Overview

Maruti Suzuki’s money spinning WagonR has been tantamount to the word practical. It has earned this reputation in not just a year or two but in almost 2 decades with over 2 million instances plying on the roads. WagonR has always been a car for those who are searching for a practical and utilitarian hatchback. Now in this third generation, the car still sticks to its tallboy boxy image. The latest updates are very crucial from the buyer’s point of view since the preferences and market trends have changed drastically over these years. The new WagonR comes with the right mix of ingredients with the same core practical value for which it is known for. The car now looks bigger and mature from outside while it witness a sea of changes inside with the new engine option on board. And all these are enough to take on its rivals.
At the outside, despite of generation jump, the car should not be mistaken for anything else but that old WagonR. The car underpins the latest Suzuki’s Heartect modular platform which makes it longer and wider. The vehicle is unmistakably boxy and carries the same basic formula of tall height and large sized windows. However, there are some innovations here such as a small silver of chrome inside the headlights for giving a premium touch. Further, a part of the C-pillar has been blackened to lend the car a floating roof effect. The front profile is comparatively flatter and the car gets an all-new flat rectangular grille and revised headlamps which are chunkier than the earlier version.
The headlights are also multi-reflector units just like in other competitors. At the sides, the third-gen mode seems to be deviating from the original design as it gets prominent creases on the wheel arches with noticeable waistline. The car also gets all around body cladding as well. The flat rear profile is nearly identical to the earlier version, however, the windscreen is a bit scraped as compared to the previous version. The license plate also finds a new place on the boot lid and the tail lights seems to have taken inspiration from Volvo cars. Dimensionally, the car has seen alterations. The car now measures 3655mm in length, 1620mm in width, 1675mm in height while the wheelbase stands at 2435mm. With the generation change, the refreshed WagonR also comes with new colour options including Magma Grey Silky Silver, Autumn Orange, Superior White, Poolside Blue and Nutmeg Brown.
The interiors of the car will be a familiar affair for most people. The car looks sedate and isn’t breaking any new grounds in terms of design. However, the overall finish has a modern sense of flair as well as strong touch of aesthetics. The carmaker has given a well thought to the basics, the dashboard is flat and upright sparing more space for the front passengers. Then the car has been given healthy amount of storage in the form of dual gloveboxes, central cubbyholes and space for a bottle holder in each door. There are major changes this time around and one of the most prominent is the 7-inch SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment powered by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The infotainment also comes with connectivity options such as Bluetooth, USB and Aux-In and work in harmony with the steering mounted audio controls which is also new to WagonR. The car has strong come back in terms of comfort with features such as 60:40 rear split, redesigned instrument console, electronically adjustable ORVM, air conditioner with heater and keyless entry.
In terms of safety, the new Wagon has been updated as driver airbag, ABS with EBD speed alert system, seatbelt reminder with buzzer and rear parking sensors are now standard fitment. The top end variants come loaded with additional co-passenger airbag, seatbelt pretensioners, speed sensitive auto door lock, central locking and front fog lamps.
As far as specifications are concerned, the new WagonR will come two engine options, first time in its history. The base variants will get the same 1.0L K10B petrol engine which makes 68PS and 90Nm of torque while the 1.2L engine which also does its duty in Swift, Ignis and Baleno is good for producing 83PS and 113Nm of torque. Both the engines get the option of 5-speed manual and Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). The company also claims improved fuel efficiency as the petrol variants powered by 1.0L engine delivers 22.5kmpl, the 1.2L motor on the other hand returns 21.5kmpl, certified by ARAI.
With new features and updated safety aspects, the pricing has also been spruced up. The car will be available in the same L,V and Z variants with different pricing structure. The new Maruti WagonR now starts at Rs. 4.19 lakhs while the top end variant will cost Rs. 5.69 lakh, ex-showroom. The updated WagonR will compete against new Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago in the segment.

