WOW!! This is one of the most odd looking cars sold now.
Nice to see it roaming around in Mumbai.

Yup,I've seen this one a couple of times near Lilawati hospital,Bandra Reclamation.I bet this car must be getting a lot of attention on the roads.It looks much more striking than the pictures suggest.Will try to click some pictures the next time i see it.


Have seen this Nissan March but in the orange shade quite a few times around Bandra as well.Its an oddball as well.

Nope thats not Bandra.

Its a bit weird to see how people import these cars which are otherwise just regular cars in other countries.

i forgot to add.. its a flop in the uk cos its not slotted in the right price bracket and renault has too many models in the same bracket confusing the consumer. i heard its gonna get discontinued or something!
