Hi Ranendra,

You have made a nice choice. I have a fan of alto since my bro got it. Mna it is bettre than zen in features and a gr8 average car. Give around 20 - 22 in city. First i thought bro was jokign but then he gave me the car for a week and guess what he is true i got a verage of 21 with the car without ac in city. Even its break booster is better than zen. :P. i bought zen just 2 months beforehe got it and my car aint kool.

I had been driving it all around Kolkata city (congested places) with almost 70% AC on. Is it normal? I have heard that new cars generally give lesser mileage in the first 1000 to 2000 kms.

I think u should have gone for M800 if average is your prime concerned.

Do not compare Zen with Alto pleeeeease.

Hi,

I have been drving zen for past 1.5 years and frankly zens breaking and handling is not as goods as alto. Alto is more stable and have a better handling at high speeds due to the factor it is Aerodynamic.

So in my choice Alto is a better car. Dont know about the new one but the one my bro and cousin sis got are far better than Zen.

And everyone has its own choice. I was a zen freak till i drove alto.
