Well have seen the car in Personal in UK, The rear though bit awkward doesn't look that bad in personal and above all the looks grow on you when you see what you are getting at the price paid, and as with history of Maruti, they will surely price it greatly.

Example: Xylo, Looks ugly but a huge sucess!

Come on, boss, its not that ugly that it should be compared with Xylo. I know you are talking about how clever pricing makes for the dowdy looks, but xylo, IMHO is miles ahead of being awkward. While splash does look smart from most of the angles.

Guys will there also be 1.0 engine option same as A-Star ? I saw 1.0 on UK site. I seriously hope they just have 1.2 Petrol and 1.3 DDiS. Price it around 30K lower than Swift and i think it will sell good.

At autoexpo 2008, maruti had displayed a-star and splash. At that time, what maruti had shown as a-star is going to be launched as ritz. The model splash displayed is not in picture with respect to marketing. I am posting pics of a-star[ritz] and splash.

original a-star to be launched as ritz.

Man,
truly speaking, i don't know what is kizashi. the executive at display said that its splash. i had only single pic of that model named as splash. i had plenty pics of a-star aka ritz to be launched.
maruti had launched some other model as a-star and not original a-star.

The training is not yet started for the sales folks. However, one of them confirmed to me that it is coming in May and would call me as soon as it arrives.
