Agree, But what about the comfort part of Endeavour ??? Have you driven it on our rough indian roads ? Believe me , you won't find any diff between an Endeavour and Tatas mini trucks(one of the main reasons i strongly dislike this car) .

Cr-v again a very good small SUV (crossover) and does everything very right but it's a petrol and the FC is not more than 6-7 kmpl .
People who drive around 80-100 kms a day(like me) , ll 've to shell out atleast Rs.15-20000/month for the petrol(which i cant bare ,espically when you consider the fuel prices going up everyday ,even the thoughts gives me jitters) .

So unfort , theres no other option left for guys like me except to go for the Tucson .

14.3L for the Tucson is way too high.. Its not that big a vehicle.. I guess this is because Hyundai are importing it as a CBU.. Around 10L would be more like it..

On Endeavour, I had the pleasure (or misfortune) of being in the 3rd row seat while a friend test drove for a short distance.. I can tell you that is a recipe for ending up with a broken back/neck. Also, the egine is quite pathetic. It starts struggling above just 100kmph. Off-road, yes, it has amazing capabilities as long as you maintain a slow & steady rawl.

The Fortuner is sure to be priced above the Tucson.. It promises to be a great car but out of reach ..

cheers

Agreed with Beemer. The ride quality of the Endeavour is below par, but then thats the compromise you have to make for a true SUV.

Business Standard news is that the Tuscon should be 14.5L ex-showroom in Delhi.

The Tuscon was one Hyundai I was really looking forward to (after the Getz). As much as I like the look and execution of this car (not an SUV is it?) 14 large ones is just to much for too little. Hyundai have put their latest in direct competition with the CRV. Big mistake, and they are going to learn that pretty soon! 11 lakhs, yes...14.XX lakhs, NO!

It would make for an attractive used car purchase though!

I think it is possible for Toyota to launch the Fortuner in 10L price range, primarily because it is based on the same IMV platform as the Innova. Now since the TKM is manufacturing the Innova in India they might put one (or two) assembly line for the Fortuner itself. This results in a huge pricing advantage for Toyota Fortuner as compared to Hyundai who are bringing the Tucson as CBUs. Remember, you've got to pay hefty taxes and import duties for CBU imports. Besides, going by the maintenance records, since Toyota is manufacturing the vehicle locally and the spares would be shared with the Innova, I'd rather wait for the Fortuner to be launched before taking a decision. Maybe then i can bargain with the Tucson guys for a cooler deal or more freebies..

All Honda has to do now is launch a CTDi CRV somewhere around 12 lakhs and watch Hyundai cry in despair.

a compact-SUV for 14lakhs is too tall a price...
when you get the nice CR-V for less than that, it doesnt matter if its not really an off-roader as most people buying SUVs drive it in the city.

hyundai seems to be getting the pricing wrong nowadays,

they got it wrong in Getz,

they got both the looks and the pricing wrong in Elantra and

Tuscon is steeply priced even considering the CRDi engine, I think scorpio crde - 4x4 will make a much better and vfm alternative.

Not to mention the marketing - How terribly the Getz was marketed!

Toyota's new SUV Fortuner is going to be much better when launched at the end of 2005, when compared to all the existing SUV's. I'm sure toyota fortuner will be a value for money when it's launched. it's got looks, performance, pricing and service.
