Ashok Leyland Stile MPV launch on October 8

Ashok Leyland Stile MPV launch on October 8

Ashok Leyland has officially announced that it will launch the Stile MPV in the Indian auto market on October 8. It will join the series of vehicles to be launched during festive season to attract more buyers. The vehicle was unveiled on July 16, and it is based on the Nissan Evalia MPV. With Stile MPV, the country’s leading commercial vehicle maker is aiming to increase its foot-prints in the fast growing utility vehicle segment.

The Ashok Leyland MPV looks similar to that of its sibling Evalia, but receives some subtle changes to its fascia such as the badge on the bonnet, grille and a revised bumper. The rear too looks similar to that of the Evalia, the only change is the logo. The interiors of the MPV are also sourced from its sibling. The MPV gets a monocoque construction and all-black interiors in order to keep costs down.

The Ashok Leyland Stile will be powered by the same 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine, that also does duty to the Evalia. The engine is capable of developing 85bhp and 200Nm of top torque. The engine is mated to a five speed manual transmission, which transmits power to the front wheels. It will also be available with CNG version.

Ashok Leyland Stile is expected be priced around Rs. 7 lakh, lesser than Evalia. The vehicle will compete against the likes of Chevrolet Enjoy and the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.
