@ariesonu - Thanks for the pics.

Kizashi does look big enough when compared to the Rav4, but sad that they are not offering Sunroof. I hope MSIL offers the sports kit atleast as an option.

I just noticed that all the cars have the beige black interior and none of them have the black interior. One of Sids posts mentioned that the Black car would get the beige treatment and the white and silver cars would get the black interior.

As per sidindica's earlier post, they would be shipped from Sagara plant, Japan. And yes, it is indeed a CBU and would be delivered from Japan.

In post #145, Sid has mentioned this-
Interiors will be two tone black and beige as shown below (mirrored to represent RHD) in all colours, black, white and silver.

Those stickers will ensure that the car is idiot-proofed against the handlers till it gets to the owner.
I think we can make out from the rooflines whether there's a sunroof or not.
I dont believe the lines would be SO flush that there's hardly any uneven-ness.....but if so, then MS definitely deserve to price this exorbitantly( :( )

To me it seems like a mix of Swift and SX4 size wise, from the pics so far it does not do justice to the expected price unless the engine has to say something

On behalf of MUL, our job usually involves ONLY safe landing of CBU's & to check CHASSIS nos & ENGINE nos on each unit.
Give me a day & I'll try to post more detailed pics of the car.

30 cars were off-loaded in 45 minutes & my assitant could only get few seconds, on each car, before it was zoomed to car compound. Now that we have got permission to enter car compound I'll try do the justice to pics & check if any of these units have sunroof &/or any other goodies.
I just hope that they stay there for couple of more days.

Raab Rakha.

Default Re: Maruti Suzuki Kizashi 'Spotted' in Gurgaon EDIT: Launch on Feb 2nd 2011

since the car is coming as a CBU from japan, i would like to know if the exchange rate of $ and Yen is going to make an impact on the price of the car for the indian customer?

i would like to give an example> in dubai the honda cars made in japan are more expensive than toyota and nissan made in malaysian, indonesia, thailand or australia, because of the $ and yen exchange rate!

the accord and civic (made in japan) are much more expensive than camry (made in aus) and corola (made in thailand).

i dont know what method of payment is made by MS to Japan suzuki!

could anyone elaborate on that, please!

My Maruti guy has indicated that the launch is on 28 January.
Lets wait to see if that is true.

two things...

1) i see a USB port right next to the cigarette lighter, but hope they have an AUX too
2) would have liked to have indicators on OVRMs, these have the typical MSIL treatment

Thank you so much - That was some seriously good work.

Looking at those pics, I wonder why my car suddenly feels inadequate. If priced right, and/or manufactured in India (whenever) this has Market-Leader written all over it, not that its' something new to MSIL.

The next scoop better be the ex-showroom price for this magnificent beauty on wheels.

I think the interior looks better than cruze, civic, altis and laura. and if its priced below 16 on road, it will be market leader for sure! But above that it would be very difficult for it to fight against accord and mighty superb. Would surely pick over civic/altis/laura/cruze for sure. Let's see how the new 2011 jetta comes though.

The interior again.. Looks beautiful! Only if it would come with a sunroof and a GPS. and as far as my personal experience goes with suzuki cars in past.. They are all good handlers and have great ride quality. and this one also seem to have a rocket of an engine! Should be great. Love those wrap around tail lights. Looks bmwish!

Big companies use something called currency hedging to protect them. In this case, we have a large company doing a low volume project...so they may just absorb it.

Keep in mind, Maruti is also importing a lot of parts for its other cars that are exposed to the same risk (currency fluctuation).

A friend of mine spotted this somewhere outside Gurgaon at some resort.

He said there was training going on for Maruti.
