Looking at the hints, doesn't look like a car at all. Must be they are promoting some safety technology.

I may be wrong. LOL.
right from the beginning i too have a feeling that its the new swift.
1. i read in another thread the booking for the old swift was closed, the same thread also said the launch of the new swift around diwali.
2.the new swift is targeted to compete with i20 so 5star safety is the campaign.
3.its the rebirth of the existing car, making it bigger better and more alive

So this is what the fuss is all about. Abslutely nothing has changed, only the marketing and positioning campaign.

ABS and driver airbag continue to be optional on VXi as it was from the beginning.

whats the new thing to the estillo again ?? Just new ad's ??

Maruti: You can do things wayyyyyyyyy better than this. Let me give you few options:

- Why not have the estillo in diesel ?
- Retune the engine to give out more HP
- Put the 1.2 and literally kill the i10 market.

4 pages, 54 posts of tbhp server space, just for nothing.

what a let down.

Maruti really need to resurrects form how it does biz lately. It will be left out.

I had a very bad experience when buying a new car from a dealership couple of months back. Good thing is that another dealership came to the rescue.

@ Sid, the background in the Gypsy picture very much appears like an Indian garage to me

'Kaala' ya 'Safeed' is that Estillo is launched with the K-series engine, isn't it? The brochure says so!
Look at the 'Kaala' portion in the second picture!
