Note - There are no visuals today on B2B due to a technical problem. We will be back on Monday with a video.

Moving on to the topic, do you feel that there is a visual benefit in adding faux off-road kit to a hatchback, or mounting the spare wheel on the tailgate? Are they visual enhancements in your perspective?

We have a silent faux-crossover in the Skoda Fabia Scout today in India, and not many have been spotted on the roads. We believe Toyota will introduce a similar version in Brazil on the Etios so there are chances of an Indian entry. The CrossPolo is an option VW India may explore in the future, its a raised Polo with body claddings.

Do these extra body fittings help in energizing a car's looks? Will these changes make you change your mind about buying what otherwise is a not eye-catching design?
