  • Asif,
    I would suggest you to set a budget of around 1.5 lks to 2 lks which will help you gt a relatively less older esteem.
    esteem on the mantainence front is a very reasonable pick.

  • Maruti is known for low mintainance. If you can actually own an esteem diesel then it is gonna be great as it has the best of milage and minimum maintainance in diesel cars is required.

  • I would advice don't go for an Esteem. Compared to Zen, you'll find that it is not at all fuel efficient. The average is very less and to the top of it, Maruti has stopped producing Esteem, so getting spare parts for a second hand Esteem will be real pain. Go for a Santro instead.

  • Expert Hi,
    The better option would be to go for a used Esteem Petrol.You can get fair conditionied one in 1 lac.
