Somebody* mentioned auto rickshaws: good point: don't they cost over 1 Lakh?

*(sorry not to go back and quote properly... wife insisting I get ready and go out...)

Mr. Suzuki's comments does appear distasteful and a bit under the belt...

And he expects Airbags from a one lakh car when his own company sells without any...

He should retire...

on second thoughts what if there is no safety in the 1 lac car, you are sure to have another 1 lac car in front of you so that you are safe and that car bangs someone

Clutchless CVT was chosen precisely to keep cost down!
CVT and automatic transmission are entirely different things, the latter being more expensive than a manual whereas the former is cheaper.

bike riders will have a competition with tata's 1 lac cars. I would seriously like Mr. Oh!sama Suzuki to read this thread or please someone forward the same to him. He should be aware of the fluttering he has caused on this forum.

I think the 1 lac car will surely be more safer than the Reva.....
