Thats the i20 for sure. The new signature Hyundai grill, the ORVMs and the headlights are easy giveaways!

It sure is a highly camouflaged car. I can't make out which car it could possibly be but would tend to agree with views that the ORVM's look like Hyundai.

- The main grill (not the lower one) has a swoop down in the center (maybe for the logo). Which car has these? (apart from Skoda -- which this for sure couldn't be, though the the ORVM shape is smiliar to Skoda's)

- The padding on the bonnet is similar to the picture posted earlier on the thread by dirtydan and neon himself. (but not the ORVM)

The Bravo likeness is unmistakeable but, why would the Bravo be camouflaged? (The whole country has already seen it on their India expedition.)

Default New Alto/A star

I still think its the new Alto
Look at the RVMs and the area where the windshield gels with the roof
As for the grille mismatch, they could have changed it slightly?

Is it just me or do those ORVM's remind anyone else of those on the Ford Fiesta?

This could also be the facelifted Ikon.

The ORVM 's of Ikon arent body coloured as shown in Neon s pic. Neon had mentioned it was a hatchback. I guess its a i20. Great find Neon.

I know the Ikon doesn't have body coloured ORVm's. I said they look like those on the Fiesta.

Anyway, since its a hatch the Ikon possibility is ruled out.

It's a Hyundai. Mostly it is the i20.

With a little more confidence that it IS the i20 - check this link :

Hyundai Forum -> Hyundai i20 (New Getz)

And compare with the spypic posted, you will see even the camouflage dressing matches

If you watch the grill which is partially vissible, it is divided like in lancer. So it could be a Renault (clio ?) or some model of proton (malasian car which is supposed to come to India in some time)?

This has to be the i20.

It's not a Fiat. Fiat never camouflage their cars. They are a very transparent and open company!

After seeing that, It's quite obvious that it IS the I20.
The entire camouflage is identical itself.
