    Would hate to be in a crash in that over here. But most of the streets in India are very very clogged so you'd only get to about 5-10 mph anyway. But I like the owners vision of getting the whole family off a scooter and into one of these. The guy has some common sense and hopefully the Indians will pick up on this car and it may help save some lives.
    Its a jam thing

    Don't know about front on crashes, but what about a rear shunt??
    Have you ever pulled up behind a smart car?
    The seats are so close to the back you can see the driver's dandruff!!

    a friend of my fathers had a Tata jeep years ago.
    it was 100% the worst car ive ever seen.
    i would drive it if i had to but i wouldnt buy one not even if they were £500 new.

    Almost my exact words to the girlfriend, until I finally tried one.

    The Tata does look like a bit of a monster, needs slammed on some 15s.
