I feel we are expecting too much from Tata. Till date they have never have been able to match their foreign and desi competition for QC. Plus the Aria is a 7seater MPV and RVR is a compact softroader, they may never compete directly unless the buyer is royally confused.

But as always there’s hope – HM-Mitsubishi is working on a licensing deal to get PSA diesels into the Outlander and the forthcoming RVR soft-roader and the same 2.2-litre engine could find its way into the Lancer. That will push the ninth-generation Lancer’s Indian launch to the end of next year

A question for the more informed, does this mean we wont see this until late 2011

Why would Mitsubishi want to get diesel engines from PSA. Mitsu themselves have a 156bhp 2.2L DiD diesel version of the Outlander. The engine which lancer and RVR will be getting is the 147bhp 1.8L DiD.

Is there any other SUV in the market with the same or somewhat close to its size? Gypsy? RIO or smaller than scorpio? Please compare and help me to fee the size. :-)

This is much bigger then a Rio or Gypsy(expect the height). if you look at the dimensions, it is as wide as any large SUVs. In terms of length it equals the likes of GV or Tuscon. Height is of course low (somewhat like Forester) which should only contribute to nice dynamics.

Yes, but Civic is also not much behind in terms of width compared to SUVs around.
Civic=1750 mm
RVR=1770 mm
CRV=1780 mm
Endeavor=1789 mm
Outlander=1800 mm
X-Trail=1765 mm

On the other hand
Gypsy=1540 mm

I was watching Autocar Show just now and they listed out a big list of cars for 2011.
I was surprised when they mentioned RVR is targeted about 10-12L with 2L CRDI and a 137BHP !

If that really happens, Yeti has a real rival. Then we are talking!

They have mentioned 15 lakhs as suggested price in the magazine. Anyway, I think RVR is 85% of Outlander and I expect it to cost around 18 Lakhs.

But there is no diesel outlander. The diesel RVR should change the equation.
You are right on pricing. It cannot be in 12L range for sure.

I dont see too much hope from HM if they run Mitsubishi in India. All these new model promises are just eye wash and they come very slowly. Where is Evo X? RVR etc is not easy to bring as it means big investment and HM is broke.

If they can assemble and sell the Cedia at 8.5 Range i am sure they can do this at a little more premium and keep it under 10. If they do it with a Diesel then they got a car that can be a chart buster.

It is after all a small cuv/suv
+1

In my opinion too they should price is between 10 -15 Lakh for a premium one. A regular model will be good under 10 Lakh

The problem is that, it would never happen. It will be always be sold under the "premium tag" which would push the price up North.
