My new love

It was love at first sight ;-)

General Motors’ Chevrolet Aveo hits Indian roads tomorrow, March 23 2006. Priced at a lucrative 5.54 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) for its base model, this premium mid-segment sedan will compete against existing cars in its category such as Honda City and Ford Fiesta, the segment top-two. GM, having a tough time to uphold their global number 1 position against Japanese car manufactures like Toyota and Honda, is aggressively targeting emerging markets such as India to maintain their revenues. The car is available in 4 variants with a deluge of advanced features. I particularly liked this color. :-)

In between I found this article about the history of Honda Motors. It’s an interesting read.

when i was in india during diwali time, i had visited GM factory nearby to pick up someone from there. they were test driving these new models on the superb highways painted with zebra color patterns, and I also have clicked em in my camera, will post them some other time. let me tell ya, those zebra pattern painted Aveo and other cars looked very cool on the road though :)

Japaneese always do it better....but the comfort driving an american made is different...having some one used both, I am kinda sticking to GM ones...but when it comes to maintenance and upkeep japaneese vehicles are the best....they respond better to the harsh above 50 degree temperatures in the middle east....

gorgeous.have always loved that color too

Sonia said...

hmmm, you already know how i feel about that car, but since i think you're actually gonna buy it (and in that colour) my lips are sealed! :D

tangy said...

Interesting! but dat colour is not so cool.

Invincible said...

The color looks stunning.

GM cars fall out on durability n gas efficiency against the japanese. The re-sell value is peanuts for a GM car !!

quills said...

Hmm...So your first love has been replaced by a faster, more hotter number eh? :)) I meant the Guitar. :)

But I guess anyone will fall for it. Real nice looking car. :)

ok, to each his own and all that.

but do not take a decision unless you see/test-drive it. its a common sight on the roads here, i'm suprised that the base model is priced almost 6 lax! it is cramped for space and its a chevy, which is more famous for its trucks. mmm...

MC said...

well i always had a concern about optra and now aveo as both are ultimately refined versions from the daewoo stable. but having used my dads optra for a while i think its pretty good. but frankly i would stick to a honda or toyota. ofcourse since its your dream, go get her! :) but think of changing it after two-three years max, coz people say they are not as reliable long term as well as there are concerns about its body strength.
