My choice beteen the cars mentioned by you would be Wagon R. I own both Alto and Wagonr, beleive me wagonr will take ghats more easily when compared to Alto. However you can also have a look at Santro. this has a little more low end torque and will be fun to drive in ghats.

i think estilo would be a better option considering the new k series engine in it.

Hi, this is Devendra.
I would suggest you to go for Estilo, Not just for its technical specifications but i have used it at different ghats and have traveled comfortably.

Answer by Devendra 02 February 2010

The Alto would give you atleast 20 % higher fuel efficiency than the Wagon R. Both - Alto and Wagon R are scheduled for a model change after April 2010 when the BS IV norms set in. This will affect the re-sale value of the car too. You could wait till the new models come in. Alternatively you can look at the Estillo as others have suggested, or check out the A star. It's a good car in all aspects except rear leg room. Decent power, good fuel efficiency, looks, but pathetic leg room (though it's more than the Alto). If you can compromise on rear leg room, it can be considered

Alto gives 13kms per liter in city drive with a/c and in highway you get 15 to 16kms per liter with a/c, speed at 90 to 100kms.
Wagon R may give little less than alto but it is a very good car.You can also do long journey on wagon R.

If you are not a Maruti Suzuki Loyalist, Check from Chevrolette SPARK/ BEAT, dependingon the budget.

Answer by Rakesh 02 February 2010

Hi, i am proud owner of estilo. wagon r, estilo and alto, all are very good cars, but considering your situation of hilly area you should go for alto. it is flat car with less height. estilo and wagon r is having great height, you may get problem during turning.averageis almost same of wagon r and estilo. nowadays estilo comes with k series engine, very good engine and with good milage. but go for alto.

with regards,

The WagonR would be a good choice.I have been using one for the last five years.Maintenance expenses are negligible.Gives reliable service.I have frequently used the car in the hills of North East India.It performs well in the hilly areas.

Answer by Robin 02 February 2010
Expert`s comment:

In the ghat sections and hilly areas as mentioned, Zen Estillo would make a better option for its upgraded engine and its performance, resale value.Alto gives mileage of 18KMPL as against 16 of WagonR.
