*Newbie question*

I notice some threads talking about safest hatchbacks, about indica/go being crash tested, palio being like a tank yada yada.... but does anyone have any videos/pics of the indian versions being crash tested?

Being the cynic I am, I'm sure the european export/original models would anyday be better made than what we get in India (or that's just my belief methinks).

A cross between VW Beetle and Fiat 500.
A perfect replacement for spark.

this is CHERY S1, a model of the chinese automaker called chery.

this will replace the QQ, which is a copy of old spark/ matiz.
PICTURED: EXISTING QQ, itself looking like fishmouth frog.

Its a copy of chevy and there is no support from GM whatsoever, actually GM filed a lawsuit or something, and in front of press the GM engineer actually fitted the spark/matiz door to this to prove that its an exact copy.

Looks like a character from the CARS movie. I almost expected a tongue to come out of the "mouth"

How many Indians will be comfortable enough in buying a Made in China 'Duplicates'. I remember there is something like this from Japan also, which mimics the Rolls Royce.
