Spark looks MUCH better than ANY small car in the market, seeing people compare it with Estilo is [FONT=arial]ridiculous.[/FONT]

Lightbulb Spark Cost

How much does the spark with AC and body colored bumper cost in?

I live in Mumbai, if that helps.

Called up dealer today for a test drive.
Lady said that they don't yet have test vechical but she would let me test drive one of the vechical on display (translation: car which is going to be delivered to someone)
For delivery she said that if we book cr in this week delivery will be in first week of May. Thats quite F-A-S-T

Also for Matiz owners the dealership is ready to buy-back car.

I have not test driven the car neither seen the new spark. The only interaction i had with it was some 6 years ago. I was going in my Uncle's matiz and the first thing i noticed about the car when i sat inside was how safe it felt as if i have sucked in a fortress. Well that was some years ago, but the inside feel of the car left a very good memory in my head.

sohail,
u lucky one!
anyways, just a small drive isnt good enuf to write a review upon. however you can jot down your 'first impression' in simple words. include basics like
Offroad:
1) looks
2) look and feel of color
3) build quality
4) look and feel of interiors, upholstry
5) OE tyres, rims
onroad:
1) initial pick-up with a/c and without
2) brakes
3) gear shifts
4) NVH
others
1) check out the center console
2) any uncommon feature given in the car
3) ask abt service intervals

happy reeeeeeviewing!

Sohail, please check if the car is really worthy of all the praise showered by BSM (check this report: Top Story - Light my fire - Business Standard Motoring)
