Humm... They put you off with Zen Estilo this time. No issues, unknowingly they did the right thing for you. How? I mean any car you sit in, ultimately you ignite, slot in gears, release clutch & then obviously slotting gears again and again, than what's the difference of making different cars in the world? If you are getting a different car each time, it's somehow assisting your skills/automotive consiousness more & more. Why? You get to know how to adjust with that additional length of a sedan & how a hatch back tends to zip through easily. Doesn't hatchback concept look totally absurd, everything should be a sedan with a boot added. What hatchback design is upto? Well the concept makes complete sense & try to know it when you are driving a sedan & hatchback. Not only this, using different cars is giving different sitting combinations/outside views/gear boxes/throttle behaviour/brakes strength weaknesses vice versa. So it's not always about having fun mate. Try to imagine yourself as an auto journalist & reviewing a particular vehicle. Settle down with your likes/dislikes & help yourself with your reference points/scale that you can compare to.That doesn't mean you ignore everyone else suggestions though. The funniest fact in auto-industry is how one can experience "best" till he goes through the "worst"? Do i make sense here? I would even suggest you to take an 800/Omni/Sumo Victa/Tata-407/ambassador or what ever hell you get there to experience something different. Just don't lust for that Diesel fun factor. You purpose there is to mentor yourself & don't stop talking to yourself when you are driving. 1. Try to know how ABC vehicle suspension behaves in undulations 2. Check it's stopping power in a sane way (remember you are still learning so not adventures pls) 3. Does it encourage any sharp turning & how is the sterring response/feedback & balance of the vehilce (body roll)? 4. how does it's engine sounds like (ugly/stressed/easy) whenever you demand more from the vehicle 5. What's your take on it's clutch/gear changes? 6. What are it's strong points/limitations? I can keep on typing the whole day but i think you got my point. Try to have different vehicle during your class instead of that sweet. You have to taste sour/bitter/tartaric before you taste some thing that's known as sweet & delicious! Remember you are just not after that driving license, you are an auto enhusiast with loads & loads of passion. I won't mind if you find out somwthing better than my personal favorite, i can promise on that. Best of luck & yes your observation on Zen estilo vs esteem is Bingo! I won't hold your credit where it's due. Keep up the good work:drinks!
