The greenhouse, sides and the overall shape have remained the same. My guess is it'll be more rounded than the current one - that abt it

BTW, I wonder if "new" does really matter in this segment?!

Wait a minute,if i make any more noise they may mask the supension too!! SHEEEESH.

The front looks to be heading the new TL way. Wonder if there will be any changes under the hood.

At this point, I'm definitely happy with the looks of my Victa.

The original pics can be found here : CarSpyShots.net Forums: 2008 Tata Sumo

The guy Tushar/Tushky waited for over 7 hours to click these pics. He needs an invitation to TBHP ASAP :P . (Have already sent him a message telling him about Tbhp).

The wheels look like those on the old Scorpios'.
Looks like they have tried a lot to mask the contours...

One thing they have taken care of is the section between the rear-door and the rear-wheel well. This section is now more car/SUV-like, and not like the current Sumo's where the frame of the rear-door is part of the rear wheel-well.

Is this going to be a Scorpio copy? The stepney has been shifted from the tail gate. It's now under the floor, just like Scorpio. The number plate has been shifted to the tail gate, again like the Scorpio. The overall shape (more rounded now) is again like that of Scorpio. So are the wheel rims.
