We informed you earlier that Mahindra is working on several new cars including a compact SUV, a premium MPV and an all-new premium SUV for the Indian market. If media reports are to be believed, the homegrown UV maker is working on an all-new premium SUV for the Indian market. To be positioned above the XUV500, the new SUV is expected to be launched towards the end of 2017. The new SUV – codenamed Mahindra Y400 – will be based on the LIV-2 concept, which was showcased at the last year’s Paris Auto Show.
As a reminder, SsangYong is also working on the next generation Rexton SUV that will also be based on the LIV-2 concept. The SUV will be a seven-seater car and will rival the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour. The Y400 will be developed on a new generation body-on-frame chassis, which will also underpin the SsangYong crew-cab pick-up. This cab will replace the existing Korando Sports pick-up and will rival the Ford ranger and the Toyota Hilux in the global markets. Read More – SsangYong Rexton 2017 – All You Need To Know
