Default Spotted - Don't know what?!

Hi Guys! Spotted this car covered from all sides in the building next to my office. Couldn't clearly identify as I was on the 3rd floor! The car looked tall like the Ford Fusion and the tail lights also resembled it. See if any of you can identify this...

Sorry for the pic quality, it's taken from my phone cam from the 3rd floor and it's cropped to get the close view.

Since you mentioned that it resembled the Fusion, it could well be the Figo. However, it doesnt make any sense to mask it as it's already covered widely by the media.

Its tough to figure out which car it is from the photo,but there is high probability that it is the upcoming Ford Figo.

BTW does any auto related firm operate in that building?

Figo is running without covers and with badge through Chennai all the time.

Why would they cover it so much?

It should be some other car and its quite impossible to make out from this picture.

From what i can see the taillamps are not as high as Figo's. Im just guessing this -Nissan Micra.

See the size of the car guys.. it is pretty big for a Fusion or alike. Compare that to the Scorpio there - looks almost as big (discard the angle difference that makes the covered car look smaller).

It is almost as wide and tall. See the big flat roof. How many cars woud have that big roof and have it almost flat?

Is there something coming from the Mahindra's? (err.. pointing based on their typical attributes)

This building is still under construction, and still no office operating there.
Maybe the people in the car knew the contractor, and came to see him!

Its seems like a Indicruz to me according to the size as Figo is not a big car like this.
BTW, good spot, try for such things again & again.

well, i don't think this is the indicruz.

in comparison to the scorpio standing next to it, it looks tiny. it looks almost as big as the new indica vista.

i am sure this is not the indicruz.

does not look like the figo - it is too big, but also does not look like the indicruz as it is too small to be an indicruz.

It is something in between. But the fact that we are unable to identify it makes it an exicting new catch.

Did you see the number plate as in MH XX etc, so that we could pin point the location of the test regsitration number and then indentify the manufacturer.

It was quite too far for me to notice the number plate. The size was almost similar to Fusion.
