No,there wasn't any engine change n the swift.All they had were modified versions of the swift which would never make it to the market!

I have posted the pics of MSIL and VW in their respective threads, but am posting the pics of Tata products here.

The Tata pavilion was most exciting of all, it had more new products and had Fiat and JLR with them, truely international type pavilion with dedicated official merchandise shop.

Tata Commercial vehicles - This time there were many companies with their new commercial vehicles but most interesting and good looking of them were Tata Prima.

Tata Aria - This was the most interesting and most awaiting product and it looks fabulous. The fit & finish was good and colors were attractive, the alloys also complemented the car and interiors especially centre control was prado like and this car is huge. The interesting part was its bonnet is sedan like long and not too sloppy like innova or Xylo. However interior quality was average but its loaded with features like integrated GPS, 6airbags, infotainment, 4X4 drive, traction control, ESP, etc.

Well i liked the chrome touches on both Manza and Aria, they make the cars look more upmarket. And there are no thick chrome strips except on grille & thin stripes looks good.

Tata Venture - This was very exciting vehicle as its supposed to be Omni/Eeco competitor and was very well made. It looks good, it has family car type interiors and seating position and has a diesel and also to have good pricing. I hope it comes soon but with 2doors as contrary to 1 in this shown vehicle.

Skoda Yeti - Its sure to have gained lots of attention at the expo but launch is still far away, dont expect it before 2011 as told by Skoda people. And expect the fully loaded diesel version to come here with 4x4 & 4x2 options.

Pics from Hyundai Pavilion.

There was nothing new at Hyundai except the i10 electric, safety track for kids and imode concept, the stall was pretty dull and boring. Also they fools didnt even opened their cars for public like i20, verna, accent or even santro as if they were Rolls Royce. Even BMW or Merc have opened their most of cars for public to have check inside.

Superb photographs here..

I just wish the Tata Venture comes to the markets very soon. Looks like a promising wagon. Also the Hyundai H-1. The Eeco on the other hand looks like a outdated model polished n kept up for display.

Hope too see cars like Hyundai Genesis making a launch in India. The Tata Aria should be a good rival to the Innova. I just hope that the interiors come to the streets when it is launched. No carry forwards from the existing vehicles please.

Thanks Neeraj and yes you will see those interiors on Aria when launched as it was production vehicle.

@ bluesapphire: That is really good news. Checked out the whole thread today.

Hyundai disappointed big time. Accent and the Santro making space? and

I've never liked any of the Tata products till date, but the Aria and the Vista Concept S sure look good. Instead of coming up with black roof and golden emboss, Tata should look at the Vista Concept S for a Limited Edition that comes out every year..

A center console speedo for Toyota Etios - very unacceptable. I never appreciated it in the Spark either. The sedan looks no bigger then the Ikon.. and they're pricing it around 10??

I could not see any pics of the New Mahindra SUV that is on cards.. can anyone please confirm this?

Suzuki Kizashi looks like a blown up SX4. The (original) SX4 hatch looks quite hot. Pricing around i20?

There were rumors of the Suzuki Landy coming in as the Eeco. Would have been an interesting car to have on the Indian roads.

Renault Fluence looks awesome - very French smiley17.gif

Polo looks refreshingly good to the eyes. Should make a splash in the market with its launch. The 1.6 diesel with 17" alloys is something I'd be looking forward to.

Did not hear anything exciting from Honda either. Their concept looks good only as a concept smiley2.gif

Fiat was dazzling with Linea and the Punto sports model looked very down-market (my views). Linea is really a class apart car, with its looks, dynamics and the interiors.

Did not like the BMW Grand Turismo.

I went to theexpoon Sunday and I also have many pics but the pics here are more better than mine all I can say is that the Camero and the F1 car were the show stoppers for me .

The best though out space was of maruti and worst was hyundais and merc (merc think that weare poor people and were saying move on fast I couldn't get a good shot inspite lesser crowd in the morning at 9am, they talk about safety and the whole place was cramped.

Aci stand looked deserted and lambo come on you should have got better coloured one people didn't look excited to see it.Thought the Ducatii1098 was really great.

[/quote'] Well to me Maruti Suzuki, Tata Motors and Chevrolet had best most interesting pavilions and yes Hyundai was most dull and boring. But regarding Merc i dont think the same may be this was with you because it was sunday otherwise i didnt faced any problems with them.

The Showstopper for me was the awesome X6M. It makes a perfect vehicle for Indian conditions. Its got the looks and the performance and crucially high ground clearance so that it can be driven on any Indian roads.

Well for more pics i have posted in respective threads like in Toyota, Honda, Honda 2wheelers, Bajaj, Chevrolet, Harley, etc so refer those if you are interested.

Now some pics from Renault - Though i didnt expected but Renault stall was quite interesting but they will come with their new products only in last quarter of 2011 and not with Mahindra but through their global alliance with Nissan.
