In Bangalore, autowallahs drive an auto since its so cool and sexy! Their initial choice was Swift ZXi! But then the Bajaj RE came and choice was simple!
Not to forget the brand value they have built so painstakingly over the years - being brash, rude, un-predicatable, over-clocked meters .. you name it, they are it. And you are asking them to give up those mean smoky sound-machines for something as sweeet as this ?

Guess Tata is looking to offer the Magic Iris as a replacement for the Autos, it would be a welcome addition even though it looks very quirky.
Need to see how how Tata places this along with the Nano.

Wasn't Hyundai part of the show? No news of it at all. What about the new Santro and a proposed small car (800-100 cc) .

Does the Thar come with open differential or does it have differential locks? I really think that Mahindra should start offering diff locks in all their 4x4s atleast as an optional package. I was also hoping for a more practical offroader but am disappointed. Just a few headlights and a chrome grill does not speak well when the company claims to release a new variant.


Any news about the new wagon R ?

Guys stop judging the THAR based on the pics, As some one rightly said its to attract a niche crowd. This vehichle looks like an export version, based on the responses from people at the expo they might launce the exact same one for indian roads as well. It has all the bells like a wiench AC, PS etc. how many hard core offroaders do we all know, only a handful and i do not think this will appeal a lot of them as every offroader has his own prefrence in terms of a vehichle.


Lets just wait for the mahindras to announce their plans for us indians and let them price it right.

Looks good an alternative to the Traveller as an ambulance, but i didnt understand the relevance of the points i mentioned above concerning the Winger dressed up as an ambulance.
