Well, my dad was riding a 10 year old i20, we just wanted to upgrade to a new small car , since he is 65 years old and need a small and automatic car. I did various researches and shortlisted Santro Magna & Wagon R VXI 1.2 Optional. I was shocked to know that Santro has dual Airbags in only Asta model (Does safety feature has any thing to do with models ?) Anyways, finalised Wagon R VXI Automatic (O) since this model is having dual front Airbags but ultimately purchased ZXI AMT.Drive was very good, engine was refined but i had slight issues with the Dealer, who gave me August 2019 Car on 23rd January and even i asked him about model, he said, for 2020 manufactured cars you have to wait for couple of months but when dealer is giving a 6 months old car, then atleast some discount should have been provided. Glad that vehicle is BS6 (As said by Dealer, but I don't trust them) There were some scratches / minor dent in front bumper, which i checked and told to Dealer (He replaced with another new car, Sad that same will be sold to someone else).I was dissapointed by the fact, if someone is buying a new car, then Dealers can make you fool.This is not my first car, prior to this our family already ownedToyota Qualis 2000Toyota Qualis 2003Toyota Qualis 2004Toyota Innova 2006Maruti Wagon R LXI 2007Hyundai I20 Asta 2009Hyundai i20 Asta 2013Hyundai I20 Sports 2013Maruti Wagon R ZXI AMT 2020
I have bought my wagon R vxi model on September 2015 and I have driven about 53000kms so far including a single day journey of 1100 kms from Kolhapur in Maharashtra to Chennai via Karnataka. Overall performance of the car is satisfactory. It is extremely comfortable and spacious and can easily accommodate 5 persons. Overall mileage is average . I am getting about 13 km/l in city and about 16-17 km/l on Highway. maintenance cost is satisfactory and if you put company synthetic Engine Oil it goes about 6500/- to 9500/- in one time service visit after 10000 kms.Positive 1. Commendable road visibility and big spacious interiors.2. Lot of room to put bottle holders and other items in the car.3. Hassle free city and highway driving4. Easy on maintainance5. Easy ingress for taller and women due to door opening at 90 Degree angle.6. Decent fuel tank capacity of 34 litresNegative :1. Poor plastic components in interior which start rattling after 15000 kms2. Mileage is less for a 998 cc car3. No bluetooth connectivity, multi functional steering wheel or touchscreen infotainment system at the time of purchase.4. Poor stock tyres that give away in 33000 kms.5. Poor cabin insulation for road noises.
Pros : Perfect family car...lot of space and good comfort. Powerful 1.2l engine , easy to handle , wide door , good suspension , good ground clearance , head lamp visibility is good , smooth gear shift , average mileage , killer boot space ..best in segment , looks good , wide mirror , leg room and kneene room is good , good stability and low maintenance .Overall it's a practical car .Cons:Fixed head rest , No rear a/c vents , a/c cooling takes time to fill in the cabin , plastic quality is not that great , Built quality is average , no alloys , music system is not good only two speakers , rear headrests is fixed , ties support is not that good no telescopic steering wheel , seat height adjustment is missing , no rpm meter for vxi varients..and no automatic climate control.Over all its one of the best car under 7 lacs and in Hatch back segment and also one of the best selling car in this segment. It mainly focus on practicality in Indian road conditions and attracts family buyer's. Als preferred for people who need lots of space , comfort , relaxed drive in city conditions and who are looking for easy to drive car. Stay safe and drive safely.
maruti fails miserably when it comes to low range cars for family use. though it gave a mileage of more than 17 during the first year of its use, it came down quickly to about 15 or less after that.maruti dupes and cheats its patrons in the car servicing which is very poor and miserably maintained. workshops are worst in shape and are not maintained at all. vehicle will get greases and oils all over. parts are not guaranteed to be renewed when you go in for fitments during service and repairs. you may find old, refurbished parts being used by the workshop. public relations is utterly poor and the technicians often misbehave with the customers.maruti is the car to avoid when you go in for a new vehicle buy.
2005 model Lxi now re registered hardly run for 40K kms. no major repairs, air conditioner cooling coil replaced. regularly changing oil, oil filter etc. The car is fuel efficient giving around 18 to 20 in high ways, 14-15 in city. I am not a spirited driver. But occassionally for a short sprint the car is good. But not good in twists & corners. Mainly used as a family car. Originally came with power steering, ac & all door electric lock (not central lock I think). I affixed reverse camera, display & sony stereo & 4 speakers. The car still drives smoothly even after 15 years. I love the practicality though not thought about it the time of buying.
The car do look like a box ,there is nothing glamorous about the car even the new version are becoming uglier generation by generation .Do not give comfort of even sitting for someone of height 6 ft .The boot space is so less (yeah! Yous hould be like what do you want for that price) but yes the dashboard parts continously hit your knees ,not comfortable at all still I am not talking about the rear seats they are even worse ,engine sometimes gets dead during the shifting of gears (Not only me I have seen every driver struggling on that).There is no safety measures in the car( My uncle once met with accident in our car fortunately he was thrown away from the car when the car fall into a ditch ,if he was not he surely had died ,the car was turned into a heap of metal junk ,there ia not even body skeleton it was like when a kabadiwala come to your house for garbage and he crush everything to be fitted in his bag ,the car was no less than it..Hope they pay attention to safety features and add some air bags and body skeleton to the car .Yes suzuki car are meant for mileage ( we have seen ad on like "kitna deti hai" ) but seriously not only mileage counts plus don"t make it like a box .
