It could be a Kizashi . But we cannot know if its the same car because, there is huge difference between the A-star concept and A-star actual one which is about to be launched. The concept car was amazing with those sharp lines and boomerang model turn and brake lights

Since its the Maruti team doing tests with A-star this could be another car car from the same manufacturer.

IMRB has an auto dedicated division which would be doing this work, but highly unlikely in a tent. Even Fusion/Innova were tested in 4-5 star hotels, and that happened ages ago.

For a car for which they are looking at C segment owners, 1500 gift voucher seems fair enough - an arrow shirt kind of price, but the tent thing doesnt fit in, unless some auto company is testing response to competition product (still unlikely in a tent - maybe venue cost cutting). and they wont keep it for so many days over there. must be moving on to another city by now.

And it just cant be a Peugot

guys it could be toyota. When i TD the altis there was a executive from Toyota who had this weird questionnaire the main question was if toyota launched a car that is slightly cheaper than the corolla say honda city priced and was a tad bit short on the feature list would i buy it. So i am guessing its toyota.

If you do get the questionanire, please please do share it. PM me. more greedy about it than about the car.

What a brilliant strategy to trick an owner of a 50,00,000 car into partcipating in a market survey.... just bait them with a 1,500 Rs gift voucher. Stroke of genius!!!!

but curious to know which car is it.

even my gut feeling is that it could be a french car.

I don't have any bosses, I am my own boss

I am in my final year of MBA programme from IIPM, Delhi.
the campus is in satbari, just 2 kms away from tivoli garden.

this thing happened on my way to college.

The concept looks like the of best Bentley and Jaguar design elements, potboiled. The grill is a bit naughty but the side profile is just yummy!
