The Sunshine is a well tested and reliable product form China which is a similar kind of market as India and there is plenty of demand for MPVs in India specially for the commercial use and for larger families. The version sunshine excepted in India will feature reasonable feature set with affordable price which is going to affect the existing Mahindra Xylo and upcoming Maruti Ertiga in this segment.
To some extent it will also cannibalize part of the sales of larger sibling Chevrolet Tavera in India, but at the price segment of Sunshine, it is not going to do a serious harm to Tavera. In terms of exteriors and styling it looks quite simple, in terms of dimensions, its quite close to the dimensions of Xylo with the front having some resemblance with Tavera.
The test mule spotted was a 5 door version with front and rear highly camouflaged. The styling of headlamps and tail lamps appeared quite simple. With the glance of it, it looks quite spacious car from inside offering decent comfort for long journeys.
It still remains a question when GM will announce this new MPV in India. We expect that we should hear officially about it in the second half of year 2012.
