Hey Prasanta Kumar Dash ..

The new Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is featured with many safety features. Maruti Suzuki Wagon R comes with driver side airbag, ABS, front & rear fog lamps and engine immobilizer. It also indicates the driver seat belt symbol, rear wiper, washer & defogger for enhanced visibility, central locking with alarm. Basically the AC of WagonR or any other car for this matter of fact is directly connected with the engine and turning on AC will require more revving in comparison to AC turned off. The pickup of Wagon R gets affected with AC on because of the fact that AC also consumes power of the engine.

The AC of the car is tuned up with the Engine and thus the pickup is hampered while AC is on for this car. This degrades the overall performance of the car and over a period of time can also affect the engine. I have found that while I was driving on the highways once. However, the car is liked by my family and is treated like a family member, within a month of the purchase of the car.

The car is perfect for the daily use and long drive. However, you are right that the pickup is hampered when the AC is on. I do not have much knowledge about the car mechanism, and thus cannot say more about it or the reason for that, but the effect was felt by me while I was going for a long drive after getting the new car. Measures should be taken in the upcoming models.

The model is perfect for my family. They have liked the car model and it has turned to a family member for me too. I am also not aware about the mechanism and it is my first car, but I found that the pickup was decreasing when I drove the car for the first time on the highways. This affects the performance and also affects the security system of the car. This can also create issues in the long run.
