The old Agila was the a rebadged Wagon R. The Estilo looks good. Nothing wrong with the old version too. It was quite popular with women. Are you sure the engine will be 1.1. The Ritz is 1.2 & A-Star is 1.0. They may use one of these.

This is not face-lifted Estilo, but a face-given Estilo. You can lift the face only if you have one. The absence of a prominent bonnet area is the main drawback of the Estilo, considering the design part.

Yet another thread where more than 50% of the posts just criticize the 'looks' of the Estilo.

Overall, it's a great scoop and good news that Estilo is coming out in a new facelifted avatar. I still believe it is a good car in that price bracket.

Wish there were more pics. This new styling cues look nice, but IMO, the old jelly bean shaped Zen was a stunner!

The headlamps look like they have been lifted off the Suzuki Cervo. Have a look. I hope the rear is like it as well.

It is a monovolume design just like Matiz and many mini vans. Trying to see a bonnet in this type of design/body style is like expecting a boot on a hatchback. They are very different type of body styles.
