Mahindra Voyager LATEST UPDATES

Mahindra & Mahindra, India's premier automobile manufacturing company, is the manufacturer of Mahindra Voyager. It is one of the eleven car models manufactured by the company. With Voyageur, the company ventured into the passenger or consumer vehicle segment. The Mahindra Voyager is a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) that has done exceedingly well in India. The car sales have been notable because of the multiple features that made it a one-of-its-kind car model in 1997. It is probably the last automobile in India that has been designed and manufactured as a luxury MPV family van.

Such was the majestic aura of the Voyager that the company has been selling it with the USP', 'A Room with a view.' The space is ample in this nine-seater car, just the type that fits the requirement of a joint Indian family. Thanks to the abundance in space, the vehicle has been doing quite well as a cargo vehicle, primarily used as an ambulance by the medical industry. When it was launched, the Voyager was considered a lifestyle choice being an ambitious brand.

The vehicle is priced between Rs. 5.81 lakh and Rs. 6.0 lakh. The Mahindra Voyager is pitted against the likes of Mahindra Bolero, Maruti Suzuki Eeco, Tata Altroz, Nissan Magnite, Maruti Suzuki XL6, Mahindra Marazzo, Toyota Urban Cruiser, and Force Motors Gurkha. However, the main competition to Mahindra Voyager is from Maruti Omni that offers high value-for-money, design-wise, and price-wise.

Mahindra Voyager PRO’s & CON’s

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

· One of the prime advantages of the Mahindra Voyager is that it partnered with one of the leading automobile makers globally, Mitsubishi Motors.

· The Peugeot-sourced engine is very powerful with outstanding mileage.

· The car offers a smooth driving experience in the city and on the highway.

· The unique selling proposition of the car model was aligned with the abundant space inside the car. The nine-seater has enough space for all passengers making it comfortable for big families.

· A box-like van vehicle that does not go well with the buyer's perception of a sleek, comfortable family car.

· It is a non-ac car that does not make it a fit buy as a family car.

· The car is too expensive compared to competitors present in the segment. The basic variant is priced at Rs. 5.25 lakh and that too with no AC.

· Even though Mahindra & Mahindra is a known name, it was yet to establish its mark on the passenger vehicle market in 1997. Hence, there was a brand-related barrier in the minds of the Indian consumers.

· Issues with after-sale service and support.

· The brand failed to impress individual buyers with its premium and luxurious looks.

· Another con of the Mahindra Voyager is that the car picked up sales in the commercial segment, especially in the ambulance industry. It further distanced individual buyers from the car.

Mahindra Voyager EXPERT REVIEWS

The Mahindra Voyager was one car model that introduced the concept of luxuriousness in the Indian automobile sector. However, one of its main issues was its price. Even with its robust features, the premium price of about Rs. 6 lakh was an expensive proposition for the Indian marketplace. Mahindra & Mahindra's reasoning for the high price was its association with a brand like Mitsubishi Motors. One of the reasons that the Voyager faced rejection in India even though L300 has been doing well abroad is that it faced tough competition from Maruti Omni. While the company pushed the model in the consumer car segment, it did not accept much because the commercial sector typically prefers India's vans for functional benefits. Buyers usually look for comfort and safety factors in automobiles, and on these parameters, vans like Voyager did not deliver relevantly. The absence of AC in the vehicle has been an issue, and the safety features are minimal compared to many other car models that were launched later. Also, as far as the Indian mentality goes, vans are seen more as commercial cars and not family cars. However, back in 1997, Mahindra felt that the Indian buyers were ready for a luxury family van, and that's how they collaborated with Mitsubishi.

On the positive count, though, the vehicle boasts a robust engine and an incredibly impressive space indoors.

All in all, the van design, non-AC vehicle, combined with the high price, is a significant setback for the Indian consumer.
