I second that. This car would make sense for India. Small, stylish yet butch (well almost). If toyota can find a small diesel to power that thing, it would rock. Perfect Small Urban Vehicle (SUV) to take on the SX4 hatch if it does make it to India.

The rear on that car looks really bulky and a misfit, something like the Indigo.
That IS a peugeot alright. The rear might just be a total afterthought. The brief for the new 206 dictated that it look really aggressive to change Peugeot's image as a wimpy car maker. They must have fired themselves up as they designed the hatch/ small convertible. The sedan design exercise would have caught them in their quieter moments.

I think Mahindra should think of introducing Things like these...
The pricing should be high enough to only attract only real lovers..

The jeep wrangler is one of the best jeeps to maneouver on toughest terrains. if mahindra intorduces JEEP, it will be a healthy competition among SUV brands.

i dont really think the wrangler will compete with existing SUVs. it could, but IMO it is a segment that our car market has never seen before. it definitely cant compete with the existing WWII jeeps made by mahindra, nor compete with CRV/Endeavour/Montero etc. It will be an enthusiast brand and the base model wrangler (wrangler X) costs 20k USD (9 lakhs?) and it will be sweeeet to see these babies here selling at say 10-11 lakhs ...i'd never come back from the mountains !!!

I wish more MPV's come to India instead of the N number of B and C segment launches. We need more competition to the Innova - Ford S-Max, Renault Scenic etc.

Ford focus looks a bit like Fiat sienna from side and little like mustang from the front. Pretty good combination and would be great if it hits the indian shores.
