Looks good to me
though I doubt if it will replace the safari.
It would be better off competing with Innova and Xylo
I like the looks much better than innova or Xylo in my opinion.
Snow and those tyres,can we expect a 4X4

This will take the sting out of the Xylo and will give Innovas a run for their money. Bring it on, Tata!

The looks of the Indicruz itself are enough to beat the Xylo. I hope the interior is not what it looks like. Looks like a crude dashboard was just fabricated for test purposes. Twin pipes at the rear also looks like a first for an Indian car. Now it only needs to have bigger wheels with low profile tyres (apart from the car being launched).
Maybe the thrid row of seats will make its way once the car is launched. Otherwise it makes to sense competing with the Innova and Xylo.
Also there is something sticking out of the front bumper. Is it the chasis??

First came Innova. Next Xylo. I sincerely hope that this Tata vehicle follows the suit. Please please please do not replace the Safari with this. Else we will have to live our dreams buying used Safaris (something to cheer about the existing safari owners!)
Though I'd love Tata to borrow this set of what now appears like Tata-across-the-board headlamps into their next gen Safari, if they cannot bring back the old 3L twin headlamps. But why twin exhausts instead???
Sidindica, you are at your usual job. Thanks matey! Cheers!

Im hoping the Indicruz is a well proportioned balanced automobile. Im hating Mahindra right now the the design disaster they call a Xylo. Im hoping Tata has a more balanced approach to this product, abs, airbags, climate control, should all be options that should be on every product. I dont understand how these companies are making cars without these options. The Indian govt should be strict about this. Where is the footage of any Tata or Mahindra crash tests ? Are we supposed to just take their word for it ? Seeing is believing. Im hoping that Indian companies treat us like they treat the Europeans, and give us the goodies and safety features as well.

Looks like Innova competitor to me. And this is not SUV from any stretch of imagination. Xylo days are limited along with Tavera. Xylo and Tavera are going to get badly hit, as Tavera replaced Qualis in Taxi market, this is the one going to take over that. Beats Xylo on space also, I think. A few points:
1) Better than Xylo, atleast the exterior dimensions suggest so.
2) Will beat Safari for rear seat comfort, but I hope the tyres last longer.
3) Can never be SUV. A good MUV, but not SUV.
4) The design looks like its taken from Toyota Innova, I mean copied from Innova, a sad part.
5) As usual the pricing will hit many mainly Tavera. I am afraid Tavera will lose a lot of market. GM will have to act fast to prevent this.
After looking at the images, I think this can be facelifted Innova also.
