I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I really like the Palette and the Solio. The sliding doors, lots of legroom! Love the console mounted gear lever! I like the overall practical designs and er..., the looks too to be frank

The MR Wagon is practical, cute and looks retro on the outside and inside. That flat dashboard is simple and unique.

Maruti in Autoexpo 2012 appears a damp squib. No attractive cars on show except the Ertiga. Rest are all different looking boxes. Have they taken their hands off the steering wheel and if so the competition would simply drive past.They could have at least kept a M800 with some gizmos as a memorabilia.

Interesting that the new Dzire was not showcased at the Auto Expo. A lost opportunity maybe!

I feel maruti should launch the MR wagon. It would be a good alternatives to the lower segment hatches.

That was hilarious On a serious note I'm guessing the boxy shaped variants would be a big hit with our masses. I'm not too sure on the sliding doors concept here but I guess they could release cars with an option to choose sliding doors instead.
