the Proportion of the Car.. looks Good for me . Maybe little Aesthetic Tweaking here and there would do much Justice to the TUV300

now it looks more like an Evoque!

This looks like Quanto was give a make over! What's with the 3-pot 80ps marvel!?

I hope the current Bolero lives on for some more time!

In their own video, the top silhouette teaser in red is what I believe is the original design from Pininfarina. but to get the Quanto door fit in they had to reduce the rake and that resulted in the oddball rear. Attaching a screen grab comparison of two images from their video.

Very well said. I think the urge to accomdate those jump seats at the rear is the actual reason for doing so.

I understand this is the less sporty of the two sub 4 metre SUV siblings by Mahindra. Shall surely go for a TD once it's available and see how it goes.

I think it's the empty space between the ears of the designers that has given us this. It's a cross between Quanto and Rio with a few other 'inspired' design bits thrown in.

I believe that the TUV300 design is nothing to be ashamed of - at least nothing in comparison to some of the "inspired" confections of many of the Italian design studios. There's far more incestuous plagiarism going on in Modena & Turin than anywhere in the Indian auto industry.

I like the design as it reminds me of Yeti, though I wish back was bit more straight and front a little more meaner. Quanto was so bad that this back is evoking bad memories.

Everything is boxy except for the wheels ! The paint quality seems to be good. The vehicle overall looks solid, but could have been more elegant had it been a little lower. Wondering if there is enough space to be a 7 seater though !

SUV is best enjoyed in a boxy avatar, and high GC. I love this vehicle (impressions may change after seeing in metal) however the tires seem to be puny, the vehicle would need bigger shoes to be enjoyed thoroughly.

The additional side facing 2 seats are for numbers sake, I doubt any one except a small kid would be able to use them. None of the major league 7 seaters except the Innova are comfortable in the 3rd row.

I am told the Quanto Yoga seats will make way in TUV.

Inspirations:

- Front grill - Jeep
- Rear - Quanto
- Seats - Quanto (I think the Yoga seats will be pitched against the Magic seats of Jazz)

- Side profile - seems to be fresh
- Lines and creases - various (a little bit disconnected)

Inspiration ? - Its said from Tank ! (I am sure it is only the solid built quality) - which I cannot doubt with M & M now, they are able to deliver a reasonable up market product with XUV, though their experience with Ford and Renault have not resulted in anything to be appreciated.

I would say, this attempt of TUV would not be bad.

Just hope that the yoga seats are made standrad on all models, unlike the stupid jumbled up variant of Jazz where its only available on the topmost variant.

The more I see the photos, the more I like the car. I guess itís a nice attempt by Mahindra for sure. I know its very boxy design but don't forget itís a Mahindra vehicle & it is designed that way only deliberately. Itís a Tough UV as they have already said openly. We should not compare it with the likes of Duster, EcoSport etc. Pricing will be the key now. If priced correctly it will sell like anything. Mahindra should launch it at very attractive starting price, may be 5.49 Lacs? It will make sure that they will get more customers in their showroom.

No clear interiors shots till now? Or I missed it?
