Wise decision mate ! You can never go wrong with the Esteem. It will give you miles and miles of trouble free driving and maintenance. All the best.

You must be really lucky to exchange the zen for the esteem without having to pay anything extra. Care to brief us on that ?

Btw, the picture you have attached doesn't look to me like an Esteem (looks like an engineering drawing to me)

Please check the same.

What are Esteem rates in Bangalore now, Bullfrog?
Congrats, the Esteem is a great car anyways! Cheaper than most of the hatchbacks to maintain.

Esteems are available (from owners) for good price now in Bangalore. Reasonable condition ones run about 30-40K and 3-4 years old available in range of 2.4 to 2.8 L depending on version (LXi or VXi)

Was able to sell my Zen for the same price of buying the Esteem. So, that makes it a flat exchange, innit

Nice pic there ! She would have been a stunner had she been a VXi in the same colour.

Going by the deal, looks like your Zen got a better resale value (more so being one year older than the esteem). Does this mean that the Zen has a better resale value than the Esteem overall ?
