Buying an Esteem doesn't make sense anymore. The price difference between esteem and Baleno is so little, after some reseach almost all potential esteem buyers end up with a Baleno. Besides, I can't remember anybody buying Esteem this year in Team-BHP. Besides Esteem also has to contend with Swift these days.

Esteem is gone and out. It's just an illusion of a big car and is worse in space and ride than most of the new B segmant cars.

Maruti would do well to replace the Esteem with another car and fast!
