If M,M can offer optional Airbags and ABS
from the base variant onwards why not Tata.
Ratan Tata had earlier commended M,M for their pace of innovation and development. Looks like they are going to be number 2 in this aspect for a while.
The new Scorpio, though with the same strategy as the Storme in terms of using an old body if thats correct to say, seem to have pulled it off much better-atleast from the PR point of view. All TV programmes had images of the old and new chassis ,side by side and all anchors selling the new ride quality. However, reading between the lines,they did not seem that impressed .."wish they had gone monocoque" " at higher speeds..".
Overall though they were impressed with the improvement at the price point it sells.
The Storme at 1lakh atleast more per variant does not seem to have their sympathy and perhaps hence the buying public?
