Smile sumo grande pick up spotted testing

hello everybody. last friday was travelling on the mumbai-pune express highway. i saw a a disguised suv sort of vehicle from the opposite side . but was unable to identify it. later after just short of approaching pune city was overtaken by another similar vehicle. this time i could make out that it was the sumo grande in the form of a pick up. it was filled with huge black cans may be to assess the car's performance. but i can tell u one thing that itwas doing serious speeds of around 110-130kmph.mods please the post if its too long

its already launchd in many markets worldwide.. tata maybe testing a new engine in it. that product aint new for them.

hyundai launches their products in India first being an outsider company while tata being an India based company launches their new products outside first.

Xenon is old news on Mumbai Pune highway.. However, I saw what looked like a Merc A-Class on the highway near the turn off to Dehu road. It was too quick for me to register what car it was, as it was heading in the opposite direction. Suspect its a test mule because it had the red plates.
