When we talk about Wagon R, mind-blogging numbers is what we think about. The moment you step on the road, you are bound to spot a Wagon R. Wagon R’s are everywhere – in every nook and corner of the country, and much of this can be accredited to the extravagant sales of this model. Since its launch in the year 1999, the manufacturer has dispatched around 8 lakh models. The automobile manufacturer claims to have satisfied customers who are totally in love with the model. The success of Wagon R is not just like that; the company has strived hard to keep the model relevant and up-to-date with the time. The model launched in 1999 received its first update in 2003 followed by another one in 2006. Due to its timely update, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is now bolder and spacious when you compare it with the previous models.
Having seen the overview, let us dive deeper into this comprehensive Maruti Suzuki Wagon R review:
On the outside, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is quite bold and is much dynamic than its predecessor. The model with bonnet and grille looks aggressive. Wagon R has a simple styling with the most attractive part being the front radiator grille which is not overly dominated by chrome garnish. Adding to the appeal is the black finished fog lamp housings. As for the side profile, the boxy window in the model is designed in line with the squarish silhouette. Black moulding placed on the side adds to the sporty flair.
On the inside, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is quite spacious with a new large dashboard which looks quite decent. Regarding the interior, Wagon R is not the best car if you compare it with other models in its price range, but the company is taking efforts in bringing it on par by introducing handy features such as cupholders and rear parcel tray. Other standard features include 60:40 split rear seat, storage space below the passenger seat similar to that of Ford Fusion and a console ahead of gear lever which helps to prevent any damage to your gadget. The new model lacks the sheet utility which was an integral part of the earlier models and large storage space below the glove box and steering wheel.
Under the hood, Maruti Suzuki Wagon R houses a BS-IV spec three-cylinder 998cc engine which churns out 67bhp @ 6200rpm and generates 90Nm of torque @ 3500rpm. A spectacular part about the engine is that it is not just BS-IV compliant but Ethanol compliant as well thereby making the car environmentally friendly. It reaches 100kph with ease. However, the engine makes much noise when pushed beyond the limit.
