I just happened to see the 2nd pic on the Motoroids site - a rear view. The vehicle has twin exhausts, which I am hoping will herald India's first home V6. So from whatever we have seen and heard so far
- Large van in the league of Innova (could be slightly larger as well)
- 16-18' wheels and tires to match
- projector lamps
- Discs all around, with hopefully ABS available across the range
- V6? Petrol or Diesel?
- Airbags, Climate control almost a certainity (considering Manza has it from launch)
- likely to have good handling considering heavy european testing
- space/ride is a given in a tata product

With all this, I would hazard a guess that this will be priced atleast 10-15% over the Safari. Sales will depend on how they market it and if it has 4x4 to target the I wanna move up from Safari, but cant afford a Fortuner crowd

Anything less than 10 big ones for the top end variant and they have a sure fire hit on their hands

Cool Car scoop: Guess this car from Tata.

Hi,

Saw these two test cars on pune-bangy highway but close to khed shivapur (near pune).
Was able to follow them and get some video. As i was driving, had asked my wife to handle the camera

I was able to see the toyota logo on the front grill.
so its surely a toyota one and i thought it looked like 4x4 one. maybe fortuner. but thats what is puzzling me as fortuner was recently launched.
checkout the exhausts on both the corners of the rear.

Checkout the pics and will soon post the videos.

I did forget to get my digi-camera as usual :(

This could be another MUV, positioned below the Innova?

That looks like the Indicruz. Are you sure there were Toyota badges on? If so, it could be a case of misdirection by Tata by using another manufacturer's badge

The MH-12 regn means Pune. And the car looks like a Tata and not Toyota.

If you see the Indicruz thread you will realise that the car is indeed the Tata Indicruz.

That's not camouflage!! All the Indicruz pics show twin exhausts and its quite likely to be part of the real car. The Toyota badge (if it was on) seems to be the only difference between this spy mule and the other shots we have of the Indicruz

It might be another MUV from Toyota after Innova, as its temporry registration in KA.
Look at those twin exhaust, tempting to drive !!
Any news on engine specs or name or launch ??

Guess the Tata "T" was mistaken for the Toyota "T".

Chetan, in all probability you mistook the Tata logo for Toyota's. Or they have advertently put it there inorder to mislead people.
