What would be a better choice between Spark and coming up Estilo(with new A Star Engine)?

By Amit on Aug 24, 2009


  • The A-Star engine is a 3 cylinder unit. The company claimed milage of 19kmpl is for the AStar, which is a smaller, lighter car than the Estilo. If the same engine is put in the Estilo, I don't think it will give a very good average. In any case there are numerous reports of people not getting the claimed average in the AStar. I get 14kmpl in Bangalore in my Spark with the AC (80%) on, so I think that's pretty good without sacrificing the extra space and comfort for passengers (including the rear passengers). Overall, go for the Spark.

  • Expert Hi,
    Spark will be a good selection for its cost effectiveness and reliability.

  • Hi Amit-Inherently maruti engines are known to be more reliable, efficient, low cost maintenance than their GM and ford counterparts. Therefore, while in the short term the spark may be a better option, in the long run the maruti will even out. The new estilo details are available on the maruti website - so you can review and see whehter you like it in the first place.
