Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Based on a re-engineered version of the Indica’s X0 platform.

IAB understands that one of the Tata Kite variants (of sedan and hatchback) will be revealed to the Indian media in the first week December 2015. This falls in-line with reports stating that its mass production will commence in Sanand in the same month. Dealers are dispatched vehicles usually within weeks of production commencement.
