W201 spied again, coming soon - XUV500 | Launch in Dec |

Post by Bharat »

Mahindra W201 spied again, this time with minimal disguise. The car which is expected later this year will come with the 2.2l mHawk engine which gives out 140 bhp up from 120. Another version(twin turbo) may also be in the pipeline with 170bhp.
The pricing is expected to start at around 13lkhs and go to 14-15 lakhs.

I personally spotted the car today. here is what i felt

Managed to click a few pics which will be up soon. From what i saw, the car looked very sporty, has dual exhausts ( one on each end). The car is an eight seater. The car was being driven pretty fast and the pick up was damn good, had to work hard to keep up with it.
Loved the colour it was in also. The alloys also looked damn sexy. Overall, i feel if the car is priced right, it will open a new market which will do very well. The interiors couldn't be snapped . The car comes with silvery stuff on the steering, it was beige in color. The car was carrying 6-7 people. Each seat has it's own adjustable headrests. The vehicle had Xylo type lights but a bit longer and also a large High stop lamp.

Hmm.. W201 is suppose to be Global SUV, also MnM's launch product to enter US market. So either it would be launched along side MnM entry or could be around Diwali looking at its increased spottings in the recent times

Well if does go up till 16 lakhs then i doubt it would do that well, would go the Aria way.
Hope they get the pricing right so as to be successful.
I hope they have worked on the Quality of plastics on the interiors

it wont go d aria way for sure!!
aria was a flop because of the branding strategy (crossover) adopted!!
The w201 is a full fledged suv with almost all the features of a q7 and will branded so...hence will do exceedingly well...it''l start at abt 12 lakhs which will actually boost the volumes!!
aria has started doing well after reassessing the branding strategy from the past one month!