Interior

The doors of the new WagonR open wide and ingress is like walking into the cabin. The interiors are adorned in beige and black theme and gives roomy feeling despite the fact that majority of the parts such as A-pillars have been blackened. Pointless to mention that there isn’t any lack of headroom for a 5.8inch tall person and we guess even a 6 footer will have no qualms. But when a short driver hops on the driver seat he would grumble about the missing height adjustable feature and just like before, the front passengers have to sit from the windscreen. So, for people want to have a view of the bonnet, should keep a cushion handy. However, it is easy to get into the perfect driving position as the car now gets tilt-adjustable steering wheel which is the same working in Ignis, giving an upmarket feel.
Another area of improvement is the quality of plastics but it lacks consistency. For example, the plastic on the centre console below the handbrake wasn’t fragile in the earlier version. The new WagonR also gets revamped instrument panel featuring orange backlight. And what’s cool is that the fuel efficiency can also be displayed on the infotainment system and might prompt the driver to change his driving habits which is a good move as far as environment is concerned.
Coming to the most prominent addition in this model, the SmartPlay Studio which the company calls it is completely new and features both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are tons of apps this infotainment support and which you can download on your phone. These include offline maps such as Navimaps and Aha radio to tune into favorite radio channels. The touchscreen infotainment is justly responsive while the SmartPlay Studio app on your smartphone also gives you the power of turning your smartphone into a remote control. The infotainment which is placed in the center of the dashboard slightly protrudes out.
Adjacent to the infotainment there are AC vents vertically stacked with one angled towards the driver, the other one towards the co-passenger. And both of the vents cannot be shut completely and the sad part of the ergonomics is that the vent which is placed on the driver’s side blows cold air either on the steering or the roof. Talking about the utilities in the car, Maruti has provided 1 bottle holder at each door with addition room for stashing knick knacks. Further, there is storage space right under the passenger seat, a cup holder ahead of handbrake lever in the console located between the front seats. People who know about the pop-out type cup holder which was there on the right hand side of the dashboard, is no longer there in the new model, sparing enough space to store stuffs. Moreover, the earlier small glove compartment which was there on the top of the main glovebox, has also been removed, but for good reason as Maruti has fitted airbag there.
Other comfort features in the car for added convenience include one-touch down front power window, electrically adjustable/foldable ORVMs and day/night IRVM. Talking about the space, there is ample headroom and legroom at the back, plenty for 6 feet tall person. The rear passenger can stretch his feet as there has space available under the front seat and this adds to the more leg space. The sense of space is further accentuated with the fact when you sit at the back and see the opposite end of the A pillar.
But there are some downsides for the rear passengers too. The first thing is that although the back seat is roomy, it features fixed headrests which lack sufficient support for averages-sized adults. Further, the under-thigh support could have been better and a 12V socket for the back benchers would have added to the value for money quotient. Secondly, the switches for the power windows at the rear are placed slightly at the uncomfortable operating position.
Coming to the boot space, the volume of the car stands at 341L which is about the double of the earlier model. These numbers are even more than that of Vitara Brezza which has 328L of space. Further, there is rear 60:40 split which allow you to extend the volume upto 710L which is incredible to say the least. This means 2 passengers with a lot of their luggage to the airport or station can be carried with ease. Overall, new WagonR scores many brownie points in every area be it is space, utility, comfort and convenience. It is certainly several notches ahead of the earlier model.

