Cars Q&A

Dear Friends, I wish to buy a car. There are two options, both the car is in excellent condition. Option a : Maruti Zen Vxi (type 2) 2004 model Option b : Zen Estilo Lxi 2007 model. Both the cars comes with comprehensive insurance and from Mumbai. Can you please advice which one would be an ideal choice. Also suggest estimated prices for both the models. Thanks Sid.

Among the two Zen Estillo will be a better option .Though costlier than Zen of 2004 it does have good resale value and longer life.Youcanbuy Estillo for 2.4 lac max and Zen Vxi of 2003 for 1.75Lac Max.

Depends firstly on your budget.
But i would prefer if you really wana enjoy the car rather than looking at what you want get for resale go for a 2004 model.
Enjoy the period when you have it instead when you not gonna have it ?? your call

isuggest u to buy2004 four model as it is a steady car and the approx cost would be 1.60 L .

Answer by Parush 07 July 2009

I would prefer Zen Vxi because its wheel base width is comparatively higher and no doubt it is sterdy than Estilo. The cost would be about 1.65-1.8 depend on the condition.

Hi Sid
If you love to drive old ZEN vxi has no comparison in that segment
If you are taking for casual uses go for ZEN estilo
Belive me the old ZEN was a really amezing product from maruti. don't know y they changed to estilo

Answer by GAGAN 07 July 2009

my suggestion is old zen vxi if its condition is good because my relation with old zen last 10 year . and old zen is for better then new zen estilo because old zen give better road balance accelant judgement and more thats why my opinion is old zen

Answer by Gaurav 07 July 2009

i would personally suggest the zen 2004 model,personally i feel that it looks better than the estilo.also the depeeciation on the estilo would be higher in the future and if the condition of the 2004 zen is good then without second thoughts go for it.

Hi, Sid

I prefer Zen 2004 model its steable and one of the best in that segment and price 1.70 to 1.85

Answer by Asif 07 July 2009

I am using Zen Lxi(2004 model)since 2004 Feb. My advice is that if you are a tall person, getting in and out will be little difficult. The mileage and maintenance is afforable for ordinary people. Without A/C I am getting 15-20 Kms/Ltr and with A/C 10-15 Kms/Ltr. depends on your driving. Since the Zen Estilo is a boxy type and getting eough leg space
I prefer Estilo. If you are tall person (pls check the performance before you buy).

I wish to sell my Zen Vxi 2004 model. Fully loaded with music system. 33000 kilometres only. MH-02 passing.
Price 2 lacs. Interested parties please call on 9324891444

Answer by Mushir 07 July 2009

Always go for 2004 Zen VXI as it is the best small car till date from Maruti. Estilo has different looks, better for taller people (>5'8''), lesser shoulder room, lesser wheel base and unstable at higher speed(>100kmph) than old zen. For resale value, zen has unique choice for all, priced bet 1.6-1.8L.
