It's nowhere close to being as goodlooking as the Fiat Weekend / Adventure or the Opel Swing.

if the number plate was below the chrome strip it would have looked good. The Marina should also have had the wheel arches of the new Indica.

The wheel arches would mean it'll need bigger tyres to make it look good! The V2 wheel arches make the tyres look very small.

Hey V12,

Thats a really good point you have there!... i think there definitely would be a noticeable improvement in that case.

hey guys
on some runs to pune i would be seein a couple of disguised marinas goin bout with their testin....
looked good with their rear ends covered but im not too fond of it now.... atleast it looks a bit bad in these pics....
anyway i dunno bout u guys but i found the wheel arches in the new indica too be a bit sad as in the base version it looks sick ( atleast on the green col car ) and it comes off easily...
besides the tyres look so damn thin....

Took this pic last September when they were testing the Indigo Station Wagon (thats what it was called then) on the Expressway. There were 3 of these in a line. This car has a similar registration number as the Marina in Dippys picexcept for the "W" in the end.
