Simple, the traveller would say, don't just look at the face, look at my butt.

I guess the headlight will be covered by another glass.



Aircon on the roof?

Looking at the latest pics I have a feeling that this wont be too bad. Initial pics were hinting at the grille being of DC proportions. But I would have preferred Dodge RAM type headlights with the front fender re-done.

I'm getting scared looking at the pics and even more scared thinking of whats going to be under the hood.

This will be in the hands of thousands of taxi drivers reeking havoc if it has the merc CDI engine.

If its that ugly, it has to be DC.

Actually, I didnt find it all that ugly. A bit in-your-face perhaps, but the overall effect when seen in person is not that bad. But I absolutely loved those mirrors!
Ohh..and the interiors/instrument cluster remain unchanged.
How much does a Traveller cost OTR?

You saw a fully uncovered vehicle and you didnt take any pics, thats very unlike you, I hope you are not unwell.

A half-hearted, cost-conscious effort at revising the styling, so typical of Indian auto manufacturers, not significantly different from what Hindustan Motors and Premier Automobiles used to do in the olden days.

Tail lamps are borrowed from Sumo Victa.

I'm sure by now Daimler Benz must have phased out even the successor of Tempo Traveller. Why doesn't Force Motors simply buy the discarded tooling for that and introduce an all-new (at least for India) shape?

Probably that's why he didn't take the pictures!
Wouldn't look like a spy pic without the covers!

Tushky has had an accident, requiring surgery and all. He was in the hospital thus for a few days.
