Tata Safari Merlin front-endWe've brought scores of Tata Safari Merlin spy shots and featured it yesterday on our video discussion post asking if its the pick of the festival season launches. Some of you said it was going to rob the Scorpio of its numbers and mark the comeback of the Safari nameplate.

A recent spotting by IndianAutosBlog.com fan Anant Prakash from Pune reveals a very important design feature. The headlights are L-Shaped and the proportions are flat and a bit boxy. Not sure if the Range Rover has influenced Tata Motors a bit too much.

Anant's image also shows the elevated fog lights lurking beneath the camouflage. The top-end model will have indicators on the outside mirrors and the alloy wheel design is inspired by the Aria.

The Safari Merlin will use many components of the Aria. There is a chance that the vehicle will come out in October. If not, it will take until January's Delhi Auto Expo for it to arrive.
