Mahindra Rexton to be launched in INDIA

As per sources M&M have confirmed that the much awaited SUV from SsangYong, the Rexton has been decided to be launched during the Indian festive season, Diwali.

We have to wait and see if M&M launches the old model or the facelift Model and also with what name the vehicle is launched.Have to wait to see if launched as SSangyong Rexton or M&M SSangyong Rexton.

The Rexton has been said to be coming with the Mercedes- sourced 2.7-litre, in-line, five- cylinder Turbo diesel engine, mated to a five-speed automatic tranmission that produces 165 Brake horsepower, which is in fact lesser than majority of the players available in the segement. This might also come in a five-speed or Six Speed manual transmission.Although, the engine in the Rexton is an in-line layout, expecting a good fuel economy. It will be coming in all wheel drive (AWD) option,and the all required goodies like Hill Decent Control,Cruise control,Six Airbags,Bluetooth connectivity and all the features available with M&M XUV 500.The expected price range is 16-18 lakhs which will be direct competitor for Fortuner,Captiva,Endevour,Santa-fe.
Here are some pictures of the Rexton(both old and face-lifted)

The facelifted Rexton looks amazing and would not be a very bad option even if priced at 20-22 Lacs on road.

I somehow feel M&M would name it as Mahindra SsangYong Rexton or maybe SsangYong Rexton by Mahinda (Logan). I would prefer Mahindra Rexton.

I have seen both old and new in Australia the new 1 looks better then old but all depends on pricing too .
Even i feel new one has a much palatable design than it's predecessors', hoping Mahindra prices it well and take on the mighty Fortuner

But whats expected price range of Rexton, I think I have read it some other place that Rexton is of price bracket 22 lacs (I may be wrong in saying this). So the competition of Rexton is with Fortuner not Storme. [;)]

I doubt how many would buy M & M for 20+L [thinking]. Chances are it may turn out to be M & M version of Aria. [lol]

Launch on 17th October: the same day as Storme's launch[surprise].

Can anyone smell something fishy here? Mahindra wants to distract people from Storme's launch! This tells me one thing though Mahindra are worried about Storme,they know if TATA prices it well then perhaps R.I.P to good ol' Scorpio,and hence they are trying their level best to divert attention from Storme.
