Default Re: 2012 Auto Expo - Over 60 Vehicles To Be Launched

Don't really know about the other vehicles, bit I for one am praying that TATA gets over whatever it is up to and just lifts the curtains from the Merlin (provided they haven't put curtains permanently on it!).

I'm really kicked about the following cars:

- Maruti Dzire CS (sub-4 meter version)
- Mini Xylo (sub-4 meter version)
- High probability of the new-gen Honda Civic being present
- Hyundai i45
- Maruti Ertiga
- Fortuner Automatic
- Diesel Sunny
- Next-Gen Toyota Camry

60 car launches in 5 days, which means 12 cars per day average. Thats gonna be one heck of an event. Media coverage is going to be huge. Is Team-BHP also planning to cover the 5 day event?
Looking forward to Audi A3 launch. Any idea on pricing?

No Peugeot? I thought they would display the cars they are testing right now.

Or have they confirmed that they will not participate?

Please add the 2012 Pulsar to the list
This will be one the most awaited launches and looking at the pictures available,they surely would sell like hot samosas.

Looks more like a wishlist to me.
For example, as much as I'm eagerly awaiting the launch of the new Ecosport, I don't think India will be where Ford chooses to unveil it. Detroit seems more plausible.

Anyway, the mini-suv slot is where much of action will be in the coming years, with many Indians "outgrowing" hatches, but not being able to afford the real thing. It's the next best thing.

The new Tata Safari(Merlin) and the Manza CS/Indica eV2 XL(caddy version)
The Mini Xylo which am looking forward to the most.
The Force van basd on the Merc Viano and most importantly hope the next gen Trax and Traveller are also unveiled.
Also hope the Maruti SUV concept is based on the Jimny platform than the Ertiga one.

Isn't TATA expected to showcase the Bosch - Diesel Nanao?
And the upgraded Chevy Cruze and Captiva.

Add to this list the new maruti 800. That should also be a big draw. Maybe the Manza CS as well

I'm eagarly looking forward to the new MPV from Maruti. I guess it should be a super hit provided rightly priced.

I have travelled in an Innova a copule times. I did not find the 3rd row as comfortable as I thought. I stand 6 feet tall and the leg room was not decent enough for me to feel comfortable. I'm wondering how and where this MPV from Maruti (considerer to be smaller than Innovo - correct me if I'm wrong) stand in terms of 3rd rwo comfort comparing to the Innova.

BMW is currently setting up new dealerships and the first 2 will come up in Delhi and Mumbai. By end of 2012, Pune, Chandigarh, Chennai and Bangalore will also see dealerships.

The company hopes to lure enthusiasts with high-end performance versions and pricing will be somewhere around the X1 in the Rs 25-35 lakh range. The MINI will make it in India as CBUs (completely-built units).

I am postponing my purchase (though I have paid advance for swift zdi) because of this Auto Expo. Quite interesting to see Maruti releasing a new SUV. Counting days, this is supposed to be biggest ever in Asia, bring it on!

Maruti releasing SUV? That's rather showcasing the concept and the SUV will be launched only in a couple of years. Probably the launch we will have soon from maruti is Ertiga, and may be the Dzire CS as well.
