Tall boy slugfest: Hyundai i10 vs Maruti Wagon R shoot out
THERE'S A HISTORY here. A few moons ago, the original Wagon R and Santro were locked in a titanic tussle for supremacy in India's family car hatchery. Both evolved with styling updates, refreshed interiors and new engines. That was then.
Now in 2010, we have the all-new Wagon R that once again faces a traditional rival from Hyundai. The i10 is the spiritual successor of the Santro nee Atos, which it has replaced worldwide. On the other hand, Maruti persists with the Wagon R brand and it has good reason to do so. It is a brand that has endeared itself to lakhs of Indian family car buyers. Here, we'll evaluate the new Wagon R and pit it against its obvious rival. This is going to be a pitched battle.
