I think it is better to keep this thread separate from the other one which has become too long to concentrate upon.
Ain't it?

Short Drive feed back:

3 pot engine feels quite torquey and revs freely as well.

I bet this one would be another winner from Maruti's Stable.

currently I have a splash brochure with me, which I was reading it right now
(its a European market brochure which still contains all the engine details-1.2 benzine, 1.3 DDIS which will be launched in India.)

if you want, i can scan and upload it, prvided you can understand the FRENCH language.
Looks like Dutch to me, not French. Anyway, I really don't get the positioning of this car. When the Splash is released, Maruti's going to have 7 hatchbacks in the market, which is....um, a lot.

Any idea on the dimensions of the car vs the WagonR or Estilo? Like Wheelbase, bootspace, width etc?

I second this. Sid deserves it. He has always been the first person to give us the correct information and whatever he has said has come true.

Really surprised to to know that A-star will be getting ABS and Airbag. I was expecting it to be a model between Alto and Estilo. So never expected anything better than the Estilo. Maybe they are taking the fight to the i10 which comes with ABS and Airbag. Price wise I think Maruti will win the game as the ZXi may come for 4.80Lakhs(guess) on road.
