No mention about ABS/Airbags ? Could have atleast made it optional!!

Guess another one headed to the Taxi stables!

Based on features can we expect pricing to be swift LDi vs QJ Aqua and swift VDi vs QJ AURA. If so safire and Tdi should be cheaper. Where will they position TDi. Are they going to discontinue v2 dicor?? I think we should wait and watch

The New Indica sure looks nice! As for the interiors, I will reserve my comments till I see the execution in flesh. And it sure does resemble the Spark in its side profile, esp the rear quarter glass.
Any idea about the pricing? The Multijet is a superb addition to the Tata stable, but the taxi image will still deter a lot of potential customers.

Nice to see Yokohama ES-100 in the brochure pics, but doubt if that is offered as standard.

I do see a pronounced positive camber on the rear wheels.

I hope this time around TATA have got the under thigh support right, all TATA cars have bad under thigh support, in the front seats.

I'll say this again, it looks like a bigger Chevy Spark, but a nice effort by TATA, I must say, if the car is good and the pricing is right, the swift may finally have some competition.

Awesome. This looks neat. Love the placement of the instrument panel in the center.

Hate the "T" shaped steering. Common TATA, you could have done better than this.

But otherwise.. SWEET!!! cheers:

It might only be a nicely made brochure - but the panel gaps seem to have reduced a fair bit. Any clue about prices ?

First impression is that it looks like an overgrown Spark.
As for the interiors, much better than the current version, but the centrally located console is a major turn off for me.

Lets see how the pricing goes.

No mention of ABS and Airbags? I thought that was going to be available by default on the top end variant, since the Turbo Indica already has it!

The petrol is a major major dissapointment... just 65 ps for a car weighing 1075 kgs!

Nice offering from TATA. Will look forward to its launch.

The Quadrajet seems like its the same engine which is doing duty in the Palio and the Swift. This is really interesting.
