The Suzuki Wagon R+ might raise a little mirth amongst those who view such citycars as little more than toys, but the second-generation cars are more than the urban buzz boxes the early versions represented. With a 1.3-litre engine to power a car that weighs virtually nothing, it returns superb fuel economy and has a reasonable turn of speed to boot. The general public never really took to the car, however, preferring more conventional tots like the Fiat Seicento and the Ford Ka. Even the Wagon R's close cousin, the Vauxhall Agila, was met with a distinctly cool reception.
As a used buy the Wagon R+ makes a great deal of sense as long as you can get along with the looks. If you can't, no amount of logic is going to sway you from something a bit more mainstream, a concept the little Suzuki struggles to come to terms with.
The Suzuki Wagon R+ is a car that makes a good deal more sense after you've used it for a while. The amount of space inside, the no-nonsense mechanicals and the low running costs make it a very practical urban scoot that's not averse to the longer journey. If you can find a nearly new 1.3-litre second-generation car, take it for a test drive. They're genuinely good fun, and you may become a convert. And the looks? Well, if you're on the inside.
