Force Motors aims to cash in on the MPV segment boom with its own new luxury minivan. The new vehicle is based on the Mercedes-Benz Viano and will be manufactured under license from the German auto major. The yet to be named luxury eight-seater will be larger than other MPVs on sale currently.

 

It is speculated that the new vehicle will have features which are unheard of in the current MPV segment. Powering the vehicle will be the Mercedes-sourced 2.2-litre diesel engine which produces 139PS of power and is the same unit currently used in the Force One SUV. Prices are expected to be around Rs 10-15 lakh. Of course, if you are on this page, what you are really looking at is the top-end spec with all the bells and whistles.

Expected: End of 2013, Price: Rs 11-16 lakh

 

The Octavia was a raging success when it was launched in India. And now Skoda is all set to relive the success with the all new Octavia. From the spy shots, it looks more premium than the outgoing model but on the other hand it does borrow a lot of its styling cues from several cars in the VW Group. The Skoda Octavia will ride on the MQB platform that underpins the new Golf and Leon. It will be lighter than the second-gen model and will be offered with more premium features for the high-end versions, without compromising the affordable variants that made the car a success in Europe and India.
