Post New SUV?

I saw an SUV which was covered with stickers as they do with unlaunched under testing vehicles. I spotted this 2 days last weekend in a row near Konkan Bhavan, Belapur & looks like Captiva (But it is already launched).

I don't have any pictures but this had an MH-15 TC sticker. Any idea?

We are taking a wild guess I feel. How was it looking like? More like Innova or other SUV (Other than Captiva). I mean can you just compare to the running models of other manufacturers?

They pulled out of that so it will not be the rexton.

Mahindra has a history of buying old dies from Ssangyong, so it could well be a Ssangyong body on an existing M&M chassis.

There were two vehicles with usual paint and paper covers apart from 2 scorpios , it was late in the evening , at a petrol pump at belpaur where I saw them last week . To the best of my guess- it was ingenio as lights were looking like innova , even the shape of bonnet and rear side.

So its gonna be a Korean or Chinese car from M&M?

And the engine would be from? Or can it be the new MHawk engine in full glory as current Scorpio cant handle its full potential?

Sorry for being away from the thread as I am on a vacation. This car looked Tavera-isq frmo back and Shatrughna mentioned, had a from like Innova. Not sure what it leads up to, but hope we see the thing in real in a couple of months.

Cheers
