Tata Motors has unveiled the Tata Indigo Advent and showcased the new Indica hatchback with a sporty look at the 74th Geneva Auto Show.

Powered by a turbo-charged inter-cooled diesel engine, the Advent is a contemporary crossover offering a combination of attractive features of a sports utility vehicle and a station wagon, a company release said on Tuesday.

Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata said the new Indigo Advent continued to demonstrate company's ability to explore and harness the versatile car platform.

The thrust of the company is to continually innovate and provide cars best suited for the changing needs of the customers worldwide, he added.

The new Indica hatchback, which has several updated features on the exteriors and interiors, and the Advent would be available in Europe later this year, the release added.

Why does Tata not showcase their prototypes in India, first?? Aria, Station Wagon, Safari 2 door, Indiva, Advent etc etc, all were shown first at "phoren" auto shows [mostly geneva]. Do they not want to see the response to these cars in India??? Tata cud have easily showcased the "Advent" in the New Delhi Auto Expo 2004.

Well Tata should consider showing their concepts first in India rather than abroad c ause their market here is bigger . Maybe we have to show Ratan Tata a certain Top Gear episode what??
