I wish too.. but as already mentioned it would be the Toyota Etios. The good thing is there would be a 1.4 diesel under the hood!!

The silhouette in the ad seemed too big - more like a Camry. Guess they used it for illustration purpose.

Let us wait for the real thing to show up in the auto show.

Just saw the list. Thanks.

As someone confirmed before - HM Mitsu not participating. I hoped they would. Their Cedia Sports is gaining a bit of confidence now. Sad !

I did not see Autopsyche's name OR did I miss it ? I saw DC there and Sam's name as well.

Will meet you there Sam

Would be interesting to see what the Mahindra Navistar trucks are made of and how they look at the Auto Expo.

Default I guess Chevy Beat is a certainty

I saw a huge billboard on NH47 (near Palakkad) announcing that a new Chevy will hit the roads in January.

That is Chevy BEAT. There has been a teaser airing on TV about it.

Very true Motorspirit.....

Where is Ford or Fiat?
Extremely surprising....

Are they going to be actual exclusions?
With Figo round the corner, Ford's absence is glaring.

Fiat is going to be there along with Tata in Hall no. 11. However, ford is not participating, that is confirmed in recent autocar issue.

Default Maruti @ Auto Expo

Saw this in rediff

A peek at Maruti's dazzling cars : Rediff.com Business

Maruti to showcase 17 cars in their auto expo stall.


Quote:
Maruti Suzuki will showcase 17 vehicles at the forthcoming Auto Expo in January 2010. With the theme, 'Joys of Life' Maruti Suzuki aims to highlight its position as a 'people's carmarker'.
The company says it has been a reason for 'Joy' for millions of middle-class Indian homes in the last 26 years.
The Maruti pavilion will also showcase a clay model of the A-star. The 3-D scale model is a semi-finished sculpt in clay, which highlights the detailing that goes into the making a car. The clay modelers will be seen chiseling away on the clay model, working on the detailing of the car.
