Yeah GTO .. I see what you mean. I got to see the build quality on the 1.9 INVEX we ripped from Fort Point itself. Its time for the Lancer to go or atleast get the new model from the international market.

Cheers

Hey the Tata Indica'successor is gonna come out in 2007. Well better late than never.

"Though there will be a family resemblance to the Indica, the car will look different and will be bigger. The wheel base will be bigger, the seating will be more spacious and the three-box version of the car will have more changes in it than the Indigo has compared to the Indica," Mr Tata said.

Add scorpio to the list. Ok the mighty muscular scorpio does have a fresh and mean look in the front, but the rear is the same since 2007.

What I am about to say applies to all automobiles, at least those on view in India at the moment, in my opinion.

I have yet to see an automobile that offers complete all round visibility like, say, the visibility that the pilot of a fighter jet has.

Such a design (without the metallic pillars) would offer great safety and convenience, due to elimination of blind spots for the driver.

Transparent pillars, maybe?

Wagon-R is my choice. Though its selling like hot cakes, I think its a little too tall. When going over bumps it feels like riding an elephant. Also the right side A pillar near the drivers seat blocks the view of the road which is at 90 degrees.

Redesign all the Indian sedans that have evolved from its sibling hatch. Somehow, these type of sedans never looked seamless to me.

well said i dont like the concept of bringing the hatchback with its sibling sedan model. we to design a hatchback it should suffice all the needs, however now a days the hatchbacks are designed like of the same 3/4 of the sedan (except the boot space or the seperate Dicky ). A New trend need to be born...
