At the 2012 Auto Expo Ashok Leyland revealed its Multi-Functional Vehicle, the Stile.
The Stile is the result of the partnership between Ashok Leyland and Nissan. The Ashok Leyland Stile and the Nissan Evalia are the same but the Stile will be sold independently from Ashok Leyland dealerships. Of course the Stile and the Nissan Evalia will have the same 1.5 Liter K9K diesel engine. Another thing that we know of is that the Ashok Leyland Stile will be positioned lower than the Nissan Evalia.Less

Expert Test Review
The Stile offers good leg room and numerous cubby holes for passengers of all the three rows. The seats are comfortable but the third row is short of thigh support. Large window areas give the cabin an airy feel.
The high-end variant comes with rear AC vents which are located in between the front seats. The sliding door make ingress and egress to the middle and third row easy. The sliding type windows for the sliding doors are more useful that the butterfly type ones of the Evalia.
The driver seat offers good visibility of the road and dash mounted gear-lever makes way for sound ergonomics.
The boot space is almost non-existent with the third row seats in place but fold them and you'll get decent real estate to stow your luggage.
As mentioned, the Stile derives most of its design elements from the Evalia. One can easily mistake it for Evalia when viewed from side or rear. The front however is given a new identity, thanks to larger headlamps, horizontal slated grills and a new bumper with bold character lines.
The sheet metal on the sides are kept flat for cost reasons. This, combined with the generous proportions gives the MPV a disproportionate appearance. The rear fascia which is devoid of much attention from the designers (for cost reasons) also has some amount of blandness to it.
The 1.5-litre Diet diesel engine struggles to get off the line but once on the move, it does a decent job of moving the big MPV. The driveablity is good but the motor simply doesn't have enough grunt to make effortless progress with 7 passengers on board.
The 1.5-litre K9k diesel motor is renowned for its outstanding fuel economy in all of its previously known states of tune. The 76 PS avatar is no different as it offers an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 19.5 kpl which is excellent for an MPV this big.

The Ashok Leyland Stile handles fairly well around the corners although with noticeable body roll. As far as the driver keeps the vehicle in limits, it behaves itself.
The brakes have sufficient bites but under emergency braking, the car looses its composure as the tail steps out of the line.
To keep the costs in check, Ashok Leyaland stopped short of offering any safety features like ABS, EBD or airbags. So all you have are seat belts and your human instincts to keep you safe.
The suspension is sorted and the ride quality is the single largest asset of the Ashok Leyland Stile. The car doesn't bounce much and the high speed ride quality is pretty impressive.
