Cars Q&A

I want to buy a new car. I have shortlisted Maruti Wagon R and Maruti Zen Estilo. Which one is good in terms of Milage, Resale Value and maintenance. This will be my First car and would not be selling it for atleast 5 years.

Wagon R, as you have mentioned Resale Value, fuel efficiency would be decent on both and you need to worry less since both are from Maruthi.
Please note Estilo is not as selling as its sibling, But if you like Estilo better than Wagon R, go ahead with it.

Answer by Benny 10 October 2010

With your requirements no doubt, go for Wagon R. Its a good selling model and more spacious than Zen Estilo, resale value is better than Zen Estilo. As Benny indicated, since its from Maruti family, you dont need to much worry on maintenance and the spare part costs. Happy driving..

Answer by Arul 10 October 2010

I have used a WagonR for the last 6 years.It gave me very satisfactory service.Recently,I replaced it with a new Zen Estillo and somehow I feel that the new Estillo is a better car in terms of fuel consumption as well as pickup with ac. on.The look is also more appealing.

WagonR, Zen Estilo & A-Star all the three uses same K-Series 1000CC engine. A-Start will be 20K extra, but interiror look is far better than even swift.

Just go for a test drive in all these three cars, than decide. The fuel effiency will be almost same in all the cars. Wagon-R will soon phase out in next 5 years I guess.

So re sale value for A-star will be more.

Think 1000 times before buying a new car, becuase used car values are dropping like anything. For example 3.5lac brand new car after 5-years you can sell for a maximum of 1.5lac.

Future is chaning buddy, now india is one of the largest car market in the world.

Man go for the hottest selling car .......FORD FIGO ....Go for it .Its superb and very value for money with cool features ,good service and low cost spares .. "FEEL THE DIFFERENCE"-gO for FORD

Answer by Pralhad 10 October 2010

Since both the cars share the same engine & outdated when compared to i10 or the figo. Check out for i 10 or figo or the swift which have better resale values

Answer by Manjunath 10 October 2010

From ur 2 choices, i suggest u to purchase Maruti Suzuki WagonR bcoz it gives u driving pleasure, good mileage, better performance, best resale value and low maintenance. Maruti Suzuki Zen Estilo has the same platform bt it also adds complaints with its name. so go for Maruti Suzuki WagonR Lxi or Vxi.
