TATA XENON XT DUAL CAB AT AUTO EXPO

Source

One of the most interesting launch of the Auto Expo, this thing has got great road presence and a 4X4 as standard. It will come with 3.0 Litre, 115 Bhp Dicor Engine.

The interiors although great looking are still very iffy quality, especially the ill fitting trims and plastic. If TATA wants to be a global player, it needs to address these issues at the earliest.

Gotta get me one of these.

Who cares of the interiors when you can run over all those pesky 2 wheelers and the autowallahs.

This looks like a repackaged version of the Tata TL 4x4 . I had inspected the car and it is good in certain aspects. A good lyfestyle vehicle. The limited slip rear diff is a plus.

But poor approach angle , an even worse departure angle and rampover angle.

But a good lifestyle vehicle

Good point!
Its got good looks,and gives the rugged look while maintaining a certain class.Personal mods to this vehicle would make it look stunning! And definitely bigger meaner looking tires need go on it!

Every part of this vehicle reminds me of different vehicles.
Yeah, the tyres are really a shame on such a vehicle.

Headlights like the Palio, windshield/top segment off the Safari? Somehoe the center console reminds me of the Baleno.

It looks damn good. If only the Safari came with a front like this. I'm not saying Safari is bad, but this is so macho.

Just Amazing!! A very needed change then all the usual cars and SUV's. The last time something like this was launched by tata, it ceased to please many (207).

Really wish i could get my hands on one fast

I don't see any similarity with the Palio headlamps.


But I agree that the center console looks similar to that of the Baleno's.

For some reason,the 1st time I saw the headlights,I was reminded of the type on the Palio. Of course,these are broader and wider,but still looked close to the ones on the Palio..

I feel that this pick up has good capacity to look really good,if a few things are changed/added on.

Yes, Looks much better than Safari and Sumo.
Why not Tata make this design as a serious contender to other SUVs?
