I hate these interiors
Why central console mounted cluster
Boot integration is better than Manza and Dzire

Agree polo is good news so far hope no shockers on price eagerly waiting for team bhpers to post after the show and also for expert opinions on the engine. I called the dealer here he has no clue abt this jus took my number. 6.5 for highline would be a dream I guess, wonder how this matches upto i20 in terms of siZe/ dimensions.

The permanent, intelligent, power-distributing four-wheel drive with 17 inch alloy wheels, hill hold and hill start assist with a ground clearance of 180 millimeters makes Yeti fun and dynamic to drive on and off the road. Skoda is expected to launch the Yeti by the end of 2010.
Sounds like they have a 20 L price mark already set for the yeti. Someone, please post the pics of the new Safari.

Subjective opinion but it looks fairly decent and conservative IMO. I am sure it will sell well. Consumer may be divided almost the way Civic and Corolla have divided their customers.

The W221-series, Mercedes-Benz claims, is the world's most successful luxury saloon. The revamped S-Class boasts a host of technologies - in safety, comfort and dynamics - that makes it quite up-to-date.The SL 500 L comes priced at Rs 95 lakh, ex-showroom, New Delhi.
