Recently Asked User Questions

Q. What is difference between 1.0 liter and 1.2 liter engine in new Wagon R
  • 1.0 engine is better in terms of moderate power and best mileage than 1.2. In 1.2 more acceleration means more fuel loss and there is no remarkable increase in power especially in hills n steep hairpins while compared to 1litre. The 1l has spontaneous power in highways when crossing 60km/hr. Cost wise also cheaper and economical and we get the same big sized car without a single difference!!!!
  • As the name suggests, 1.2 ltr means more power for quick acceleration. but it will also increase petrol bill.
  • The whole character is different,1.0 is a 3 cylinder making 69hp1.2 is a 4 cylinder making 83 hpRefinement,power,drive is a plus in 1.2 and mileage is plus in 1.0

Q. I am planning on buying my first car. my budget is 6 lakhs and cannot exceed that. mostly will drive it in city and occasionally long trips. I am too confused. please suggest me some good hatchback cars with good performance, good added features, descent leg space for passengers and good exterior looks with low maintenance. - Wagon R 2019?
  • Go for spresso looks a little bit odd but has the feel of SUV, ON ROAD Hyderabad price is 6.03 lacs top end.AMTMILEAGE 16 to 18
  • First car. Buy wagonR vxi1.2Thats the best you can make out of your money.Anyways if you are ok leasing then save these 6lakhs and opt for leasing option.Every company is coming out with these plan.
  • Bro, I too did a lot of research before purchase. I am 6.2 and Wagon R is having good leg space in your budget

Q. Which car is best Wagon R CNG or Hyundai Santro CNG?
  • Both cars are good if you looking for better interior fit and finish and some amount of features santro is good but if your running is more wagon r is better option i think more reliable i know that service experience of MS is not good as hyundai
  • Santro sports cng is good in all aspect in terms of space, features and performance but its approximately 1lac expensive to wagon R lxi cng, moreover build quality is also good of santro so provides you with better safety, but fuel economy is less for santro sports cng as compared to wagorR lxi cng so make your decision accordingly, but santro is a clear winner if price is nor a barrier
  • Both the cars are great in comfort and mileage. if you want to opt for CNG, i would recommend go fo hyundai. because hyundai cars do not feel powerless when running on cng, on the other hand, maruti will feel powerless even on higher speeds. if you are looking a car to drive in city, go for hyndai. both the cars are highly reliable. so in terms of performance, hyundai is better

    This was my first car, after dabbling with zens of the world, i finally arrived at this beauty. 2009 was the year when there were a lot of scepticism about the premium hatchback segment. However still decided against the wave and spent 10 years liking this car and my decision every moment. Reasons to like the car was always the ahead of time facilities at that point of time - auto door lock, aux connection, rear window washer, foglights ( which i had used as DRLs for quite some time). I have had a couple of trips in very precarious road conditions and evertime this trusted beast delivered. So in case you are reading this review wondering wether to buy a refurbished old i20 or not.. as long as your garage guy does not show any particular apprehension, i would say go for it.

  • 5.0

    Overall i20 is complete package in terms of mileage performance and safety.I bought this after rejecting maruti swift that time because of cheap build quality.I have mileage of 19 kmpl on highway with ac on 1 point outside temprature was around 40 degree.Ride quality is better than all other maruti cars.If you dnt wan to beleive then go for test ride.One pint to add very less cabin noise as compare to all other cars.

    Fitted with rto approved cng so it can run on petrol as well as cng with excellent milage.It is run within family use only and is very good in comfort.All papers including comprehensive acko insurance is available.

  • 5.0

    The car has mainly been used for annual mumbai-goa trips and that is why only 10614km has been driven.It's in good condition and the only reason i'm selling is that i want to shift to an automatic transmission.

  • 5.0

    This is my first car.I was confused between venue and i20.But i was impressed with the low end torque and comfort of i20.5 people can sit comfortably.This is my first car and i am so far satisfied with it.

    We bought it second hand in the year 2006 from a dealer who didn't tell us who the previous owner was? We don't know about the pollution compliance of the vehicle. It took us more than 6 months to get it registered in our name. Now during renewal of car insurance this year , the pollution compliance was asked which can be told only by the original dealer or owner.My query is how to get the name of original owner of the car? And the pollution compliance of the car.

    IL is giving adequate power especially in highways and awesome mileage. Since 2010 1000cc overpowers any other competitors even 1.2 wagon also which is costlier than 1L. 1.2 has no noticeable difference in pickup than 1.0. Iam using both but 1.2 is simply drain of money which drinks petrol if not drive as per company way of driving

    Really I have been enjoying this car. It is not merely a comfortable and safe vehicle rather I would like to say it is more like an intimate friend caring, comforting, providing safety and pleasure in a gentle friendly economic way. If I have buy a new car surely I would like to opt for wagon R car again.

