      I'm not too sure about Hyundai if they will launch 3 heavyweights in the Indian market in the same year. Ditto for Toyota, with the Prius and Etios launch expected in 2010. What is the source of this data dude?

      Cheers

      Are they serious with the pricing!

      If so, gentlemen & ladies, we might just have a segment redefiner here!

      I just hope TATA got it right, in all departments, the first time, here!

      Art of laura ,i took a test drive of the q7 4.2tdi last week.

      They have added LED lights and done some minor changes some months back.

      The next model ,no change in visuals,but they are upgrading the 6 speed automatic to the 8 speed auto.

      The present petrol v8 will be discontinued for a more powerful 3.0l v6.

      Mclass is scheduled for replacement ,but no news.

      There is a new Q7 slated for 2011. Google has rendered snaps as well as spyshots and I did also read it in Autocar UK or Topgear.
