Oh god can you see how the rear bumper is shaping up, with the light catcher line and those marker lights. The tailgate is such a crucial element now, given that I am seeing that the Bumper has a lot of potential for the rar to look hot.

This is very close to what the Indica V3 is going to be. Only one car had the lights whereas the others had small square temporary lamps.

EDIT: The pictures have been taken by Shrivz. Please thank him guys

The top part, though is not clearly visible, thats where the difference will be, I am sure looking at the different angle the rear window line has taken.

No I think not because first of all notice the height of the door. The car is much taller and hence the rear is more curvier. since the lights are of the same pattern it looks similar.

Moreover the bumper is different.

Not a big deal if it is just a perking up affair of the earlier car.

Yes if they were thinking they were going to radically re-design the car just as it happened in honda city.

It does look same height as swift. Although going by logic that the first camouflaged vehicle is further down than the swift and appears to be of the same heingt, means the first camo vehicle is higher. But as the distance from the observer increases the effects of perspective decreases. and you almost get to see the true shapes and sizes.

But the car interior will be wider for sure.

Good point . There will be sure more space than swift. That one is for sure.

Great pics Shrivz! Thanks. Looks like the rear passenger sits has a much higher door waistline than the driver. Nice shape. I like the door. Very European.
And its certainly taller than Moral's Palio.

@Moral : Was it hard to keep up with them? Because ACI had reported that it was, even when they were in their Fusion.

EDIT : How about watermarking those pics?

This gives an impression that these cars are going to be mighty fast, well not, remember Indigo test mules were also reported to be mighty fast. The real reason is that the test drivers are not driving their own cars and not even paying the fuel bills, so these cars are always driven at the right rpm, gear combo which "civilians" wouldn't think of doing over long time. How many real drivers drive third gear 110kmph!!

@1100 : ACI said they were pushing it hard too! And it wasnt "their" car either. Anyway, maybe I like to believe they were fast.Makes me feel good about TATA.

The doors match up rather nicely with the Elegante concept.

Makes me feel good, whenever a fast car is launched. But then they said the same for Indigo test mules, but yes given the performance figures of the Non-Turbo Indica they were comparing with Indigos were a lot faster in any form.
