Just had a look at Autocar website. They have a image of indigo vista's boot. I guess it is the first time we are seeing it undisguised.

Default Spied- New Tata Indigo

Finally we get to see Next Gen Indigo s rear. It looks like Tata flicked Santro s (1st model) taillamp and stuck it to the Indigo. I prefer present rear to this one.








Quote:
We knew it was coming, and now we can show you what it will look like. The all-new Indigo, based on the new Indica Vista, will be in showrooms by March 2009. But it isn’t a simple case of sticking a boot onto the Vista. Instead, the new Indigo gets a lengthened wheelbase and different engines. Tata Motors wants to take the new Indigo more upmarket without losing its value proposition, but the taxi fleet image is something that Tata consciously wants to avoid.

The nose of the new Indigo will retain the Indica’s sweeping angular headlights, but should benefit from a more prominent grille, with oodles of chrome for a rich look. At the rear, the Indigo gets vertically-stacked taillights, which are in keeping with the overall design and are sure to lend it a distinct identity from the rear as well. Whether they’re good-looking or not is a matter of personal taste, but Tata’s designers have done well to disguise the bulk of the rear. The tapering roof and C-pillar, with a more rakish rear windscreen give the whole car a more cohesive look, without really compromising on rear headroom.

The lengthened wheelbase is sure to liberate more in-cabin space as well, to improve upon what is already a roomy . As far as budget limos go, the new Indigo should set quite the benchmark.

Engine options will be the same as those on the Linea, with a 90bhp version of the Multi-jet motor, but whether Tata will stick to the Quadrajet nomenclature as on the Indica is to be seen. There could also be the 16-valve twin-cam 1.4-litre petrol from Fiat as well.

Prices should start around Rs 5 lakh for the base versions, and there could also be an executive variant, complete with rear A/C vents, Bluetooth, and perhaps even a DVD screen. As always, Tata will face a challenge with quality, notably fit-and-finish, but if it manages to have these sorted on the new Indigo, it looks to be a strong seller indeed.

Oh! God!! This is downright criminal. This is garbage! Look at the shape of the number plate area and then the rest of the metal shape towards the bottom corners. No design synergy at all.

Rear 3/4 view of the bumpers remind me of the cielo. The panel gaps on the sides seem enormous (still?). Tail lamps and the rear windscreen belong to 70s. My God! TATA designers need to start worshipping rear ends (of all sorts!) and get some flair in the process.

Can't stand it!!

BH.
