its a great looker in my opinion..with great interiors...wow I like it a lot, I am not too found of hatch backs, but this is real good, and if it does come to india..I wouldnt mind having one, but its very doubtful that it will ever, if it does, it will be more like 10lakhs+

Thumbs up..

10 lacs? If it comes, it'll well be over 15 lacs. And it'll be a CBU anyway for a small market.

Since it had engine ranging from 90 bhp thats y i quoted 10 lakhs, I really dont think any car company would come out with a car with no power(90bhp) @ the price you suggested, but I would give it the 10-15 lakhs range.

no way , this car is coming to India.
there is no market for it. that too at 12-15 laks for a 90 hp car. no way.
and GM will take no risks launching another opel ( as none of the opel brands have succedded in India)

they did rather concentrate on the Chevy's now.
