Spoke to HMP (Hyundai Motor Plaza, Delhi) today morning. It seems the dealers are still not very forthcoming about the car and its features. Also they refuse to confirm the launch date as 1st Nov, and instead say that it is expected in the next 10-15 days at best.

Just a matter of time I guess.

Looks like the I10 website is also privately hosted. You can see that change of status when you visit it. Strong signals, it can be anytime now!

This time, I wish the car is worthy of being positioned against swift.

BTW, where does this leave Getz? A new segment, maybe B++
Offcourse that was the plan!!!!

Did not swift succeed by undercutting Getz!. When launched it offered similar features, space etc at a little lesser price and promise more fuel economy!

I long suspected that Hyundai would do a something similar with PA. Its a Santro+ and a Swift undercutter (whatever that means ) strategy!

Hail the new VFM hatch!

True. Infact the site is hosted by a Delhi based (i think) company called Magnon Solutions. They are the guys who do all sister websites of Hyundai India.

Precisely! It isnt supposed to work until the day of/after the launch. Until then you can keep visiting it to check if it has started to work or not - you never know as you may just get to view a test page in case the web programmers are dum enough to work on live/production site.

What good will it be if the website starts working from now on - It is currently Locked to Guests at the moment. I assume they are still preparing the site or just waiting till the D - Day.

As for now we know for sure that there is a site by that name which means the Official Car Launch is not far away

Sales at Sanjay Hyundai tells me that Launch will be in Delhi on 1st Nov.
Car will be available for TD after 2nd Nov. Dealers can order the car any time now. Sanjay Hyundai will have this car available for delivery starting from 6th Nov. The sales guy denied to give specs.

Good for smokers. Dont have to open windows and the smoke vanishes away into thin air outside
