My first bike was a Hero Honda. My first and second car was a Maruti. They were safe buys. And they turned out to be great and reliable.
And I love it. I was tired driving around the two Maruti Suzuki Swifts I had. I needed something more. And I got it today. Fully loaded baby.
I have been pretty frustrated with the concept of government owned bodies competing with private entities.
I do not understand Maruti’s strategy. They already have tons of cars in the price range of 2-5 lakhs. Way too many models ranging from Maruti 800 and Alto to Maruti A-Star to Maruti Swift.
Maruti Suzuki has already started advertising their upcoming model Suzuki Ritz through Google AdSense. This is pretty interesting. :)
Today was another day spent driving in and around Delhi city.
I keep hearing reports that Suzuki has been claiming that the upcoming Tata’s Rs. 1 lakh car would not be safe enough for the drivers in the Indian market.
Agreed it would not have the latest safety features like airbags or traction control. But it would definitely have seat belts on all the four seats.
Something even Maruti 800 and other products from the company never had until the government made them compulsory.
And have you ever traveled in a Maruti Van? The Omni model from the same company. How safe do you think it is?
This looks like a possibility by next year. I love the shape of this car. Even better looking than the Maruti Swift…
