Upcoming MPVs that could change the way people used to move
In India there is an urgent need of an entry-level MPV and three upcoming MPVs are expected to settle somewhere in the new segment they are about to make. The latest one to start the segment will be Maruti Ertiga launching on April 11-12. Ertiga price is believed to remain around Rs 7 lakh and with the launch, experts believe that the segment will undergo a transformation and the entry level price in this segment will come down to under Rs 8 lakh. Besides the Ertiga there are the Mahindra Mini Xylo and Chevrolet Enjoy also coming up soon.

These three MPVs will be able to challenge the dominance of Toyota Innova, new Mahindra Xylo and Chevrolet Tavera. Where Ertiga is expected to dampen Innova and Xylo sales, Xylo Mini will in turn affect Ertiga sales. The American MPV Enjoy on the other hand is expected to take on the two segment entrants quite well. Mahindra Xylo Mini price is believed to be around Rs 5 lakh and it is to be seen that whether the Mini Xylo certainly qualifies to be a true MPV or succumbs to be a small hatchback as the early spy shots of new Mahindra car are not very inspiring. Mini Xylo is expected to launch in India this Diwali.

The Chevrolet Enjoy MPV on the other hand is a Wulling based car and is expected to be the costliest of these three and is believed to have Rs 8 lakh written on the price list against its name. Enjoy MPV by Chevrolet is also expected in April. Thus, it is to be seen which of the two Ertiga or Enjoy makes it to this segment first and whether the late entry of Mini Xylo will be as fruitful as it is projected by car experts in India.
