Great looking van! Tata & Mahindra are going to be all over the Innova, Toyotas mega-premium pricing days are over. Buttttttttttttttttttt this ain't no Safari / SUV. It is a people mover. And looks half a size bigger than anything currently in the market.

Default When are they going to have new Safari?

When are they going to have new Safari? It is long since they launched the current model, though it is still good Indian SUV.

Is there any insider news about their new Safari developments / testing news?

I think Tata will launch the production version of the Indicruz at the upcoming Geneva show. Traditionally (12 years now) this auto show has been Tata's global platform.

The contrast is amazing, last year they showed off their cheapest car (Nano was easily one of the stars of Geneva'08), this year perhaps the Indicruz will be the most expensive Tata car to date. keep going ratan, make us proud.

It supposedly has four wheel drive. This is an unique vehicle.

Nice try Ashu-
The headlights inspired by Vista- so now Indica Vista, Indigo Vista and this Indicruz will have similar looking headlights.
Back looks like Innova though.

GTO- that looks like the upcoming crossover/MUV from the T company and not the T-Sedan- unless the T company has decided to give the estate version of the T-sedan some serious workout in a gym with steroids.

The angled pics from the back make it look like the Crossover/MUV from the T company.

Thats definitely not the T brand car but the Indicruz/X over.
The relative size of the thing compared to the truck next to it, the lower half of the front bonnet (fog lamps/grille), twin rear silencers are all give away signs of this big MUV.

GTO, does not look like a 3box sedan to me. As pointed out, either an estate version (I'll love it!!), or an MUV.

, Few things that's already getting me excited.

1) Twin Exhaust Pipes
2) Looks like a 4X4 ( since testing is in the Arctic Circle)
3) Fit & finish seems to have improved
4) Tow hook at the rear.

Wonder how good the engine would be? sure a DICOR,

The only competition Toyota Innova needs to think seriously from now on
