Default Tata Indicruz in edmunds


Tata Indicruz Picture
Looks really sylish, not sure whether this is the real thing or just an illustration. I dont see the RVM turn indicators etc in this picture.

I heard TM targeting Feb end or March release. Assuming, initial production issues of Manza resolved by then. Defenitely 2010.

Innova is already underpriced. I suspect they make much profit from the Innova product line. With limited products, i think Toyota is not concerned much about profits, Capturing the market is more important. But with the current market turmoil, things may be different. Anyway TM is at a very advantageous position and if they execute well this time, they could easily capture major market share in this segment.

if this is actually the indicruz, this is the most stylish MUV this side of 15 lakhs! i dint like the grille though, its a bit too huge. i would anyday prefer this over the innova. oh, about tata's A.S.S. i would prefer taking chances for this beautiful vehicle.

what? with an on-road price of close to 13 lakhs & not even floor mats or mud flaps as standard, you think the innova is underpriced?

Hey guys,
Caught the New Tata Xover Test mules on my way to Mahabaleshwar . At first was wondering which SUV is going through the paces? Yeti is smaller and Indicruz or Xover could be possible. However the wheel caps gave away the mask, with the TATA "T" visible, it had to be Xover. Couldn't get a front view cause when the driver came to know I was taking pics, He refused to give us a side to overtake . Nevertheless, here are a few side and rear views of what to expect...

Sunil, nice pics there! Good effort.

From what we have gotten to see so far, this is one good looking vehicle. Those alloys too complement the whole design, and i get the feeling they would soon make their way to the Safari as well.

Great Pics Sunil!

Discs at the rear?? Am I seeing correctly?
Even the top end Innova does not have that!
Tata has a winner IF they have sorted the build quality and small niggles!

wow good to see some fresh pics at last. Great effort !!
that looks quite solid and well planted. Has a very SUV'ish feel to it. Innova will definitely look weak beside it. Finally rear dics and good alloy designs from TATA. cheers! Cant wait to test drive this one..

Ok, so this definitely is going to be priced more than the Innova, looks huge as well esp. in the close up pics.

By the way Happy New Year guys.

Not really. The Swift ZXi doesnt have discs at rear, still has ABS + EBD. ABS & EBD both control the hydraulic actuation of brakes. Doesnt really matter if the brakes are discs or drums
