Could you please confirm the news source.

What I know was they are going to price it between 15 to 18

And the interior picture confirms its a five seater with hatchback like space for luggages.

Looks real nice, Sounds real weird, The name that is. Also seems a bit over-priced, But then again have to see it close up to judge on that.

Ideology behind the name Korando is great. Why not we think of such things in India? :smile: This looks like a practical SUV that India has been demanding for years, ever since Tucson and Grand Vitara proved to be a letdown due to little negligence by their manufacturers. Let’s hope the brand name of Mahindra should help Korando becoming a success and if priced slightly more affordable, it could definitely make as a win-win deal.

If priced at 15L would be hot seller. The looks of the vehicle is mind blowing. But await to see if Mahindra would rebadge the car with Mahindra brand logo and change the name.

Finally, the Korando has been sighted on the Indian land. The upcoming Mahindra / Ssangyong Korando was spotted testing on the Western Express Highway with MH-2 number plates, by Indian Autos Blog. According to Mahindra, Korando C and Rexton are two SUVs from Ssangyong which are apt for the market like India. Check out this thread for first spyshots of Rexton in India, snapped by a member of The Automotive India: http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...shot-ssangyong-m-m-rexton-caught-testing.html
