First xuv was only launched with 2 models it's like launching only GX and vx variants of safari . I agree that aria was over- priced when launched , I don't know if monocoque construction is cheaper or body on frame . Taking in consideration that it was just Innova that time and no xuv the aria offered much much more then the Innova in practically everything IMHO the aria is much more well build then the xuv also . How much does the xuv 4wd drive cost on road you have any idea ? Aria top of the line 4wd is a true 4wd unlike the xuv and it has state of the art features which work seriously I have asked real world users about it .
Now mahindra just for a month kept those introductory offers and prices were increased by 50,000 to 30,000 on all models .
And to be very honest with you aria is more well build vehicle then the xuv including the interiors .
Now Scorpio ex is 7:20 lacs which only taxi guys use .secondly Scorpio lx model is just 10 or 15 thousand less then safari lx now iam sure you must have sat in Scorpio lx which has zero features ,no great space and no good comfort compared to safari lx . Safari lx gives you turn indicators, rear seat arm rest in middle, front passenger armrest , rear demister and wiper , sofa like seats , follow me home lights, space , comfort , claddings and above all 140 BHP power .
Does the Scorpio lx have atleast half of this features ? So how can you say safari is overpriced ? Check both the models their features sit inside both and you will know why safari is expensive then Scorpio infact in my view the Scorpio is expensive looking at the features and the value it provides compared to safari .
Strome will be expensive then Scorpio if you think otherwise then iam sorry you will be disappointed when the prices will be out.
So please when you expect competitive pricing be ready to adjust on features abd if you want features be ready to spend more . Because when a car maker launches a car with many features and less price the quality used is crap and then we all here on the forum will be first to jump on our toes screaming that tata is unreliable . For me the single din unit is also fine 2 din unit ,DVD and all other stuff are not going to add any true value in my life abs
,airbags, all disc brakes will ,and more then anything a reliable vehicle is of utmost important to me . Tata will price the strome nicely iam sure and there is nothing wrong if they ask for more money if they provide quality and reliability iam ready to pay and so are many others. And please don't get the duster here please compare it with ecosport not safari and Scorpio .
