Some pics of Tata indigo SW i spotted in Poland.

Adding to the list, even though small they have a presence in Seychelles as well. In this picture you can spot a Tiago on the right. Also, Seychelles police vehicles are Safari Storme and all the buses as well are from TATA Motors.Tata developing a premium hatchback, the Altroz.

Beats me how you're upset over the fact that he didn't include a shark fin antenna on the rough concept sketch!
C'mon, but to me personally this is the heights of nitpicking!!

The car looks great! Looking at the aggressive stance and the reports coming in that it will be fairly large, I'm sure it will have a great road presence.

Tata will be able to seal the deal with an automatic offering at launch.

Tata Motors management team are definitely doing a good job, but man can they bore you to death despite something exciting like a car launch.

Looks like Tata is launching the Altroz with all guns blazing. With the remarkable design, the full Auto box, electric parking brake, they now also have the EV version in place. I am really enjoying these new launches by Tata.

There was a time I used to feel saddened by the crude nature of Tata cars. But no more. Now, I feel proud to see such beautiful cars rolling out by an Indian manufacturer that can take on many global giants.

But don't they have limited time to unveil their cars? AFAIK they had 7-8 minutes only to unveil H7X, 45X and E-Vision sedan concept and I remember Mr Guenter Butschek was in hurry to unveil all cars within the given time period. So hopefully it won't be a boring event.

And as per their Facebook page, the unveil should start in a few minutes. Cheers!

Looks great, let's hope that Tata get's some great engines/transmissions to power it. The 1.2 Turbopetrol with a suitable automatic transmission would be a great starting point. Forget it Tata, no cheap AMT's for this.

Might be too early to judge but the front looks a bit weird and the alloy wheels look wow. But somehow the front resembles Bolt, doesn't it?
Good looks nonetheless

I am not sure if i can call this a good-looking car. It is surely different but not up to my expectations, especially the rear. This surely looks like a blown-up Tiago.

That instrument cluster, looks dated visually!

The touchscreen and its physical buttons are a direct lift from Nexon (new UI though).

Looks nice, esp in the dark colors, But I am not a fan of those stretched head-lamp /tail-lamp clusters.

I am anyway not in the market for a new car, so I dont have to get worked up on the points I disliked

Autocar simply stating the obvious, but hopefully its true and Tata offers the Nexon powerplants on the Altroz.

+1

IMO, the rear portion of car surely makes overall design out of the place.

Interiors also look dated!

Overall, this car does look average.
