Ashok Leyland launches its first passenger car, Stile MPV

A leading name in the heavy duty vehicle segment, Ashok Leyland is all set to foray into the intensely competitive passenger car segment. Ashok Leyland is all set to launch the Stile MPV, an eight-seater passenger carrier and positioned as an entry-level MPV in the car market. The Stile MPV is the debut passenger carrier from Ashok Leyland’s stable. This MPV’s design is heavily borrowed from Nissan Evalia. The Evalia was launched in the last leg of the year 2012. Ashok Leyland’s Stile MPV’s looks easily remind one of Nissan Evalia.

Ashok Leyland Stile CNG

However, the Stile MPV is adorned with sublime changes to its front end. A modified bumper, badge placed on the bonnet rather than the grille as seen in Evalia, are some of the changes in this MPV. The MPV’s rear end also resembles the Evalia in more ways than one. The only change you see in the Stile MPV is the logo, which is quite obvious.

Ashok Leyland has not experimented much with the interiors of its first MPV. The interiors are almost the same as the Evalia. However, this MPV’s interiors contain the captain seats in the middle row which is not seen in Nissan’s offering. Industry watchers are keen to know whether the Stile MPV will have a CNG variant as well along with petrol and diesel variants. Nissan is yet to launch a CNG variant of the Evalia. Ashok Leyland may well tap this loophole and come up with the CNG variant of Stile MPV to cover a wide customer base.

The diesel version of the Stile MPV will be powered with a 1.5 liter Renault K9K engine. This engine also powers the Nissan Evalia. The 1.5 liter diesel engine churns a maximum power of 85 bhp and delivers a torque of 200 Nm. The diesel engine will feature a five-speed manual transmission.

Ashok Leyland is keeping the pricing a well-guarded secret for its first ever passenger car since it could well be the catalyst for the carrier’s success. Speculations in the industry are rife that the Stile MPV will be priced lower than the Nissan Evalia and the difference would be around INR 50, 000.

Stile MPV will To further appease the middle-class buyers, Ashok Leyland will also provide a CNG kit with the MPV along with its petrol engine. This, it hopes, will enable cost-effective commute for its owners. The boot space will be compromised to a great extent by the CNG kit.
