I think that they are Indian, I am not sure. Could be from the TATA group? Are they the ones that have the jeep looking front?

over the years we have had some strange and ugly cars here, a lot from korea, but these things redefine disgusting. Anyone in their right mind would buy a 2 yrd old navara, hilux or anything but this gay looking car.

Full one tonne payload in the twin cab, excellent driver position & even a stereo with MP3 & USB compatibility standard. Although not a serious contender just yet, it has a few features the big boys should fit on their utes.
Initial reports were pretty good other than the poor plastic quality of the trims but the big down side to vehicles of this type is the lack of spare parts & dealer back up in the future.
Forget what they look like, it's being able to do the job that counts & that applys to any brand.

a lot of people laughed at the Lada, but it was a tough little bugger and you didn't have to worry about clear-over-metalic that for sure

Yeah. And it's always good to have one Jeep owner in your travelling crew. We had a good mate who bought a black jeep wrangler just before that gay tv show on SBS made them an icon. He wasn't impressed.

Endless source of amusement picking on them...

:o)

Nothing David, nothing.... Not that there's anything wrong with it... (to coin a phrase from another TV show)

Besides your Jeep is red. Clearly a different case.

LOL

'Eye of the beholder' I suppose.

Triton ute......looks like a pregnant roller skate.

I think I could live with one of these Indian jobs.....maybe.

Cheers....Lionel.

Even a "Gay" would not want to own one of these.

Everyone would want to get into the back of it.

They are Indian and have been around for years apparently. Have them in town at the tractor place...they are dead set ugly...
I asked a similar question quite a while ago about them and now our nissan has been christened "mahindra"......

A blistering 79 Kw of power and 247Nm of torque...WOW!!!!!! From a CRD 2.5.

I think it could just get the skin off a 3 day old custard in low range. LOL

Just a quick question.

Has anyone actually tried one??????

Don't knock it before you try it, it just may surprise you.

Cheap doesn't always mean crap.
