Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Overview

Leaving on a high note, Maruti Suzuki India launched the updated version of WagonR, 'The blue eyed boy,' with improved exterior, interior and other features. The original version of WagonR is one of the top-selling models of the family, and a better WagonR is definitely an idea in favour of its manufacturer. With an aim to continue the success momentum, the company has brought in the new Maruti WagonR that comes equipped with redefined sporty fog lamps, narrower front grille, coupled with large bumpers and wide airdam, a single horizontal trip (highlighted with chrome detailing in the LXi and VXi trims), large blue tinted headlights, and other cosmetic modifications. The slanted roof-with-roof rails enhance its side profile. However, the tyres are very frail and small. Its taller and finely-polished body design makes it look more mature, but the boxy look still disappoints.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Overview
On the inside, the new WagonR is more spacious, sleek and comfortable. Now, it is available in a new dual tone color scheme, i.e., black and beige. Besides having the standard comfort features, its top-end variant is loaded with various advanced ones, like sound audio system with integrated AUX-in and US ports, well-cushioned and mounted seats with customization positing, electric ORVM, adjustable tilted electronic power steering, climate control unit, and more. Powered with a 1.0-litre Kb 10, 3 cylinder petrol engine, the new WagonR delivers an impressive fuel efficiency. This lightweight engine churns out a peak power of 67.1 bhp at 6200 rpm and the maximum torque of 90 Nm at 3200 rpm. It offers a displacement of 998 cc. Coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission and DOHC with offset crankshaft, it performs well. The VXi variant of the new WagonR is available with CNG fuel engine option that is boosted with the Intelligent Gas Port Injection (i-GPI) i-fuel technology. This engine makes a maximum power of 58.2 bhp at 6200 rpm and torque of 77 Nm at 3500 rpm. This blue-eyed boy is a practical value for money with price tag between 3.80 lac- 4.60 lac (ex-showroom price, Delhi). The spacious interior, refined service, low running cost and good resale value make it a perfect car for newbie drivers and buyers.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Exterior

The cosmetic makeover of the new Maruti WagonR makes it look better than before, but its boxy design doesn't appeal. It is available in three outgoing trim levels, including the LX and LXi. The car looks better with new large headlamps, blue tinted parking lamps, front grille with chrome detailing, sporty fog lamps and large bumper with wide airdam. The new narrow grille is claimed to have reduced the NVH levels and friction of car. However, the NVH levels are relatively high. The front fascia now looks more mature, but fails to mark an impression.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Exterior
The slating roof-with-roofrails resemble the old Wagon hatchback. However, its top-end variant is available with body-colored roof rails. The well-designed wheel arches enhance its side profile, but tyres feel very fragile and small. “WagonR” is embossed on the chrome strip of its rear side. This time, the company has kept the rear windscreen wider with larger rear lights. The new WagonR is spoonful of chrome to match the Indian taste. However, the positioning of lock is very odd. In terms of design and styling, the new WagonR is definitely a step ahead. However, its narrow and tall body-built gives it a boxy feel.Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Exterior
The top-end variant of new WagonR (VXi) has a set of 14-inch wheels, whereas the rest two, LXi and LX, are assembled with 13-inch wheels. Wheel arches are good looking. The puncture-resistant tubeless tyres are fitted over the rims that feel quite frail but efficient enough to control the car. The top-of-the-line version of new WagonR comes with a tyre size of 155/65R14, whereas the 145/80R13 size of tyres has been used for LX and LXi variants.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Interior

The interior feels more comfortable, spacious and elegant when compared to its strong competitor Chevrolet beat; however the Hyundai i10 is still better. The overall dimensions of the car have been increased with a purpose to make it more spacious. Now, it measures around 3595 mm in length, 1495 mm in width and 1700 mm in height. With increased legroom and headroom, this boy can easily accommodate four passengers. Due to the narrower design, the shoulder space is less that it gets congested for three passengers on the rear seat. However, there is good legroom and flat floor to make passengers more comfortable in the cabin. The increased legroom takes on boot space, which is quite limited (180 litres) in this version.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Interior
With a combination of rich blue and black upholstery, the seats look stylish. With mediocre thigh and lumber support, it offers moderately comfortable seating position for both rear and front passengers. The wider rear windscreen rewards fine visibility. The grey-coloured dashboard doesn’t add to its elegance, but it's surely better than the regular Maruti cars. The dashboard offers can holders, glove compartment and enough storage space. There is a digital fuel gauge, two trip meters and a tachometer. The stereo system is available with its top-end variant with good-quality sound; and features like FM, CD player, and USB and Aux ports. With its other variants, you have an option of audio installation. The climate control unit is an additional advantage with its top-end variant. The plastic quality is nothing to explain about.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Engine & Transmission

