What would be a better choice between Spark and coming up Estilo(with new A Star Engine)?
By Amit 08 August 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.

Soon, the Spark may come up with three cylinder Diesel version.

Expert`s comment:

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.
