To keep the momentum, steady, they launched and refreshed every vehicle thoroughly and still there is one last segment left.
Sure, it has ruled it with the Scoprio but with the base variants only. However, it is time that it starts even lower than the Scorpio and above the TUV 300 to give consumers exactly what they want.
