If there are takers for Force1 and Rhino, i am sure MM will find buyers.
Looks like the Oct17 release date was announced after they came to know of Strome release. But as far as i know, Tata has not officially announced the release date yet. Let us see. Looks like MM called for a fight with TM, and TM is trying to avoid the same, as the opponent is on a winning streak now!

I read the article in AutoBuild, and found the size comparison was up to Land cruiser Prado, which would make this SUV considerably bigger. I called the dealer and got the info that the launch is only on Metros and it would take few weeks to come to tier 2 cities.

As many of you say there is a gap in 17-22 lac to fit a full sized SUV, and if Mahnidra can do it, I might even buy it.

Yeti is over priced for a small vehicle, Endy is outdated, Aria cannot be an SUV, rest of them are above or below this. So this 5L band definitely has enough space for a decent SUV.

Saw a couple of Rextons at G3 motors, kandivali. One was white and the other one was silver.
Looked big!

Will it come with the Mahindra logo or the Ssanyong logo? I think I saw Ssangyong written at the rear.

Good pricing by Mahindra. Will definitely give the competition something to think about.
Mahindra should also ensure proper service and support for their new flagship model. A good alternative in the sub 20 lakhs price bracket.

, I was just searching and found the link. Looks like rest of team bhp is waiting for the arrival of Storme. In the mean time, Rexton may have just destroyed the remaining market for Aria top end

Manual feels a good option for me to consider. Eagerly waiting for a Team Bhp review on this now. Overdrive mentions it as good option in the 20 Lakh bracket. Would have loved to see spare on tail gate rather than underbody.

Seems like a killer pricing exercise. I guess this price point starts right where the top spec XUV ends.

At this price, did Mahindra just pull the carpet from under the T-Fort??

The manual is a good competition for not only Aria, but also for the Mahindra's own XUV500, as the price difference isn't much (~Rs.1 Lac).

I bet, few could opt for the automatic Rexton over T-Fort as the price & power output is better, & there isn't much to chose from wither on other fronts (barring Toyota/ Jap badge).

I think XUV 500 W8 4WD is priced @ 14.25 Lakhs ex showroom, so a difference of at least 3.4 Lakhs.

Let us hope other manufacturers give good deals now

I posted on the first page about my apprehensions with it looking like a Merc ripoff but am mighty impressed with the launched vehicle's looks. Looks great. Especially because it is from MM and it doesn't have an overdone design. Simplicity of the front has its own charm.

Over to the Storme launch!

I personally would never buy this new vehicle . Going by my experience on my XUV,service center guys are unable to solve basic problems in the Car and Its electronics after several tries. As much VFM as it may seem, I would not buy it just because if solving problems on their homegrown XUV is so tough, what will happen if the same occur in Rexton is really, a no-brainer. A premium customer hates going to service centers repeatedly and hence there is no point in investing in such a car, atleast for now.
Just my opinion.

Sorry my mistake you are correct, the difference is much to ignore ... . XUV is in safe territory.
