They look like sweat marks on the shirt of a heavily worked labourer at the end of the day ;-)

When we look at it next to Sumo, I get a feeling that this is not an MUV, but rather it looks like the new SUV from mahindra. The car is not as tall as Scorpio from the image IMHO. But if Corners were taken fast, I think its a latest vehicle and I doubt that this is Captiva. Any GM vehicle will have GJ 17 number. Today I spotted a Cruze with GJ 17 number but it was not testing ( white in red ) number, but normal black on white.

So very less chances for this being a new Captiva.

I guess they`ll use a lot of bits and bobs from the vista now that they have that, as per autocars visualizations the indicruz looked much more vista ish than xenonish or gradeish, which IMHO is a good thing

When Sumo Grande was launched, many people on this board called it the death of the Scorpio which turned out to be wishful thinking.

From the other Team-bhp post Tata is planning to price MUV higher than the Innova. Good luck to Tata. Their ideas are great but where they fail is in the execution of the product. Fine products damaged by lack of quality control.

Xylo is positioned as a cheaper VFM alternative to the Innova and hence selling in good numbers. The Indicruz is supposedly aimed at a segment higher than the Innova.

does that kind of segment exist? is there a market above the Innova as far as MUV's go, don't think so. AFAIK, this is the new Safari with 7 seats ala Fortuner and the kind. now that being around 14-15L , i'll admit.

Coming back to the topic, it looks more of an softroader/crossover than a MUV. May be Tata's entering into a all new segment with this vehicle and in that case the segment above Innova would also be justified, IMHO.
