Mahindra XUV Aero unveiled. Looks futuristic, but some design elements are over-the-top, as far as my taste is concerned.

All these new cars from TATA are undoubtedly at World-class levels and apt to their new tag line 'Made of great'! Coming from an INDIAN company, this should make us all feel proud about it

Hope these cars make an impact on the normal Indian buyers as they have on Auto-enthusiasts, and reflect the same on the sales chart in the future.

Go TATA!

Attaching a BMW rear to a XUV front looks weird.

For me, it is a design failure. The front end is too huge for the rear end. Looks out of proportion. Sorry Mahindra, I am not a taker of this vehicle. The KUV looks way better compared to this contraption !!

The KUV looks completely inspired by the Tivoli and it would have been great if they would have retained the same size and proportions as the Tivoli for the KUV100 - that would have been awesome.
Any launch plans / dates confirmed for the Tivoli launch?

Yep! Chevrolet's designers have done a neat job with the Essentia sub-4m compact sedan. It may not be drop-dead gorgeous, but consider the very difficult task of converting the (visually) front heavy and (overall) funky li'l Beat hatch into a sedan, and one would appreciate the hard work done by Chevy designers on this nice looking sub-4m sedan!

The Essentia's rear bumper is probably the beefiest one among sub-4m sedans!

Thank you for posting the pictures. While the design is not a head turner, it looks surprisingly well proportionate and for me, this looks much better from side than the Ameo. Well done, Chevrolet

For me, it is Kite 5 > Essentia > Ameo from a design stand point of view, if we consider all the sub 4M sedans launched at expo.

Honda BRV looks nothing like the vision xs concept. BRV looks and is a Mobilio facelift with more ground clearance. Can understand the cost saving and BRV does look nice but it would have been exciting to have a new flashier mini suv.

Guys who have gone to the auto expo is there any facelift for the Brio and Amaze ?

Loved the styling though. Simply the best looking compact sedan yet.
I agree, Kite Sedan it must be, unless Tata says Kite Five like a Hi 5

Ah! This is one chubby looking Chevy and in a nice way I mean! Reminds me of the erstwhile SX4 from that side profile! though this one is a sub-4-meter!

Apparently, it is indeed Kite 5. My guess was wrong.
Wonder what the 5 stands for though.

Someone had posted pdfs of the product details earlier which clearly said Kite 5.
