Pros : Space, low maintenance, High Milage

Cons : poor suspension

Look and Style: 2010 Wagon R is a brand new car with everything new in it, along with a new K-10 engine. It has the tomboy look with a bigger bonnet (hood) and the overall length is a little more , compare to its predecessors. To some people, it looks ugly, ugly as a van but this model is pretty hit in Asia and in Europe. Suzuki Has launched this vehicle in many countries and Opel did the same.

Comfort: It's ok for drivers comfort. The passenger on front seat feels comfortable. The back seat has plenty of space for two people. It's a narrow vehicle. So , three on the back seat is a little tough. But the most important thing, this vehicle is tall and it's convenient for tall people to get in or to get off. Especially, old people/patient can easily get in or get off. Back seat passengers feel it a little bumpy if the road is not good, though.  

Pickup: With a three cylinder, 998 cc engine this car's pick up is incredible. 0-100 kmph reaches within 16 sec (seriously, not joking). Very stable at a speed of 120 km/h.  

Mileage: With AC in City it gives consistent 14kmpl. On the highway, with AC it gives 16 kmpl on average. If AC is off it gives around 15+ kmpl in city and around 17 kmpl on the highway. 

Best Features: Almost zero maintenance cost. Plenty of space. You can easily fold the back seat and turn your vehicle to a delivery van. 

Needs to improve: Suspension. Maruti can bring the good ole 1.1L engine back. Everything else is just perfect!  

Overall Experience: Good enough for your hard earned money.

    Is a newer version of wagon -R being launched

    Yes, in 2013, they made a little modification to 2010 model and launched it. Both the car is same in engine and with major body style. Only the front grill design has been changed. This month, in August, 2013 maruti brought another new avatar of Wagon-R and i.e. Stingray. Same engine, same interiors(almost) with a revamped look from the outside. I believe this car will be a big hit in Indian market like it's predecessors.

    good one undoubtedly on roads without any patches. proportionate to the height of the vehicle wheels size needs to be increased so that it can be more stable . otherwise it fluctuates causing the fear of falling down . over all it is a wonderful vehicle i have had recently .

    The VXi variant comes with 15'' wheel and the LXi comes with 14'' wheel. I personally drive LXi version. The CG is maintained so well. The vehicle is even steady at a speed of 100KM/h while taking a steep curve on a highway. If Maruti fits a 16'' wheel (SX4) it will increase the manufacturing cost and the price of Wagon R as well.
