I want to buy a second car but I have a dilemma. I am not sure which car to choose, my budget is not more than 1.5 Lacs. I think Zen LX is more powerful than Alto LX.

I am evaluating a 2001 Zen Lx, price quoted is 1.10 Lacs, Kms done: 35k
& 2007 Alto LX, price quoted is 1.5 Lacs, Kms done: 55k

I don't understand why Zen has such a good demand in the market? Plz advice.

Maruti Suzuki Zen has power output of 58 BHP as against 45 of Alto. Also Interiors of Zen is comfortable and proven success record adds to great resale value.
To select one among the cars on offer, Alto would be better option for its newness, mileage and maintenance cost.

i had a 2005 zen. It was a epitome of maruti suzukis engineering. Zen engine more refined than alto and tends to hold the refinement for long. Take a test drive and find which engine is smoother at higher RPM.
A 35000 kms run zen engine is equal to 25000 kms run alto. Also the suspension of zen is better than alto. But check how good is the suspension of zen being offered to u as it is aged.
Zen has aluminium cast engine which is supposed to be cheaper and efficient.
Not sure whether 2001 zen has mpfi.
2007 alto is for sure mpfi. Mpfi's are reliable and consistent any day.
