Our beloved HM Ambassador might be the oldest face of automobiles in India, but it isn't going to stay that way for long. The makeover is already underway for a 2012 reveal, Zigwheels has reported.
Interestingly, the new Amby will not merely be a cosmetic overhaul. There will be improvements made to its mechanicals, the report points out. The operation began last December and an universe of feedback from the Amby revival Facebook page would have come in handy.
The Amby's nose will shed its straight lines for an aerodynamic bonnet. The round, 50's-looking headlamps will be gotten rid of and in its place, wrap-around headlamps resembling the Suzuki Swift will be fitted.
The Amby's engine will undergo changes and an anti-lock brake system with aluminium alloy wheels will also feature. Leather seats and upgraded interiors will make the Amby's interiors more livable.
Besides this all-new Ambassador, there could also be a sub 4-meter variant according to media reports from last year.
More details are expected to trickle in during the following months, so stay tuned to Indian Autos Blog.
