JK Quality is meeting the customer requirements and it is a relative term,
people in India may perceive i10 build quality to be good but in USA and Eu
Hyundai quality is considered as a joke ( much below American Manufacturers ) because mainline average product line if filled up by Honda ,Toyota , Citroen , Volvo and Mercedes ( in europe )
In india these manufacturers price themselves out ot reach of middle class.
Incidentally Mercedese adopts same pricing policy in USA.

The perception of quality is quite different in USA and Europe and as same products are launched in middle east the bar is high ,

hey floks,
Bolero pik up what you get here is different mechanically than what you get abroad. Here the best pick up from M&M stable on bolero is Camper DX with IFS and A/C. I dont know if they have started offering P/S on it as an option.

The one in the picture has an IFS with 4wd and has P/S, A/C with CRde engine. Would have been glad if we could get this combo on camper DX in india

Needless to mention the pickup available with IFS and 4wd is not as good off road as it is on road. Watch this video. Limited axle articulation and no diff locks makes life miserable.

Not bad for the little Bolero camper 4x4. She really did quite well compared to some of the big bad boys like the LC and Nissan out there. Seemed a lot more agile. Yes, it does lack brute force (and quite a struggle in video 2), but it more than made up in its light weight and adequate diesel torque.

Quite true. The cars available in the US (even the base models on the cheaper cars) have a different level of quality. I would say that some of the newer cars like the Verna have higher quality parts on them.The Civic, Verna and the Aveo are cars available in the US & Indian markets,however I'm not too sure of how different the quality levels are in comparison.

So I'm guessing this is for the French Market?

Or could it be just an aspirational spend of Mahindra's advertising euros, at some European exhibition?




Hi guys,
this good pictures are from "Bologna Motorshow" wich was held in Italy about a month ago.
The vehicle look equipped for the french market even if
SMUR stands for (Servizio Mobile d'Urgenza e Rianimazione) also in Italian and means exactly the same!
This are demo vehicles from the exhibition in Bologna.
The M&M vehicles sold here are only equipped with 2.5 crde euro4.
Ciao

these small additions like a better alloy, bull guard, top rack plus a red color with black bumpers make it look good overseas. m&m should bring this variant to india.

I don't like the European name of Scorpio (Goa), it doesn't sound rough and tough like a SUV.
Mahindra is also planning to launch Scorpio as Goa in UK. I doubt this car will get the sucess, probably fail like TATA safari.

Definately the Scorpio looks great.

I wanted to know more about the trolly (sorry I do not know the actual name, perhaps Camper trolly). Are they available in India?? They always attracted me a lot and can be a great thing if attached to our Jeeps. Fully freedom and can spend night under starts quite easily.
