At last...I can think of buying something from M&M than their agricultural design derivatives.
Remember being picked up from Ottawa airport in a Ssangyong Rexton and it was loaded to the gills.

The Korando (C200) seems to be the ideal. If they really hit the price which the program claimed, the sales are going just going to rocket!

The build of C200 looked very good.

MM should bring in a compact SUV similar to the size of Yeti at 5-5.5 lakhs with two rows of seat with options like 4x4 and added goodies for those who want it at extra cost.

Saw a Silver Rexton being transported on a truck on the Sion Panvel Highway towards Mumbai. Even though it looked a little quirky, was quite imposing. Definately a threat to the Captiva!

Spotted an embassy imported Rexton in New Delhi. The car looks are like it has come out from the Mercedes-Benz stable. IIRC, it comes with a Mercedes-Benz engine under the hood.

The face reminds me of an old generation E class, which just came out of a gym! Looks nice though.

Ssanyang motors have long lasting design+ Engine colloboration with Merc for their product range including their limo Chairman which is like old gen late 90's Merc S series, SUV Musso/ Rexton / Korando.

Korando and Rexton are good featured quality cheap Korean SUVs.
Ssanyongs new gen SUV Actyon is also good in its way.

In Kuwait Ssangyang-Rexton is sold almost at KD 5500/- equivalent of less than IRS 900,000/- for a petrol engine.

Mahindras are old generation India's license raj mentality greedy company when it comes to pricing their products.

I just came across this link:
SsangYong Rexton Spied With Scorpio Lights

There is only one photo in this page, that too only of the backside of the vehicle. But looking at the other cars around, it looks like India. However, the number plate is digitally masked in that photo, so we cannot tell if it a test vehicle or not.

nice pics.
it looks quite good too.
would love to see one up close
wonder when these will become available freely because it is quite possible that they will change the SUV story in India on account of greater affordability and access.

12-14 L for korando is very optimistic. Not that it is not possible.
But Mahindra would be using that price bracket for their W201. Probably they will place korando in the next segment 14-16 L maybe.

I guess the same regarding price, Does not make sense to bring in a competitor for their own vehicle hence I think the price difference will be significant, W201 starting at about 13L and Kornado at about 16L.
