I spotted following cars on the way to Mahabaleshwar,

The car looks yuck. I believe it sports the same 1.1 engine as that of Wagon R.

Also spotted this white car but couldnt see it front.

This is the last generation Zen Estilo (MR Wagon) which was quite a hit in Japan.
But looks too ugly. I can't understand where this would fit in the Maruti lineup, unless they are planning to replace Zen Estilo.

The first snap seems to be that of Suzuki Splash. No idea of the second one though.

Its not Splash but MR Wagon. Yes it looks ugly, I hope it doesnt get launched here.

Some one suggested that the 2nd one is the new Indica but I am not sure

The second one does look like the Indica. Could you make out if it was a diesel ?

Nice find...Maruti is on a roll..more sleepless nights for the rivals..

The second one sports an uncanny resemblance of an Indica.

Default Maruti on a Roll

sounds crazy but true, lots of models under 1 brand will make the customer buy the brand. Its some kind of branding and productization mantra. hope it works.

No ,its the 2006 latest generation MR Wagon.The car don't look good from the back.Front too is not impressive.Is Maruti going to launch this one as a new model or is it the new Estilo?If i am not wrong it is sold as Nissan Moco in Japan.

Nice scoop Technocrat!!! The 2nd one surely is the Next Gen Indica.
The Back light of the MR Wagon looks somewhat like the one on
Bajaj's Small car Lite. With future launches of Dzire, Splash, Cervo MSIL
seems to be on fire!!

The rear light in both cars is very much similar!
