Any insider info on launch dates? Mahindras have lot of new launches lined up. After the XUV and tuv we are now left with Tivoli and the MPV

Good problem to have on hand for M&M

Is it me or the car looks strikingly similar to the Skoda Fabia which is a like almost a decade old design.
Come on M&M, giving a blackened roof to a car doesn't make it futuristic.

Having said, that it is not an ugly design, its just mehhh... !

Is it just me, or does the car seem to be more like a hatchback on stilts rather than a C-SUV, ie Nexon / WRV vs Brezza / eco sport?

Spotted on a test run in Chennai with production-spec tail lights & black alloy wheels by an IAB reader.

I can see design elements from a few cars appearing rather prominently.

Rear - Mini cooper
Side - Creta
Front - KUV

These were the 3 cars which popped instantly in my mind when I saw the pics. The CUV also seems appears rather low slung, like the i20 Active.

The vehicle was EXHIBITED in the flesh (as it were) by the manufacturer at the AutoExpo where you could touch and feel it and even sit inside - how can this now be called a spy photo?

Spies must do some real snooping, IMHO

That apart, this is a very unremarkable vehicle that lacks any real presence or apparent USP. It is neither a large hatch nor is it a CUV. It is a sort of in-between vehicle sporting design cues from a whole lot of older hatches like the Swift, Fabia etc. Maybe Mahindra thinks some of the Swift's market presence will rub off on this one.

The international Tivoli was displayed during the expo. Same car is seen undisguised in the post you have qouted.

However, the Mahindra version has many differences and is still tested with camo. The tail lamp section for example - is clearly very different from the Ssanyong one. Interiors, features etc are also going to be different as the positioning might not be premium in the Indian market.

That said - Tivoli was first shown to the world in 2014 end, i believe. Mahindra is getting ready for a 2019 launch - when the world is ready for the next generation?

It is not premium in any market. Its a failed Korean car manufacturer - it can't even pretend to be premium in the Korean market.

Ssangyong Tivoli could be named XUV300.

Key Points:
1. Can come in two size's, 5 seater and 7 seater.
2. 5 seater will target Nexon and Ford Eco-Sport, 7 Seater will target Creta and Duster.
3. 1.2 Petrol and 1.5 Diesel mils. Both Turbo Charged.
4. Can come with ACC,ESP and 7 airbags.

Will go on sale this year.

The Tivoli should be just the 5 seater version and not 7 seater at all. The proportions of the car do not seem like it can accommodate a third row of seats even if they extend the wheel base. The car does not seem as tall as even an Ertiga.

Why is Mahindra obsessed with launching everything in 5 and 7 configurations? Why cannot they just challenge with a car for what it is? Just because the Tivoli has 7 seats it does not mean that customers will pick this over the Creta!

In fact in all the pictures I have seen so far, the Tivoli looks very car like and it does not seem to pose a threat to the Brezza and nor the Eco sport. At least in the current guise. Somehow the dimensions in pictures seem very small and almost like a hatch back.

Default Car caught testing

Hi Mods,

Found this car doing a (speed?) test in Chennai and managed few pics from my mobile, during a congestion, before he flew off. Not sure about make/model of the car and also unsure how to proceed here without any info except pictures. Please decide what needs to be done.

Thanks.

My suggestion for you is to spend more time on TeamBHP as you will be able to identify all the camouflaged cars at least in India, if not the world.
