Detailed Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Review

What's Good?

the car is very good in terms of space. older people will find it easy for ingress and egress. the tall position will give you a commanding view of the road ahead. its easy on the pocket. maintanence costs and the overall ownership costs is bare minimal compared to the other cars in its segments. the SUV like stance will give a proud feeling compared to the other low slung cars. the feel good factor is much more than that of the cars in its same segment. maruthis wide network of service centers is an added benefit. the three pot engine fells home at the mid range rpms.

What can improve?

the ride quality is very bumpy in the back seat. the passengers will feel each and every bump in their backs. body roll is also very much pronounced. the new gen wagon r has the problem of steering box complaints because of the absence of balancing rods, and will have to changed with less kilometers on the odo. people living in places with bad roads should preferably stay away fro m this car because of the steering box problems. drivability in low speeds is a disappointment. frequent gear shifts are necessary in city driving conditions and in hilly areas. flimsy plastics has tendency to loosen up early in their life. the boot space is also a disappointment so that your wife will have to pack light. not much comfort on long drives unless the boot is fully loaded

Overall Comments

a design that will age well if maintained accordingly. more prone to dents and scratches because of the flimsy build

leaves much to be desired, but still aesthetically pleasing

very bumpy in the back side. passengers will complain when going through the bad roads

overall a nice car which also gives u a feel good factor leaveing a lot to be desirs. perfect for a a nuclear family.
