Since its almost the year-end ! Have there been any updates on this...
Like you said,..I am sure its going to be worth the wait !

Even with my niggling issues with the car (& A.S.S),..I think Honda have had it spot on with this car till date ! Might just trade in my Gxi for a CVT,..& Pray for it being tiptronic.

Its been 1-1/2 yrs and our relationship has definitely been more love than Hate !!! What I simply love about this car is its Quality (Interiors), Perfect size (Not too big or small), more than adequate performance and class leading refinement !!

someone please bring in a RWD car with atleast 150 - 180 Bhp and under 20 Lakhs and they will have the enthusiast market all to themselves.
This is my wish for 2008.
A good RWD car.

Maybe Hyundai might flfill this wish of yours, they have been planning to launch the Tuscani since a long time. It was a FWD but the latest iteration is a RWD V6 i think.

Still cant understand the names given by Hyundai!

If they launch it in the same name, they'll have to teach owners to pronounce it. Much like tucson.

Maybe that was the reason the Tucson failed. However if Hyundai launches it in India they will mostly call it the Tiburon. The latest one is based on Concept Genisis.
