From the considerable space behind the rear door, the car looks more like a stretched Marina.

The way the C piller comes down proves the point that its only an XL version!
Also the side line does not continue beyond the C pillar and looks to be supported by a rod or something like that!

It looks like mini ARIA more then the Indica XL, look at the tyres they look much bigger. This might be their answer to the mini XYLO

Rear seams mostly fake. The tyres look huge for a regular sized Indica. Competitor to mini xylo? Interesting!

I think this is TATA's very own Ertiga. From the look of it, seems mostly ready, and under 4 meter.

Probably yes in so far as the exact shape is concerned. However, the number plate and openings in the hood for tail lamps do give a vague idea.

Since last 3 years (After Vista launch) TATA hasn't invested much in old indica/Indigo platform, most of the changes were either cosmetic or just some tweaking.
Last big investment on this platform was CS version.
Could not understand why they do all this stuff now with old platform and not with Vista platform.

I wonder what it will be named, as Indica E-V2 XL sounds more of a technical nomenclature.
My guess - Aria -Tiga

IMHO, What tata doing is taking a picture of 'their one and only car' on the MS Paint with the mouse stretching or painting a boot on the rear and later erasing half of it using the eraser, then naming the car starting with IND to let people know that they should be proud to have and Indian designed car like this.

No offense to anyone, this is purely my opinion about the company of my first car.

Regards.

I wish Tata change the bonnet, bumper, handle & old Dashboard to give to give a real "refresh".
They can even call it as different car like "Zen" to "Estillo" done by Suzuki.

I strongly wish they should have a small car to compete with Santro & Wagon-R segment.

I believe, TATA already has something called NANO in terms of size and now with NANO v2, from the interior as well.

You seem to be right mate, look at where the rear tyres are, this looks to be a full blown mpv, may be its another ARIA itself that they are testing, no way this is a sub 4 mtr mpv, this looks like a full blown mpv.

Definately not based on the Aria platform

But definately looks like it is an MPV with 7 seats. It does have a really stretched wheelbase indicative of the Indica or Vista being stretched into a 7 seater Hatch.
