maybe this thread's title should be changed - after all 2010 is GONE now!

Perhaps we could call it the Mahindra World SUV thread or something.

Posting a closer crop!

Pics of Page 50 doesnt seem to have the bonnet-scoop! So, is it functional, or for aesthetics (old scorpio), or just for misleading the shape of the bonnet?

Cheers M&M for changing the bunny grill. In one of the pics in the previous page, see how cool the driver is sitting.

So far the shape and size looks impressive but what's wrong with those door handles! They look odd. Thumps up for the front.

Bunny teeth is there but seemingly subdued due to 1) all other slots to gets chrome treatment 2) shape of the grill is more curved.

ok, guys one here, got my annual review done and expecting atleast 15k(take home) hike from April. Does it makes sense to wait for this beast or is it better to go with Scorpio ? If Scorpio, then i'll be going for Sle model. Vlx is to expensive for me and I'm not fancied about those gizmos. I can consider stretching my budget to buy W201, only if it offers me a significant features, like 4x4 optional in base or mid model, ABS,Airbags and ESP.

I just saw this vehicle in Gottigere, Bannerghata Road heading towards Bangalore with blue wraps on it. I did not have a chance to take any pics as it had passed me as I was waiting to cross the road.

May be some other T-Bhpian will have better luck taking a pic of it.

Benchmarking vs the Santa fe for quality and spec is fine, but for pricing it needs to way better.
I guess Mahindra's branding is pretty good now also and it shows up in the sales charts. And this is one product that can shake up if priced well - there were reports in this thread that they are trying to integrate iPad to this car ! So I guess they have good idea of what needs to go in - but lets see what they have on offer.

I guess pricing is going to be in Aria territory and shud offer equally or better features. Santa Fe is a CBU right? So local production will give room for W201 to be priced really excellent. And seeing Mahindra's latest launches and pricing, there is no way to think they can get the pricing wrong!

GOSH ! Guess it Fun-to-Drive; they came all the way from Chennai. Or are they going to test it over Bangalore speed breakers? I stay in Bannerghatta road and will have my eyes open - But I travel in odd hours, so chances should be low.

In the UV segments, it seems like a chess game between M&M and TML. If the W201 is pitched against ARIA, then TML would bring the new Safari and probably price it a bit lower and the old safari would continue to either sell at the same price point or may be a bit less. Add to it M&M's plans on bringing Korando C and Rexton. Power to the customer

I do agree that M&M has a good reputation in the UV segment and they are almost spot on with most of their current products. My only grouse being in the looks department (both interior and exterior). Yeah, if priced well W201 has the potential to give everyone a run for their money starting from top-end Innova till top-end Fortuner.