    Completed around 5 thousand kms on this car.. I own a bs6 manual rxt...on road price in noida was 7.24 in Feb 20...driven on highways, hills of uttarakhand, in noida city in traffic. In city I am getting mileage of around 14 on highways it increases to 19.. it cruises smoothly on highways.. very stable even at high speeds of 120+ except for the slight body roll. I took it max to 140. It however takes time to reach top speeds and is not the quickest of the cars.. but I don't mind it much... Ride quality is very good and it feels quite comfortable even on rough terrains thanks to the good suspension and high ground clearance.. on hills too I drove it with 6 people on board and it climbs up without any issues.. however the engine note is loud when I rev it too much.. due to three cylinder engine I suppose. the interiors are pretty nice .. infotainment console , air-conditioning all is perfect with vents in all three rows! The all digital instrument cluster is very useful and intuitive.. the gear shift indicators, door open warning, lights on warning all are very useful.. next coming to space its a king of space after you remove the third rows completely.. I could fit in two adult size bicycles on my recent trip which was so much fun later on.. imagine going on a trip with your bicycles with you in your car.. unbelievable.. now coming to the cons... I don't like the door locks which are like from the first generation cars.. and the antenna which looks too long but we can certainly remove if we don't need.. the car shudders in reverse gear if there is a slight slope and you need to give more throttle to avoid that... I think we need to get used to the car clutch setting and understand it to get the best out of it...and the AC fan noise is loud from outside.. you won't know it from inside but someone outside will certainly hear the noise the ac makes...Rest all is good.. I must also say that noida sector 62 staff is very courteous and I have no complains so far.. my first service was totally free and so far the car has been loyal and touch wood I have not faced a single issue.. I think anybody who is not too performance savvy can go for it..

    Renault Triber is an exciting car, I purchased it on 10th Nov 2019. For RXZ Model with 15' Tyre it cost me Rs. 8.11 Lakcs on road in Mumbai. (Paid Rs. 5,500/- extra for the Tyre upgrade)It comes with essentials features like Reverse Camera, 2nd and 3rd row Air Condition vents, infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, key-less entry, DRLs, etc. What more can you expect at this price?Why Renault Triber?We are a family of three, at times my parents joins us and occasionally it is my brother's family. So we wanted a car which can accommodate 6 people and 2 kids for occasional travel. Triber gives me a flexible option of converting it from 5 seater to 7 seater when we have extra family members. I wanted a big family car with basic to advanced features, if you compare it with competition, you would have to shell out 10+ lakh rupees easily. Triber gave me a good balance between budget and expectations. It also gives my family an option to travel together instead of traveling in two different cars.Which features I miss in Triber?1. Automatic Climate Control2. Automatic TransmissionThese features are not deal breaker. Renault Triber is coming up with Automatic model, I am assuming that it should have Climate Control as well.Car Performance?Its too early to comment on the car performance, maintenance cost and mileage. I am expecting it to give me around 13 kmpl; I will be in a position to comment on this after the first service.Who should buy Triber?The answer depends on how often you travel with full load of 6 to 7 members. Then you will have to perform cost-benefit analysis. For a family of 5, with couple of members joining you occasionally, I think Triber is the best option at the given price. Is engine power an issue?I do not know (yet). If Ecco can take a load of 8 people then why not Triber?

    I bought trier rxe in july 2020 in patna. it is a amazing car with lot of space. engine power is awesome. we went to long trip from triber from patna to Kolkata. triber gives us outstanding performance. we are around 8 peoples with their luggage. triber performed great. patna to kolata is around 600km and triber completes in just 3000rs of petrol. it gives a good mileage as well ac is very powerful.i have invested my money in good product. one more thing which i want to share i have wagonr 2015 model as well that is my parent carafter using triber, when i tried wagonr. i fell like it is a toy and very uncomfortable. tirber give me a luxury car fillings.

    I bought renault triber rxz on 08-10-2020 from pps wagholi.My odometer reading was 1200 when we started our first long trip.We had gone from pune to varanasi via ujjain, Bhopal, Sagar, Reva and return to pune via jabalpur, Raipur and nagpur.Total distance i traveled is around 3700 km in twelve days and the driving experience was good.In ghats, Triber performed well.Maximum speed i drove my triber is 120km/h and the car performance was good.Fuel average i got was around 18.3 km/l.Car was performing very good in bad roads also.No complaints till now with the vehicle.With this budget, This car is a good deal.

    I did a test drive of the vehicle. Powerful engine. We were 6 people on board, with AC on, pulled easily in 2 gear from 7kmph. 35 to 100+ in 4th gear was also easy. Most important thing is it is not kwid"s 1 litre engine. Its an ENERGY innovation combined with dual vvt. Intelligent gear ratios maintain optimum rpms throught the rev range. Ride and handling is a benchmark. Renault was supplying engines to Rolls Royce. In india, Renault-Nissan provide engines to Benz A class vehicle. Think about their potential. Triber is a superb car. Well done Renault
