great find Vibhu! It is a nice looking suv from MM. At least the concept is good to start with. In manyways similar to xover from tata.

Badboy great sketch I added my two bits if you don't mind did some close study of the contures and figured this could be one possibility it is obvious this design is moving towards the Mercedes M class & grand cherokee type SUV body design so here goes. if you see pic with door mirror the line suddenly has a chink in it. so here goes

This is a famous vehicle all over tamilnadu and some part of Karnataka.
By the way the vehicle seems to be have no front bumper or that also got broken.

The size of the boot door is humungous as is the size of the third row glass.
I didnt like the interiors. The center console is too upright and its time Mahindra did away with that gear knob stick jutting out.
There seems to be some form of information diplay screen in the top half of the center console.
Though there is speculation that Mahindra plans to launch this in world markets I dont see any arrangement for a passenger side airbag.

Thanks badboy. This is a production ready complete car as the fender and rear door (visible body parts) have high gloss metalic green paint also the dash seems complete/final when compared to the Xylo spy pics of incomplete dash right till launch. This car is ready now if mahindra goes ahead and launches sooner that wait!!

Badboy I am sure the car maybe taken to a nearby police station see if you can sneak in ASAP and get pics or see what is underneath that camoflage this should help us complete the sketch to more accuracy

The car seems to leaking some fluid. May be its the radiator.

The look of the car looks promising. I hope they don't make it look like the Xylo.
