All these days waiting for a superbly style world class crossover and what we het is DC designed kinda model.
The ugly bugs bunny grille has given way for this contraption and the bumpers design is far from eye pleasing.
Pray that this is not the production version.
Think Mahindra has learned the wrong thing from Ssyanyong.

its mahindra ofcourse. I could say it on noticing the bumber settings. At the point of contact between bumber and the fenders , the bumper runs wide like in a scorpio. QED

AAH, somehow this is looking so out of place and mismatched.Why such a wide bumper on the lower side?It will get scraped on many occasions.Also the ORVMs are looking way too small,look closely and even the color doesn't seem to match!Something fishy?

it is completely new and has a great deal to be said for it in a positive sense. of course it does have some niggly bits but I believe most of these will be fixed prior to launch. I speak with conviction because I have been part of the specially identified select consumer base who were called in to check it out and share relevant feedback and impressions. However am not at liberty to reveal greater detail as to do this without permission would be a contravention of the "gentlemen's understanding" that I have with M&M.
Sorry for the wrong Comparo.

And of the 2 spy pictures you have posted, the one on the left is not the W201. It seems to me like some Hyundai, could anybody please confirm the vehicle?
Yes, the Ssangyong Korondo is leagues ahead interms of looks when compared to the pic of the so called W201.

A picture of 2 SUV's with camouflage does not prove anything. There can be so many SUV's with similar side profile. If I were put the captiva pic in there then would it make the new M&M a re-badged Chevrolet Captiva?
I admit my mistake Vid and sorry for the blind accusations made by me.

True Sid, I think i have the wrong pic of the product, could you confirm, i know M&M is not that bad at designing when it comes to their pet project called the W201, please do your usual best by posting the real pic of W201.

For the last few days I was actually hopeful of a really good looking W201 based on the last set of test-mule pics but if this is correct, am pretty lost on words.
That was the kind of Hype we had created.

Lets wait for the Actual W201 pics.

On a serious note, M&M really really needs to hire some half decent designers. I know looks are subjective, but I am sure even a community with diverse opinions like ours will agree that the recent [in the last 2-3 years] launches from M&M have been eye sores, to put it mildly.

Cheers,
Vikram

Pavangaru,

This is definitely a MM product. May be the test mule with one of the different iterations for the front design. Overall the other part of the SUV looks good.

Waiting for this one to launch.

Oh my Oh my. M&M what have you done. lol.

Looks like M&M engineers spent too much time with a CR-V and then went to DC.

The bumper looks horrendous.

The 'muscles' on wheel arch ( on the black W201) should have carried on to the rear doors if im not mistaken, that whats seen normally. If thats' the case then both the photos arent the same. The open rear door of the white 'W201' shows no such 'muscles'.

the pic is probably a spy pic of one of the test proto mules.
the real pre production proto mule looks rather more accomplished

lets not get into too much speculation basis this pic. better to wait for the real thing - because it will be worth waiting for.
ref the price and VFM etc I am not commenting now - though I am sure M&M have learned from the Aria's mad wannabe premium stance.

Guys it is just a teaser from M&M, they are trying to create the hype, I guess "The heat is on".

All of a sudden Scorpio looks better :-). This one looks like the vehicle from old HH Hunk ad! Hope this is not the final product.

Guys I honestly feel that this is a PS.Look closely at the air-dams or whatever it is called below the headlamp it protrudes out on the wheel arch its just a straight flat thing instead it should have been curved accordingly with the body flare.Secondly look closely at the headlamps one has got a projector and the other one hasn't.
