Thats the biggest compliment Dzire would have got till date. Common Kaushik it looks ok. The boot job could have been better. There is surely some disappointment after seeing the Verve sedan concept.

It seems if this car gets launched in India it will definitely be placed in the ~15lk category.

Every manufacturer does the same. They launch a car as a replacement to the old model in other markets and in India they launch it along with the current model in a higher price.

Octavia and Laura

It looks very much like the SRV from Chevy. Somehow Ford always ends up "Johnny Come late to the party" and gets beaten by good looking cars form competitors.

I wonder how much they will price this thing for?

This one looks yucky. But what matters is the heart of the beast. How big / capable is the engine?

Seeing the pictures first hand,, I just smell Fiat Linea throughout on the design end!

Thumbs down FORD, please bring back the good old Mondeo.

Had enough of the 1.4 & 1.6 war in India.

Yawn, how many more "flame surfaces" must we suffer? That said, I think its a strictly ok design, but would pale in front of the Linea.

Wouldn't the rear visibility be atrocious?

How about some minor changes? Sorry about the shutlines and contours, It was a five minute photoshop job.

there seems to be design cues taken from SX4 -- a bad inspiration
