This one just looks like 2013-2014 Land rover Discovery 4 design . Tata having now JLR under its wing deriving all its SUV heavily from the luxury brand . shades of that we can already see with current Tata Harrier being cost effective sibling of Landrover Discovery

Designs are too fancy as per renders and may not be that exotic when they materialise. Or who knows, era of EV in India and world will churn out such looks in cars.

Ya'll Nibbiars

I 20 84 hp 1,200 Kg

Tata Tiago 85 hp 997 kg.

Swift 82 HP 998 kg.

The I 20 is over weight then unable to churn enough power.

The Swift is better with smooth gear and extremely power.

The tiago is able to churn lof of power at low speed. And at high speed its extremely powerful.

Ya'll Nibbiars rememeber always to get the discount that you get with you car insurance. The price quoted is always discounted and most of the time the showroom just takes that amount and don't pass it to you. But I gone to the main dealer specified it specially and instead of paying 7,18,000 got the Vehicle for 7,07,000 like that's got a 11,000 discount on the insurances.

And wht the manager said we pass the discount to the peoples who ask for it's and who don't just takes the discount. No one even bothers to see the insurance amount or what depreciation it gets after years.

Ya'll Nibbiars on the March 22, 2010. Satish Sawant collected his first car, a Nano from a showroom in Mumbai. Forty-five minutes later, while driving down the Eastern Express Highway to his home in suburban Mumbai, his car caught fire. Cars catching fire is not unusual, a brand new one catching fire is. And pictures of this flaming Nano spread like wildfire. In the two years since the Nano was first shown to the world, internet penetration had grown manifold in India, and this picture was the lead image across web editions of newspapers.

This coupled with stories of other Nanos catching fire, such as one on Delhi’s Aurobindo Marg which also made headlines, scuppered sales. Initial buyers of the Nano were a split group; those who had bought the Nano as a second or third vehicle loved its convenience, but first-time car buyers found the lack of luggage storage almost debilitating. With Maruti dropping prices on their best-selling Alto small car, and Hyundai India coming up with the Eon, the Nano was never going to fulfil its sales targets.

Even as the Sanand plant came online in an incredibly short span of 14 months, partially because the Singur plant was effectively transferred, it has never hit its maximum production. Sales topped out in 2011-12 at around 75,000 units — less than a third of Alto sales. Subsequent marketing campaigns, targeting urban millennials with a rebranded ‘Twist’ variant, were disastrous. Even as Tata Motors successfully changed its image with other launches, particularly the Tata Tiago, the Nano remains a broken dream but one that refuses to die.

This is non production HBX top variant model and options inside the car may not be the same in final production car . Still this one looks like very good product from Tamo but sadly they had delayed it by now close to 2 years and given opportunity for hyundai to come with XA1 compact SUV model and Citreon may also come out with C3 by next year .

Ya'll Nibbiars the Tata HBX mid range Interior's.

We also had Daewoo Matiz and Ceilo getting caught fire on the drive way back before Nano stories . Also this type incident also reported in other brands too . Nano caught the attention because of media coverage .

To generate a nig power at low RPM is an indicator of a highly fuel efficient engine.

Ya'll Nibbiars today driven the tiago at the speed of 110 km no vibration absolutely non as smooth as any Maruti vehicle but the handling was great and quick even at the high speed. Tata has done a great job at this little but important things.

No it wont. Ford group files serious charges on M&M and they cant sell it in road legal form. US market is to mature to fell for cheaper M&M Jeep knock-offish copies.

Moreover M&M has history of screwing up all new ventures: Reva, Pininfarina, SsangYong, etc. They are not able to handle any acquisition or merger and then close of sell off the company.

Due to this Ford has abandoned the Idea of working with M&M in 50-50% partnership in future and are searching for some other Indian player.
