The most happening moments for the Indian car industry are nearby. History will be recreated on October 16 when the Maruti Alto 800 will be launched. This car is expected to help Maruti relive the success that it had with the Maruti 800. History is also in the making a day after it as two prominent SUVs are coming on October 17. The first is from Tata Motors – Tata Safari Storme and the other is from Ssangyong- Mahindra Rexton. Where the earlier is a remake and will be supplementing the existing SUV line by Tata, the latter is a new addition to the fleet of SUVs in India. The Rexton SUV is also important from the point of view that it will be the first SUV by Mahindra that will help the car maker enter the segment above the Mahindra XUV 500.

To be available in five and seven seater options, the Rexton SUV will help Mahindra foray into the premium SUV segment that is still untouched by the car maker. It is expected that with this SUV in, Mahindra will be able to register its presence in the premium SUV market as well and being priced most affordably, the new SUV by Mahindra is expected get more than expected response.
