    - Lockdown at Maruti Manesar plant continues. Workers without pay. Infact the entire management is without pay and it will not be cleared till the lockdown is not removed. All the documentation of attendance, working hours etc, is on the Admin systems, and till they cannot be accessed, salaries cannot be paid.

    - Toyota Launches Limited Edition Liva TRD Sportivo models - With 5.23 lakhs for the Petrol and 6.32 Lakhs for the diesel, its an effort to liven up the image of the plain jane looking models.

    No offense, the Liva does look much much better than the Etios, however it just looks too basic when pitched against a Swift, or a i20 or something similar.

    However also looking at the up-coming manufacturer racing series from Toyota, this would be a great boost to their sporty/racing image.

    i dont think so. cruze mt top model costs 1447373 in delhi. so unless, for once, hyundai has got driving dynamics spot on, cruze may be able to tide over this. there will be a dent in sales, yes. but nothing too threatening.

    Hyundai Elantra VS Chevrolet Cruze 2012 – Style VS Power


    As the title says.... Cruze will always dominate elantra for power and elantra being a new comer will definitely have better style statement.

    Verdict :-
    New Hyundai Elantra can triumph Chevrolet Cruze 2012 in terms of exterior & interior styling. But as far as responsive engine is concerned, Cruze has no competitor. From our side, it’s new Hyundai Elantra for a more competitive product package. (As a site says)
