Way to go... I too have one and have 28k on the ODO. Bought it for my Dad and was not much into cars as I was way too much obssessed with my RD350. However now I am driving it, thats another story.
Frankly I used to hate it but the after few instances I started loving it.

Didnt have much time lately to explain but do watch out as I would be soon writing up my experience with Estilo.

Though i don't own one I use it occasionally and the ride is good for the city. Those who drive broader Tyre cars, will hate it on Highway ride. Any how good and good Fe and comfort for the short drives.

Having used the Estilo(The older one) a lot, i can say the following.

  • Spacious
  • Powerful enough for the city
  • VFM
  • Good all round visibility
  • Performance takes a huge dip with the AC on
  • Very poor FE within the city, pretty good on the highways
  • Vague steering feel and Gearbox (For new drivers)
  • Very poor dynamics
  • Poor plastics/Rattles

Default Re: Zen Estilo - 10,000 km Report

Nice honest report. I have done a 50000 just now. When we started talking about selling this car after 4years, i find it hard to find a reason to sell it. right from daily commute to airport drops and pick ups, i never found it inefficient. Lot of space, peppy engine, fast to overtake? Both on highways and city. Never blundered on the long trips. Easy for elders to enter and exit. Elders find bench seat at back lot more comfy, my mom with back pain finds it too comfortable. overall it is a perfect family small car. Never let us down on the road, was not too expensive to maintain and there is always martui to service you. Will be selling this cute workhorse soon.??
