BTW, what a ghastly colour

Yup, definitely the Ingenio. The MH 15 plates give away its from the Mahindra stable at Nashik.

The Tata crossovers spotted testing have all had MH 14 (Pune) plates.

Its been over 2 years since this was first spotted testing on roads, wonder when it will finally be launched?

Seeing the rear at first gives the Impression of Tata Crossover. But overall
it does look like Mahindra product. Apparently they delayed the launch to make changes in the interiors and some cosmetic changes. If priced right could be a threat to Sumo Grande!

Great find, doc! I think this is the same MUV that I had posted pictures of, from the expressway. What surprised me most was that he was consistently cruising at 160 kph. A speced-up variant of the CRDe? You bet.

Your pictures are far more detailed than what we managed so far. The rear, especially, seems to be geared toward providing maximum room to third row passengers.

The profile shows the second-row seats and the second-row window placed higher than the front row. An interesting make!

Hey Doc

Are you sure about the speed, cruising at 160 means he still had some more power to go higher may be like 180, if that is the case then I guess the Safari's (max speed of 150), Scorp (150), Grande (140), Innova (140) they better watch out, I just hope that it is good looking enough to be able to do well.

I am sure somebody who is in Nasik or ARAI pune can get a pic of the car without the camouflage. Tushky my man are you listening.

it was difficult to keep pace with this vehicle even at speed s of over 160km/hr. we didnt go above 160 as the swift diesel that we were travelling had just clocked 2000 kms .

The third row space is the buz word nowadays regarding the suv's.Grande has decent space in the third row.

well a friend of mine who works in mahindra told me that thre ingenio will be launched with 2.2 ltr m-hawk engine. i think the car must be having better aerodynamics [than scorpio] coupled with the punchy diesel engine making it go to 160km/h .
