Talking SCOOP : The New Tata SUMO with PICS!

While I was enroute Pune form Mahabaleshwar, I spotted this new Tata SUV in a Ad Shooting. It was a very attractive color, and was visible from the highway, so I decided to check it out, and drove all the way near to it.

It was perched on a temporary stage, and there were a whole unit shooting the Ad. When I walked near by and Pointed at the Car I was stopped by about 10 voices from all around. But I had it framed already, enough to entertain TBHPians!

I'm not able to name the SUV - some one who knows news about it, throw some light!

Great scoop. Thats the new SUV thats based on the Xenon pickup. It could very well be the new Sumo although I think they should give it a new name. From the back , it has a little bit of a vannish profile.

It is the TATA way of fixing problems I guess!! I don't take my Palio to a TATA service station... I'm always afraid they will use the hammer technology in my Italian car...

I think anyone posting these pics should first watermark them with Team BHP.com logo. Tushky, your pic is not watermarked.

By the way, those wheels and the front-side profile remind me to much of scorpio!

looks great, but it kind of feels like the scorpio minus the Side Flares from the Front.- I wonder what the front looks like, Guessing more on likes of the Pajero or Land Cruiser, if you look at the edge of the headlamps.

But the Muffler needs to go, Crap design, instead should be better looking and sportier, this one looks like an Indica muffler with a Bent end.
