MPV tries to reach an harmonious integration of the demands of a van or UV with the style and comfort of a modern sedan.The MPV's skin is wrapped tightly around the underlying structure, creating an athletic, sporty appearance. The tight, compact body helps eliminate excess weight, which helps contribute to better handling and acceleration. On the inside, there are numerous seating and cargo configurations, and a wealth of creature comforts to keep everyone happy.

Although this segment is new for India, it did exist in other forms such as UV vehicles or just vans. UV vehicles such as TATA sumo, and Toyota qualis are favourite people carriers, but when it comes to family vehicle people don’t prefer it because of its utilitarian looks, where as vans and cars preferred for family use, when it comes to take whole family out, cars fall short of space.

This project will be the exploration of MPV design for India, which will bridge gap between car and Utility vehicles. Based on what Indian families want.
