I was thinking to purchase a vehicle for the family from a long time and finally, after quite a long research, I decided to purchase this car. I purchased this vehicle over the Santro and S-Presso because the Wagonr with some extra accessories has much more better looks and styling which gives it a feel of a mini SUV which I think S-Presso was unable to give. Another reason to purchase this car was the trust of Maruti Suzuki as I earlier had a Maruti 800 for around 12 years and even after such a long time, it didn't give me much pain and even helped me to get an exchange discount. Its one year since purchase and I have driven 6000 KMS with it. The driving experience with this car is great. The cabin is quiet while driving and the simplistic interior attracts me. The seats are quite comfortable and as well as the seating position is also nice giving me a commanding position on this vehicle giving me a nice view of my surroundings for a safe drive. The car gives a mileage of 18-20 kmpl in city and on highway you can get up to 22 kmpl. I have purchased the 1 L variant and I think it gives good performance for both city and highway. When I used to press the accelerator completely down this car gives great power enough to draw the eyeballs of people moving nearby the road. There are some problems that build quality of the vehicle is not enough strong compared to its competitors like Tiago but when I did a detailed study of crash test report by EURO NCAP of Wagonr and Santro I found out that it scored higher points than Santro making it much more safer than it. In adult safety Wagonr scored 6.93 and for child safety it scored 16.33 while the Santro scored 6.74 for adult and 15.00 for child occupant. The car is easy to maintain and the service experience with Maruti is also quite good just the weak point is that their is a long waiting period to get the car serviced and they take complete day to get it serviced as cars arrive in large numbers at their service centers. The buying experience with Maruti is also good as they helped me a lot in going through the process and upon request gave me a additional discount of Rs 10000. I purchased one with a Silver colour which makes it shine and look more attractive and helps to highlight the exterior details. According to me you should go for a silver colour as it do not look much dirty as the brown one. Other colours are quite difficult to maintain as the dirt can be seen easily on them in daylight.
The whole experience was great and I am totally satisfied with Wagonr and I suggest you to surely go for this over Santro.
