      When I checked teh rexton website, it shows price list only for Delhi and Maharshtra(Mumbai). So does it means its launched only here. Not in other states now. Or it may be website error.

      Below is the brochure attached. From pics It looks a 5-seater SUV unlike Fortuner

      Doesn't look like a website error. It looks like launched only in Delhi & Maharashtra at the moment.

      Looks like Korando's pricing will be similar to XUV5oo

      Rexton is a 7 seater. It's longer than Fortuner and it's a big vehicle.

      Yes. My mistake. Then taking a closer look i saw that there is actually 3rd row. I love the recline angle in all 3 rows. Will be very comfortable to sit

      • Exteriors

        For an SUV that is both longer and wider than the already large Toyota Fortuner, the Rexton lacks the road presence that even the marginally smaller Pajero Sport has in spades. That’s down to the facelifted Rexton’s sloping bonnet, gently peeled-back headlamps and curvy grille, which lend the front a certain softness.

        Despite that, however, the car manages to look a whole lot better than the model it replaces and the overall styling, especially at the front, is quite contemporary. That chrome-rich grille gives the front plenty of flash, the headlamps with their projector pods are smartly detailed, and those heavily flared wheel arches give the design much needed muscle. Even the front bumper is well styled, and comes with black plastic cladding on the lower portion to camouflage some of the car’s bulk. Further back, the wraparound rear windscreen looks quite neat and injects much flair to the tail section. The recent makeover also brought with it attractive jewel-effect tail-lamps and a restyled tailgate with the Rexton name embossed on it. And there’s no complaining about the Rexton’s first-rate paintjob and tight shut-lines that are far superior to any car Mahindra has built till date.
      • Interiors
        Open the Rexton’s doors and you will find that the cabin looks plush, everything appears solidly put together, and the leather seats with their soft cushioning and smart stitching are really inviting too. Panel fit is excellent and the soft-touch plastics on the dashboard-top feel like they’re from an expensive German saloon. It’s also quite practical, with bottle holders on the front door pockets, a large box between the front seats and five cupholders elsewhere in the cabin.

        The Rexton also comes loaded with features like a touchscreen interface for the audio system, DVD player, Bluetooth telephony, satellite navigation, sunroof, climate control, rear parking sensors, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control and steering-mounted audio controls.

        However, it’s when we move to the back that the Rexton’s cabin loses some points. For starters, the slightly low-set seats and high floor compromise the seating posture to some extent, though it’s still better than an Endeavour. The cabin also isn’t as roomy as the large exteriors lead you to believe.

        As for the last row of seats, the less said the better. You sit virtually on the floor with your knees pointing towards your chin, and with no headrests for these seats, your neck is left unsupported too. If there’s some consolation, it’s that the rearmost section gets a pair of air-con vents with their own blower speed control.

        With the last and middle-row seats folded flat, there is lots of room to store the largest of suitcases, but the high loading sill and the luggage bay’s false floor mean loading heavy items will require solid muscle power.
      • Engine (AT)
        The engine is mated to a Mercedes-sourced five-speed automatic transmission.. The automatic variant also comes with permanent all-wheel drive, and this allows the Rexton to get off to a clean start and post a quick 0-100kph time of 10.92 seconds.

        However, the engine makes quite a racket, one that gets progressively louder as the revs rise. The nine-blade radiator fan is responsible for most of this. Then there’s the slow-witted automatic gearbox that takes much away from the driving experience. You can change gears manually via buttons on the steering wheel, or alternatively, a switch on the gear lever.

        While the Rexton Auto’s 11.18kpl ARAI-tested figure makes it quite the diesel-guzzler, its power delivery is nice and linear, and for relaxed driving in the city or on the highway, the engine should cope well enough.
      • Suspension
        Weighing in at around two tonnes the Rexton is just as heavy as its body-on-frame contemporaries. Its suspension, which is a combination of double wishbones in the front and coil springs and a live axle at the rear, is also similar to what you’ll find on the Fortuner and Pajero Sport. Sadly, the ride and handling don’t match up to the Fortuner, let alone the dynamically superior Pajero Sport. Driving around Mahindra’s test track, we found the Rexton too softly sprung to derive any pleasure out of driving it with enthusiasm. Steering feel, for one, isn’t great, there’s an irritating frontal pitching motion when you so much as dab the brake pedal, the ride never feels settled, and there’s lots of roll at the slightest of provocation. However, the high-profile 235/75 R16 tyres do absorb a lot of the road shock and, in that sense, work admirably to shield you from smaller surface blemishes. To its credit, the suspension works without much noise and isolates you well from the happenings underneath.

      Saw those pics on NDTV. Looks amazing. But as per some reports of earlier version it guzzles fuel like anything. This might be something to watch out for.

      as expected..the 3rd row is a joke. If you have to punish somebody, relegate them to the 3rd row.

      why do manufacturers even bother to call it a 7 seater?
