Maruti Suzuki WagonR vs Hyundai Santro specification comparison

The Maruti Suzuki WagonR in its third generation is again a hit. Its prime competitor is the Hyundai Santro. Which one of these two should you buy is something which we clear in this story. The WagonR has been much applauded though personally, we feel that the model has lost its sheen and looks. It looks more boxy now but that has lead to improved space in the cabin. The vehicle also comes with an optional higher-powered 1.2-litre engine from the Swift. It also gets an AMT option. What’s more, it is BS-VI compliant as well.

Now on to the Santro. Hyundai revived the nameplate but then the vehicle hasn’t met with much success. Primarily the looks are to be blamed and then the Santro is also devoid of any driving pleasure. Take a look at the specs below and you will come to know. Out choice is the WagonR.
