Actually it should remain the same car.
New model with the same name, as is the norm the world over.

Just as :



92 Toyota Corolla



2007 Toyota Corolla.

hi guys,

the funny thing is that most of the cars that were or have been here the past 10 odd years all desperately need a facelift because they weren't terribly modern in the 1st place! thankfully the situation seems to have improved now with almost simultaneous launches across the world.

the worst offenders IMO

m 800
esteem
indica
mahindra bolero

the reason i haven't put down the ambassador/gypsy etc is because as far as i am concerned, the amby is a classic and though they've tried to jigger it up a bit - i prefer it to be the way it always has..a proud mastif from another era.


some of the guys before have posted that the palio stile needs a facelift!! it IS a facelift... what they probably want to convey is that they don't like the looks of the car, it does not have anything to do with the age, so a bit off topic here.

Looks like we are going overboard with some of our demands here.
