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.
It's looks TATA is very much interested in International markets mainly European markets and that's why they are giving so many features.I think they might have sourced these features from LR.

tushky: are you sure that the screen has sat navigation,because these big screen can be used for music player and other vehicle info too.

But 14 to 15 lakh for high end is way too high and too for a car which is manufactured in India with (may be) 90% or more locally ,they might go for max 11 with these loaded features.

The more I look at this beauty the more it makes me beleive that it is not just a people mover ala Xylo/Innova. It's much more than that!

Good job Tata. Bring it on!

@tushky, good job as always with the pics. And a nice drawing too

beautiful snaps tushky. it seems you are not in a mood to spare the test guys . the drawing of the dash looks very nice. the interiors will be of different color to match the exterior color. isnt it a surprise from tata ?

also did you check the roof? the best roof with LCDs (multiple) and cabin lights and AC vents. All these are very very slim and elegant. also the third row has AC on the pillars as well as top. the AC stuff is just overdone

third row is congested same dimensions as innova.dont expect xylo space here.

the price is very much justified. but i dont know how we people will take it from tata.

music player + navigation + vehicle info = display in the centre console

Looks like a winner. I feel it will be success if priced competitively with the Innova and if they wake up the man in charge of Tata's Quality Control.

the lower end ones might start from 11 lakhs.

First, they have to hire one.

Great job, @tushky
wow - thatz a nice surprize from Tata. She is a looker - the more I look, the more I like the design.

14L with sat nav and all the bells and wishtles seems to be a good price. Hope the lower end will start from somewere around 10L bracket.

those cans were for loading the vehicle at the rear. suspension and alignment check etc. dont know which was the one you got to see. but both are running on the road. 4X4 as well as 4X2. did it have alloys?

just regular alloys like currant Safari. but i have also seen this car with upmarket alloys and tinted windows. but i was shocked to see curtain airbags in tata car. that too for passangers.

Tushky, great find & thanks for giving us a first look at the front end! This is going to be one hell of a launch from TATA, if only they can get their QC up to speed, this is going to be a winner!

The Technicians are back from the Indicruz training which lasted a week and plant visit in pune.

The EuroIV compliance is due to water cooled EGR and EIV ECU firmware. Engine remains the same 2.2l.
