The fit and finish of the Ertiga looks good, do we have the specs of the car and the pricing.

This is thread can be a very useful jump-off to the "glory" details of manufacturer specific threads that have been started as part of this.

May I suggest that as the specific threads on a vehicle or manufacturer come on line, they are hyper-linked to this first list so that one can access the relevant thread from here as well?

Looking forward to more coverage! Any live streaming/ video clips? Might be useful as walk-arounds etc.

Someone post pictures of the Mahindra stall for those who are not visiting the Expo. I could only find 1 picture of the Thar Expedition in the Thar TD thread.

I have a feeling that the Innova sales will take a hit with all these new smaller SUVs coming in the market. I can see a lot of people going in for the Ertiga/Duster/Ecosport rather then the Innova unless you absolutely need that last seat. All of these will seat 5 in comfort even over long distance drives and will have ample storage space at the back. They will be easier to park, cost less and probably be more fun to drive.

Are you saying the duster will be launched later this month? I just called renault and they are tightlipped about the release. all they have to say is "Sir, we cannot reveal which month or what price it is getting launched at, but we can only tell you that it will be launched this year".

Surely they are waiting for the enthusiasm to die down after auto expo and then they might surely launch this thing.

AdrenalinJ, can you specify what you really meant by your opinion?

The Ertiga looks elegantly better than the innova. The spec looks good. Any information on the price tag?

Even the Strome should be in that list of probables.

Just had a look at the carblog website. The price for the base Diesel version rumoured to be around 9L seems to be a bit on the higher side. But the looks of the Ertiga is well put.

Oops, my post sounds misleading. This is what I have inferred from their auto-response on the website - the Duster models and pricing would be announced sometime later this month. Bookings have apparently already started and I have no idea when the first vehicles would be delivered. Actual the official launch i'm assuming should be before all this so I'm guessing that the duster would be unveiled officially by Renault sometime this month. I have no "Insider Info" on the same or anything, just what I expect.
