Hi The new Estilo does not come with LPG kit, its only Wagon-R which is having this option and its really gud. I wud suggest you to go for it if u r looking any LPG version otherwise estilo is also very gud as its with K series engine.

Answer by Jitendra 10 October 2009

Go with the new estilo..... its a very good car. best mileage in its category

Answer by Dheeraj 10 October 2009

If you wanna comfort, i suppose Hyundai i10 is the best in amongst WagonR, Santro, Estilo. As for as economy is concerned, If you can wait, Maruti is soon launching CNG compatibe cars.

Any person whose usage is more than 50 KMS per day should preferably select diesel vehicle.
Pl. note modern diesels are powerful, efficient and will pay back extra cost within 2 years provided that you drive more than 50 kms per day.

I suggest you go for used Esteem. Trust me its heaven. You should try a 2005 to 2008 model. You will never have problems for next 5 to 8 yrs. Fuel Efficient, Comfort, Best for Long drives, Best in traffic, good pick up, low maintenance. Good room, good seating, good performance, easy to use

If your daily travel is about 40km then you should go for diesel cars.

But if you wish petrol version cars, then go with i10. It's surely fullfil all your needs. If you like CNG version then you may look over Santro( for space) or go with SPARK.

Among all I personally suggest you GO with 1 or 2 year old Maruti ESTEEM. It will take care you.

Good Luck.

If you wanna go for a petrol car then go for Santro, you can also test drive the new estilo powered with the latest tech K series engine. And if you drive more that 15 Kms per day then you must go for Lpg variant Wagon R as it is the best in the factory fitted segment cars with best mileage and performance and above all low maintenance cost.

Wait for a couple of months, Santro, i10, Spark all are going to come out with 3 cylinder 1.1 Diesel engines. They are economical to you
