Will the i10 have an AT? We are not keen on the boxy Wagon R or the outdated santro. Can we expect anything better soon? WHat about the splash?
Splash launch is delayed and dont think it will come soon,So the choice as of now is santro and WR AT.

I usually drive a stock Octy RS and wish it had a bit more power (but I dont want to upchip my car for fear of destroying it's reliability). I am surprised that after driving the Camry you did not feel the Santro was a bit under powered.

I really wish the Fabia was available with it's 1.6 liter Tpi + 6 speed auto box (same as in the EU).

Any further news on the i10 auto tranny launch? My cousin wants to buy one as soon as it comes out. And any idea on the likely price - will it be closer to the 6 lac mark?
I must add that I was pleasantly surprised by the cabin room in the i10.
