I see just plain curves; nothing quite to swoon the heart and other senses. But I must admit those tyres are well curved.

Maybe "creases" would be a better way of describing them I didn't like them either.

Check out these pictures taken few months back from Dubai.

Managed a better quality pic of the India-spec interior today.



Manages to look cute and cuddly from almost every angle!

SPARK looks really good from rear. The ESTILO s rear is uninspiring and SANTROs rear has begun to show its age. Now, it all depends on the pricing of the SPARK, and if GM does it right , than it has got a winner on its hands.

Very posh looking interiors. I say GM have a confirmed winner on their hands, meritoriously considering. Other realworld issues like service network and pricing are the 2 very real sceptres hanging over GM's sensitive parts.

It will be the first indian car (of this generation) with central instruments. Majority dont seem to like them but I love having nothing in front of the steering.

I sooooo want it to be a rev counter

Never driven a car with center mounted console. Does it make any difference?
