Last Updated: 23 Jul 2014
This Wagon R+ is curvier and less van-like than before, but retains the practicality that's won it a niche following. It shares the same shape - but not its engines - with the Vauxhall Agila, but it's the Suzuki that's the better product.

Running costs

Depreciation is fairly steep and heavy discounting is rife. Almost 50 mpg is possible in everyday use; cheap group 2 insurance. Suzuki dealers tend to offer reasonably-priced servicing, but expensive parts.

Emissions summary

Wagon-R+ scores well on the eco front. With an average of 160 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are relatively low for a mini estate. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.2-litre petrol, which is one of the greenest models in the range.

The range is also fairly economical, averaging 43 mpg.
