Hi rehaan,
Great pictures. As for the price, the Kizashi is touted to be priced b/w 10-12 lacs and if that is the case it is going to cause some serious dent to the accord and camry as some of the options available in the kizashi is available in top end models. Am attaching a link here which makes great reading regarding the kizashi. Cheers

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!!

Do they have any plans of launching the SX4 hatch in India?
It looks cool. Looks more like a mini SUV

Any pictures of Eeko?

I need to ask experts one safty question which I have in my mind after seeing this R3 which is from Maruti.

How safe is this concept of no pillar between the two doors? Driver door and back door.

I have some doubt about all these concept cars and modded cars.

After this expo finishes and all the expos which are going to happen this year, what exactly happens to these concept cars and modded cars?

Do these get dumped in junkyard or few lucky ones with good contacts get to buy them?

I have some serious doubts on this, please clear it.

The structure would be sufficiently reinforced to do away with the Pillar

Flash photography can amplify a lot. You wouldn't have noticed if you were there in person. Also every stall had people working non-stop cleaning the cars.

The roof and floor would have to be re-enforced further in order to compensate for the structural loss of the B-pillar.

I'm not sure what you mean, but i think once again its the flash that shows the circular pipes within the exhaust openings, which actually aren't easily seen when you see the car in person.

By Maruti standards, that's one bizarre stall !! I agree though, definitely amongst the most interesting stands at the show. Love the Kizashi, but the rear lip on the boot is too big IMO, ruins the look. They should consider fixing that. Couple of nice bodykits there, except the fugly pink A-Star and DC-jaw'ed Swift job.

Most of the mod jobs done by MSIL for the AutoExpo'10 will find a safe place at the wierd & wacky mod jobs thread!

Thumbs down

After Maruti launched Ritz, I use to think that what else can be done to make it look even more uglier but now I got the answer. Look at that Ritz while interiors are like they are painted using a wood primer and dual exhaust tip I cant stop laughing!! C'mon Maruti give me some chance to praise you guys. By the way IMO Kizashi is exactly NOT same as Kizashi 3 concept!! It looks like bigger and more rounded version of current SX4 sedan. It may have all the goodies and excellent interiors but overall shape and styling is not attractive.

What I meant was that the rear exhaust outlet could have been expanded and molded in the shape of the its chrome bracket thus integrating with the bumper itself as we seen in some other high end sedans and suvs, rather than having small diameter ends.
Any how the car sure is appealing. Am loving it.

Thanks rehaan for the photos. Kizashi, sx4 hatch and r111 were great, but all other mod cars were eye sore. whats wrong with Maruti . i would rather suggest them to pick mod cars from couple of bhpians to display in their stall, that sure have brought in more flashes..

Hi friends,

Whether beautiful or ugly. In India Maruti is the best for the rural or urban people.From 800 to Kizashi except Versa,Gypsy which model did not sell or out dated. Swift and Ritz too got critizism of the look. Both are going on waiting period. Like that Kizashi,R3 and EEco will also get welcome. Maruti has people for all its models and variants. They are the only pople of Indian system with cheap spares and nook and corner service station. So it will get welcome by different walks of people for different models and variants.

Some real ugly modifications there. Kizashi looks promising though.

What about the new Wagon-R? Are they not going to show it now?
