This is a big no no to prevent voiding the warranty and is specifically mentioned in the owner's manual

With stock 5J rims, 175/65R14 should be an easy fit, of course that is subject to wheel arch clearance in the new WagonR. Lower variants of Swift/Dzire (from 2005) come with 5J steel rims with skinny 165/80 R14 tires, & many people over the years have upgraded to 185/70R14 (stock size of first gen Swift/Dzire top variant on 5.5JJ alloy wheels) without any problem in the long run.

Even our ex Punto MJD came with 165/80R14 tires on steel rims & immediately after taking delivery we upgraded to 185/70 R14 tires on the stock steel rims. We did over 100k km before selling the car & never did we face any problem, I believe the stock steel rims were 5J on the Punto.

As to why the rim size is 5.5JJ for first gen Swift/Dzire top variants (with 185/70R14), it has been explained here by Dbhpian Nikhilb2008:

However, the Zxi/Zdi of the first gen Dzire came with Rim size 14 x 5˝JJ

Will this cause any problem as I did not upgrade the rims ?

For me its quite a regular practice to switch from 2 to N when approaching a signal and sometimes check for tyre/road noise by shifting from higher gears to neutral. When the car is in motion, it also engages back to the appropriate gear without pressing brake. So I have done this many times on the highway for short durations to check for some abnormal noises. While re engaging gear, the beeps occur when car moves, but the transmission does shift.

BS6 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 1.0 priced from Rs 4.42 lakh


Maruti Suzuki has silently introduced the BS6-compliant version of the Wagon R 1.0. Priced between Rs 4.42-5.41 lakh, the BS6-spec model costs about Rs 8,000 more than the BS4 Wagon R 1.0. The table below has the details:

Maruti WagonR : Official Review-screenshot_20191120134206_chrome.jpg

Mechanically, the BS6 Maruti BS6 Wagon R 1.0 is identical to the BS4 model and comes with the same 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT gearbox options. The upgrade to BS6-spec has seen the ARAI-rated fuel-efficiency figures drop by 0.71kpl, from 22.5kpl to 21.79kpl.

Looking at the miniscule price difference between petrol BS4 & BS6, I believe petrol buyers must stress on buying BS6 engines only, or hold off purchases because of expected discounts on BS4 models.

On the other hand, the diesel engine game is different, and it will be interesting to see who wins, will the companies offer huge discounts to get the product off the shelf, or will they steadily deplete their inventory and risk some low sales months in Feb & March 2020.

The difference in Pune OTR price between LXi(O) Petrol and LXi(O) CNG is a whopping 70K INR. That's almost the difference between petrol and diesel hatchbacks a few years ago (agreed maybe 10-20k less). Will the CNG benefit be justified with the K10 WagonR for such a price premium? Or the already fuel efficient petrol version with a usable boot space makes more sense?

I suspect fleet operators will pick the CNG one in larger proportion compared to private owners.

In GJ and MH, I have come across more CNG WagonRs owned privately too. Quite evident when you pass by CNG stations dotted on Mumbai Ahmedabad highway where you see cars queuing up to refill at these stations and there are of course many WagonRs.

So yes, takers for CNG version even for that premium would still be there considering the potential saving the owner would make over a long term.

New or the old one? In the old version, the difference in price wasn't this big I think. And indeed a lot opted for CNG in MH metros. The new one I'm not sure. Overall private owners off late seem to pick up petrol cars over diesel and CNG for the ease of use & available boot space. My own cousin & uncle both had CNG cars (WagonR green & Indica eMax) Both eventually shifted to petrol (Jazz/Tiago). The lower power, unavailable boot space & frustrating hours spent in CNG station queues pushed them away.

Not new one obviously. I was referring to the old ones. What I was trying to imply is that despite of the gap in pricing, there will still be takers for such cars in the segment because of the buyer base and mindsets. I see more CNG Ertigas in Mumbai than Petrol or Diesels although that is a different segment the compare here.

I agree with the waiting times at CNG pumps due to which my attention would easily get grabbed seeing beeline of cars waiting to fill up but it still surprised me so see acceptance for this alternate fuel.

Has anyone tried installing aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system (with a reverse camera) yet. If so, do the alerts (low fuel, seat belt, reverse sensor) continue to display without issues on the infotainment. And what happens in case of, let's say, car is in reverse and there is low fuel alert as well - how does this get displayed on the aftermarket infotainment.
