Even our grand children are going to see the Esteem in the Indian markets. Most probably it will be the same body with new grille and lights!

Excuse me ; what car did you say is goin to get discontinued. The only car i have seen maruti discontinue from its evo is 800 old model and that crapy high dome van. correct me if I am wrong(I meant the shape though)
1 lakh esteem = one with old fashioned head lights first evo white clearance lens
2 lakh esteem = new small head lights with orange clerance lights
3+ lakh esteem = new grill and tail lights

till you get an esteem for 25 thosand they will be rollin from the factory

On the contrary, i've heard the Esteem will replace the Amby as official vehicle of our Netas' and other beureaucrats.. (I am not sure if i spelt that correctly).. So don't lose your sleep over it. By all means the Esteem is going to stay in the market for years to come..

I believe it is true. They've offered a stripped down non-ac version of the esteem to the govt at the cost of about 3.08 lacs which turns out to be cheaper than the Amby.
