Performing less than 1984 800? Or is it that the 800 let you "feel" the speed while the newer cars makes no bones about it.

hehe Looks like he plonked a Reva engine into his Estilo.
But yes, the feeling of speed in M800 is something else. Even at speeds less than 40kmph, you almost feel like flying. This effect is not visible even in the 800 cc Alto (which i suppose is heavier than the M800).

That is because prior to 1984 you had only 2 cars to drive & that would have been the elephant amby & the sports padmini all of which together put up just a little more BHP than the 1984 maruti. LOL

And tell me how different is the name now, just because they added an 'Estilo' there? Hows this, "Bond", and "James Bond" while we have here "Zen" and "Zen Estilo".

Zen & the Estilo are siblings. Zen is the brother & Estilo is his sister. Benny, don't get confused with the sexes now.

I thought WagonR was the male and Estilo was the female!
Never mind, but am sure 'Zen' deserves to be their naughty little child. (for its peppy nature).

Who possibly died a premature death, and is still mourned by friends and family.

Say whatever, but I have an Estilo and I jus love the way it is..
Definitely, not boxy like wagon r..
Bigger than Spark..
Much more streamlined than Wagon R..

Its not that I' ve jus driven this, but compared to many cars I ve driven, this performs pretty good..

Have taken it out for serious rough and smooth driving alike and it has nt let me down much..

Had occasional instant races on highways, got beaten only by the mightier ones like City (But, never a Scorpio/Swift/Palio :P), that too, I must admit the driver was sporty too

See!
Another Estilo owner born!
I know it has its own silent fanfare following..


Btw, would have loved to buy the original zen for its low stance aiding more edgy maneuvers than the present taller version which may jus rollover in such cases..
