I hope Mahindra position it the same way Ssangyong has positioned it everywhere else and also launch it with the Rodius badge and not the Korando Tourismo.
Xylo E9 is approx 11 lacs
Add a row more and little bit of space - 3 lacs
Expected manufacturing cost: 14 lacs as of today

It is expected that Rodius will come here in 1-2 years:
Inflation + Increase in Input costs like salary, steel etc -add 10%
Rupee depreciation Against all currencies: add 10%
Rodius will have at least 20% imported parts: add 10%
Bells and whistles of XUV5OO: add 10%

14 lacs + 5.5 lacs (40% of 14 lcas)= 19.5 lacs (approx 20 lacs)

Globally the Rodius is priced well below the Rexton in pricing. For example the previous generation Rodius costs 0.25 less than the previous generation Rexton. If M&M can localize the Rodius before launching it here, they can price it at ex-showrrom 14.5L (base) to 18L (top end) and pose a serious challenge to the Innova.

Milk Milk Milk

When There are no strong Govt laws like in western countries, any manufacturer would like to milk.

Secondly, there is no luxury MPV/MUV in the Innova segment. When Innova moves upmarket, Rodius will compete @ 17-18 lacs with a base model and Luxury features @ 20-22 lacs.

I agree, a real 3 row wan for large joint families. It would be one of those "third" cars which can be used for the rare occasions to go out as a big family.

I can see this to become a good canvas for DC to mod it into a nice RV as well.
