Shame on TATA if they do this.

whats the fun of having twin exhaust if you don't have a V6 under the hood.

they are only as relevant as a Ferrari sticker put on an ambassador. to me it would only mean a poorly done mod job.

Please don't do it on a Safari.

The Captiva too had two exhausts - I too DOES NOT have V6. The Captiva looks much more macho due to the twin exhausts. The same should work for the Safari as well.

ok, i did not knew that.

my point actually was that would it be any better than the single exhaust (obviously discounting the looks part).

the twin exhausts look clean and neat. the single pipe converges into a v shape junction with 2 pipes leading to the back which have 2 small end cans. this has released a good amount of space for the spare wheel too.

the engine is same at that of safari and auto expo with sport 2 models, 4x2 and 4x4.

just an update. the headlight is not sourced from MANZA. entirely different unit.

Caught this production ready Indicruz from very close. the car is amazing. very rich profile. sorry guys only able to catch pic from front. i tried to design dashboard. this is just to get idea how it looks. real dashboard is beautiful.
when i saw inside, the dashboard was in white and black colour, like skoda fabia. there was satellite navigation in the middle. instrumental console was somewhat similar to fiat linea.I dont remember the AC control was manual or automatic. chrome strips around windows.
the car has CURTAIN AIRBAGS, both for driver,co-driver and passengers. there was DVD screen at the room( just like old limited edition tata safari).
the guy said this car will cost around 14 to 15 lakhs.. very costly imo. lets expect this will be cost around 10 to 13 lakhs. i love this car.

Tushky you are back from the dead dud, no pics from you like before and now this whopper Hey did she have a3rd row? Nect time you bump into any TATA guy check if they have auto tranny plan (very easy for them as 2.2 dicor is same as Mhawk so the same tranny vendore from Aussir can supply fast) I see projector headlights lets hope they put in an auto tranny as well. Side bags will take the safety game up for sure.

Mirrors on this one seem to be like the auto porto having mounting on door like a sports MPV and not on the door frame all in all seems good looking with some sporty ambitions (within MPV tribe)

Oh yes it does! This baby's got presence with a capital P. It's turning out to be a looker as far as the front end is concerned. I think this is going to be one hell of a surprise from Tata.

Tushky Nice picture there. The indicruz promises a lot. Hopes it comes with auto tranny to complete the package.

Indicruz looks really sweet. Looks like this will be the best vehicle from Tata when launched. OMG, TATA keeps improving their product really well. They are trying to venture into luxury market now. Tata must have definitely got inputs from JLR for this project.
