Ertiga looks really good for a compact MUV and with the choice of both petrol and diesel engines, it is going to be a runaway success. Kudos to Maruti for coming out with a great product. It looks nice and compact and is going to bne useful in the city as well as highway.

A doubt - sorry if I missed it earlier.

Is Renault Pulse = Nissan Micra?

I have no "Insider Info" on the same or anything, just what I expect.
Well atleast we will come to know the pricing. but i am surprised how bookings have begun even before someone can see the car a.la maruti. Everyone is resorting to this tactic now to earn interest out of booking amounts if not anything else!

Lets really hope renault stays spot on in the pricing details. atleast they either have the customer, or not. unlike a few others who arent even saying when their showcases are in reality coming to town.

Storme will not be a new launch. Its just a facelifted Safari and I expect it do similar numbers as the current generation Safari.

Looks like BMW has pulled off the covers on the MINI and the M5. Here's a link

Well, it is like this...if you want the Renault badge on your Micra, go for the Pulse. If you want the Nissan badge on your Pulse, go for the Micra.

I for one absolutely don't like the looks of Ertiga, Maruti seems hell bent on retaining that wierd Swift's front facade for everything they do.

Looks have never hurt Maruti sales. Why should they care?

Any idea about the specs or the class it is competing? Is it in 10L range or 20L range?

Thank you once again.

One can find enough space as a B or B+ hatch when the 3rd row is up it seems.

Now awaiting the price bifurcation trim wise. Any news about the official commercial launch if any?
