My favorite : The Landcruiser

SUVs & MUVs galore!

A pointless concept car. Sure, it boasted of a "low slung aerodynamics" and hydrogen fuel cell power, but I feel she was only there for the sake of having a "concept" car at the Toyota stall. Rehaan comments that this car was probably designed in the nineties!

To be honest, the most BORING stalls were that of Toyota and Honda. Surprising when you consider they have so much eye candy to offer from their global operations. You'd think they didn't care about their auto expo presence.

Amongst the most interesting was Marutis....this without even unveiling a significant new car! Of course, more on that later. And in a separate thread.

Excellent pics GTO! I somehow feel Toyota is going wring with the sedan, the hatch looked so much better.

Any idea if the interiors were work in progress or final version?

Nice reports on the cars shown by Toyota. I kind of liked the ETIOS, any news on pricing or launch or specs?
How does the Etios compare in size and looks (to the real eye) to the other existing C segment cars?
Any clue on whether this would be the production car, or is it still more like a concept?

Thanks GTO for the super pics!
The sedan looks very boring and very loganish! Though interiors looks very refreshing!

Good Pic GTO!
For me it feels like TATA is the only manufacture to rock the Auto expo 2010 and rest of them seems to be name sake.I think we can exclude BMW to some extent.

Etios looks like a more aerodynamic Logan. Interiors don't look any better either.

where are the pics of the hatch.
the sedan looks decent but rather it feels built for a purpose.
as with all toyota's build quality looks excellent with good material being used in the interiors(at least thats how it looks in the pics)

Thanks for the pics GTO! You've covered the Delhi Auto Expo brilliantly!
Any indications on how much the Prius will cost here? And when does Etios go into production?

Wasn't the innova supposed to be upgraded with an intercooler and some other modifications to make it BS-4 compliant?

From the looks of etios, it is going to be tough to take on ANHC. Seems a segment lower than ANHC. Why do Toyotos look boring ?

The boot segment resembles logan. Toyota definitely stressed on the chrome.
The front grill and rear chrome is surely going to attract our public.

Wow Toyota's Facelifted Logan aka Etios looks okay.Prius looks good and that concept is totally boring instead they should have displayed some kitted LC's or Corolla's.
