Default Mahindra Launching Ingenio

Read in ET about the launch of a new Mahindra MUV early next year. Any ideas/thoughts/spy-pics/information ??

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ow/1489711.cms

My guess is that this will be based on the scorpio platform, but somebody needs to confirm this.

I just went through the news. It looks like it will take a lot of time.

It certainly does look the part. Makes more sense rather than ruining the image which they had built up with the Scorpio in order to cater to the taxi segment.

Latest OD has spy pics of a heavily camouflaged Ingenio undergoing testing on Pune roads. From whatever little is visible in the pictures, the Ingenio will, in all probability, be a real looker. I just hope Mahindra engineers do a better job with the suspension this time. The Toyota Innova is one of my favorite cars, it will be nice to see another quality MUV on our roads.

from the pic it looks like a mix of tavera, sumo and scorpio(front grill) and may be little from bolero.
