    It’s almost good but with Innova’s taillight. I’m not saying the taillight is bad but they could have an original taillight made by them.

    Looks like they’ve literally copy/pasted the tail lights off an Innova!! funny.

    Spoils the brand image of tata in this new market as the overall product is actually quite good. Damn.
