Default convertibles

hello folks
what do u think about convertibles of indian cars being launched? Just imagine, Convertible version of Zen, M800 or Indica, what a car it will be! Right? What do u think?
Are there any such plans of Maruti or TATA?

AJO.

because how many 4 door convertibles have you seen in your life and if you have did u like it ?

the very idea of converting such a car into a 2 dr and then to a convertible is absurd and impractical ..specially when the end result wont really look that appealing ..

forget the asthetic part
it won't make sence practically too

we get heavy rain. heavy summer & since considering size of cars you mentioned it must be a soft top & which will be a pain for owners
also it will be problematic security wise

also just try to picturise M800 open top standing next to you on signal

sure convertibles look cool but when given correct car, correct top at correct place

My opinion..they'll suck....got very little hair left and don't want even that to vanish...Also imagine a 20km drive in a convertible in mumbai traffic...you'll look like you just came out of africa..yikes!!!

No plans from any india mfg yet....tell me do you seriously think there is a market for this in INDIA???
