Maruti Suzuki recently launched the A-Star Aktiv, which is a lame attempt by the company. Instead, the company should have launched the interesting limited edition variant of the Zen Estilo hatchback which it showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo. Called the Zen Estilo Dreamliner, it is not expected to go on sale, but it sure did give this slightly boring tall boy a very eye catching cosmetic oomph. The Dreamliner has cosmetic upgrades on the outside as well as inside.
The exterior of the Estilo Dreamliner gets lots of interesting decals, blue wave-like ones on the sides as well as grey ones surrounding the headlamps giving them a bit more character. There is a body kit and the front and rear bumpers are re-styled and are much bigger. The front bumper boasts of a larger air intake grille with twin fog lamps on each side. The front grille too is re-styled giving the front of the car a tad more aggressive appearance. The wheels get special styling treatment too with 13-inch white multi-spoke alloy wheels.
On the inside, the Estilo Dreamliner gets a real uplift. The interior is very luxurious and bathed with cream colored materials. The seats are covered with cream leather with black lining and ‘Dreamliner’ written on every seat. The dashboard, steering wheel and the door panels too are finished in cream colored plastics with leather inserts in the door panels, on the steering wheel as well as the gear lever. The dashboard comes with a double-din MP3-DVD player with a large screen. The head rest of the front seats have special LCD screens for rear seat passengers.
All these luxury features almost give the Estilo a savvy private – jet like feel. Though this car will not reach customers, Maruti Suzuki gave us an insight of what they could provide if they were to build a luxury car or a special luxury edition and it does seem quite tempting.
