The Stinger or Sting is already out. See a black one regularly in 7 Bungalows. Looks very good.

No I donít think that Mahindra Bolero is the most successful SUV in the market. Infact Mahindra Scorpio and Honda CRV are the highest selling SUVs. Everyday on roads I can see a good numbers of these cars on India roads but Bolero is rarely found.

You need to look more closely. The Bolero outsold the Scorpio 2 to 1 recently.

Sad that he is going by the numbers his eye see's and not by any form of market analysis or survey .

That is to heavy a price to pay for the CRDE heart. Is it really worth paying so much just for an engine upgrade?

Cost wise

@spitfire I do agree with you. Was planning on commenting on what nanopano said about numbers which he sees but seeing is not always believing.

Eg: I didnt know there were companies like Man, AMW which were selling trucks in india. Well i had an awakening only when i went on the mumbai hyd highway that i realised i was so wrong. Same applies to bolero buddy.

the commando and the stinger seem to effectivly block the air flow into the engine with the 4 lights and the redesigned front grille.
Funny thing is that i would have assumed that the "flaunt your attitude" look would have come with atleast a 4wd. but the dude clearly states that this is done on the 2wd.
