Default Maruti Suzuki's new teaser website. EDIT : It's the Estilo!

Maruti has started a web-teaser ad campaign for a new car/engine. Has anyone seen it or guessed it?

Given clues suggest it's name being linked to a robot and also visuals of 2 robots are shown?

but why crash test dummies in a new car launch?

maybe they are going to add airbags in a car which didn't have one all these days(alto,etc)?

Quite True ! What an confusing teaser ! Does Maruti like people play guessing games.

As per our scoop master @sidindica it could be Suzuki Kizashi.

In Japanese Kizashi means "something great is coming",so it could be the Kizashi,like sid said.

The website is indeed a teaser for Kizashi. According to my sources launch is very near, though I did not the specifics on the launch.

Even the font is similar to the Kizashi fonts, so this could very well be Kizashi...

The 'Terms and Conditions' says:

"Promotion period would be from 12th November to 14th November 2010.
List of winners will be displayed by 19th November 2010 in this Estilo official website."

And the Flash image is named as 'zen_home.fla'.

So, is it something related to Estilo? Or is just to confuse more?

A new Estilo is on the offering, with some extra safety features?

Or Cervo is coming as new Estilo? Only Maruti and Sidindica can tell!

It is a car which died and it is coming back alive or is rather having a re-birth of sort. My guess is that they are bringing in the Cervo as the new Zen.

After-all, the Maruti Zen which was sold in India was a re-badged 4th Gen Suzuki Cervo.

It is the Zen Estilo alright.

I checked the page source where the movie name is stated as below

---- param name="movie" value="zen_home.swf" ------

Too bad thought they had finally launched the Kizashi

even if you put any answer, it allows you to submit your entry. As far as i feel that something which was dead coming back alive is the 'Zen' brand.

But all the hints lead to dummies in the crash test, and its no way that it provides any hint to specifically 'Kizashi'
