Rumors have cropped up that Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, the king of small cars in India, is contemplating putting an end to the production of its ‘not so popular’ Maruti Suzuki Zen Estilo.
It is being said that the Zen Estilo is eating into the sales of its own cousin, the WagonR, and hence, it makes little sense for the Indian car maker giant to continue selling the Estilo.
It may be noted that the Maruti Estilo got a mild makeover recently but the cosmetic update has done little to increase the popularity of the hatchback. The Estilo is basically the Suzuki MRWagon and has pretty much nothing to do with very popular jelly bean Zen that dotted our roads for a lot of years. The Estilo has failed to establish itself properly in our car market and Maruti might axe its production as soon as in March this year.
Putting an end to the production of the Estilo would translate into increased production of other Maruti small cars and this in turn will mean that the waiting period for some of the Maruti cars might go down.
