    When they are going to launch it… they said that they will at the end of May then June , after that second week of July and now First week of August. When I asked for their dealer, he told me that they will launch it after six months. Who is correct I don’t know but whether they are making fool ?

    The front grill of the new Marutis like this and the new model of Dzire are not good. Has taken away the trendiness and makes it looks oldish. Can not be a competition for Ecosport on the looks department.
