Default Help to choose between zen/800

Hello Seniors,

Within a budget of 75000/- (or even lesser !) can one get a really good 2nd hand zen (previous owners 1) in Mumbai?

Or is it better to opt for a Maruti 800?

I intend to keep the car for ~2/3years.

Appreciate your comments in detail.

With regards,

Try to go for the 5 speed mpfi 800.Also check out mpfi 5 speed ones which have a brake booster as some had it and some did not.The braking is pathetic and brake booster will make a car breeze in the stopping department.U will have to increase your bugest little for this babe but its worth the penny spent

With regards,
there is no way u can get a good zen for 75 k. even if u compromise on the ownership, condition etc & go for the zen, u will not get a decent price when u sell it after 2/3 years. 800 will always have a huge market in india & thereby u will be able to sell it at a better price.

cheers
