Default Looks: Sumo Grande Vs Rest of them Poll

Someone had given a great suggestion of posting a poll to compare what looks better - Safari or Grande. I thought it would be better to expand this to include all MUV and SUV's in 7-10L price band.

Please vote only if you have seen Grande. Pls dont vote based on pics.

Well I havent seen the Grande, so I wont vote. However, the best looker of this lot has to be the Bolero. If not for the SLX frontend, it's almost a true-blue jeep. I love the retro looks of this truck.

Undoubtedly the Safari, especially when kitted with a meaty alloy + tyre combo!

Grande does not look good in any way. Safari certainly has a more refined & finished look to it.

For me its Safari.

I can fine some similarities between Grande & other SUV's. But for Safari its unique.

Its amusing. Safari wins hands down no matter how much they may try to refine the Sumo Grande in its present look. Even Innova looks better than Sumo Grande though Sumo may look more macho now.

Heh-heh, that's because no Safari die-hard will ever admit that the Sumo Grande has got the Safari licked in the looks department

Now I'm outta here before I get lynched

It has to be the safari..saw the grande in flashy orange color a couple of days back, and it isnt anywhere close to safari on the looks. The Grande looks too boxy and the specific color added to my distaste. Looked more like a candy van than a macho car to me. Let say the new sumo doesnt look as grande as the safari.

No way! Despite the so-called dated looks of the Safari, it still manages to look way better than the Sumo Grande.

Looks wise i prefer the bolero for it raw attitude.I had seen more bolero in kerela than the scorpio.Most of my highway trips ended in counting the number of bolero v/s number of scorpio and bolero won.Safari ,according to me have a dated look and nothing much changed in the looks department inspite of the several grill changes.
