The canopy version looks nice."pick up the kids or go river rafting"!!.I think they were taking a dig at our water-logged streets.Also Tata needs to get some new interior designers.The dashboard design is so bland.Other than that the Xenon looks nice and butch.Like the embossed TATA lettering at the rear.

Saw the adv. in newspaper today. Its horrible. A recreational pickup has to be with some more character. In fact for the first time the rear looks better than front to me atleast. I think this is sumo grande without the last row of seats. It looks so similar, that its going to work negative against this car. Look at Scorpio version and one realizes why these vehicles must have some character in their overall design.
The motor is from Safari Dicor and this will be positive point, but I doubt their reliability after reading tsk1979's experience. A good effort, but not the best. They need to work more and just giving the images in US style ads. wont work here in India, never. The price looks very attractive, but still something better would have been welcome.

Some Side cladding in Matt black, a redesigned bumper with bigger air intakes and wider tyres. This would make a hell lot of difference. Maybe some PS experts can do this.

Anyone know if they are they giving TDs in cochin yet? dont want to go to RF, because they are unlikely to forget my previous TD there.
Would really like to try one out. The pricing makes it very interesting.
If its anything like the 2.2 safari, its also going to be very quick on the highway.

Wow the car look awesome in red.
Bring it on TATA.
I hope they quality is not like the other tata offerings. The interiors looks good in the brouchers and the add on canopy is whats makes the car/station wagon complete.
TATA seems to be heating on thing in the automobile segment, where others seem to have gone in under cover.

The Car looks great and great pricing as well. But rest assured this car will not sell in numbers as a matter of fact its aimed at a very small market. I guess a lot of parts sharing ( say almost 80%) with other Tata vehicles makes Xenons pricing lucrative.
I like the interiors in black and the rear looks awesome. Also the after market front guard (like ford endeavor) might make it look better. Put in better alloys and some lights on the front and the rear parcel tray cover might just be perfect.

Apparently the price is lower than the comparable Safari EX 4x4 by around 1L.
You get a vehicle which is 310kgs lighter, and does 0-100 in 15 seconds!