Exterior

The new WagonR is unquestionably the same even if you view the car from a distance. The vehicle is still the same tall boy but with larger dimensions which make it more balanced than ever. In simple words, you can say it looks less awkward in the latest version. Besides new headlights and tail lights, the vehicle has become curvier, however, it is still identical to the earlier model when viewed from different angles. The innovative factor comes in the form of new orange colour and the floating roof styling.
The new WagonR underpins Maruti Ignis’ Heartect A platform which makes it bigger than the earlier model. It is now 56mm lengthier, 125mm wider and these increased dimensions are pretty much noticeable spot on. The wheelbase has also been increased by 35mm which translates more space inside. And on paper, though the new one is shorter by 25mm, it is mainly due to the fact that the earlier mode has roof rails. Unlike what the second-gen WagonR which boasts of projector headlamps and alloy wheels in the top spec VXI variant, the latest model features multi-reflector halogen headlamps while there are full wheel covers which are reserved for the top of the range model.
Although, the carmaker doesn’t give you any provision for upgrading your headlamps, you can choose 14-inch alloy wheels offered as optional accessory for the new WagonR. If you get closer you will see that the new design elements make the car looks pretty much mature. The huge swept-back headlamps features a unique kink on the side portion and the new shoulder line running across the length of the vehicle adds to that grown-up image. The flat rectangular grille strengthens the gained horizontal real estate.
Then there is a break above the front and wheel arches and floating roof design all this make this car a lot less plain jane. Even if you look at the rear profile, the license plate remains on its typical place on the bootlid while the waterfall styled tail lights does add some contemporary imprints. But if we are talking about staying up to date, there are some misses such as DRLs which should have been there at least on the top-spec model. The windscreen at the back is slightly scraped up as against the earlier version. And unlike the earlier version, the rear bumper does not feature fog lamps.

Mileage Running Cost

In terms of fuel efficiency, the figures have seen a bump. Where the 1.0L petrol engine delivers 22.5kmpl in both manual and automatic versions, the newly added 1.2L on the other hand, returns ARAI certified 21.5kmpl in both the manual and automatic transmission. These figures are slightly less on paper than Tata Tiago.
Unfortunately, there is no CNG variant this time around, so folks interested in the CNG variant might have to wait for a while to get some news from Maruti Suzuki.

Comfort Suspension

In terms of ride quality, the new WagonR has considerably improved over the last generation model. Thanks to the updated chassis which is stiffer along with softer suspension and wider tyres that makes the overall ride comfortable. And unlike the earlier model, the bumps and road undulations doesn’t bother much to this tallboy vehicle. The new 4-cylinder engine produces less vibration as compared to older model with 3-cylinder powertrain.
Coming to the steering, it is a bit heavier while driving in the cities and slightly vague as well. A bit more feel to it would have done the job. And while the wheels at the front are partly covered, the rear one does not get any cladding. Thus, debris and other imperfections that hit the wheel can be heard inside the cabin. Additional cladding would have warded off these undulations and offered a decent ride experience. However, these small things aren’t the deal breaker, especially for the WagonR lovers and the class it falls in.
As usual, the vehicle doesn’t like to be turned sharply as it would simply roll. This is due to fact that it is tall and has softer suspension. So, like other cars in its class, it wishes to be driven in a sedate manner. And honestly, if you are driving in a sedate manner in city premises, the vehicle will definitely impress you, especially if you have the powerful powertrain and comfortable ride quality. Moreover, small turning radius can make zooming past traffic easy and beneficial in tight parking spots.

Engine Performance

The new WagonR sources its power from two petrol engines with manual and automatic transmission options. The 1.0 is the same 3-cylinder K10B unit that makes 68PS and 90Nm of max torque. The prominent addition this time around is the more powerful 1.2L engine which also powered the Baleno and Ignis hatchbacks. The engine produces 83PS and 113Nm of torque. So, those who want more power from the car, the 1.2L engine is surely the best choice and it doesn’t affect the fuel efficiency much.
Although both the engines are good for city driving, the 1.2L with 15PS of more and 23Nm of extra torque can change the things on the go. And with reduced kerb weight of 50kg, the new engine offers peppy performance as against the earlier model. The car doesn’t require much downshifts and picking up the speed is comparatively easier. So, the engine doesn’t ask for downshifts if you are trying to gather up the speed from 15-20kmph in the third gear.
And what’s come to surprise is that the engine is quite audible in the WagonR although it isn’t the case with other siblings Ignis and Baleno. The reason could be the lack of insulation in the WagonR.

Braking Safety

Braking setup is impressive and the car comes to halt without any drama. In terms of safety, the new WagonR has been improved in many areas. The car now comes loaded with driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD, child seat ISOFIX anchors and rear parking sensors as part of standard fitment.
The top of the range model is equipped with additional features such as co-passenger airbag, speed sensitive auto door lock, seatbelt pretensioners, front fog lamps and central locking.
