Agreed, but try explaining that to a cab driver, he will still stick to the mileage quotient- less cc, more mileage.

Re: Next-gen Maruti WagonR spied. Edit: Launched @ Rs. 4.19 lakhs

With Harrier storm, this thread went silent

Thanks to Hyundai, Maruti had enough room to price the Wagon R. But what's catchy is the difference between 1L & 1.2L petrol engines. Just 20k?

I drive the Estilo everyday and can vouch for the crappy drive-ability(non-existent low-end) of that anemic engine. On slight inclines/speed-breakers, with 2 people on-board it just struggles in even 2nd gear with AC on. For folks going in for VXi onwards its a no-brainer really. 1.2L should be the choice by default.

Re: Next-gen Maruti WagonR spied. Edit: Launched @ Rs. 4.19 lakhs

The website shows that the car has LED Projector headlamps but the features list in the brochure doesn't mention its presence. Am I missing something here or is it that LED Projectors are standard? (highly unlikely to be).

So the extra 20k gives you not only the engine upgrade but also steering mounted controls for the audio system, which I feel are not just a convenience feature but an important safety feature as well. I feel that the 1.2 VXI will see the biggest chunk among the variants. However, for the love of god, I simply can't digest the fact that the tachometer is available only on the top end ZXI.

Tachometer is actually a huge deal breaker for me and I would happily settle for a car which is slightly down on power and other features but provides me a tacho.

Well i will agree that a lack of tachometer is annoying and the console looks cheap without it but i won't go the extent of saying it is a deal breaker, i anyways change the gear with how i feel rather than looking at the tacho, i can say this because just last week i drove my friend's Dzire Lxi which lacks a tachometer but i enjoyed every second of driving that wonderful K series engine, i never once glanced at the console or missed it, i revved it however i liked and changed gear the way i usually do, no problems.
So yes engine or more power matters much more to a driving experience than a tachometer for instance.

Re: Next-gen Maruti WagonR spied. Edit: Launched @ Rs. 4.19 lakhs

Rear wiper with defogger, fog lamps and tachometer are the key items missing from the Vxi variant. They should have provided it at least the the Vxi 1.2 variant. Key gains - ABS + EBD and driver airbag is now standard. The 1.2l variants is something that would have hit Hyundai like a bolt from the blue.

Also, looks like they have shaved off quite a few kgs from the previous gen WagonR, but still it is not reflecting heavily on the FE figures..

Thanks for sharing your opinion with us. However, I stick to mine.

It is not just about changing the gears, seeing the revv meter climb up gives you a different sense of thrill. Something which is missing in cars which are not equipped with a tachometer.

I hope build quality also improves with the new Waggy. The last one especially after munching up some kms felt absolutely rickety and noisy in comparison to better built competition and siblings.

Re: Next-gen Maruti WagonR spied. Edit: Launched @ Rs. 4.19 lakhs

Sad to see the flat front seats like Datsun Redi-Go and no adjustable headrests for front and rear passengers even in the top variant. I see a lot of cost cutting in one of the most important areas by all manufacturers: seats. Our 2006 Zen Lxi had fatter front seats. Maybe it has got to do with the expensive music system, but that part can always be upgraded, not the seats.

It will be interesting to watch the battle between Santro and Wagon-R. Will people prefer a better engine over better interior quality ? We are back to the 2000's where the tall-boy Santro competed with tall boy Wagon-R

Just saw the brochure, the Magma grey color surely looks upmarket on the new Wagon-R.

They have corrected the LED projectors to Dual Split Headlamps. Maybe this will be introduced in ZXI+ with LED projectors and alloy wheels, who knows!

The same Smartplay studio system is confirmed for the upcoming Baleno facelift as well.

Just like Santro, the Wagon R top variants are priced heavily. Almost 6.5 lacs on-road for the Z AMT variant. Ignis is generally available with good discounts and the Zeta AMT should not be too far. Ignis is also better equipped (minus the touchscreen system).

Will this make people consider Ignis now?

CNG Later
But NO LPG


The company has announced that a CNG version will be introduced at a later stage. That said, the manufacturer has dismissed the possibility of the introduction of an LPG option.

Quote:
on the sidelines of the new model's launch, Mr C V Raman, Senior Executive Director (Engineering), Maruti Suzuki India Ltd said -

We are working on the CNG version. I will not be able to tell you a definite launch timeline but we are definitely working on it. There is no merit of having an LPG (variant).
