my mom's been waiting for this car for long. after driving my RS she would love to have one but it is too big for her to park. so a fabia with a 1.8Tpi would really be her thing. However I can see her getting frustrated.

Petra and Corsa are both European and have a solid feel.

They better! If they come in with the old Fabia after all these years it would be a flop. The Indian customer knows what is an outdated product these days.

Forget Fabia. Isn't that a very old model now?

Yesterday I got my June BSM with the cover page of Chevy Aveo. This is a brand new car and will be released in India by March 2006. GM will be replacing Corsa with Aveo.

Hi Samurai

There's another thread on the Chevy Aveo - check it out. Meanwhile, its not exactly a brand new car as its been available as a Chevy for about two years now, before which it was a Daewoo (with a funny name).

my mom drives a corsa 1.6. The only reason against the Petra was FIAT's poor service record (I hear it has improved since) and their Italian principals poor financial health (remember Daewoo?).

I have not seen it but my guess is that the Aveo will have controls like the other Korean cars.
