  1. I to did like the Ertiga. iBut in the brief TD i have noticed that on slightest cut the moddle row passengers were thrown to the opposite end. Also we are all 6 ft people, People in all rows will make life miserable with all seat adjustments even for short trip. TAUREAN CZAR2012-05-08 14:31:05
  2. Maruti Swift Dezire becomes more costly! Prices of the Dezire Diesel raised by 2-2.5% today across all models. Now the already over priced Swift gets more costly. But the Client base of the Dezire has shifted towards the Ertiga.This is because it's only around 2 lakhs more that the Dezire with the same driving comfort.
  3. Heard in the past that Tata motors is trying to develop a new MPV, a-la The ERTIGA, on the Vista-Manza Platform, that also a Station Wagon is also in the making. We also heard that Carls Foster ordered stopping of all the new launches till all glitches are ironed out on existing platforms except ARIA. Hope TML gets it right this time, But Maruti this time stole the show being a first mover here. About ARIA, hope TML plays the cards right time to revive the ARIA with better features and pricing.
  4. I don't think TATA is going to strap on the 800cc engine (to be precise a 700cc engine is been developed for the Nano)either in Diesel or Petrol onto the Indica. I think it is a 3 cylinder, 1050cc engine TML displayed at the Auto expo 2012. The engine is expected to be rough as it's only a 3 CYLINDER and TML plans to add a Balancer shaft to iron out vibrations. These are pics of this engine posted here from Auto Expo. This engine develops 685 ps @ 140 RPM which has 12 valves (4 valves per cylinder)which should reduce the costs of production and also adequately pull the vehicle which is now lighter than the V1 versions and also few BHP higher than the V1 engine.
  5. More news: Harman signs agreement with Tata Motors for supply of branded audio infotainment solutions Harman, the global audio and infotainment giant announced yesterday that it had signed a strategic multi-year agreement with Tata Motors to develop and supply branded audio and infotainment solutions for the latter's cars. Harman will utilise its world class engineering and development teams to create custom audio, navigation as well as multi-media solutions for vehicles across Tata's model lines. The limited edition Tata Aria, the cross over MPV from its stable will be the first vehicle to have Harman products, which include a premium branded audio system under Harman's JBL brand. The 360 watt JBL sound system boasts of having features such as ten speakers with a dedicated subwoofer. This premium audio brand was premiered at the Delhi Auto Expo 2012 held early in January this year. Dinesh Paliwal, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harman said: "The agreement we have with Tata Motors is a milestone in the growth of branded audio and infotainment system for the Indian market. We are very proud and honoured to be selected by Tata Motors as their trusted supplier. What is more, our development teams will work very closely with Tata Motor's engineering staff to create unique products that will surprise and delight customers. In tandem, we will set a new benchmark in OEM installed sound and infotainment in the domestic market". Speaking about the agreement with Harman, PM Telang, Managing Dirctor - India Operations, Tata Motors said: "We will intensify the application of the infotainment and acoustic platforms developed by Harman and offer world class solutions in this domain in its future Passenger Car platforms both for the Indian and export markets. Furthermore, Harman's innovative technologies and large presence in all the premium cars in the world market will help us take our cars to the next level". Source: SULEKHA
  6. Looks like TATA is al set to unleash phase 2 innings of the TATA ARIA. Tata displayed a new refurbished variant of ARIA at the AUTOEXPO 2012. It boasted of captian middle row seats, Harmann Audio Systems and an all=new 6 speed Automatic. If we look at the portifolio no vehicle in TML profile is luxury enough to hold a Harrmann System which is quietly expensive, and obviouslt ARIA fits the bill. ________________________________________________________ Harman signs $500 mn deals with Chinese, Indian carmakers Harman International Inc. said it signed more than $500 million worth agreements to provide in-car entertainment systems to three carmakers in China and India. Harman will provide these systems to China's Geely Motors and BAIC Motors and Tata Motors Ltd it said in a statement on Monday. The company, which provides audio products for cars made by BMW, Audi, Daimler, Toyota and Ferrari, was in talks with Indian auto makers as part of its plans to expand in the emerging markets, Reuters reported last year. The company said it was on track to record $1.5 billion in revenue in Brazil, Russia, India and China by 2015. _________________________________________________________ So expect the New Aria to boast of all new features and upgrades to take on the XUV 500 by Mahindra. I hope atleast now TML rationalizes the price and fit it into the right bracket.
  7. WOW !!! @shanthanreddy THAT WAS A SPLENDID SHOW. No one got us such a detailed picture review.... Really sorry I missed it and my ticket got simply wasted. GOOD SHOW. Waiting for more pictures....
  8. Yes I have bought mine too. Now all set to fulfil my long standing dream I have been postponing from 2006 since this desire arouse.
  10. I think HM will most probably launch 2 versions of Amby. First one will surely be a CS version. Another I think will be a commercial version of the Veer with a hart top carrier.
  11. Here are the set of pics of the all new 2012 Pulsar

  13. One more rendering posted on ICB. This pic gives more true on road feel posted on ICB. Good job!
  14. Now with the clear pictures of the dash board we get info that the Safari will now be equipped with features even on the base model as this on is. Now I can say that the old Safari model will surely be extinct and the Merlin will take it place. Now the Merlin will hold these features on the base model Air Bags ABS with EBD 2nd & 3rd Aircon vents Music system standard Elevated head room for third row passengers Follow me head lights lumbar support on front wheels From the second model onwards Electrical ORVM with mounted indicators Body coloured cladding Reverse sensors Sensor activated head lights and wipers Remote operated central locking Bluetooth enbedded double DIN system Steering mounted audio controls Seat hight adjuster with lumbar support Top end model Steering mounted audio controls with Cruise control Rear reverse camera Alloy wheels TCS ( if TML can Afford) Leather seats Onboard DVD player with screens on head rest And expect it to start from around 8 Lakhs ex-Delhi. This should be a cracker of a price and can take on the XUV head on. What Say You? Exclaimer: This is purely my point of view. TAUREAN CZAR2011-10-18 17:57:53
  15. The alloys look gorgeous !!! Much better than the bi coloured on the current ELAN. Mope TML sticks to these ones from now on.
  16. Some interior pics of the XUV500 have been leaked here are they. TAUREAN CZAR2011-09-22 15:19:26
  17. New Sumo Grande..oops..TATA GRANDE caught totally undisguised ! TATA has made multiple appempts to push the TATA SUMO GRANDE in to the market. But has met again and again with a lukewarm response. But due to the SUMO tag it got many less takers. Now TML has modified the vehicle with many upgrades and was found totally undisguised by our colleagues on oncars which I have posted them here. What seen here is the Sumo & Martk II names dropped and also new decals on the exterior and refreshed interiors. But seriously TML should have given the car a totally new dashboard to hold a double din system and some features like ABS to attract people as on the XYLO from M&M.
  18. Too expensive. Better not talk about it because you not going to get one of the best badges and reliability for such a premium and on top it's only a 5 seater. It will surely funk like the Terracan and likes.
  19. What ever you say. Etios twins are a disaster for Toyota's reputation.
  20. Here is the comparative pricing of the new cars all in diesel variants VISTA QUADRAJET BS IV 479,915.00 528,850 546,907 606,700 MARUTI SWIFT DDiS 5,17,000 5,61,000 6,38,000 , TOYOTA ETIOS LIVA 5,40,000 5,87,000
