FIAT wasn't missing dude. They had a front stall with a Foxtrot Linea and the Red Punto on display.

No info though was available on FIAT's new launches in Linea and Punto.

Went to the Auto Show South yesterday.
Disappointed is the word. Only Toyota's stall was a saving grace. They had Prius, Etios concept(hatchback and Sedan) besides all the other models which are already on road.
Indian Decar's Innova was attracting quite a crowd. Otherwise there was nothing much to see.
Jaizcrzy has already posted some photos. Will post some from my side too.

Default loved Etios Sedan

Contrary to what others feel about Etios Sedan, I just loved it.
Expected Jan'2011 and bookings may start in November.

Now the choice is between New Fiesta, VW vento and Etios...

Visited auto show yesterday evening, it was really disappointing. Some cars were kept locked, also notice at Toyota stall that one of their person was repeatedly coming to every car locking all the car doors except the driver side, given an opportunity he would have even locked that.

well guys, I guess this show was a disappointment for those people who were comparing this show with "THE AUTO EXPO", guys you can only compare an apple with an apple , you cant compare an apple with an orange.

The legacy of Auto Expo is 25 years old, and its a B2B & B2C Show.
The purpose of this show was to get only the B2C visitors.

But to let off your disappointment, we are planning to have a same show next or may be in 2012 with ofcourse a large number of manufactures participating.

Chill, this was a regional show guys, and as compared to other regional shows, this show was a hit, we only expected (I work with SIAM) 50000 visitors, and they came, exactly 50000.

well, working in Hyderabad was fun, i liked the crowd.

Will post some pics !!

The black jeep above is owned by Mr Sanjay Kapoor, GM at Hitex.
The owner of the modded innova claims to spend about 10 lacs on the body kit and interiors.
