Ugly Duckling

AdvantagesInexpensive, functional, maximum use of space

DisadvantagesJust look at the photograph

"The Suzuki Wagon R+ is a car you instantly love or loathe! - I love mine! When I told my best mate I'd bought a pre-owned one to replace my ageing Proton Persona he said 'Well you've never bought a decent car before, so why should you break the habit of a lifetime'. I felt his comments were a bit harsh, but I could understand where he came from. You see - the Wagon R+ is a bit like a Camel - the old joke being that it's a horse designed by ..." Read review

Economy In Mind

AdvantagesEasy for less mobile people to get into

DisadvantagesNo steering wheel control for the radio

"...cars I decided on the Suzuki Wagon R+ Special. Initially it wasn't even on my list of cars to try but I decided to test drive it on the recommendation of a friend who has had several happy years of motoring with hers, and also because the garage happened to be near to one that I had decided to visit anyway. So what is so special about the car that swung it? SAFETY FEATURES * both the driver and passenger have airbags fitted as standard. * ..." Read review

Horses for courses

AdvantagesRoomy, economic, eminently practical.

DisadvantagesNo alarm(!!!), high boot sill.

"On his TV show, Jeremy Clarkson described the WagonR as "a wendy house on wheels". Fortunately, we don't all subscribe to the vroom-vroom culture - in fact a surprising number of us don't really want to be 18 years old all our lives. It is, of course, a question of horses for courses. I wouldn't care to habitually drive from John o'Groats to Landsend in the WagonR, but then that isn't something I do too often. As a paid-up member of the arthritic-old-gits ..." Read review

Practical, reliable, cheap... Ugly!

AdvantagesGreat town car, cheap insurance group, cheap tax, cheap to run, no problems since owning it, nice little MPV.

DisadvantagesUgly, lack of leg room in back, not ideal if you are going on a long journey.

"...being the owner of a Suzuki Wagon R+. For my driving purposes it is ideal; I am a student and drive to my college daily, about 5 miles away from my house. I do not go very far very often, which is lucky -- driving long distances in the Wagon R is not very comfortable. This comes down almost entirely to the seating, which is stiff and board-like. For the driver and front passenger the room is fine, it's perhaps a little on the narrow side but ..." Read review

Top choice!

AdvantagesLow insunance group, excellent mpg, great performance, practical, spacious

DisadvantagesNo mugaurds or mats as standard

"This car has got to be the best value for money ever, with most of the best safety devices, and even more comfort ones. I like the high driving position, (enabling you to see over hedge rows, you get a better view of traffic comming in the opposite direction) it feels like your driving a range-rover, but it doesn't have the same body roll! With very little overhang, it is so easy to manouvre! The gutsy little 1.3 16 valve engine, quite hapily revs ..." Read review

Welcome to the pleb-mobile!

AdvantagesEasy to drive, ample boot space, easy for the older generation to get in

DisadvantagesTake one look at it, seat belts in the front are extremely short

"...cars now-a-days and finds the Suzuki just the right height to gently place her bottom on the seat and swing her legs in. It has also been briliant for moving her big granny armchair when she comes to stay. I can totally understand the attraction to this car when you're getting on in age as it is not full of confusing technology and you can comfortably chug along at 40 where ever you go. I would not recommend buying this car as your only means ..." Read review

EVerything except looks

AdvantagesGreat Features, average

DisadvantagesLooks SHit!!

"Well if you have economy and utility in mind look no further than the Wagon. I must admit as long as looks are concerned the Wagon looks quite like a damn box but more than makes up for it when its time to pay (installments or anything else). We decided to buy a car for my younger sister some time ago and even though the looks put us off the fact is all the other factors convinced us about our final decision. The Wagon is packed with features ..." Read review

I love my Postman Pat

AdvantagesBrilliant run around car

DisadvantagesPlacement of the horn

"I bought the Wagon R+ new 2 months ago. My previous car was a Vauxhall Agila (same body with a different badge and engine). The Wagon is far superior mainly because of the much better engine. It's great for running around town, very nippy and easy to manoeuvre, good handling. The visibility is great because of the high seating position and even better the seat has an adjustable height facility. Plenty of space in the car itself and in the boot. ..." Read review

Quick review of Suzuki Wagon R+ 1.3

"I had a Vauxhall Agila for 3 years and relpaced it 4 and a half years ago with a Suzuki Wagon R S limited. I have found an improvment in the engine capacilty, and it only needs a service once a year. The access is excelent, especaily for my elderly mum who reaally struggles to get in and out of other cars. I have found the suzi to be 100% reliable, and with 40,000 miles behind her the only work I have had done is the front brake pads renewed. I like the flat loading boot, which allows my labrador to get in easily. By the way! there is an interior light switch, its on the headlight switch you just pull it out or push it in to to switch off.

Advantagesgood driving position,good economy

Disadvantagesfirm ride due to stiff suspension,but at least its safe!

"After owning and driving dozens of cars(,many four wheel drive),I have finally found the ultimate.This car is superb,it is economical,the driving position could not be bettered,and the seat (once you find how to adjust it) is the most comfortable I have come across,its like sitting in a fireside armchair!.I have only had this car a few months,so I am still getting to know it.It is excellent on the motorway and long journeys are no problem thanks to ..."

Quick review of Suzuki Wagon R+ 1.3

"Have owned two. Am a driving instructor. Outstandingly tough and reliable. High quality build. High seating position. Brilliant views all round for learners. Reasonable maintenance costs. Noisy. Not as space efficient as more modern designs.

AdvantagesZooms at 120kph

DisadvantagesSwings and vibrates at high speeds

"I have been driving this car over a year and will really recommend you this car. First of all it is a low range car.It runs on unleaded petrol and is a tall body car. The air conditioner is amazing and cools my car within 90 seconds flat.The other reason why I chose this car is its heater,Its one of the best heaters available in cars. There are additional features steering lock and also a good storage space.Even if you store your stephanie still you ..." Read review

Suzuki Wagon R+ Workhorse and Runabout

AdvantagesGood rear space, easy access to front seat, economic on fuel

DisadvantagesNot the most beautiful looking vehicle

"...insisted that we get a Suzuki Wagon R+. I was not too thrilled at the idea as it looks a bit sit up and beg with the high seats. However, when I had a test drive I felt that I could live with it. Now, that I have got used to the way that it handles I feel a lot better disposed towards it. Having an allotment we are always carrying tools back and forth so we have the back seats almost permanently down. When we have extra passengers it is an easy matter ..." Read review

AdvantagesCheap to Run.Spacious.Easy to enter.Comfortable

Disadvantages Horn Button location.No interior light Switch

"...power steering.I heard about the Suzuki WagonR quite by chance.1/2hrs.test drive convinced us that this was the car for us. Comfortable,nippy,easy to drive and park,easy to handle at all speeds. Plus with the rear seats folded down there was lots of space for carrying large objects. Also,insurance group 2.Low mpg and road fund license. Great forward vision, especially for country roads. With a good selection of accessories to choose from we soon had ..." Read review
