Yup - weird looking rear. The car looks like a French design.

ya more like, when an indica hits the santro and the tall boy becomes Bend boy..! Sorry the Looks of this one won't appeal in the indian market, The Shape is weird and Disproportinate to the Indian Mass Market.

Its very early to say whether it would be welcomed in India or not. No one liked the old Zen rear when it was released. Didnt it become one of the best sellers in its class? How would describe the Swift's rear? Its on its way to be another hit.

Today, radical design seems to be the key to a good looking car.

True - the Indian buyer is no longer the frog in a well.

Ya but something that looks like a Santro Zip plus with Melting Rear..won't really hit the spot...! Swift Rear is good, No disputes to the Turtle..!

But then you never know, 2-3 Years down the line when this melting pot pouri rides into town-Might win more lovers of this design..!

Its the Splash which I remember reading somewhere. It seems there is definite plans for it to make it here and should definitely do well compared to others in the segment.
