Despite its quirky looks, this appears the closest to the existing wagon-r/stingray and might be its replacement in the future.

The 2 tone colours and the round headlamps copied from a Mini. Looks so adorable to my eyes. I really wish all the Kei cars come here. All we can do is lock ourselves inside our rooms and pray for the market to evolve enough to bring these awesome cars here.

The amount of customization possible could make this an ideal candidate for sales through the Nexa.

Car looks like a cross between Mini Cooper and Wagon R. But not bad. The two-tone looks like after-market though. It's not neatly done at ceiling level but comes down like halfway down c pillar.

Toyota FJ Cruiser ended worldwide production in August and hence will not make it as such to India!

I should have been more clearer with what I meant to say! Sorry about that!

I meant that Hustler could surely make its way to India!

Beautiful little vehicle.
Should do well here for sure.

Looks like their answer to Fiat 500L and Mini Cooper Countryman...

Suzuki Receives the 2017 Invention Award from Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation.

This is the third award, and the first time in 20 years for Suzuki to receive the award.

Don't know what's so ground-breaking about this car. Basically a Wagon R with retro looks. On the other hand Toyota's FJ Cruiser (also with retro theme ) looks absolute gorgeous. Why can't Suzuki make it more macho like FJ Cruiser, rather than making it a cartoon-esque. May be Renault should launch their mini bull-dog, Kwid ( a very butch-looking car despite its small size) on the lines of FJ.

I had a chance to see this cute little beauty at the Tokyo Motor Show. It's simply gorgeous with the right proportions.

I think just like Kwid did a disruption in the entry-small segment cars, there is scope for disruption for making small cars desirable & fashionable (for example, how the i20 did for the premium hatchback segment)

Maybe hustler type cars could be a hit in that niche segment.

The dimensions are just perfect for crowded city streets

Looks really cute

The front seats can seat 3

Simple 7 functional dash. The quality is nice and not cheap

Boot area that is OK for city runabouts
