    Half-hearted approach like this will not sell. It has to be a proper crossover like Ecosport.

    Not sure what they think of selling a car by just adding GC and smaller modifications to a hatch..

    And Crosspolo, Punto Adventure versions are also bound to fail. I am betting on my view..

    What manufacturers need is a properly build crossovers like Duster, Ecosport, XA Alpha etc. They can use existing hatch/car platform though, like in these success cases..
