9 new car launches coming up. Any game changers? Whats your pick?

Recommended Posts

No game changers but these 2 merit a response-

ML 250 CDI - Great pricing by Merc considering its a size bigger than the Q5 yet priced similarly

Manza club class- Feature laden. Makes it an impressive package. No driving pleasure though i wouldnt buy a manza if i wanted driving pleasure. Very spacious, comfy & now loaded. Great package.

Just heard that M&M is uping the production of its REXTON by 500 units per months, starting as early as this month ,in order to reduce the waiting period of the vehicle.

Did anyone on this board book one?

my feelings exactly,

who is buying this vehicle and if bought, where are they keeping it , coz i dont see them on roads to justify the need for a production increase.

What waiting list are they talking about ? it must be the list of all dealers waiting for any customers for this vehicle, i suppose.

i wont believe they are actually selling until i see some actual sales numbers.

Rexton has sold almost 200 units in December.

That brings it to almost 2nd position in terms of sales after Fortuner (which is way ahead).

With the pricing it's got, M&M sees more sales from it and hence increase in production capacity.

Saw couple of Rexton's in NCR region yesterday but was not very impressed from it's exterior design.

Both Rexton and Storme seem to be doing good based on the sales figures.

Also i have seen my first Rexton and i did not have to go far ,my neighbour has bought the RXT AT variant , it looks good in the cherry red colour.Its more classy looker than the butch SUVs we are used to seeing i.e Fortuners,Endevours

3000 Storme delivered? I havent seen a single Storme on road in Mumbai. I doubt those figures are really accurate.

Im sure these numbers are from North. Storme was launched in North India much earlier than in rest of the Country. I've seen quite a few Storme's on road. Now that's altogether a different story that I do not like the looks the vehicle one bit!

An update on Tata Storme. 3000 delivered and another 2000 booking (to be delivered). Storme is yet to be delivered Pan India. Waiting period 4-6 weeks. The All India launch is expected to be complete by February 2013.

Storme has been delivered mostly in North India. If you go to the Delhi/Punjab/Haryana area you will see lots of Stormes. The launch in other parts of India took place only recently (Some parts its still not launched). Deliveries are still taking place.

LOL! We Indians love to laugh at our own brands dont we, even when we know the facts. Now if its a phoren brand ...any crap by them is admired.

Yes , Delhi has its share of both Rexton and Stormes now.Stormes have been spotted in abundance here since December though its only now i have begun seeing Rextons here in small quantities.

As they say SEEING IS BELIEVING
