The Indonesian Autoshow is underway and there are a lot of Indian cars that are on display there. Most of them have been kitted out and here are a few such cars:
Toyota Foruner TRD Sportivo
The Fortuner has been very successful, since its launch in the Indian market. The vehicle sales crossed 3k units last month, the highest the Fortuner has managed since it was introduced. Toyota doesn’t offer the TRD variant in the Indian market, however there is a sporty TRD Sportivo model that was showcased at the Indonesian autoshow.
Changes include a new grille, which has a TRD logo on it and a new bumper. The bumper now has a black cladding around the fog lamp housing which makes the vehicle look very sporty. In addition to that, there are new side skirts, TRD graphics, new alloys and a new rear bumper with a diffuser.
Datsun has showcased a Live concept of its hatchback, the Go. This Live concept gets funky styling, as compared to the regular model which is mundane to look at. It now gets custom headlamps up front, a new bumper with large air intakes, wide body kit up front and at the back, new 17″ alloy wheels, a massive rear spoiler and custom mirrors. The car also has new side skits, giving the Go a very sport look. This is certainly a good looking Datsun.
Suzuki Ignis G and S Urban Concept
Suzuki showcased not one but two new concepts based on the Ignis. One was the Urban S concept, which is an off-road styled version of the Ignis with an off-road bumper, plastic cladding all over, bonnet scoop and it has also been raised. As for the G Urban concept, this is more of a body kit which can be installed at a dealership level. IT ow gets a sporty front cladding, side skirts, a rear spoiler and a new rear bumper which gives it a more rough and tough look.
Hyundai Grand i10
While the Grand i10 recently got a facelift in the Indian market, the same was showcased at the GIIAS, however the vehicle shown had a more rugged edge to it. The Grand i10 shown has black plastic cladding all over, a new front bumper cladding as well which does make the Grand i10 look more sporty. At the back the car gets a new bumper with dual exhaust tips on either sides and a new diffuser, both of which increase the coolness of the vehicle. The car was also sitting on new alloy wheels.
Toyota Innova Crysta
Who’d have ever thought an Innova could be called sporty? Well Toyota has done just that with the Crysta. They have introduced a new sporty version called the Venturer, which is similar to the Sport Touring that is on sale here. It gets the sporty plastic cladding all over and a new set of body graphics, to give this a MPV race car feel.
Renault showcased the Kwid Extreme concept, something that is very extreme by the looks of it. The Kwid showcased here has a massive body kit to make it look more sporty. Up front, there is a new grille, with red lights, a new bumper which has LED fog lamps, a new splitter and all the plastic cladding the car has been painted in the body colour. The car now sits on OZ racing rims and at the back, there is a new spoiler and a new bumper with a diffuser and air vents on the side.
The Indonesian market has already got the facelifted Jazz, something that will only make it to India sometime later. Not only was the new Jazz showcased, but they also showcased a more sporty version.
