Is this the new TATA Indicruz/Xover, it looks definitely huge and wider even with the black cover. We will come to know in a couple of days. Very nice scoop photos thnks Akki

The image quality is not great because it is cropped and resized, but hope to get the point across.

Its surely Indicruze/X-over/crossover whatever you call it! and this is the one which is going to be showcased during AutoExpo.
MH-12 is Pune RTO and MH-14 is Pimpri-Chinchwad RTO. TATA can get any of the registration (either MH-12 or MH-14).
MODS can merge this thread with Indicruze thread.

one more day to go. From the scoop pics, the test mule seems to be vell proportioned, and boy, those alloys and tyre combo looks good.
Hope Tata will bring-in the new year with a bang.

Yes, it is the indicruz. There is another thread for this as well. I think the mods should merge this with that!

In one of your pictures (see below), the pressed steel wheel is that of the current Tata Safari. So I guess this has to be a Tata unless, that was a great ploy from the other big "T". Chances are that it IS the Indicruz.

Tata should be MH12 TR. Which vehicle is MH14?
Sirji, this is a Tata. If you look at the pics in the Indicruz / New Tata Safari thread where we have a lot of these pics, you can see a Sumo Grande also sporting the MH-12 plates. The Grande in that pic is just in front of the test mule there. Tata test mules have been seen with both MH-12 and MH-14 plates.

This car seems to very wide and the passengers are going to get more than enough space,but i feel that it might be difficult to drive in city due to this.This test vehicle seems to be the final one because you would notice the exhaust has been changed from the initial test mules. Great job Chetan.

thanks @ AKKI_5 for the pics,
dude those pics clearly speaks the proportion of the car.
Hope TATA price the car properly, and yes maintain the quality of fit & finish high enough, atleast like Manza.
