As per Motoroids, there is no Ford at Auto Expo 2010 as Ford itself opted out of it.
Ford opts out of the Auto Expo 2010, but the Ford Figo will be coming soon - Motoroids.com

Any updates on TATA's 'Magic Iris' and MPV 'Venture'?

Can someone get some info about the New Lancer 2010 ??
I called up local Mitsubishi dealer in HYD. They said EVO is coming in March. Nothing else is disclosed by the company. And for the Lancer 2010. no news at all :(
I heard a spec that new 2010 Lancer would have a 1.8L MIVEC Engine...
If someone's friend is at Auto Expo right now then can he checkout Mitsubishi and ask them?

Thanks

2) Toyota Etios sedan.
The car already looks old as compared to what competition is offering. This applies to hatch version too.

Precisely my point as well. Imagine how old this would look in 2011!
And they have re-invented the word, 'Concept'. Normally we associate concept cars to be futuristic and expect some of the features (design or anything for that matter) to be deleted in the production version. But the Etios has nothing of that sort! Plane jane!

Well IIRC Etios Concept model shown is 90% of the production model. 10% might be more chrome. But the best concept- actual model has to be Chevy Beat!!

Where's the rumored >100hp Punto?

Pathetic.
Toyota can certainly come up with better designs.

Mitsubishi is going to loose out big time, All their competitors are getting better cars, and all they show is arrogance. Well i used to be a Mitsubishi fan, guess no more.

Does anyone have pics of the Chevy Cruze WTC Edition thats on display ?

Ah..! Bad!
Problem is I cant see any car other than Lancer to buy. Have been a big fan of it since kid.... And right now planning to buy a used Lancer as I cant convince myself to buy a New Lancer which is 3 generations old. So I thought maybe the 2010 Lancer. But anyways, I guess used Lancer still makes sense.

Anyhow...

What is 'THE' performance or enthusiast car displayed in 2010 Auto Expo or I must say 'will be launched' in 2010?
-Thanks

whats this Magic Iris ?? is it based on Nano ?

the Grande and the XENON XT look awesome in those colours. I have been visiting the xenon webste for the whole of last week dreaming up a fully kitted version ..umm..

Why cant TATA atleast put fatter tyres on these cars atleast for the autoshow ??

the ARIA looks all set to do what the XYLO has not been able to - break the INNOVA's backbone.

But I hope somewhere down the line TATA does not come out with some Lx variant with black bumpers and stripped down interiors for the taxi market.

If it performs to the likes of current toyota vehicles in India am sure indians will go for it without any considerations. Eg - Qualis, though discontinued but still there are many takers for it. looks are subjective.
