I think it may be from Ashok Leyland or some manufacturer who have R&D in Chennai.

Mahindra's usually test thier Vehicles in and around Pune. Had seen the Xlyo two years back during its test runs in Mumbai - Pune express highway.

October i had even seen the Mahindra truck on test in Pune during my Mumbai visit.

Mahindra's new SUV for sure. Badboyscad had also spotted the first sighting somewhere along the tindivanam - chennai highway down south.

Anyways, looks like the mahindra SUV.
Just religeously followed the post guidelines to mask the registration number only to realize that it is not applicable for such cases.

The number is TN-20-TC-P-0343.

May be the second silencer pipe is added just to fool people like us.

i believe Mahindra has a small R&D setup at Chennai, those tail lamps are carried from Scorpio (old generation) which continue to be used in Export Scorpio SC/DC vehicles.

I may look stupid. But it looks like something from HM or Mitsubishi stable. TN-20 belongs to Thiruvallur and Redhills RTO registration

And we have the HM factory in the former place.

Purely speculative: I have seen a few Volvo's in Gurgaon with TN 20 plates. Maybe a new Volvo SUV?

I did saw the same type 2 cars near Chinnamalai junction. Once I saw one a month back near Vandaloor Zoo and followed till Irumbuliyur bridge. Then that car went towards the lateral road and I was bound to enter into city road.

It can also be from the Hyundai stable - Sante Fe or the new Tucson.

This is the Mahindra SUV. The number plate matches with a recent sighting by a T-Bhp member harryindia - post 298.
