Other then 4x4 , assumed zero turbo lag , good handling for a BOL , power left even after pushing it to 160 kmph and great paint quality and decent rich looking interiors ,abs
what else strome has to take the market on strome ?
To be honest NOTHING . What sets apart a car from others are what extra features are offered in the price asked .
Tata has been completely lazy , lethargic and are not atall asking or even intrested in what the new age consumer wants .
They are in a reality distortion bubble thinking they are some premiuim brand in India after acquiring jaguar land rover .
Even after massive feedback for a 2 din system they have been adamant of not giving it . I mean was it so hard for them to provide it ?
I can still understand if they had given a nice integrated single din system , but what they are providing now looks as if the head unit is purchased from some auto assecories shop and put before giving delivery to the coustomer .
On top of it they are proudly bragging landrover team has been involved deeply in devloping strome . And if this is even true then iam doubtfull on the sanity levels of land rover team also who can't think how a modern dash of any vehicle plus 9 lakhs must be desgined .
If they can't price it rightly I think they are going to add 1 more nice car in the list of their duds list.
I would suggest here delay the launch more launch in 2013 but come with some fascinating dash with some eye candy .
If not just price it with a premiuim of no more then 75,000 that is 9 lakhs for the base model now .
