IMO, it's an Estilo model, with dual-airbags. As there is no scoop pics of any Cervo as of now, and launch date may be around next week (because results will be announced by 19th), this one cannot be the Cervo. Anyone for this?

Maruti may really want to revive the slow sellers (in Maruti standards!) Estilo and A-Star. A model that sells in high volumes (Alto, WR etc) may very soon (compared to other slow sellers) become a 'too common' car on roads. So, Maruti may try to sell Estilo and A-Star around 5k - 6K numbers monthly, by moving some sales from WR and Alto K10 to these models. We can also expect a new A-Star soon.

My thoughts!

This teaser is not about Kizashi, its about estilo being refreshed.

Alto has been given a refreshed upgrade with K-10. estilo has been struggling since it was launched, so its being given booster shots!

maruti is a catagoy leader in small car segments, why would it launch Kizashi when its not ready for big league?

I have a strange feeling about the old Zen coming back with the K-Series engine!

is there any official announcement from Maruti?
I think this is just a scam to get people's addresses.

Me too agree with Sid! It must be a Kizashi teaser (if it is official) and then the answers are
who's coming Alive? - 'dummy' (/dummies)
whats making them come alive? - Kizashi !!!

As per their US product brochure (https://auto.suzuki.com/_m/sr_11/bro...11_kizashi.pdf), they have enough to brag about safety.
So I guess 'safety' will be their main marketing word this time.

Already Estilo top end version has airbags.

After-all, the Maruti Zen which was sold in India was a re-badged 4th Gen Suzuki Cervo.
if the 'alive' word in the teaser could be the 'real' hint then it is defnitley the sporty-Cervo redbadged as "Zen-Alive"

Estilo got an upgrade very recently. It won't be upgraded again that soon.
It will co-exist with Zen-(Cervo/Alive) if at all Cervo is launched as we are speculating.

I got through!!!

Maruti Suzuki's new teaser website. EDIT : It's the Estilo!-themod.png

It is not a hatch.

It is, yes, a mod.

They first asked me for my name, mobile number, email id and address, once the name was entered.

But tell me if I am wrong, and entering any random character gets one to that page.

Wasn't the Cervo discontinued in March 2010? Wikipedia tells so. I feel that this is a teaser website for Cervo. I am not very sure that this website is about Kizashi, since the rumour mill says that it will be launched after SX4 diesel is launched next month.

Whatever the hint are they point out to crash test dummies hints of sieera sam, Hybrid III, THOR, 1949 point to that, but which car is related to it is the main thing, my guess is Kizashi, as test mules are spotted.
