All Maruti has lined up for the Esteem is a face lift...and we all know what that means!

Well, it was supposed to be launched mid, 2004 but as no date has been announced, therfore it`s truely uncertain.... light of hope can be seen uptil next year when maruti suzuki is going to start it`s diesel engine production in india !!

I doubt Maruti is pro-active enough to get this car in by end-2004. For now, they will make do with the Esteem (I dont know how many more years they will push this utterly outdated car through the showrooms)

The Liana could probably give the new Honda City a run for its money. Its got the same tall stance, a decent fuel-efficient engine, good interiors....Sigh, Maruti!!!

beneath that odd ball looking shape of honda is a very fantastic car. You have to experience it...like you i was a staunch hater of the looks but the amazing practicality & value the car offers is mind blowing..believe me you'd want to trade ur wagon R (that looks like a box) for the new city

Yepp, Most refined in it's class 'at the moment'.

You just echoed my thoughts! I was discussing the same with Shantanu last night.
The rear lamps look much like the Lancer's. The front is pure Indica.

Well I dont think this car is going to be launched in India soon. I guess the Ignis will be the next model to be launched from Maruti and that they will launch only after gauging the response for the Getz.

I feel all the maruti models have become a bit dated and all they are doing in just changing over to Clear *Head Lamps and calling it all new *

New Diesel engines are only available from 2006 and god know when the enw models will be launched . Sure only after mid 2005

Ignis though would be a real good car !!
