GM’s minivans for India spied again

     We in our earlier post had posted some spy pictures of the GMs mini vans being tested in India. GM in association with China’s SAIC will bring in its minivans to India.

     Of the two mini vans, one is the Maruti Eeco challenger. The Eeco challenger is similar in dimensions with Eeco and come with flexi seating arrangement. Being under 4 meters in length it too well be eligible for small car tax sops. In China, this vehicle is called as Hong Tu and we are sure GM will come up with a new name for it in India. The Hong Tu is powered by a 1.2L 85 bhp petrol engine which GM might continue the same in India. A possibility of GM’s new 1.0L diesel engine cannot be ruled out in a later date.

     The other minivan is the Xylo competitor which caters to the luxury mobility segment. It too will come with flexi seating arrangement. This vehicle is named as Hong Guang in China and like the Hong Tu, the Hong Guang will also bear a new name here in India.

     The Hong Tu and Hong Guang will expand GM portfolio of having a vehicle in all the segments in India. The Hong Tu and Hong Guang are expected to be priced at Rs. 4 lakh and Rs. 7.5 lakh respectively.
