Default Saw Aveo today

I saw Aveo Sedan today on Law Collage Road with TC numberplate, orange colour probably going towards ARAI.
The front grill was covered with tapes in poor attempt to hide Chevrolet logo & that might be one of the reason why car didn't grab attention

The works.
Are we allowed to dream and hope for that 100 bhp Indigo LWB engine instead???? Why stop with 85, I wonder - nothing 'sporty' about that.

No DICOR, I'm sure. WE are still testing......

Dear Vivek,
Thanks for your patronage and continued interest in our brands.

With reference to your query, I would like to confirm that we have no immediate plans of launching an Indigo or Marina with a DICOR engine.
Regards
Nothing personal but what exactly did you expect. No manufacturer will admit to a new launch in public. Not when they have 6 months of stock to sell.

I mean Honda reps were in denial about the ZX untill the day before te launch. If not everyone would have caneled their bookings for the NHC and waited for the ZX.

A little but in my case Honda people gladly gave me all information about ZX VTEC & also showed me test car which was in their workshop. Same is the case with GM people, they gave all info about Aveo which they had. (Both senior level managers) Both times I had taken my car for some work, so don't know if being existing owner of brand had anything to do with it.