Under the hood, the new WagonR equips a lightweight all-aluminium, K10B series petrol engine that develops a peak power of 67.1 bhp at 6200 rpm and a torque of 90 Nm at 3200 rpm. It offers a displacement of 998 cc. Maruti Suzuki is known for manufacturing fuel-efficient engines and this blue-eyed tall boy has sustained the company’s values by offering a mileage of 14.2 kmpl on city roads and 18.9 kmpl on highways. This engine is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission and DOHC with offset crankshaft, and performs better than its elder sibling. In CNG mode, the new WagonR (VXi) churns out a maximum power of 58.2 bhp at 6200 rpm and torque of 77 Nm at 3500 rpm. On the fuel efficiency front, the CNG-powered VXi variant is pretty impressive as it comes packed with the Intelligent Gas Port Injection (i-GPLI) bi-fuel technology. It reduces the total running cost of the car and doesn't make extra holes in your pocket. The Dual ECU system maintains a balance between the engine’s fuel requirement and supply, which has positive impact on its overall performance. The CNG version offers an impressive mileage of 15.5 km/kg on city roads and 20.2 kg/km on highways. The updated WagonR can attain 100 kph from standing still just in 15.9 seconds and touch 130 kmph quite easily. Despite having short 1st and 2nd gear ratio, they can be shifted quite frequently in city. The NVH levels are higher as compared to its competitors, like Chevrolet beat, Santo, etc. The throttle response isn’t impressive and adversely affects its city drivability. The gearshift is very precise.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Mileage

The all-new Maruti WagonR is 10 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor. The new WagonR's petrol model returns a decent mileage of 14.2 kmpl on city roads and 18.9 kmpl on highway. Its VXi CNG variant proves to be even more fuel efficient by delivering a whooping 15.5 km/kg on city roads and 20.2 kg/km on highways. The petrol and CNG variants come with fuel tank capacity of 35-litres and 60 litres respectively. The top-end CNG variant (VXi) of the new WagonR is powered with the i-GPI technology with separate injectors for all the three cylinders. The CNG fuel quantity varies with driving condition, which is controlled by the ECU system, making it more fuel efficient.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Braking and Safety

Brakes are efficient and prove to be great performers during panic braking situations or unexpected road surprises. The front and rear brakes of new WagonR are ventilated disc brakes and drum brakes with 8-inche booster assisted brakes respectively. The VXI variant, which comes with optional ABS, is certainly a better vehicle in terms of safety, as it prevents the wheels from locking up during panicbraking situations.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Braking and Safety
The new WagonR comes with a good number of active and passive safety features, especially in its top-end variant. There is a dual SRS airbag that provides great protection against collision by offering cushioning. ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), halogen headlamps, front and rear fog lamps, front and rear ELR seat belts, child proof rear door locks, rear wipers, high-mounted stop lamp, warning lamps, de-fogger, and washer are other features on offer.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Performance and Handling

The handling and ride quality of the car is little better compared to its elder sibling, but not up to the mark. The front McPherson strut suspension with coil spring and the rear suspension with isolated trailing link with coil spring are good enough for city driving. The steering feels smooth in urban traffic as well. Improved visibility contributes to its drivability. However, the gearshifts and clutch feel hard. The frail tyres disappoint and provide mediocre stability. There's not much to talk about its handling. It's a decent performer on city roads, but we would suggest people not to buy it for highway cruising.

What do we think about Maruti Suzuki Wagon R?

Despite not so impressive design and interior feel, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR is a good value for money car. The city mileage of around 15 kmpl, almost no-maintenance and good ride quality make it a perfect daily commuter. NVH level is one department on which Maruti seriously needs to work on all its budget cars, including the WagonR. We expected the insulation to be better in case of new WagonR, but the company paid almost no attention. Poor plastic quality used for the interiors is another area that might disappoint you, but that can still be compromised with, considering the price tag it comes at. In a nut shell, if you are looking for a city car that is fuel efficient, spacious and comes at a handy price, the WagonR can be just perfect for you.

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Competitors

Although there are several rivals of Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, but coming in the same price range, the Hyundai i10 is the closest rival of the WagonR. The i10 is a good-looking hatchback with compact and stylish dimensions, whereas the boxy design of the new Maruti WagonR makes it no head turner. When it comes to even interiors, the Hyundai i10 is definitely a winner with a good number of comfort and safety features, and rich upholstery. Despite having a compact design, this hatchback can accommodate four passengers comfortably. The new WagonR surprises with refreshing alterations made to its interior, which make it far better than its predecessor. It is spacious enough for five passengers with good legroom and headroom. The boot space is an obvious advantage. Accessorized with various features and well-cushioned seats, it’s decent in terms of comfort. The plastic quality isn’t impressive, but this is something that we cannot expect from a vehicle at this price.
The new Hyundai i10 is available in two engine options- 1.1-litre iRDE and 1.2-litre Kappa. The 1.1-litre petrol engine delivers a maximum power output of 68 bhp at 5500 rpm and 99 Nm of torque at 4500 rpm. On the other hand, the 1.2-litre engine is efficient to deliver a maximum power of 79 bhp at 6000 rpm and 111 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm. The fuel efficiency of the iRDE and the 1.2-litre power trains are 19.81 kmpl and 20.36 kmpl, respectively. The NVH levels of both the engines are low and handling is good. The new WagonR is power packed with a 1.0-litre K-series engine that offers decent power and performance with a fuel efficiency of 18.9 kmpl. When compared to Hyundai’s engine, the new WagonR’s 1.0-litre K-series engine feels rev-happy and peppier on Indian roads. However, in terms of power and overall performance, the Hyundai i10 is a better performer. With average scoring, there is nothing exceptional about the ride quality and handling of both the hatchbacks.
