    Mahindra certainly has new grip on contemporary design.
    Another, missed opportunity.

    This is ugly as hell, but who can deliver such a large diesel SUV in the world with modern features (not to forget good ride characteristics and reliability in a harsh environment) for a starting price of $12500? I guess it will be just Mahindra and Mahindra!! It may even have a better curb appeal in rural America than a Bentley,
    if they can have one.

    Looks absolutely cheap and Indian lorry style 🙂 The front has shades of Toyota and Ssanygong the rear is from roadside Dhabas. overall they’re definitely playing to the village market with that yuck rear and overdone front fascia. Massive disappointment after the Xylo, Quanto and Verito Vibe design disaster episodes. But I’d definitely want to test drive this one considering the fact the earlier Scorpio had damn poor ride and handling. M&M seems to have no clue about making a well engineered car, had a test drive of XUV500 and the less said, the better. With so much money at their disposal, they should invest in engineering like Tata’s do and not just rely on cheap design copies and marketing gimmicks.
