Well the project was allegedly in collaboration with MG-Rover. Since that entity has folded up and we havent heard any pre-launch noises from Sonalika, things dont look too good.

you mean MG-Rover has folded or the collaboration ? but wasn't the Sonalika SUV article quite recent in the papers ?

I think I just saw it in heavy rain in Koramangala. It looked like a Qualis but I found the rear lights looked blotchy. Badges similar to Mazda. Looks like Qualis meets Tavera - nothing much

Some pictures of the Rhino are located in the Official Auto Expo thread on page 6 and page 8.
The press release says that the Rhino will use a 2 litre engine sourced from HM. In all probability, it's the 1995cc Isuzu diesel.
Engine parts from Rover? Hmmmm... CityRover?
