Isnt the Sonalika SUV Rover-inspired? If I remember correctly, one of the family members of this group was a Team-BHPian and had shared some information with us previously.

Default Here's an old post by Sushant

Old TBHP Link

Apparently he re-registered. He came to the forum a year back and then vanished

Fellas!The Sonalika's new SUV is designed by DC.The looks are pretty clean and sober.No jazzy stuff here.Complete new front end with minor changes done to the bodyline and the rear.Interiors also basic and descent.

Hey any pictures ! This is DC first creation that will go into mass production. I'm eager to see what he can do.

i really wouldnt call the Bolero an SUV!!! its a tin box on wheels!

abt the Sonalia's Suv, i read recently in the Economic Times that they gonna launch it around December, between the price range of 5-6 Lk.

true...but i wasn't considering the Bolero at all. what i implied was something thats of reasonable quality at 5 -lakhs.

that should give both the bolero and the Scorpio a tough time.
