Look at the interiors? Specially the steering wheel!

Nice! Hope it creates a market for itself!

A handsome vehicle to replace another handsome one (I always loved the charm of the original TL). However I guess its the Sumo that will get the Xenons looks till about the drivers door, rather than the X2.

I am looking more at the shutlines of the doors. They are so much more aligned/tighter. The finishing is definitely much much better than regular Tata finish!

A huge improvement over the current TL. Shut lines, interiors, design and overall packaging are miles ahead. This is also a preview of the next generation Sumo. The New Sumo with its smart looks and Dicor engine will certainly create a flutter in its segment. Cant wait to see the X2/New Safari now!

A part of me does not want to see a new Safari. I love the Safari the way it is, it looks just right.

Reminds me of the Mitsubishi Warrior that I see around in UK when I am there.

i agree, much better looking as well. The Getaway looked like something was wrong with it, considering how the cargo bay was placed on the wheels.

The rruck looks GREAT, But there seems to be an 'inspiration' from the civic-steering and the tail lamp from the logan. But overall looks awesome, much better than the getaway. Hope the rear seat is not ramrod straight like all the other twin cabs here!

Looks pretty sweet for a Tata,but what's up with the wheels?They look TINY!
Tata needs to look at offering 17's or 18's(wishful thinking-I know)

If Tata doesnt mess up on the pricing front , many are going to say 'Tata' to getaway.
