Thank you first for asking that Question sir !! I know it is wierd but some parts from Zen can be fitted into matiz with minor mods.The Matiz is an 800cc and a Spark is a 1000cc so everything changes.Matiz is the main father of Spark and Beat.All 3 Generations was designed by a Great Porsche Designer Dr.Ulrich Bez and Giorgetto Guiguaro.But their main point was they had to make everything from the old gen very different so it is next to impossible to install parts from the next gen.I am talking about ZEN and Maruti 800.These are the cars whose parts can be fitted into Matiz.But here in Chennai,My Mechanic can source almost all spare pars for Matiz 800,1.6 DOHC (TOO DAMN RARE !! )Nexia,1.5 SOHC Cielo AND he also says that Spares won't be a problem for another 3 years so I and some Matiz guyz have a reason to be happy !! I mean how can you ever compare a little car (Nano) with a BIG Small Car (Matiz !!).Anybody sat in Santro,Alto 800,Old Alto,Old ZEN,Maruti 800 can suddenly feel the spaciousness of Matiz espicially at the Rear seat and Legroom with Headroom.It had beautiful interiors compared to ZEN and Santro.It was an MPFI Engine with very good tuning and The 800cc was faster than the Santro's 1000cc and the ZEN 1000cc from 0-60 and 0-100
It was termed as one of the most spacious,Comfortable,Safest hatchbacks of India.The Matiz has passed the 60% Offset Test,Rod test,Barrier Test AND Rollover Test with 4 Stars which nobody knew in India back then from 1999 to 2003.It was a brilliant handler as it had Factory-fitted Strut braces,Lambda loops,Oxygen sensors.These things are not found even today in almost any Hatchbacks in India !! Our VW Polo kid thought that it was the first and only hatchback to pass the Safety,Guess what kid,there is a car who beat you in terms of safety way long long back !!.It's build quality was better than of Santro and ZEN and I remember that whenever a Matiz passes through,It is a sure headturner,Whereas both ZEN and Santro just passes without any Gala-gala !!! Its quite cheap to get and Anybody Can Restore The Beauty
Nobody has restored her so restoring her will make you the first ever in TAI
Matiz Restoration.You can see my Profile pic and compare with Nano !! Mysorians had there love for Matiz which is the only place where Matiz was quite succesful !!
All these points made me to fall in love with that Brilliant little car who miserably failed because of the Company and its Non-sense Gearbox for Pre 2001 models (Very Stiff and Vibrated like hell !!).It is never worth letting her go for such price (30k-60K).Here is an ad in OLX Banglore if Mr.SS80 is Seeing this.This is the Post 2001 model so it will have better gearing !!
