    Wagon R LXI & LXI(O) Variant

    The WagonR LXI is priced at Rs 4.46 lakh. This variant is also available with an optional pack, which is called LXI (O) or LXI optional, which costs Rs 7,000 more than the LXI MT. For this added amount, the LXI (O) offers you the added features of passenger airbag and front seatbelt pretensioners. As, the LXI (O) offers some life saving safety features for just a nominal amount over the LXI, if you want to go for the base variant of the WagonR, then it is recommended to go for the LXI (O) instead of the LXI. The CNG version of the base variants would cost you around Rs 80,000 more.

    The WagonR LXI optional offers all the essential basic features, such as airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, seatbelt reminder and high speed alert. This variant comes with a central locking system as well. In terms of functional features, the key features include, front power windows, front accessory socket, manual AC, 1-litre bottle holders in all doors and fuel consumption & distance-to-empty reading in MID. The WagonR LXI optional variant comes with black coloured door handles and ORVMs, while the bumpers are body-coloured.

    Even by the compact hatchback segment standards, the WagonR LXI optional variant lacks some basic features such as Day/night IRVM, wheel covers, body-coloured door handles & ORVMs, Music System and Rear Power Windows. If you are on a strict budget, only then you can go for this base variant, and can retrofit some of the missing features. Otherwise, you should consider the WagonR VXI optional variant.

    The WagonR VXI variant also comes with an optional pack to choose, which is again Rs 7,000 extra and offers passenger airbag and seatbelt pretensioners. That’s why the VXI optional is a prefered choice over the regular VXI. The WagonR VXI optional is Rs 45,000 more expensive than the LXI optional.

    The WagonR VXI optional’s key features include - day/night IRVM, speed sensitive auto door lock, music system, remote central locking, electrically adjustable ORVMs, tilt steering, rear power windows and 60:40 split rear seat. The variant also offers body-coloured door handles and ORVMs, and wheel covers as well.

    Thus, the VXI optional variant offers all the basic features that are missing on the LXI optional, plus a few more important features. As per our internal data, the WagonR VXI optional’s price jump of Rs 45,000 over the LXI optional is worth it, as it offers all the basic and some convenience features as well. Thus, the VXI optional variant is recommended to all the buyers who can stretch their budget a bit over the LXI optional.

    The WagonR VXI optional is also available with the 1.2L petrol engine, which is Rs 23,000 more expensive. With this, you not only get a more powerful engine, but also the added features of steering-mounted audio controls and blacked-out B-pillar.

    If you intend to use the WagonR just for yourself and have a budget constraint, then only consider the car with the 1.0L engine. However, if you want the WagonR to be your family vehicle, then you should consider the 1.2L engine. The 1.2L engine does compromise a minor 1.2kmpl of claimed fuel efficiency, but it offers a more enjoyable drive experience. This same engine, in the same state of tune, is also available in the higher segment cars like the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Baleno. More importantly, this engine upgrade is just worth Rs 23,000 more.

For all the buyers who wish to get some feel-good features in their WagonR, the ZXI variant is a value-for-money choice. You can even make it more upmarket by retrofitting some features like rear parking camera and alloy wheels.

    Wagon R Automatic Variants 

    Wagon R VXI & VXI(O) AMT (Automatic) Variant

    In the WagonR AMT range, VXI is the base variant, and here as well by spending just Rs 7,000 more, you get the VXI optional package, which offers passenger airbag and seatbelt pretensioners; because of these must-have safety features, we again recommend the VXI (O) AMT variant.

    Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 2020 Petrol Which Variant to Buy?

    Among all the variants of the Maruti Suzuki WagonR, our top recommendation is the VXI optional with the 1.2L engine. This variant offers all the basic as well as some convenience features. We do recommend the 1.2L engine over the 1.0L engine, as it is worth it for just an additional amount of Rs. 23,000.  

    For the entry-level buyers who can’t stretch their budget, they can go for the LXI optional variant, and those buyers who can stretch their budget over the 1.2L VXI optional, they should definitely choose to buy the feature-rich ZXI variant, which is a value-for-money variant.

    Our recommendation remains similar for the WagonR AMT variants. Thus, our top recommended variant remains the VXI optional with the 1.2-litre petrol engine. The ZXI variant is the very prefered variant for those buyers who can spend some more money to enjoy all the added features.
