For those who thought that the Wagon R was not sporty, the Celerio was the car of choice. Although it has not sold enough cars. The Datsun Go is not a serious competitor for the Wagon R . The Wagon R offers more space than the Datsun Go, even though it is smaller.

Maruti Wagon R PRO’s & CON’s

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

The 1 litre engine produces almost the same power as the Santro, Go, and Celerio, while the 1.2 litre engine is comparable with the Tiago in terms of power.

The Wagon R engine comes in 3 and 4 cylinder versions, while the Santro comes only in the four-cylinder version that offers 69 hp of power.

The Wagon R has the Apple Car play/ Android Auto, while the Tiago unit has only Android Auto.

Like the Go, the Wagon R has LED daytime running lamps, a feature that is absent in the Santro, Celerio, and the Tiago.

Wagon R is undoubtedly the tall boy in its category as it has the maximum height compared to its competitors. It has to offer the most boot space and leaves its rivals far behind on both these parameters.

But the Wagon R does not have alloy wheels which are part of the Celerio, Tiago, and the Go.

It is nice to note that features such as ABS with EBD, seat-belt reminder, rear parking sensors, and driver airbags are available in all cars in this category.

It is certainly not the biggest car in its category as that title goes to the Datsun Go.

In terms of power, the Wagon R is less powerful than the Tiago, which is the most powerful in this category.

One notable drawback of the Wagon R is its center storage. The gear blocks the driver’s access to the centre storage, and things could worsen if you had your USB cable charging in the center.

The seat fabric is light and good-looking but requires maintenance.

The Wagon R has a sturdy build and can tackle any terrain with ease. But the Hyundai grand i10 offers a bigger engine and more power with torque. Compared to the Renault Triber, the Wagon R provides marginally better mileage. Its comparability to the Tiago in terms of engine power is an excellent draw among car buyers. You will also be surprised by the engine’s ability to crawl in city traffic. Although it may be smaller than the Datsun Go, it is spacious enough, and the high seats make entry and exit easy. Better headroom makes the car seem extra spacious. The latest model has a bold new look. It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that it looks premium and upmarket. To sum up, the new Wagon R combines excellent value for money with a bold modern outlook. Its predecessor lacked in the looks department, but the latest model has overcome this with dashing looks and a youthful appeal.
