I am now waiting for the official launch and the pricing.Almost every spec has been speculated enough that i don't think the official launch will have anything surprising except the pricing.

6 lakhs for the top end version is a very good deal indeed!

Dealers are started giving bits and bytes info about GP. Petrol model costs in BLR

Petorl model price (Ex-showroom)
Dynamic- 4.75L
Emotion- 5.25L
Emotion Pk- 5.6L

Note: Its only a approx. figure

OT: Already completed TD for Ritz and i20. OMG comparing with i20 Ritz is no were near in comfort, quality and Look.. No offense though to others.

Thanks wildon, any idea how much would be the OTR price based on these figures?

OT: no point in comparing Ritz and i20, they are in two different segments IMO.

In Bangalore, the basic maths is, 50k for below 5lacs and 90k for above 5 lacs.
Hence, Emo Pk should come around 6.5 OTR(which also confirms the existing rumors ).

However, what we all are waiting for is the MJD prices !!

I know.. I was comparing the new cars only. I thought maruti improved... but it still seems to be old wine in a new bottle ( interior quality)

Emotion Pk Petrol- 5.6L + insurance around 14k + Reg. around 55k = 6.29L (Apprx)

If you are taking this calculation Dynamic Petrol will be cheaper than the i20 Magna around 25k in B'lore and you are getting a 1.4 instead of 1.2

Guys, Wasnt the launch supposed to happen in Bangalore on June 3rd or 4th? Where are the Sid twins with their scoops and Ram_hyundai also who used to provide some tid bits.

We are almost there and hope they dont push it further.

The prices of 4.75 to 5.6 Ex show room for Petrol seems realistic and hope the diesel ones are on these lines ( 5.3 to 6.4 Ex showroom ) I am taking a guess though

Can we expect the car to be 6.44 on road? I am not specifying the engine specifically as I think it should be for the diesel.
