No doubt that the i10 is a far better car than Estilo. If you ask me to pick one as a gift to me, I will pick i10. But if I got to buy one, then it is going to be Estilo (in fact it was estilo) because it suits me better for the money it asks. Of course opinions differ and people bring in all the "earlier it was in Japan" discussions. Honestly with the current discounts Estilo is definitely a better VFM. But then i10 was never meant to be a VFM product. Another point to be noted is Spark as someone pointed out may edge out estilo's price advantage and may be a better choice compared to both Estilo and i10. I personally look it off my list for fear of GM's A.S.S especially in bangalore (but that is just me)

My point was Suzuki is launching products from its own stable which have nothing to do with Maruti.....hence when we talk about their cars, we should not say Maruti cars....rather, they should be spoken of as Suzuki cars.

Estilo looks **** to me. I was totally disappointed when I first looked at the car, though the pics in the ads were fabulous. From the rear, I get a feeling that it is a female trying to pull her pettycoat down to cover her butt.
The i10 looks more macho, not only in the ads, but also in reality.
Anways, looks are subjective.

To be frank I did not like the Estilo when I first saw it in a website. But later when I saw in on the road it looked better. Only much later I realized that the car comes with optional fittings (I forgot the name) that makes it look ugly. Another point is I feel that Estilo in colors other than beige (mine is beige) doesn't look good to me (personal opinion). So Estilo is definitely not a head turner, but not bad either. It is not very masculine, accepted but then I was never a fan of the macho Swift's rear. So leave the looks department, it is so very personal.

As other people have already mentioned in the forum, there is very less scope in comparing the i10 and Estilo.
i10 is a good and modern car. The interior design is very good and looks different from other cars in this segment. But the models above Era are a bit overpriced.
The design of Estilo is poor. It lacks drive quality and stability. The interior quality is also not that good. So spending a little more money and buying the i10 would be a better choice

It seems i10 is selling like a hot cake. Today itself i had seen total of 7 hyundai i10 on the road. 3 alone on express way and 4 in delhi (way back to home).
Strange to see this amount after few days of launch.

Yesterday around 3
day before yesterday 4

Handling, Gear shifting and suspension are very good in i10. It is a brand new model Launched first in India. We already have a santro for 4 years now. Haven't spent much on it. Hyundai is really good yaar! I am taking an i10 era in Jan '08. "I JUST LOVE THAT CAR!"

i think i10 is anytime better option and since it is the latest offering from Hyundai, also Estilo is already an Old model and comparing both of them overall i10 goes for a spin
