When I had seen the auto show 2014 photos in mid 2014, I thought I cannot wait for this car to launch. As things turned out, I still am waiting for an upgrade and pushed it out to Dec 2016, Nexon is also very much in consideration.

Interior with AMT snapped. Does not seem to be the top end. Has steering controls but no head unit or Auto AC.

Edit: Although the source says it is an AMT. Not very sure. Don't see any AT markings on the side of the lever (unless it is camouflaged)

Thank god, that looks almost production ready. Hope they display production ready version next week and launch it within few months. With Maruti Vitara brezza around the corner, Tata cannot wait any longer.

My Spark ODO is around 85000 and did not have any plans to change it before 100000. I will consider Nexon if Tata manages to launch the Nexon within 8-9 lakhs OTR for base-mid variant with dual air bags and ABS.

What color is that dash? The steering seems to be the same as Zest's but in a different color albeit. I think grey/black is a better shade for a car's interior than this dark beige shade that may look good on a 70s sedan or a 6 wheel cargo truck from Eicher or Nissan.

I see steering mounted controls on both sides. Cruise control on offer?? Have to say, Maruti might have beat them on the launch by then.

Checked the pictures in detail. Even though basic interior design looks final, colour combination of components are not production version and definitely looks like prototype. They masked it with tapes to cover design features.Fit and finish of gear lever boot area also point the same.

Those dials looks straight out of Zica bin.

Seems like a 6 speed gearbox. A button can be seen under the lever similar to i20. Also it seems to be a non amt lever. The dashboard design seems to be very sleek. Even though mask tapes have been used to hide the design. The portion underneath the central AC vents has a very limited space for an audio system to be incorporated.

I feel these photos are less of a leak/spy shot and more of a deliberate plant by TML. What with the forums drooling over the Vitara Brezza.....TML might have thought of a little reveal to maintain interest in their upcoming product. Maybe.

No cruise controls on the steering spokes. Better pic:

It looks like the same steering used on the Zest and Bolt.

Even the cluster looks the same except for the sliver accented binnacle for the speedo/tacho and the inserts.

Very uninspiring, plain Jane feel inside. Should have had a bigger MID atleast. The competition again seems way ahead.

Looks like this will come with a pop-up touchscreen media & entertainment system

Thanks. After posting mine, I was thinking of this and realized that Zest indeed had the "voice command activation" button on the right side of the steering. It's confirmed in the pic attached. I think Brezza is going to kill this product flat!

I think Brezza is going to look small in real life looking at the spy pictures. Nexon will have solid stance due to bigger tyres, wide stance and raised GC. If they are able to incorporate 80-90% of styling elements of concepts in to production version, this thing is going to looks awesome. After seeing Zest, Bolt, and reading Zica reviews - interior is going to be nice too - no concerns there. But they need to launch it around mid of this year with a killer launch price tag.

Let us wait and see

The part of the dash that is visible does not show any cuts / creases from which a pop-up touchscreen can come out. However, it may have been masked over by the tape covering a lot of the dash. There is a black rectangular 'space' just below the middle AC vents....it could be the point from which a pop-up unit can come out, but in that case, it will block a major area of the AC vents.

The central console also seems blandly designed. The three dials denotes that the model in the pic has HVAC, no ACC and is the same system doing duty from the Indica days.

Looks like a black/dark grey color combo with only the silver-accented instrument cluster to break the monotony. The trim level is of course the deciding factor here.

Overall, it may be the same old TATA story - a case of too little too late.Brezza, being launched earlier, will definitely make things hard for Nexon.
