Guess, that's the reason for the small boot; not sure about the capacity of the older ones (pre duo), will have to check the owner's manual.

Seems the steering wheel is bigger than the old one. Glove box is smaller it seems.

The alloys on the Brochure looks super cool. Wish they had given them with the Vxi version.

they are giving beige interior! nice. This will add the premium feel to that car which most of average Indian car buyers think. Beige mean premium

Quote:
1. Tubeless tyres (All versions).
2. Rear parcel tray (VXi).
..........
11.
12 V socket (VXi).
Now with all these features added, pricing would be key! If not priced well say tad less than i10, surely MSIL is going to have trouble selling this!

Is alloy available with any of the version?

Now i am getting tempted to exchange my old Gen wagonR (2004 model) with this one.
The major shortcomings like notchy gearshift, rear legroom and poor rear underthigh support and not so great FE (i get around 11-12 kmpl with AC) seems to have be taken care of.
However i would miss the incredible boot (i once transported a 29 inch CRT !) and stronger bottom end of F10 D.

Its not beige. I think the pic was taken at twilight, and hence that feel of beige. Here's another pic from Autocarindia-

Well i would consider that a good feature. IN most cars nowadays, the centre console intrudes into the knee space of the driver, whereas the passenger has a enough leg room. By moving the console to the left a bit, they have essentially given the driver a little more space.

Mr. A's guesstimated pricing:
  • LX=3,30,000
  • LXI=3,65,000
  • VXI=3,97,000
  • VXI ABS+AB=4,25,000
Lets see how my prediction turns out.

Starting price 3.29 L

*I see SID edited the prices . Originally had posted 3.48 for LXI and 3.89 for VXI !

Wonder when bookings will open and delivery schedule.

Almost exact same price between Figo LXI and WagonR LXI - No longer applies

I like the answer. "...Customer does not buy cylinders, he buys the whole car..."
