I TDed it a while back, I was thinking of buying one but after the TD I gave up on that idea.

My observations

1. The Grande does look good a head turner for sure.

2. Tall Stance.

3. Spacious

4. Engine is pretty good, I reached 125-130 kmph easily but gave up because I could see a bend coming and didnt know if the body roll could sustain that speed on the bend, but frankly I found it to be a pretty good handler as good (or bad) as a Scorp.

5. Insides are very basic and does remind you of the old Sumo, not much curves on the plastic lot of bluntness.

6. The only thing that disappointed me was the rattling and weird noises when I wanted to accelerate, the TATA guys should take care that atleast the TD vehicle is looked after properly. Just couldnt bring myself to believing that Tata's can give you the quality that others can.
