Good job Tushky, once again!

Now don't send off these pics to the mags without first settling the terms in writing, OK?

Somehow, the grill from TL Sprint doesn't seem to go too well with the rest of the shape. Let's see what the final product looks like. This design job's been done by European designers, not Tata's inhouse guys.

The center piece is new, with new swithces and a new layout. The gear knob is new, and the door panels are showing changes. The cup holders were not there earlier.

Wonder if I can get this one to fit on my Victa.

Saw this some time ago near Laxmi Road.
I went and asked driver as which car it was I wasn't expecting any answer from him, he said "Sorry, I don't know sir" but it allowed me to take a quick glance around.
The interior quality is much better than current sumo. But car is in very early stage of development. The dash isn't completed yet and there was some technician sitting on passenger seat with laptop which was connected to multiple sensors. The instrument cluster is simple and clean but lack tachometer. I tried taking photo of interiors but not much of success there
One thing which was surprising was quietness of the car. It is very quite compared to current model.








Oh and there was a Safari in front of it with test number plates too, whats interesting was there were no DICOR badges

Great find adya! (You should have watermarked your pictures too!). It seems Tata wants to test them in extremely chaotic stop and conditions too.

wow thats great adya. next time act like fool.and dont ask them directly. first look at him many times,give him smile. and then ask about maker, then model. or just tell him the name of the model. he will get surprised and tell you about the model. tata always test their vehicles on Karve road. i have seen Indigo, marina and tl many times.

MPower: Isn't the Ingenio supposed to be a MPV [read: mini-van/ Innova-like], and not a MUV?

The rear view mirror, the pillars, the height, and the dash resemble the current Victa.

Yes, it was the registration and also there was Safari in-front of it with test number plates too.
And comparing it with photos posted by Tushky the shape is similar too.

From my experience TATA test cars have Pune passing whereas Mahindra test cars have Nashik passing (MH15)
