My hunch from luxury car makers:

MBIL : facelifted S.

BMW : X5M & X6M

RR : Ghost

Going by the international trends, there would be several hybrid versions on showcase. IMO Toyota will defiantly launch the Prius here.

What are the dates/venue of the show?

Varun, the way they are revamping their whole lineup including new spark and Aveo. It is highly unlikely they would introduce new Optra aka Lacetti as well.

the lacetti is nothing but the cruze. in other markets it is called the lacetti. It is also supposed to be the replacement to the optra too.

Santa Fe was already shown last year, is it going to be shown again or launched. Indicruz or Xover my sources tell me will be launched before the Expo, Mahindra SUV & new Safari might be shown as concept, I dont think they are ready to be launched. But again does Tata or M&M show concepts in India.

Probably. I only read it on another t-bhp thread where the new was based on what another member was told by his dealer. It could be true or another case of chinese whispers

Default 10 CARS that will ROCK 2010!

Ok- first of all, this is not only about cars that will be showcased at the Auto Expo in Delhi. This is a picturesque description of the ten cars that will change the face of Indian Auto Industry in 2010. These cars are taken from across the range of manufacturers in India.

1) HYUNDAI H800/ METRO



This car will arrive by the end of 2010 and will rock the A segment and its current leader the Alto. Will it be able to snatch away the throne?

2) FORD FIGO



Has Ford hit the bull's eye? Has it got the 'cool factor' to help it pull it off in the B Segment? I think it does, considering its Ford India's first and coolest entry into the B segment. With prices at 3.5 lacs, its sure to rake up the sigri in the auto market!

3) VOLKSWAGEN POLO and POLO SEDAN (same POLO brand hence single heading)







Well, I needn't introduce POLO to you all. It's a VW, it's got both diesel and petrol engine options and even a 100bhp devil! Who would resist this car? I think if the prices are placed correctly, VW might even outrun the i20 and trample the Figo?

4) NISSAN MICRA





Well the new global Micra, to be made in India in the Chennai Auto Belt, is a new entry for the crucial Renault-Nissan partnership. With the 1.5 and 1.2 engines, and with a design hopefully reciprocating the looks of its concept above, this might just pull off as a successful debut for the duo.

5) FIAT LINEA T-JET



Well, the specifications are at this thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ry-2010-a.html (Fiat Linea T-Jet in January 2010!)

And seeing such a ear cracking specification, Fiat is sure to pull it off and send the other cars cowering for shade! This change has long been awaited since the original Linea released and is sure to be a winner in the market, considering the EVP factor and the beauty.

6) SUZUKI KIZASHI



For almost 3 decades, Maruti Suzuki has built up an image that makes itself known as the cheapest and most reliable car company in India. With more than 15 small cars in it's kitty, Maruti Suzuki will take a huge leap forward when the jump into the luxury D segment. Can their ill fitting parts and poor plastic quality be abolished when launching this car? Only time will tell whether Maruti Suzuki is ready for an upgrade in status.

7) TATA INDICRUZ



Will TATA be able to jiggle up some fresh air in the stale MPV segment? What will it have that the others dont. With TATA doing some serious testing all over the country, they must be prepared to ruffle up some feathers anytime soon.

8) HYUNDAI SANTA FE



Hyundai is making us wait for the Santa Fe for over 1 1/2 years now. Will it create the same impact as the Fortuner did when it was released? It just might.

9) SKODA YETI



Well, this car has proven itself internationally. It has got a superb 1.2 engine, superb features, space, mileage and off roading capabilities. Will it be able to slip Mahindra off it's feet as the kingpin in off roading? Wait and watch.

10) CHEVROLET BEAT



Almost missed this little fellow, who is bound to make more impact than the Chevrolet Aveo (which is also going to get a new skin next year). It has the looks, and it could be the first diesel in its segment. It has what it takes to be a segment leader. watch this space.

So you saw above, what I think where the 10 (11) cars which will rock 2010. Of course, there are many more releases in 2010 out there that also might luckily slip into maybe, the top 20. They all are:

1) FIAT BRAVO
2) HONDA ACCORD AND CRV DIESELS
3) NISSAN MURANO
4) MITSUBISHI LANCER GALLANT, LANCER EVO
5) CHEVROLET AVEO, TAVERA
6) BMW 5 SERIES
7) VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE, TIGUAN
8) HYUNDAI SONATA
9) FORD FIESTA 2010
10) AUDI R8 SPYDER
11) BMW X1
12) JAGUAR XJ
13) MAHINDRA WORLD CAR 2010
14) REVA NXG, NXR
15) TOYOTA PRIUS HYBRID
16) RENAULT LOGAN
17) RENAULT SANDERO
18) FIAT SMALL CAR

You can share your thoughts on which car(s) do you think will rule the market in 2010?

Yours,
Autocarcr

I do not know what would be displayed for sure, but following are the tops of my wish list - If you note these are the brands which haven't announced their BS4 models yet or have upgrade plans lined-up..

Sub 10L (Sedan)
1.Fiesta P with 1.6 Ti-VCT developing 115PS @ 6000rpm (combined with the Linea T-Jet, should give some restless nights for the City)
2.Fiesta D with 1.6 "Tiger" DLD-416 developing either 90PS or 110PS (i think it would be the former though the 110PS could be a Verna killer and my hot favorite)
3.Toyota Yaris
4.Fiat Linea 1.4 T-Jet (looks like its confirmed, read relevant thread in forum)
5.Fiat Linea 1.6MJD (looks like its shelved for now, same thread as above)
6.Volkswagen Polo Sedan (though its strongly rumored for fall 2010)
7.City with a Diesel unit (Am being fanciful now !!)
8.Hyundai New Elantra
9.Hyundai Face lifted Verna (The diesel one obviously)

In the 10-15 segment
1. New Lancer with 4B10 engine (1.8L with 143PS@6000rpm)
2. New lancer D (The jap one sources the engine from VW)
3.Toyota Corolla D
4.Skoda Yeti

Hatch
1.Fiat Bravo
2.VW Polo
