    Its a good concept and great move by tata but they need to take care of the minute details where they had been failing even after years. Storme is a example where plant forget to fix fuse, or Quality passed a faulty brake line or shockers or pinion ring comes out @80 km per hour.
    My take Buy tata n befriend all mechanic’s en route, hopes they prove me wrong.

    I Really want TATA Motor to translate this concept in to reality. Bring this as soon as possible into the market and surprise the competition and hopefully give some respite to people who are pining their hope on buying that highly priced ford Ecosport!

    TATA is on a roll now !!!

    I had a feeling that the next 3 years in the Indian automobile market belonged to Honda. Going by what has been showcased by Tata over the last 3 days….Tata’s can pose a serious challenge to all and sundry…Now, I realize the No 2 position dream of late Karl Slym was not a wild dream. There were lots of efforts in the background by the entire team. Brilliant stuff, they’ve got a pulse of the market now…Mighty impressed with all the news coming in….

    The Nexon launch doesn’t seem to be far away after reading through the details. Appears to be a performance car basically. The petrol motor seems interesting going by the specs. Design wise, the rear and side profiles look majestic. The front fascia can be made more aggressive, need to give that in your face, mean, sharp and intimidating look and that would complete the story.

    The should have used the design cues from this model on the new bolt. It is radical and clean lines. Great designs coming from TM, but unfortunately not translating to actual products, definitely will give the Ford Ecosport a run for the money with minor tweaks to the interior to make it more practical, Can’t wait to see the management going gungho to launch this thoroughbred soon.
