The comfort levels in a Optra are surely better then that of a Laura, also drive a 1.8LT Optra you will know.

So is the new (facelifted) Optra D due for launch in July advisable? It looks good in the line of the new Lumina/Caprice. My main concern is rear seat ride (Since its for my parents aged at 68 & 63), FE, overall performance and maintenance on long run. I have the Civic, Octy and Innova V grade in mind. Laura is is way too high priced.

This design looks great..

But I dont think it will be launched in India soon..
As they recently had a facelift and made the Optra look like the SRV..

For your parents aged 68 and 63 the Innova would perfect sense IMO.

Well presently they are crossing their fingers or for that case cossing everything for the success of Optra Magnum. Depending upon its performance, they would think of bringing the new design.

But Optra Magnum is like SUPERB.

But today i went to a dealer he told me that the car will have great sales & when it is going to be discounted within a couple of months its sales wud increase.
Well why does GM keep such ppl who hv a negative tendency about sales that they hv to provide discounts.
