A friend of mine took a test drive of the optra diesel and told me that the engine was amazing. I never knew that it had already been launched ...

Hopefully 2008. The predicted numbers don't make it attractive for GM to produce it locally, which would have kept the ex-showroom below 13L. As a CBU it will cost about the same as a CR-V or Tucson - nah, not much point.

Optra Magnum is really nice car ,

Diesal segment is getting hotter and now indian consumer has more choices then before. This segment is all set to get more wide in coming days.
