Maruti Zen Estilo is getting revamped for the Indian audience

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. is one of the top small car makers in India.

Maruti Zen Estilo is one of the popular sub-compact cars produced by the company. If you are one of those people who are looking for a small family car, then the Maruti Suzuki Zen Estilo is the ideal car for you. It is small, comfortable and comes with features that not only fulfill your needs but also provide great comfort.

Maruti Zen Estilo is the upgraded version of Maruti Zen which was launched in 1993. Maruti Zen has been promoted by the company for more than fifteen years. The word “Estilo” is Spanish. It means style. Though compact, Estilo is quite spacious. Maruti Zen Estilo was first unveiled on December 6, 2006 at Gala fashion show. In 2008, a sports edition of the car was released. Though dubbed as sports edition, there were no major upgrades. It was more of a facelift to revive the sliding car sales.

The Maruti Zen Estilo is a mixture of Suzuki MR Wagon and Wagon R. It has got MR Wagon’s shape and Wagon R’s engine. The car has a monoform design which has been further modified in several steps. The car design followed the “tall boy philosophy.” In addition, to create more leg space in the front, the engine space has been decreased but it did not change the car’s performance. Simple yet elegant, the Maruti Zen Estilo is a car that will make your city driving a pleasant experience.

There is another great news for Maruti Zen Estilo buyers. Maruti Suzuki is going to revamp all its cars including the Zen Estilo. Maruti is going to fit its 1.5 litre K-series engine in the car.

If offers high mileage at lower fuel consumption. The 1.1 liter K-series engine produces around 67 bhp.
