I should think not..that information has come to me from "the horses mouth" so to speak. I hope they do it fast though. AFAIK this is a good 6-8 months away.

The build quality being pretty bad, a few things ought to be tweaked. Using better plastics & using an engine like the Baleno/OHC would catapult the sales of this convertible. Would make sense in all aspects- style,performance etc.

That is indeed a good Idea. Now that the Baleno is dead, someone can benefit from its phased out but great G16B engine.

Would be really nice to a variety of vehicles on the roads in India. We have SUVs/MUVs/sedans/station wagons.. with pick-up trucks hitting the market,it'll be more or less complete with the San Storm making a strong entry..
Improve the existing vehicle..and it'll take the India auto market by 'storm'..

But I will prefer the San "streak" to the "storm", given Indian weather, its a perfect compromise of Fun vs Functionality.

Isn't there any auto company that would be able to take over the establishment,and do the needful in order to get a revamped San Storm on the roads? Obviosuly there's a lot of R&D work that's needed to bring about the changes,but I wish there's a start to it. Pretty sure if the car is brought out with a chunk of goodies,it'll sell like hot cakes. People have the money to spend, and whats better than getting a relatively affordable sports car/convertible.

This storm was the cause of Tsunami

Vijay Malaya was keen on this car but then he also knew he had to chaneg everything in the car except well the body type,

Oh yeah this car is coming with the Logan 1.6 engine.

When will the big guns come out with their convertibles?
I think its high time, we get an good, affordable convertible in India.
IMO only Tata (and/or Marutis may be) can do that, the affordable part, that is
