not surprising from Maruti. 

Best Features: It looks a bit better than the old gen models. The interiors look good. The gear box is a relief from the old gen one. Fuel Efficiency is good as well. 

Needs to improve: The tall boy needs to be a little less tall . Boot space should be increased. Better throttle response at lower rpm would be more likely.

 Overall Experience: Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is a decent car that could have been better is it was given a bit more attention. The five-seater doesn't really seat five healthy people. With more attention to how the car really drives, Maruti could get a better sales figure than it already is for the Wagon R
