Default at Rs. 2.63 lakh, what would you buy? zen estilo or alto?

again, zen is available at a discounted price of rs 2.63 lakh (including discounts and exchange bonus) for the estilo LX model.

dos the car deserve to succeed now? or will people still go on for alto?

also, getz prices have come down by 30,000-40,000 for petrol varents.

the base 1.1 getz GLE now comes at 3,59,000 ex-delhi.

For that price, go for Zen, no need to think even for alto.

Alto is a smaller car with smaller engine.

Estillo, at this price its sure to go for it.IMO the only drawback of estillo is its egg shaped design, but at this price i will certainly take it.

At this price, Estilo is good. This is more so if you are tall and you have elderly people traveling. The ingress and egress is much better for the Estilo than Alto. But in terms of driving comfort, I will take an Alto, hands down.

(FYI: I own an Alto and my dad has a Estilo)

No brainer this.
Estilo it should be, unless you plan to mod the Alto with 1.1 engine, FFE, K&N and take it on the track.

both will get replaced over time i guess.. alto with astar
estillo/wagor-r with splash.

it depends on the need. more room space go for estillo.. more mileage go for alto !!

look wise i personally like the alto :-)

if priority is a city car then go for ALto (the one with power steering). I cant imagine life without PS now! I once drove my friend's Alto Lx (this one doesnot have PS) and it was really uncomfortable.
However if priority is a car for frequent weekend drives outside then Estilo is better (more powerful/resposive engine).

IMO is a call between comfort and power

I'd choose the Alto still. Estilo is too feminine.

You should be going for an ESTILO, it gives you more VFM as compared to the Alto.

Bigger engine and a much bigger cabin space as compared to the Alto.

Why not check Wagon R. You may get good deals on it if there is a confusion on Estilo Alto

Estilo it should be. I sort of like Zen Estilo design - silver one looks good, and it is far more spacious than Alto.

Estilo is spacious compared to Alto and doesn't feel too bad with AC turned on. So Estilo - way to go.
