Check around...I think Rohan or Vipul may have GV on stock.

I am in Australia right now, and was surprised to see a piddly looking GV, it was a two door, very small, I thought it was a Jimny and wanted to check it out and was surprised with the grand vitara badging on it. This was at the airport parking lot and it was a nice experience checking out all those beautifull cars.

No, it was too cold and raining also I had just landed so didnt have a chance to get the camera out of my bags. I am here for another 20 days I am sure I will get a chance to catch it on the camera.

Some one in Gurgaon was looking for a new GV...Yesterday I saw a silver one parked in Rohan's lot on Mathura Road. Must be one of last pieces unsold.

Well, 3door GVs are sold in Australia, I've seen quite a few over there. They are priced at around 20% less than normal 5 cylinder ones. Looks real nice, wish something similar was sold in India too... might make a perfect match for that Fiat 500 everybody always want....

Default Try a second dand CRV

You'll easily find a second hand 2008 CRV for about 14 lacs in Delhi.

Any news about the launch? What about the pricing? Time for you to pull up a scoop!

The appearance might remain the same, as there is yet to be any revision/ face-lift, let us assume.

I spoke with Apra (Maruti's dealer in Gurgaon), they confirmed that New GV would be launched within this month (April 09) with revised price tag. He did hinted at 2.4 ltr engine with 5 speed Autobox! But again with new engine Maruti would foolishly raise the price tag :( I tried two dealers but none had a 2008 GV AT at discount.

So...I am back to square one....Safari or no Safari...or what?
Go to the GV site, it mentions a limited stock of a "Silver Edition" GV with Limited Stock and AT / MT options. Looks like your chance to seal the deal on a discounted GV !!

GRAND VITARA

Edit : Seems to have leather seat covers too. But the chrome exterior mirrors look absolute rubbish. And why is an "instrument panel trim" an accessory to make one feel premium??

AFAIK the new GV lot is at the docks and MSIL would decide pricing info after launch of Ritz. Hopefully they would not increase price too much.

Just got some update on new GV, I spoke with their regional office. The launch is due in a month's time. No word on price but expect it to be 25-40% higher due to higher specs.

Default new Vitara

Just got a call from the Vitesse guy. Says Vitara launch in about 20 days. Expect the 2.4 or 2.5 L but no guesses on pricing. said it could be 1L - 1.5L higher but i doubt that. i think it could be more. so vitara looks like going out of my budget now!!
