Cars Q&A

Hi, I am using Maruti WagonR Lxi from last 7 months. Really fed up with riding & build quality of this car. Every 20 seconds I have to change up gears. Really very poor & bumby suspension. I have finally thought to change this car to Hyundai I10 Era (1.1). I want to know whether my decision is right or not. I am getting best resale of Wagon R. I am a true heart car rider. I Like gr8 pickup and driving pleasure in a car. I really love looks of I10. I thought of going for Kappa but that one is out of my budget. Please suggest me whether to go for I10 Era (1.1 Engine). What mileage can I expect in city with A.C.

Answer by K K 07 July 2009

Go for swift or fiat punto

Answer by Kamlesh 07 July 2009

If you want a drivers car...go for the Swift. The 1.1 i10 is a wee bit underpowered esp on highways...(*a friend who owns this and me in a Swift raced each other...the swift won by a BIG margin...
Otherwise the i10 1.1 is a good car...

Dear, if you go through the look, then stay away from bying a car. My experience of driving WagonR is very good when compared to Santro. I did not drive i10, which is lookwise good.
Swift is superb in terms of look and performance and market. It has largest market in this category (Swift / i10 / i20 / A-Star / Ritz / Fabina )

Answer by Pankaj 07 July 2009

the i10 is any day bettr than the Wagon- R. Its technology is also advanced. It gives 12km in city running with the AC on.Good luck in ur decision....hope vu've not been confused by all the various feedbacks.

Never buy a car from korean or american technology,always use japan technology vehicles....LIKE..TOYOTA, SUZUKI, HONDA,NISSAN,MAZDA,MITSUBISHI, YOU CAN DEPEND ON HONDA JAZZ OR MARUTI SWIFT

You really want your Wagon R or Swift or Getz or Zing or Spark to out perform the rest ??? Visit and read up Info and Look Up " Silent Power " ~ A google search for Somender Singh will leave you zapped with what people across continents have to say ! Korean or American or Japanies or Germans none have his technology ?

i have driven his modified cars they are filled with torque from idle to infinity ! Need to get an appointment and take your car to Mysore ! For a One time change !

2. swift

Answer by GauraV 07 July 2009

I am using i10 for last one yr.Average is 11-12km in B'lore.A/c not always on.Less pickup than Santro but found the seating and the oveball ride better even than even W/R. Otherwise I am surprised on yr coments on W/R. Hundai cars are more expensive to repair but the overall Product quality and fit & finish are excellent

Answer by Daulat Singh Lodha 07 July 2009

Go for a FIAT Car, FIAT LINEA, GRANDE PUNTO or the PALIO depending upon the budget. These are the best cars in their respective classes and will give every thing a small, light weight and tinny Suzuki can give. The Hyundai's are really no better. Now if you want to go by popularity alone, certainly the road will not lead to a FIAT Showrrom. The choice is your, I have have been using FIAT's for 7/8years are think they are the best cars, and certainly the best for Indian Market.

This refers to Sajus's response. In today's competitive world Brand likeness/ hatred is stupid way to decide for a car and you are drawing lines with respect to countries.
Behave matured.
the biggest car makers are not from Japan though Japanese technology is competitive too.

dear vijay ,
i do not think you had bitter experiance with wagon R where as WAGON R is widly accepeted car in india. as you told ypur budgt does not allow for kappa magna you go for ERA its almost same in delhi its give 14- 15km in city
go for it.

Answer by Jogendra 07 July 2009

dude...i owned wagon r previously and changed it recently.. i had all the worst experience which you have now especially the suspension and the changing gear etc...i bought swift vdi...and I am now completely satisfied...basically you will have to look for a bigger tyre when you want to change a car for suspension problem..and again you are changing your car once in a while and might wanna go for a bigger car than what you have now, dont go for the same kind of a car like i10...
