Suzuki Wagon-R Review (4th to 6th Generations)

Last Updated on 4月 2, 2018 by Carusedjp

Since 1993, Japanese car company Suzuki has been manufacturing the Wagon-R. Aptly fit, the R in its name represents the term “recreation.” Categorized as a “kei” or small car, this vehicle is among the pioneers of the “tall boy” or “tall wagon” design. The Suzuki Wagon-R is recognized for its unusually tall build, which includes a virtually vertical hatchback and sides, as well as a short bonnet. All the while, it keeps the dimensions required to be categorized as a kei car. On the other hand, its careful design still permits optimal cabin space.

Suzuki produced the first to third generations of the Wagon-R from 1993 to 2008. In this article, we will look closely into this model’s fourth, fifth, and sixth generations.

Popular Used Suzuki Wagon-R Units

Since 2003, the Suzuki Wagon-R has dominated records for being the highest-selling kei vehicle in Japan. As a matter of fact, in 2008, Suzuki released this model’s three-millionth unit. Even in the international market, this model has generated significant profits, especially when it was marketed in India. By the end of 2010, Suzuki has sold 5 million units of the Wagon-R. Even as a Japanese used car, this vehicle sells like pancakes.

At, we also feature a good selection of used Wagon-R units. Here are some of the most viewed models in our online catalog:

Suzuki Wagon-R (Fourth Generation)

Produced from 2008 to 2012, the fourth-generation Wagon-R had bigger rear doors, which includes quarter glass, removing the need for a D pillar arrangement. It was launched along with other variants like the AZ-Wagon, AZ-Wagon Custom, and Stingray. This generation offers powertrain features like turbocharged yet naturally aspirated 660 cc engines. Available in a 5-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, or a CVT transmission, the fourth-generation Wagon-R can generate 64 PS or 47kW.

Suzuki Wagon-R (Fifth Generation)

Manufactured from 2012-2017, the fifth-generation Wagon-R was designed with “ENE-CHARGE,” which is a mild-hybrid system that offers energy-efficient, electric air conditioning. The R06A engine has been combined with a lithium-ion battery and an electric generator/motor, providing regenerative braking. What’s more, the internal combustion engine enjoys some level of power assist while having the freedom to operate certain electrical equipment. This technology enabled the fifth-generation Wagon-R to reach up to 28.8 km/l fuel consumption.

Suzuki Wagon-R (Sixth Generation)

Launched on February 1, 2017, in Japan, the sixth-generation Wagon-R is the most recent update to the line. Anticipation even grew stronger when information on this new model was leaked on the Internet a month before its actual release. One notable improvement from its predecessor is the enhanced Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) as well as the hybrid battery’s increased capacity. Due to the modifications on the battery, when kept under a speed of 13km/h, the ISG Wagon-R can drive on its hybrid battery alone for up to ten seconds. Despite having a close semblance to the first-generation Wagon-R, this version has a recognisably contemporary design.
