Review of Ashok Leyland Stile

Overview

 The Ashok Leyland Stile, the first attempt from the Indian CV major at the passenger car segment, is essentially a rebadged version of the Nissan Evalia, targeted at the commercial operators.

With various cost cutting measures, Ashok Leyland has been able to position the Stile considerably lower than the Evalia, making it a sensible people carrier.

Manufactured alongside its Japanese cousin at Renault-Nissan's Orgadam factor near Chennai, the Stile is benefited by the customer feedback and learning from the Evalia. Certain features like bucket seats, position of AC vents, middle row window types have been changed to improve the overall appeal. These changes eventually filtered down to the updated Evalia.

The Stile retains most of the design elements of the Evalia but sports a different front fascia which is defined by larger headlamps and grille, and a new bumper. When viewed from side, you would be hard pressed to note the difference between the two MPVs. The rear too is same as the Evalia save for the missing reflector elements on the tailgate. The Overall design is pretty bland and its apparent that priority is given to interior space and practicality.

Speaking of the interior space, there is a lot on offer. The Stile is available in both 7- and 8-seat configurations. You can opt for bucket or bench seats for the middle row. The dashboard design is also borrowed from Evalia but the color theme is different and the overall quality seems to be a few notches down.

Under hood lies Ashok Leyland's version of the Renault K9k 1.5-lire diesel engine called the Diet. The oil burner develops only 76 PS of power and 185 Nm of torque which, on paper, doesn't look sufficient to propel a 7-seat people carrier of this size but in real world, things are much better.

The Ashok Leyland Stile is too basic to be used as a private transport but when it comes to commercial applications like IT shuttles, Taxi and Tour operators, the space, comfort, efficiency and pricing of the MPV makes it a safe and sensible choice.

Interior

 The Stile offers good leg room and numerous cubby holes for passengers of all the three rows. The seats are comfortable but the third row is short of thigh support. Large window areas give the cabin an airy feel.

The high-end variant comes with rear AC vents which are located in between the front seats. The sliding door make ingress and egress to the middle and third row easy. The sliding type windows for the sliding doors are more useful that the butterfly type ones of the Evalia.

The driver seat offers good visibility of the road and dash mounted gear-lever makes way for sound ergonomics.

The boot space is almost non-existent with the third row seats in place but fold them and you'll get decent real estate to stow your luggage.

  • What we like

     The cabin is spacious and airy.  The front and middle row seats are comfortable.

  • What we dislike

     The third row seats lack thigh support and is not ideal for full sized adults for long journeys.

Exterior

 As mentioned, the Stile derives most of its design elements from the Evalia. One can easily mistake it for Evalia when viewed from side or rear. The front however is given a new identity, thanks to larger headlamps, horizontal slated grills and a new bumper with bold character lines.

The sheet metal on the sides are kept flat for cost reasons. This, combined with the generous proportions gives the MPV a disproportionate appearance. The rear fascia which is devoid of much attention from the designers (for cost reasons) also has some amount of blandness to it.

  • What we like

     Optional alloy wheels spruce up the otherwise mundane exteriors

  • What we dislike

     The overall appearance of the MPV tells you that its built to a cost

Mileage Running Cost

 The 1.5-litre K9k diesel motor is renowned  for its outstanding fuel economy in all of its previously known states of tune. The 76 PS avatar is no different as it offers an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 19.5 kpl which is excellent for an MPV this big.

  • What we like

     Best in class ARAI certified fuel economy
