Compare Chevrolet Spark and Maruti Suzuki Wagon R

Key difference: The Chevrolet Spark and the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R are automobiles coming from the hatchback family of cars. They are differentiated from one another by their manufacturer, design, engine configuration, performance, etc.

The Chevrolet Spark can be understood as the gradient of Daewoo Matiz, which was produced by Daewoo Motors until its take over by General Motors, the American car maker. The take over took place in the year 2002, since when General Motors has been producing and selling the Daewoo Matiz under its own brand name 'Chevrolet Spark'. The car has been sold through its three generations, the last of which was launched in the year 2010. Comprising of the typical five door hatchback style, the Spark is sold across the world by different names such as the Matiz Creative in South Korea, Chevrolet Beat in India, Holden Barina Spark in Australia, etc. The car is not exactly loaded with features, but does enough to serve a family of four adequately. Sporting a funky and fluidic design, the spark packs in a powerful engine with an impressive displacement capacity of 995 cc. Largely available as a petrol run vehicle, the Chevrolet Spark has also been presented in its diesel variant in some select countries of the world. With a healthy fuel tank capacity of 38 liters, the Spark is almost the perfect hatchback for a pleasant weekend outing. However, the car surprisingly falls short in the fuel economy department, with a meager mileage capacity of 21 kmpl. Nevertheless, the Chevrolet Spark still manages to score big on style, and is reasonably potent in performance.

The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is the Indian version of Suzuki’s Wagon R car which is sold in the international car markets. Manufactured and sold by Maruti Suzuki, which is Suzuki’s Indian subsidiary, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R was first launched in India in December 1999. Since then, the car has been consistently featured in Maruti’s annual list of best selling cars, along with the likes of Alto, Maruti 800, etc. The Wagon R has undergone three upgrades until the year 2010. Featuring Maruti’s unique K series engine, the Wagon R is available its petrol, diesel and LPG variants as well. Made of aluminum, the K10B engine is light yet powerful in performance, benefited by a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. The car is provided with an elegant and tall finish to complement its interior features such as power steering, power windows, warning lamp, keyless entry, dual airbags, etc. Maruti has also done well to lend some unconventional aspects to this car, such as a tilted steering, under seat tray, door trim fabric, security system, etc. However, the mentioned features are not accommodated in all the models presented by Maruti. A consumer will have to shell out more money to own these features which are available only in the top models of this car. Even so, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is one of the best options available for a family that is looking out for an efficient and affordable hatchback car.
