“Ugly Duckling”

published 19/05/2005

Inexpensive, functional, maximum use of space

Just 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...

“Economy In Mind”

published 26/10/2002

Easy for less mobile people to get into

No steering wheel control for the radio

As an accountant I don't usually buy a brand new car, but for the best part-ex deal on my dying Clio I decided that needs must! After trying numerous 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...

“Horses for courses”

published 11/01/2001

Roomy, economic, eminently practical.

No 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...

No 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...

Although I don't own this car I drive it every day practically, it is actually owned by my parents (but I don't hold that against them). My Dad thinks this car is the best thing since sliced bread, "its simple, cheap, drives well and I can get nearly everything I want to move in it" he says. I...

I consider myself as fortunate, 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...

“EVerything except looks”

published 03/05/2004

Great Features, average

Looks 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...

“I love my Postman Pat”

Brilliant run around car

Placement 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...

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.

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.

Zooms at 120kph

Swings 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...

Not the most beautiful looking vehicle

Because my wife was having neck pain problems she 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...

Cheap to Run.Spacious.Easy to enter.Comfortable

Horn Button location.No interior light Switch

I had to buy another car because of my wife's bad back and the arthritis in my wrist. My other car being low down was difficult for her to get out of, and it had no power steering.I heard about the Suzuki WagonR quite by chance.1/2hrs.test drive convinced us that this was the car for us...
