Just look at this amazingly awsome machines! Do they look any similar to there Indian cousins like Tata 207 or Mahindra Genio? The answer is no! If you ask me, I'll definatelly prefer them over likes of Pajaro Sport, Endevour or Fortuner! the answer being simple that they are lot more practical! There was a time when the only functional & affordable SUV/MUVs were Tata Sumo & Mahindra Bolero! of course there were some cheap fun like Maruti Gypsy or Mahindra Classic, but those were for purists! Those were weekend cars & not everyday cars! At that time Tata tried to introduce this segment with sierra! But this segment was too ahead of time & it's refinement & proper packing was a big issue! But to my surpries, no one ever think about this segment in next 20 years! & it was ford who thought of reintroducing this segment with Ecosport & now everyone is crazy for them & Market is soon going to be flooded with new entries in this segment! Similarly, Premium Pickup trucks is the segment which is highly niche in India! Yesterday, I saw a customized bolero camper in Mahindra's new "Live young, Live Free!" & It was looking super-cool! then I remembered likes of Ford Raptor & LR defender concept! & it realised to me that this segment has lots more potential! Another incident : before 6 months, I purchased a treadmill & bought it to home in a Tata Ace! & as a security, My parents told me to come with the driver & during the whole 110 Km journy, the only thought in my mind was, how cool it'ld be, if we had a Tata Xenon or Scorpio Getaway! Just like smaller SUVs, various attempt were made to established this segment in India! Like Tata mobile, tata xenon, Mahindra Bolero Camper or Mahindra Getaway! But again there was the same problem lack of refinement & lack of proper packaging! With our journy toward Nuclear Families & more practicality, I think this is the future! But, we Indians have very rigid mentality & it's really hard to change our concepts! So, According to my sixth sence by the 2020 or 2025 we will surely be mature enough to praise this handsomes & they'll creat a similar buzz like compact SUVs are making today! Share your views on it!
