Which used Suzuki Wagon R estate should I buy?

The cheapest Wagon R is the 64bhp 1.0-litre model in GA trim. These ran from 1997 to 2000, and come with electric mirrors, an airbag and an immobiliser.

This engine also came in GL trim for a while, which adds alloys, electric windows, central locking and deadlocks. There was also a 68bhp 1.2-litre engine, but only in GL trim. Eventually, the 1.0 GL was discontinued to leave either the 1.0 GA or the 1.2 GL.

Sadly, both engines are fairly wretched; each is underpowered and noisy. Of the two, go for the 1.2, because at least you'll get a vaguely decent level of performance.

The car was face-lifted in 2000. As well as looking much better, it was also better to drive thanks to a 75bhp 1.3-litre engine. Available only in GL trim, its standard kit includes remote central locking, twin front airbags, a CD player, anti-lock brakes and electric windows. If you can afford it, we'd strongly recommend you choose this one.
