I really like the back end. The front could be better. The grille is too large and old fashioned and that large T logo just dosent do it for me.

This was shown in a minivan form at Auto Expo in Delhi.
I think its called the A2 platform, and has been created to showcase concepts at auto shows.

I love the look it especiallly from the sides. Maybe the front look is out-of box but the rest of the car looks real good.

It looks somewhat like optra from the back

It's too sharp and funny. wheelbase is too small as a result overhangs are too large. Also the rear door is an ergonomic disaster, noone will be able to enter withe ease as the opening at the bottom is too small and the door the curves down sharp.

Yeah, sizes 9 & 10 will have to make an acrobatic entry into the rear seat. Also the boot & rear bumper look like it's hanging from a tree.

looks like tata have been viewing the g35 just to much so now its mixture between the indica and g35 final output gender confused robot but i feel its the best looking tata i have seen and will capture the market here in india and those are amazing rims.

too much front and rear overhang- the design is not cohesive at all either in profile or 3 quarters....cmon tata, you can do better than this.

It's a Show Car for heaven's sake, what do you mean Ground Clearance!! Do you think that Tata will ever sell that with those LED-lights, low front & rear bumpers & those Alloys? Come one it's all just to make the car look pretty on the stand, most of this will be substantially altered if it ever reaches production.

its plain ugly!! i didn't like it. the boot looks like an after thought (just like the current indigo). since this is a concept..i think Tata has overdone it...maybe the production version (minus the oversized bumpers & tyres) will be a little easy to the eye.

Imagine this with few changes as the new indigo.Looks like if two different designers designed the front and the rear.One insisted on a cab forward front and the other insisted for an old fashioned slab sided rear.Maybe it is because the car has an indiva front end and the rear has been designed as an afterthought.This has been the problem with the indigo also ,its rear and front do not sync or gel with one another.Looks like the tata boss would have salaid to his design guys it has ready cost us a lot to get that indiva designed from I.D.E.A so we shall keep the front intact and you can do whatever you want with the rear.Tata is not able to understand what platform sharing means it thinks that they only need to change the rear to get a new model.Look at maruti even if they have managed it so nicely with the wagon r,alto and estilo.Or maybe tata is taking the croosover thing very seriously mpv+sedan=elegante.Whatever it is ,looks plain ugly.Should be helpful in scaring people off.

Can someone please post pics of the TATA TL Sprint pickup at the Geneva show?!...I've tried my best, but unable to find anything!.I'm sure TATA will clean up this car before putting it into production.Expect the new Indica and Indigo to be based on this show car.That's what i read!....
