New Delhi, Jan 9 :     The country's leading automobile manufacturers will flaunt their latest models at the Delhi Auto Show, to begin later this week. Market leader Maruti Udyog Limited will parade all the existing cars in its stable, including the newly launched Wagon-R along with Suzuki-2, a two-seater concept car. Also on the ramp from the auto giant will be the upgraded M-800EX and M-800DX, equipped with multi point fuel injection system (MPFI) so essential for Euro-II cars, the Esteem LX, Gypsy King and the recently unveiled Baleno. Maruti will also display the carry pick up, carry refrigerated van, Omni XL, and the Grand Vitara. Korean giant Hyundai will showcase Santro, while fellow chaebol Daewoo will exhibit Matiz with both the companies pitching their small cars as the vehicle for the millennium. The two companies are also displaying their mid-size cars - Nubira and Leganza in Daewoo's case - along with a concept model in each segment. Daewoo will also unveil its eco-friendly compressed natural gas (CNG) gas-based Cielo. Ford will tom-tom 'Josh Machine', the Ford Ikon, while General Motors will plug Corsa, its mid-sized car for the high end segment, along with a variant. Another recent entrant in the mid-size segment, Fiat's Sienna, is also set to vie for attention at the show. Japanese giant Toyota will flex its muscles with Qualis - the company is advertising the car's features as akin to a sumo wrester - while Mahindra and Mahindra will be there with its trendy Quadro, targeted at adventure lovers. It will also display Bijlee the eco- friendly, battery-operated, zero emission vehicle.
