no matter what we think about the looks, this car WILL sell!!!
Zen Estilo looks horrible! Still sells in large numbers
SX4 not the best looking sedan out there...still sells in huge numbers
NHC hate the looks, but even my dad bought one!!!

the Indigo might not be the best looking car, but it has struck the right cord with the public, and for that it sells extremely well!! no doubt about it
Maruti Suzuki has a definate winner on their hands

Thumbs down a new ambassador from maruti

A new gen ambassador from maruti's stable !! !
Why does maruti blunder with all their new designs.
Firstly the zen, then the baleno, the alto limited version, and now the esteem.

why do people think this is production model. when its out in showrooms for sale and gaps are still there trash them, why bother wasting blood over this gap thing when its nowhere close to launch as yet. wait and watch...

No sorry, not thank you!

Actually, i just showed that poll to say most people consider it good. I feel its a 'love it or hate it' kinda design, like the Swift.

That may as well be the case with the car in the pic (the car in the foreground, described as Swift sedan). The sharp rake of the rear windshield suggests that. What say guys?

The inner edge of the boot seems to go deep into the base of the glass which would make opening and closing like a normal boot not possible unless it was hinged in a different way that I do not know.

So it seems possible that it is indeed a hatch.
