Q. Which one is better between Wagon R and Santro?
  • I prefer the santro zing model over the santro nios as I feel the cabin space is reduced and height of car is also reduced.so nios is difficult to enter for older people like parents.xing model was better santro zing was only lacking the internal dashboard features like led screen panel and steering wheel controls...other wise it's a best premium car for a small family. Nios looks like santro squeezed into Maruti 800 mould heated and taken out with packed latest features...plus 1Lac extra price tag.
  • You should buy a Santro if you want :Better looks,good performance,plush materials,good quality,value for money and feature loaded car,cozy interior and good after salesyou should buy a Wagon R if you want:Good Mileage,spacious interior,big boot,good resale value and Suzuki's amazing sales networkboth the cars are unsafe,for safety buy the tiagoaccording to your needs you can decide which is better
  • I used santro for about 9 years, it's lil bit odd looking, but Hyundai has created powerful cars like santro no doubt about Wagonr also, as Maruti Wagonr is also a top competitor of Hyundai Santro, don't know about wagonr, but i recommend santro, moreover, compare both of these family cars and ask more people about it.

  • my evergreen CAr forever even I have Vw polo... it's amazing performance look and speed and disappointed about mileage... same as polo I have groom space and dashboard clearance views.. easier to drive in cities and traffic.. I have used car for 7 years.. I have did only 3 service.. for 47,000kms ... Even its seconds Santro I purchased it runs like two wheeler anywhere in cities.. I have driven karnataka tamilnadu states in my car.. tirupati.. very less Maintainence.. no sensor problems.. but polo I faced many problems once water s done for polo car entire sensors will stop working for changing senor it' costing very high price.. polo users are one who handle their car safely. you can see many polo cars on roads which doesn't have any scratches on cars and they are only one who gives the car on periodic services and service records can be seen on car instrument cluster shows entire things.. Cruz'e control available on polo automatic climate control changes electric mirror steering adjust seat height adjust arm rest cool cabin and good leg grooms and stylish look Aero dynamics are good for performance and stylish.. if sensors are maintained good without falling in water it can be good enough for maintainence... ground clearance s less but use the cars in towns and cities.. village users don't choose the cars.. use traffic less route and junk roads it may hit under chase.. use good roads to improve suspension... gear shifting and steering are quite good n good pickup.. mileage is about 14.7 1200 petrol engine.. better than Swift cars.. polo takes race swift cars easier ... swift is not used by professional business mans.. users don't buy swift cars it's all taxi drivers and travelers using cars.. Indica swift are not so surprised cars for own board users.. many yellow board cars are Swift cars.. so everyone hates swifts Every 6000-7000kms need to service.. spare parts are low strength on Maruti Suzuki.. body quality of swift is very very poor... bolts and nuts fateners are like local parts... see the bolt nuts fasteners in polo car it's heavy and design of nuts and bolts locks becoz it have holding s***p and threading holes... but holding strips for polo are good tightened it cant remove easily by spanners.. it need pneumatic gun to remove the screws in vw polo..

  • Maruti suzuki celerio is a feture rich car.The new hatchback comes with a 1-litre dualjet petrol engine, Paired with manual and amt gearboxes.It is available in four broad trims: lxi, Vxi, Zxi, And zxi+.This car will definitely give tough competition to are the hyundai santro, Datsun go, Tata tiago and the maruti wagonr.The second gen celerio comes with all the latest and cool features.I will book test drive soon.

  • Maruti suzuki celerio is a very impressive car from price point view.It is priced from rs.4.99 - 6.94 lakh.Celerio comes in 7 variants of spec and feature combinations and available in 6 colours.It also comes with 2 automatic variants starting at rs.6.13 lakh.The only problem that i think is with the car is that it comes in only petrol variant and it is a very big issue as petrol is very expensive.

  • Maruti suzuki celerio is a 5 seater car and is very spacious.I recently took the test drive of the car and it is a dream of every middle class man like me to have a low maintenance good looking car.It has a bs6 compliant 998 cc engine which is sufficient and provides good power.The only issue i felt with the car is that at high speeds the car felt a little bit bumpy and out of control.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago
  • Maruti suzuki celerio is a very good car.I like the new variant very much as it looks very good.I like the new alloy wheels very much and the design is also very much improved.If this car ever comes in electric variant it would be very much high in the demand in the market.Maruti suzuki is offering a very good car in the range of 5 laks and i am impressed.

  • Not satisfied with the 999cc kwid automatic variant.I brought it assuming it be a descent buy at this price range.But it did not turn out the way expected.Cabin noise, Vibration is high.Pickup is low.Actual mmileage is lower than the claimed figure.Manual might be a better option.
