Maruti Suzuki WagonR is an A-segment hatchback offering from the Indian carmaker with a tall boy design for added cabin space to accommodate tall passengers comfortably. Off late, Maruti Suzuki has started offering the option of an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) apart from the 5-speed manual transmission. Both units compliment the engine well on the fronts of driveability and mileage, which translates into a certified fuel efficiency of 20.5 km/l for the AMT, 19.3 km/l and 26.6 km/kg in the CNG variants . The doors open to almost 90 degrees which make getting in and out easy. The hatchback offers ABS and front dual airbags as an option in all variants except the CNG base litreXi trim.
Optional ABS and dual front airbags on all variants add to the safety package
Additional storage box above the glovebox offers additional space to keep smaller belongings securely
Auto Gear Shift offers a driving experience similar to an automatic car without being too expensive.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR has a dated design, but that said, it is a simple, no-nonsense one. The headlamp with a blue lens gives the car a modern touch. The fog lamps, which are available in the upper variants as standard and optional on all others, enhance the simple appeal of the hatchback. A generous use of chrome adds a bit of premium appeal to the entire package. At the rear, the clear lens tail lamps complement the design and improve visibility for motorists at the rear . Overall, the design is acceptable but could do with a refresh.
The interior of the Maruti Suzuki WagonR features a dual tone theme. The dashboard has a combination of beige and dark grey with the fabric seats in beige, door panels in beige and black. This scheme gives the cabin a spacious feel and the cabin itself can seat four adults comfortably. Legroom and headroom are generous and even tall occupants won't feel cramped. Adding to this is the convenience of cup holders in front of the driver and co-driver AC vents for keeping the temperature of your beverage in check. Additional storage spaces include a front passenger under seat tray and a storage compartment above the glovebox. A tilt steering further adds to the convenience of all the occupants of the car.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR is powered by a 998cc K10B, all-aluminium petrol engine that has an option of CNG fuel. In the petrol mode, the motor produces 67hp max power at 6,200 rpm and 90Nm peak torque at 3,500 rpm with the 5-speed manual and the AMT, while in the CNG mode, it generates 58hp & 77Nm respectively. The feel of the engine is responsive and the engine noise is acceptable for its segment.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR has two gearbox options - a 5-speed manual and an automated manual transmission. Both gearboxes offer seamless gear changes and sport gear ratios well-tuned for the engine. That said, the AMT does have the signature jerk while shifting up or down.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR has an option of dual front airbags and ABS except for the LXi Green variant. Apart from that, the hatchback has energy-absorbing crumple zones and a body structure designed to withstand impacts.
With a gross vehicle weight of 1,350 kgs, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR has a certified mileage figure of 19.3 km/l for the manual petrol, 20.51 km/l for the AMT petrol and 26.6 km/kg in the CNG variants. In terms of segment standards, the fuel efficiency is above average.
