Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 37 - 47 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

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.

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.

Feels well screwed together; three-year warranty is reassuring. Has so far proved to be very reliable.
