^ Well the Swifts too are good so best car from Maruti stable can be a debate(considering Swift warmed up people to premium hatches),
but my friend had the 1.1 with out power steering but has internal adjustment mirrors etc(from the Zen),i guess it was a called VX,
the reason i liked it more than the Zen, was the ground clearance,along with better comfort & tolerance to hammering.
It was the perfect sleeper car ,no one would suspect you had more power under the hood even on highway runs.
I totally loved the car(if only two people are travelling) for its bursts of power & small size through traffic which was way less around 2004 than it is now 9 years later
