I think the question was more in lines of a compact SUV (5 seater) which will compete with Duster / Ecosport / Terrano.

Tata seriously need to have good designers rather than taking a leaf out of Hero's strategy, & hiring more graphic designers. They will no longer have any share in the premium pie (read passenger vehicles market) because of the same.

More details on the Tata Jump, which will be getting Jeep Cherokee-inspired headlights, according to Motorbeam.

Quote:
We have tapped into our sources to get more details about the Tata Jump. The vehicle is internally called as CUV which stands for Compact Utility Vehicle. It looks very similar to the Vista in profile but features a different front and rear-end. The ground clearance is very high for that SUV feel while the spare wheel will be mounted on the rear tail gate. The biggest news is the headlights, which are inspired from the Jeep Cherokee (not Grand Cherokee). Thus the Tata Jump will get daytime running lights on the top with the main headlights below.
More details - http://www.motorbeam.com/cars/tata-j...ed-headlights/


EDIT - As per ACI, the Tata Jump concept has been formally named as Tata Nexon. (http://www.autocarindia.com/auto-new...14-370609.aspx)

Autocar India scoops Tata's Falcon 5, the compact sedan, to be named Tata Zest.

The bigger scoop is it will come with AMT mated to 1.2 Revotron engine right from launch.

Likely to hit showrooms by 1st half of 2014.

IMO launch timing looks spot on. They will benefit from the awareness & market feedback of Celerio's AMT.

Outlandish - Purely Conceptual - I like it! Although, the only aspect which I expect will make it into *actual* production models is the front grille :-(

Also that grey colored model to the far left~ Is that the new TTR Bolt? based on Hormazd scoop yesterday, TTR is the performance brand Tata will be launching at the Expo

Don't think so, seems like something totally different as it appears a lot more cab forward from this angle! One more unveiling?

More exciting stuff from Tata. The Nexon, like most Tata concept cars, looks fabulous! They would do well to retain the basic profile of the Nexon in the production version.

Nice looking cars from TATA. I wish they would launch a sub 4 meter Safari or Aria with updated features.

The front 3 quarters and the A-pillar is clearly SX4/Sedici inspired.

Anyone else wondering why the Nexon displayed is LHD?

Probably they're planning to show this car globally, and didn't feel any merit in creating a special RHD version only for Delhi Expo.

That will be another Quanto in the making... Let the original ones be popular, else there is no merit in a sub-4m version... Also, the height of the car needs to be adjusted as Safari is a very tall car. Else it will be odd... Again, Quanto is the example.
