Mahindra did put up an impressive show especially with its SsangYong products at the Auto Expo. There were numerous vehicles displayed by the domestic utility car manufacturer, but most impressive of the lot were the SsangYong products Rexton and Korando E concept. However, Mahindra might like to take a while before it launches the Rexton and Reva NXR electric in India, which seems to be more around Diwali time. The rush of new car launches did not give us breathing space to get into the details of many products and let us see what Mahindra brings us with the Rexton SUV. The 2.7 L diesel engine is just ideal for the imposing stance of the SsangYong Rexton with a 182 Bhp and 402 Nm peak power and torque. And Mahindra’s idea to place the Rexton against Ford Endeavour is not bad as ruggedness is dripping from every angle as we see the four-wheel drive SUV and it is a shame if we are compromised with anything lesser than that from a Mahindra product.
These days, there is great demand for Sports Utility Vehicles also known as SUVs in the country. The bigger families find SUV much better and comfortable than hatchbacks or sedans. At the Auto Expo 2012, New Delhi, the sports utility vehicles were victorious in outshining other cars. Auto giants of the car market comprising of Ford, Mahindra and Mahindra, Renault, Premier and Maruti Suzuki brought in their masculine, proud and rugged SUVs for the hopeful customers. Ford launched in its most expected compact SUV, Ford EcoSport, whereas Renault showcased Renault Duster, which is expected to be launched in the month of April 2012.
