Wonder why newest SUVs designs seems have carry a car like shape.
By the way that design does not look impressive to me ( New Honda CRV either)

Looks like they bench-marked the PT Cruiser for this design.

more on the lines of the bonnet of the 1950s truck (also the old tata truck's front). sometimes i wonder is this the current breed of top automobile designers?

That design looks more like a bulldog !!

Some more designing blunders have been provided in the BSM issue for the month.

Guys,
i have seen this car on roads and it looks really better than this. Moreover, the manufacturer calls it XoverUV and SUV. But Its a really big car, I tell you in terms of size. The face actually looks more like its sis (or bro) Stavic 9 seater and Kyron mid size SUV. OMG, this guys wants to just churn out xUVs and nothing else! Juz look at the model line up...

1. Musso (Benz Engine/Gearbox)
2. Musso Sport
3. Stavic
4. Kyron (may be Benz Gearbox)
5. Actyon (may be Benz Gearbox)

Cover the bonnet and the grille, and it could pass off for an Indica.

Default Re: New SUV from Ssangyong

There has been very little news about future products from the Ssangyong stable after the takeover by M&M. Now there are reports about a small crossover concept being showcased at the Frankfurt motor show.

First impression is positive. Almost like a shrunk LRV + Mini Cooper offspring. None of the wild styling seen in previous Ssangyong SUVs. Definitely has potential..
