So does Foday have another luxury SUV up its sleeve that Force can kit out with an ancient Daimler engine and claim its tuned by Lotus or anybody else??? Urgh, this seems like the Premier Rio plan. I'm all for chinese takeout but to call it a premium product seems a bit far fetched. I personally would be petrified to take this baby on this expressway, 140 bhp or not. And I like the way Firodia says the DNA of the engine is similar to the C class. Hell, every engine has a bit of the original internal combustion engine that Benz originally developed but I don't find too many people talking about how their cars have a Mercedes connection. Maybe Mahindra can do the same

I saw this SUV in flesh , unfortunately didnt have the camera in hand . The interiors are very very similar to the scorpio but really really really bad plastics and that too in beige , a horrible shade of beige .

Tyres - Apollo

Alloys were worse than the worst chinese brand . I dont think this SUV is gonna make a big mark . Unless its priced very very low against its competitors , which I doubt .

Question Re: SCOOP PICS!!! Maruti Suzuki's new 7-Seater MPV

Mods can move this post to the appropriate thread as I could not find images that resembled the ones that I have taken.
I found this test vehicle with a Maharashtra registration number yesterday while we[me and my friend] were returning to Bangalore from Nandi Hills.I requested the test driver for his permission for taking some snap shots of the vehicle but he politely refused!I managed to take two snap-shots of the rear end of the vehicle from my two mega-pixel phone camera.
I understand that this is not a Maruti as Maruti does not have manufacturing facilities in Maharashtra but this vehicle did not have the company's emblem nor did it have branded alloy's so I have no Idea about it's manufacturer.

Post Force Motors SUV to be launched. EDIT: Spotted again. Pics on pg.18

Hi Guys

On my way back from Gurgaon this evening, I spotted a test car on airport road. Though I could not recognize it instantly but it gave an impression of being the new tucson initially but later I thought it could even be the new safari. My friend took some snaps but could not get a proper angle picture as they were moving quite fast. Numberplate of the car was red colour and text colour was white (MH14 128E). I am posting some pictures here that we took. May be you people could tell what car is this.

Mods: If this type of thread for this car already exists, please merge my post within the existing one.

Default Re: Test Car Spotted (Probably New Tata Safari)

I think this is the upcoming force motor's suv. Let me search for the thread.

EDIT: Ah, got it. Here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...s-pg-15-a.html

Check the reg numbers. Same.

But, the vehicle in the last pic, was it with the SUV?

Looks like a Tata Motors product, one among them seems to be a pickup. Chances of being a Force product are bleak.

To me it is pretty much the Foday Explorer, the Force Motors SUV. The headlights and the silhouette are the giveaways here.

Did you manage to sit inside and check for space too? Cmon Force, make sure you have a base model to undercut the price of Scorpio by couple of thousands. You may not stand well against the likes of Scorp / Safari. Please price it well and don't go the discounts way.

thanks Spike.

i would say if you go 2-3 pages back on the thread, you would see the chinese OE website and the amazing similarities the two vehicle in the question have!

i wonder if we are being flooded with Chinese vehicles now.

i would prefere a Scorpio over this Force motor explorer, anyday.

even the Peugeot 408 is made in china and would be assembled in India.

so is the case with Premier Rio!

what next?

Even assuming this SUV is competent, I'm wondering how much the population would take to buying a Force Motors product, with its current anonymity in sales/service network of personal automobiles ?

Press Conference on 23 May to announce the name of the SUV. And apparently, after the 'premium SUV' they are going to launch a premium MPV in the next two years. Wonderful isn't it how a Chinese product can become premium? Next stop, China to launch the djpeesh coupe :P
