    Companies should make available add ons to convert the cars to look like the concept version…

    Hi,
    Aren’t they carrying it a little too far by plonking the same 1.3 MJD from their hatch to the compact sedan to this C segment sedan? Yes, they would possibly tune it for more bhp, but when you want to join the competition with the likes of City and Verna, I expected Maruti Suzuki to do better than that.
    Understand they might have constraints sourcing the 1.6 MJD, but then isn’t that a compromise? How do you compete fully when the preparation isn’t complete?
    Thanks,
    Baliga
