Is there any chance that a more powerfull version will come out in the future, the current engine specifications looks very underpowered.

Its a shame that tata cannot launch a diesel variant, given the fact that they are essentially a diesel vehicle company!

PS: another advantage- drifting now even more available for the masses

Good find sidindica.The things which caught my attention:
  • Different tyre specs for front/ rear
  • 15 ltr Fuel tank and at that mileage gives a reach of 350 Kms.
  • No metallic colour (optional)
  • Very short free service intervals

This is a real scoop...Kudos..

Still no passenger side OSRVM... Seems like Tata thinks it is going to be driven only on single laned roads.... Shame.

Sad that we are not getting any version with Airbags. It seems europeans are lucky...

Awesome scoop, as always! This one looks like you will have a few millions of them on road. I am sure the bookings will far exceed Tata's expectations. This is the most awaited car in India, and the delay has definitely added more to the expectations.

Nice scoop there Sid.

I am a little confused here:
Quote:
wheels: 12"
front tyres: 135/70 R 12 tubeless
rear tyres: 155/65 R 12 tubeless
spare: 1 tyre, 135/70 R 12 tubeless
Why is TATA using different types for front & rear?

Takia comes from the HIndi phrase, Lakh-Takia gaadi. (Car of Rs. 1 lakh).

Certainly not Ayesha Takia

How about a Nano CRDI Automatic. That surely will be the ultimate value for money car!
