True, these Stags look very smart and classy looking. Styling is defintiely better than the Tata MarcoPolo Starbus. The larger front headlights and the slightly more lower down look makes it look better. The MarcoPolo probably were trying for a cool Xenon lights look, but failed pretty badly.

Hey, do these Stags have AC version available, and do they have pre-fitted ducting and vents for aftermarket fitment of ACs??

The part above the windshield looks haphazardly done. They could've smoothed it out atleast. But, its decent looking apart from that flaw.

Those Stags are lovely, except for that "forehead" above the windshield. The windshield should've been bigger, like this:

(A quick Paint-job of your photo, Ashley2 )

Otherwise they are classy. They look more planted on the road too, due to their low stance

If i am not mistaken, then these are new Stag 40 seater versions. But it would have been better if AL developed a BS3 4cylinder engine with Inline FIP rather than the EDC type.

Lovely front-end design in the Stag. I guess Ashok Leyland have neatly incorporated this 'family look' in all their models. The Stag pictured above, the Lynx pictured in this post (I took this pic last week in Trichy) and all the recent AL Viking MTC Chennai buses have the same design.

I was also wondering about this.
If AL can develop 6 cylinder 160HP inline FIP engine, this can also been done. But not sure wat was the implication?
This if developed will definitely be a smarter move!

Not a week passes by without spotting something interesting in Chennai roads to ramble about. Just a fortnight ago, I had posted some snaps of an old Ashok Leyland bus being tested and speculated that the company may be testing the Neptune engine in that body.

A week back, I saw the Nissan Sunny and posted the pics here. A couple of days back, I saw the iBus on test but could not manage to take snaps.

Late yesterday night, I saw yet another Ashok Leyland bus with 'On Test' stickers and 'Test' registration plates on it. It was rear-engined this time and just like the previous ones, the body was far from perfect and showed signs of having taken quite a beating. Now, don't ask me what could this be? I am clueless just like anybody else.

A friend of mine was talking about the Neptune engine being tested in a prototype bus. This could well be one of them.

Can anyone tell me if the AL buses running under JNNURM in Ernakulam are classified as LF's or SLF's?

According to the bus code, its a Low Floor (LF).

So why is it that it has a step after you get on? I mean, you have to go two steps up going from the ground to the floor of the bus. That's not a true LF, is it? Definitely not friendly for the physically challenged .

The bus is a "Low Floor", not a "stepless". The bus with a single step (or step-less) entry is an Ultra-Low-Floor. The one with two steps is a semi-low-floor.

Low Floor is single step entry. RE buses are usually Low Floors - I think the entry is 650mm. ULE is 400mm, while SLF is 890/900mm. (Figures might be inaccurate - entirely from a vague memory).

I think the values are correct. But I think the confusion arises from the fact that Tata uses Low floor only on the ones which are at a 400mm or less height. For the rest it uses semi low floor terminology.
