Default Which one to Buy - Zen Estilo or Hyundai i10

Hello Guys,
If you have a choice of buying Zen Estilo or Hyundai i10?
Which one you will buy?
Zen Estilo : Cheaper than Hyundai i10
Hyundai i10: Pretty good interiors and better built.

Note: Mods if its an irrelevant thread. You are most welcome to close or delete it.

Many people are opting for Zen Estilo and now i10 is there in the mkt. So, what majority says? and WHY to buy Zen Estilo or i10?

Maruti Estilo

1) better efficiency, cheap parts.
2) Better after sales services
3) Maruti has 54% of market cap.... hope there a reason behind it.... Trust.

Default I as in i10

I10 wins hands down in looks.

If it was mere price or just a "latest model" things, I would have gone for Estillo. "Ugggggghhhhhhh......"" is all I have to say about that car. Did not even ask for a TD. We settled for WagonR more by default - a tried and tested car.

And yes, there is the novelty and "correctly, (but slightly over-) priced" feel about the i10.

LOL Backseat....

U didnt take a TD, tats ur problem. But I10 is not a bad car i say. Hyundai == expensive services.

Maruti == Nice after sales services.

What if u get a gem and dont have money to maintain it. Its worth nuthin.

BTW i feel estilo is having a bit handling problems. its not tat cool to use.

The i10 is a brand new product worldwide. Personally speaking, that itself is reason enough to go for the i10 over the Estilo which is a hand-me-down from retired dyes from Japan. The i10 has fresh design philosphies. I'm sure if the i10 was from Maruti no one would even have popped this question.

zen estilo interiors are pretty good but i guess that wood finish center strip does the trick for the i10...really loved that dash layout and design.....looks much better than dash board of cars a segment or 2 above....

i know maruti service is really good ( used to own a esteem sometime back ) - but i dont think hyundai service is lagging behind...

so on service i think its a tie..

only thing in favour of zen estilo would be the discounts i guess...

Car wise- no brainer, i10 ofcourse. Costs in mind would skip the estillo and go in for the wagon-r. Hyndai.lover you seriously thinking about estillo?

Just my opinion,

i10 is the better car, but is overpriced at the moment (IMO). Estilo makes a simple choice for itself, but its a matter or using the head over the heart.

At the moment, none of them get my vote.

fyi, Estilo is a 10 year old product in Japan. I10 is brandnew and class best interior, rock solid engine, great gearing and smoother ride and better resale value. aware of the discounts given for estilo(as its a slowest mover in suzuki stable) ? means, in long term, you loose a lot in 2nd hand market in terms of depreciation. go for i10, simply. hyundai service is also the best and on par or better when comparing with suzuki.

LOL Estilo is ten years old japan so i vote for it. Well hyundai i10 is a brand new car. wait for some monthes before u get it.

SGmuser : Hyundai will depreciate more then a maruti. we are comparing estilo and i10, hope you know that. Estilo is not cool enough to drive on highways. i dont know about i10.

Why would someone called hyundai.lover want to buy an old Suzuki car against a brand new hyundai car?

Does his nickname not help anyone understand his preferences?
