The bonnet, headlamp area of R3 looks to have also taken some ideas from Aria. Kizashi is very good. Hope it comes very soon.

Great Coverage Rehaan , Maruti seems to be moving in the right direction with Kizashi and r111.
Few of the MODS , especially the pink one , though make it move back.

Read somewhere, Kizashi is planned as a direct import, if that is to be believed where will the price bracket land?

Great Pics Rehaan!!

The Kizashi looks awesome.

The rear end looks extremely upmarket.
Hope MUL tries and retains the flavour when going into mass production.

Most horrible looking cars by a manufacturer.

When the A-STAR concept was shown, there was pink lighting (rear view mirrors, music system, seats etc) , all around the car, in R3 it is all blue. By the time the actual model comes to life the cool factor just vanishes! Kizashi proves the point.

Display of Sx4 hatch was interesting. Bring it on Maruti to compete with i20, jazz & polo.

I read GTO's post on Toyota- he felt Maruti was more interesting than Honda and Toyota- even tho a new car was not launched...the stall looks more jazzy for sure with the lights etc...did you mean a damp squib as there was no launch??

The ground clearence of both Kizashi and SX4 in display seems to be very less. I guess that is one which would surely change.

Hi Rehaan,

You did a great job with great photos. Maruti will steal the show. Kizashi and RIII are really great cars. The interiors of RIII is far ahead of Etios shown in the photos.

Thumbs up Kizashi Pricing??

Maruti please bring on the SX4 Crossover.

I did some simple calculation to get expected pricing for SX4 Crossover & Kizashi referring Suzuki US price.

SX4 Sedan = $13,359 = Rs. 6,84,400 (Ex-Show. Pune)
SX4 Crossover = $15,849 = Rs. 8,11,944
Kizashi = $18,999 = Rs. 9,73,318

I wont be surprised to see Maruti launching Kizashi base variant @ 9.7Lakh (Ex-Show) if its build here!!

Some of the mods are good. Some are a direct fit for the Weird and Wacky mods thread.
BTW the Kizashi looks good.
Surprised to see a layer of dust on the dash of the Kizashi? I always thought these display models are kept spanking clean
