The Main Players

Maruti Suzuki

The stupidly-named Swift Windsong edition. Based on the regular 'V' trim, the Windsong edition is actually cheaper than the regular 'V' trim variants, yet comes with additional kit:
Report & Pics: The 2015 Mumbai International Motor Show-image00006.jpg

Exteriors of the Windsong edition include silly body graphics all around the car, and you also get parking sensors in the rear bumper:
Report & Pics: The 2015 Mumbai International Motor Show-image00007.jpg

PVC floor mats, ambient lighting and a Sony touchscreen music system:

Exactly. The representative at the stall mentioned that the kit costs an additional 21k. I remember reading that this edition is cheaper than the regular variants but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I had registered for the event, However the dates coincided with some official tour and had to give it a miss. But your pictures and review made up for my loss.

However could you get any details about the Ix25 or even the I20 crossover from the Hyundai guys. I was hoping some information / news would be available on the same at this event.

I made inquiries regarding the same and even about the Genesis. There were mainly dealer officials at the stall, so their knowledge is as limited as ours. One of the managers said most dealers get updates on the car 15 days before the launch/unveil.
