To the folks from Pune: Get a cam and storm in to TATA ERC
i stay opposite one and there is pin drop silence at the gates and this vehicle comes out at the most unsuspecting time .I think i should join the security agency and become a watchman there to get a closer look at this vehicle

Sid and other guys, thanks a lot for sharing so much info on the new Indicruz.

For Tatas to prize this above or on par with Innova, they need to get the product (without niggles) and A.S.S right the very first time. They will not get a second chance.

I would like to believe that they have learnt a lot from the Sumo Grande episode.

Amith,

There is a seperate Sumo Grande Mark II test drive thread with photos which doesnot show any scoops on bonnets and there is only rubrails on side body and not cladding.

Any surprises can be expected on the front dash re-design?

Can you confirm Any news on ABS & Airbags on Sumo Grande new edition??

Is there a VX version of Sumo grande Mark II will be launched with the said features??

Edit: Bonnet Scoop = Top mount Turbo = increased GC=better mild off roading in 4x2 mode
Any thing in the cards that Sumo Grande getting ready for possible 4x4 option

So now there seems to be the new safari as well headed our way at this expo besides the Indicruz.

Monocoque vs Ladder frame. Will be intereseting to see the ground clearance spec as well as to compare the on road stability while turning besides possibly the absence of the pitching motion.

Yes that is the basic shape but you can expect revised grille and bumpers and slightly better headlamp units. Its the unmasked pictures of the rear 3/4 that we haven't been able to see so far. Especially that of the rear combination lamps.

We have got so many spy-shots of Indicruze. But, can some one share the spy pics of the new Safari.

There was only one pic posted here and one video of the test mule.
