@ all those who are at the auto expo venue , did any of you hear anything from the Volkswagen stall about the so much romoured 2012 Polo with bluetooth headset and steering controls ? News were around from almost 6 months about this . Scoops of 1.5 L Diesel 94 BHp was also seen .
Any clue ?

Overall except for the Ford ecosport , Maruti concept compact SUV , Safari Storm and the RE thunderbird 500 , I cant see anything very exciting in this Auto Expo

Guys at the Expo, is there any new Diesel automatic, between the Verna and the Germans (Laura, Jetta, et al).
Thanks.

I am not hearing much about Mahindras! Am I missing something?
Just saw the next version THAR in the official review thread. Can someone confirm about the interiors? Is that the same as the current version or any upgrades there? I would love to see one in hardtop too. But I think I will have to wait!

Also VW, is there anything interesting with Polo? Like 1.5L Diesel.

Apart from Ecosport and Duster there is nothing exciting this time around. Any news about Mini Xylo? Is it being launched or what?

Default TVS @ AutoExpo 2012

TVS bikes at 2012 Auto Expo





TVS bikes at the 2012 Auto Expo include the RTR 250 FXm an off-roading machine which takes the center stage at the indian bike makerís exhibit. Apart from the exciting 250, there is also an electric scooter called QUBE on display. The company has also showcased a new technology which replaced CVT in scooters with a proper auto transmission saving more than 20 per cent fuel. The engine used in this technology showcase can also be used for bikes. Another highlight is a quad bike. A new 125 bike is also showcased along with the regular lineup of TVS vehicles

Seems no new Apache 180

But this engine can go into new Apache I guess! Love the 250cc competition more now!

But RTR160 gets some changes

The media days were yesterday and today only right? How come then no info yet about the Audi Q3, the CS versions of Dzire, Manza and the new BMW 3 series? Did these cars not make it to the expo finally?

Also any idea which car did member SidIndica spot a couple of days back in another thread?

^^ No manza CS , there was only Manza hybrid. Could not spot Dzire CS as well.

Well I went yesterday and today as well, came out in 2 hours today.
Not much happening there and whats with no theme displays.
Only suzuki and benz themes were exciting, rest were plain displays with congestion not much.
Felt bad for almost empty force stands, force one third row space is good although it looks like a cheap job at places (saw it for the first time)
BTW a big thumbs down from me to the new fortuner!
Harley stand was an eye candy.

Default Finally Auto Expo-ed!

Guys today I attended the auto expo and it was quite fun. But even today when general public was not allowed there was huge rush and I don't even dare to go there on weekends.

Please make sure you take care of your wallets and mobiles as there were few thefts reported even today when only special invitees were allowed.

I took around 400+ pictures, will share select photos with you guys in couple of hours. I have lots of photos of the new Safari, Fortuner.

Watch out for photos in couple of hours.

Wow, looks like a real good off road bike. And yes the same 250cc mill with some retuning for the street can go onto the RTR series if ever TVS gets around to doing it.

A quick look at www.marutiertiga.com yields nothing at all, however the who is to that domain points to a person who works for maruti with his maruti email id. So we can expect the website to be hopefully up and running soon.

Will anyone have any reliable info on the base pricing at least for this vehicle please?

Hi Guys,

I went to Auto Expo today, reached there at 11am and at that time the place was not too crowded. But by the time we decided to leave, the place was jam packed. God only know what will happen on weekends

Below are the highlights and low lights.

Lowlights:
- No Dzire CS
- No Verito CS
- No mini xylo
- No Xylo facelift
- Audi, Skoda and BMW stalls were jam packed, so didnt dare to go there.


- The maruti concept SUV looks good. I really hope this car comes to roads soon.

- For some reason Maruti has chosen to display these rather ugly looking MPV vehicles apprantly flown down from Japan. I dont see any reason why these vehicles should be displayed when they might never see the light of day here.

This one looks much more proportionate than SX4 sedan. Hope Maruti has a positive plan for it.

I was watching some news channel. Somebody from maruti said the launch would be somewhere in the first quarter of next year.
