Well, since most of us here on this forum first get to see the pictures of new cars, courtesy spy photographers like yourself, any description that you provide regarding the exteriors/ interiors/ aesthetics/ headlamps/ symetry/ ground clearance/ rear-fog wipers/ blah-blah/ etc would be well appreciated.

I mean you've been the first one to click so many new cars for the first time. Its only fair that you write something about them as well.. For the benefit of dozens of subscribers on this forum.

ok.so about this pick up.. it feels macho. but it is short in height. noise is same as Safari. about interior, it is so simple. not as good as european pick-ups. dash quality is ok. but much better than current tl.cabin feels roomy. from side the vehicle looks too good. it has rear defogger.tail lamps looks awesome at night.

Completely agree. Its shorter even than me. But it looks soo good.....from a distance.
You become aware of its diminutive size as you get closer. If only it was 1.5x bigger.... Interiors are super duper cheap looking. And made of hard shiny plastic. The silver garnish on the centre console should be done away with, IMHO.

There you go man..

Reminds me of the Tata-Mobile in a new avatar. How is the head-room and the leg-room for the rear seat passenger in the crew-cab? That was one of the complaints from the Tata-207-DI range of vehicles.

Keep up the good work..

Umm, still not very good, from what I could see. In the crew cab, the rear seat leg room can be compared to a hatchback. Thats only my perception though, havent sat in it, just peered into parked one.

If you look at the pictures here displayed in various shows across, you will see a mixed feeling of whether TATA will launch this truck with a 2.2 engine or not.

TATA had displayed only the TATA pickup with a 2.2 sticker and not the TI sprint, but it seems TATA has changed its mind and did some changes to the looks now and pickup designs are being used in the Sprint (tails lamps etc) or even an integration of the two, so will this also mean a 2.2 engine ???, one can only speculate.

This article says that the TL sprint will be powered by the 2.2 ltr engine. So if it is, Safari 2.2 is also on the way very soon, but talk about speculation, speculation and speculation, no firm news.
