Detailed Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.0 Review

What's Good?

Power assisted ORVM is nice. Electronic power steering is excellent. Acceleration is good. Mid range performance is excellent. Normally it is a city driving car but it is an excellent and comfort race car for the people of four.

What can improve?

Power is not enough for high range performance. Maruti can upgrade the performance of the vehicle to go a sporty ride in the highway. It missed many youth racers. Engine noise should reduce. Vehicle design to be changed according to aerodynamics.

Overall Comments

Wagon R is the simple hatchback but it has nice outlook. Roof rails are good. Powerful headlights and fog lamps.

There is a knob for changing the view of ORVM, that's very nice. Nippon Audio system is very nice and effective.Wagon R has enough headroom for more than 6 feet tall body and also it has enough legroom as well (quite acceptable). Adjustable Rear seat headrest is very much useful. Windows are large to view outside. Driver seating position is good. It give pleasure to drive inside the city as well as in highways. I've amazed of the air-conditioning,it take very little time to cool the cabin. There is enough space for 4 people (including chauffeur). There is a safety locker under the Co-driver seat it is one of the new innovation. Central locking with remote locking is good. Defogger is well and good.

It is very easy to enter into the small roads without any problem. Easy to park and drive in the heavy traffic. Excellent electronic power steering for city as well as highway ride. There is a sufficient mid-range performance under the hood of the Wagon R. We can cruise 80 to 120 kmph in the highway without any doubts. Cruising on 60 to 80 kmph will give the best mileage i.e.,(20 KMPL). Cruising on 100 kmph is fun to drive. It has the ability to touch more than 145 kmph. My top speed till now is 145 kmph. Suspension is well and good but want some more changes for better comfort. Amazing EPS, it didn't vibrate even when it touches 140 kmph-Thanks to maruti for excellent EPS. EPS obeys the every action of driver results in good handling. Excellent brakes are there in Wagon R. It stops the vehicle smoothly without any noise. It has the capacity to go 15 kmph in the third gear. Excellent acceleration.

Wagon R is one of the racing car. Maruti can concentrate on upgrading it engine performance and also in design, If it changes the design as well as performance it will surely hit all over the world for racing.
