    Another quirky looking model from MS which has design elements from all over. All little Estilo in the grill, beat-ish bonnet, i20 at the side and swift-ish rear end. But I know this will be a huge hit.

    Does it have a fully automatic mode also? In the ads it shows a D mode similar to fully automatic models along with the touchshift/tiptronic option
