Fiat is working on reviving the Panda and in the next few months it'll be out on some international markets. There's huge demand for the Panda in Europe and Fiat manufactured the 1,500,000th Panda back in July 2009. It has been in production since 1980 and we can't wait for it here in India with the 900cc TwinAir petrol and 1.3-liter Multijet engine.

Porsche meanwhile is downsizing some of its cars starting with the Cayenne. The Cayenne Junior or Cajun will touch down in mid 2013.

Dacia is working on a Mahindra Xylo in Romania. Codenamed J92, the Dacia Monospace MPV could bear the Popster nameplate when it comes out next year.
