Whoa!! That pimped up nano is awesome!

Seems like the pumping of all those speakers will provide a real boost to the car's 0-60!

I'll be going maybe tomorrow or day-after!

Thanks a lot for the pics kpzen and others!

Understand that Magic is not aimed at a suave buyer like you. There are people who are looking at an option to travel from A to B with basic comforts.

Given the number of people mover version of ACE that I see on the highways, I feel that there will be many takers for this too.

Personally, I take share auto (yes contraption with 3 or 4 wheels and tin on top) to office many days and if I have choice to travel in Magic, I will definitely feel happy about it.

I think Magic Iris & Versa/Eeco are competing for the worst looking car of the year award.

If anyone thought Xylo looked unbeatable on this front, think again. Here comes the martian and the frankenstein.

Maruti should rename it as Eeek.....O..Oh !! (i seriously miss the scratching head smiley here)

whoaa...that Megane sports trophy looks super hot!! It's got a mid, longitudinally mounted 3.5L V6 that develops 360bhp and 390Nm of torque!!
will we ever get the Megane in India?

tifosi.
forget me even the bangalore auto wallahs will hesitate to buy this.
but seriously you think this vehicle looks decent? 70% of the guys here are basically thrashing this and you are standing here and defending this little Martian .
there is literally any space up front. People used to condemn the omni on poor construction/no crumple zones etc .
they should probably sit in an magic iris.

on a lighter note :
even the model standing next to the accent must be thinking "what a boring car this is ".

If you are referring to Magic Iris, i think target is not individual owners, but the Rickshaw market. Defenitely they looks much better than the AutoRickshaws and Jhonkas that they are supposed to replace. You are right, if you drive this to work, you will defenitely looks like a total fool.

Does anybody have detailed pictures of Magic Iris? Verdict is passed but I do not even know how it looks like inside.

Pictures please?
