it's almost end of the day. but where are the official updates and pics? Like many other fellow-bhpians, I am anxiously waiting for the official team-bhp pics and detailed report from auto-expo venue.Or am I in the wrong thread? is it being updated elsewhere by the mods in an exclusive new thread?

Fiat Avventura, which is based on Punto's platform, also launched at Auto Expo'14. Expected to be on sale around Mid-2014.

Notice the Abarth like alloys.

The regular updates should start flowing here and there would dedicated threads created for each manufacturer...

Kindly keep checking @ Forum --> BHP India --> Auto Expo 2014

As per the updates received earlier on this thread, we would start seeing updates from 2nd half, so I think your wait is almost over. In that sense, for us here on Team-BHP, that would be the start of the day

Thanks,

Few unveiling happened in last two days (Bolt, Zest, Xcent, Ford Sedan) and no official coverage. No updates/coverage from Auto Expo either.

Hope they come up with a detailed coverage report!

Super Awesome & Hot show at Auto expo. Superb features and killer looks, Hyundai's new SantaFe though seems expensive by 4-5 lacs. Had it been in Toyoyta Fortunner price bracket, it would have killed it.
Fiat Avventura - Hottest compact SUV. can't imagine Punto could be this killer. Price it right and Fiat may fly! VW Taigun - seems to be good competition if launched with decent pricing to take on Ford Ecosport. VW still unsure to launch it in India. Wake-up VW!
Honda Jazz - Launch it fast Honda but at fair price this time. Super hit!
Finally, Karl Slym's vision seems bang on for Tata. RIP Karl Slym ! Tata Bolt hatch is very nice effort from Tatas. Tata Zest is too good. Seems best among Dezire, Amaze, Xcent. Bag on!!! Upcoming Tata Nexon compact SUV concept is also very good looking. Exactly it should be. Buck up Tata.
Chevy people wake up- Chevy Beat facelift, no show, only minor changes. Chevy Adra mini-SUV concept seems to be Swift-ish rather than SUV-ish.
Hottest Bikes (not Superbikes)- Bajaj Pulsar 400SS and special mention to Hero Splendor Pro Classic - 100cc Cafe racer styled on Splendor.

Sir you have to wait for good things in life. Pls give them some time to pen their thoughts, process the photos and upload. And to add, they are doing all this in the midst of managing their own work as well ( being a moderator is not a permanent job )

Thanks for the info. That is too disappointing and shocking.

Given the fact that rumors of new SX4 (Ciaz) might get 1.6 MJD imported makes me more disappointed. I was actually looking at the new Linea with an expectation of the new engine bloc (I am not a techie and 1.3 was somewhat a mental block in deciding favourably for a Linea!!!). I am sure many people will definitely the feel bad at this decision of Fiat.

Volkswagen Taigun - Mini SUV concept

DC - TIA - 2-seater Hatchback - Rs. 16 Lac
It has a space frame chassis with carbon-composite bodywork and a roll-cage. The mid-engined rear-wheel driven Tia is powered by a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine and is less then 4-metres long so it qualifies under the lower excise duty slab for small cars. Peak power stands at 122 PS and peak torque is 190 Nm. The Tia gets a 4-speed automatic gearbox, McPherson struts up front and trailing arm suspension at the rear.
It measures a 2550mm x 1688mm x 1406mm (LxWxH) and has a wheelbase of 1620mm. Its compact dimensions give it a turning radius of 4 metres. It is priced at 18 lakh, which seems quite steep for a car with these specifications.

VW Tiguan is a premium SUV whereas VW Taigun is a mini-SUV concept.
