Hey dude !
I too have seen the same one a few days back, but the same car first time i ever saw was in the showroom, under the hood its completely stock !!
Other than that i have seen only a few on road, i like the car, but the interiors are very much the same like the optra: Same gear knobs, speedometer, inner door handels, etc... !!

If GM wants the car to sell, it should give it a kick-a** engine and position it alongside a Accord coupe etc.

Saw a Chevy SRV on the DND. It was dark blue in colour and I must say that the car has some presence. But I guess the car is conspicuous by its absence on Indian roads. It is neither a hot hatch like the Palio 1.6 nor it seems to be a roadster. GM got this one wrong but still can make amends as they did with the Optra. A sportier tuning of the same 1.6 engine and shaving-off atleast 2 lakhs off the price tag will help. But don't know if it will still sell. Could be possible that this car is meant for market presence as a sports hatch car for GM and they might just stop selling it soon or maybe start exporting.

I've seen a blue SRV here in trivandrum three days in a row on my way to college . This car is a real goodlooker but the prices are too astronomical.

Saw one last week in Dark Red in Delhi. It looks great. Price could be one factor which is keeping the sales down but one of my friends test drove an SRV in Mumbai and he is a fan ever since.

haven't seen any of them except the demo car . otherwise spotting a civic is more likely than spotting an SRV
