Post The Spanish Car Scene.

Hello T-Bhp !

I am currently in europe on a business trip, and thought this could be a chance for me to present you the spanish car scene.

The major makes of the cars are Seat, Opel, Renault,Pueguot, Ford, Audi,Mercedes-Benz And Beemers.These are on the basis of frequent spotting.

Well, I also spotted this puny car Make: "ALSAM" and Model Name is Crossline. It had a good OEM ICE, Roof Rails,Mag Wheels,Rear Defogger, Fog Lamps,Skidplates ! if am not wrong and most importantly i had two wheelers number plate.

I have asked my collegue to stand infront of the car to depict its height and lengths. Well he is 5'6".

Do you think this has market in india ? or it could be a competetior to our nano in europe. Let me know your thoughts.. Shall post more spotted car pics.

Will let pics do the talking for a while now.

That tiny car could be an electric car. I'm just assuming seeing it's size.

That would also explain the motorcycle plates with perhaps some benefit in taxation, licensing etc.

Cheers,

Smile Espanol!

Nice pics. Wish to see more of them. Just a few inputs from my side.

1. The "Opel" that you saw is a rebadged Wagon R, and the car is called Opel Agila. While the Suzuki Wagon R formed the platform for the first gen Wagon R, the Suzuki Splash (apna Maruti Ritz) forms the basis for the current gen Agila.

2. AFAIK, the Verna is sold in Spain as the Accent, isnt it? And the car ahead of it is a VW Passat, also sold in India.

Look out for Seats (the cars, not the place to rest one's bottom ) in Spain. I'm sure there will be lots.

That pick up is outright ugly! I've seen the 2 door Megane, and its actually quite sporty looking. Can't say the same of the 4 door,unfortunately.
