IAB Picks – 8 SUVs launching in India in the next 3 years

Posted on: Mar 11, 2014 - 5:09pm IST

Forget the sub-4 meter SUVs/crossovers we covered a few weeks ago. The cars listed here, in comparison to the compact SUVs, can be considered full-sized. These cars have a more rugged appeal, get seven seats, and some have the 4×4 option.

1. Mahindra Scorpio Facelift

The Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been testing for over a year now and we should see the car launch by the middle of the year. We can confirm that the refreshed Scorpio gets a redone interior inspired by the XUV500, while the design of the front fascia is thoroughly revised with inclusion of projector headlights. At the back, the test cars sport LED taillights.

Do not expect any drastic mechanical changes as the current 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine would continue doing duty on the updated Scorpio. The engine could be tweaked for better emissions and fuel efficiency.

    The SUV space in India has always been an area of interest with Indian car buyers and is only set to heat up with the plethora of launches lined up. I can’t help but comment about the Bolero though. This vehicle has debunked all set principles of product lifecycle. It is astonishing that it sells in the numbers it does even today after almost 15 years since its launch. Its not the best out there in terms of ride, refinement and even performance. But the mix it brings to the table is just what its target customers want. Just goes to show what the right product can achieve. Pawan Goenka himself sounded surprised when asked about the success of the Bolero in one of the interviews.
    Hats off to the Bolero and to Mahindra.
