These cars are a true representation of our Horizonext philosophy, with best-in-class offerings for performance that yet offers economy and efficiency."

Both vehicles offer gasoline and diesel engines, and they embody three new advances in Tata Motors' offerings. "DesignNext" is a new "design language" meant to merge styling with comfort. "DriveNext" improves drivability by increasing responsiveness and performance while allowing for further fuel economy. "ConnectNext" pushes the driver's experience beyond the seat and into the smartphone, with new control and monitoring experiences from HVAC management to ergonomic preferences. 

Both cars will be launched in India in 2014, with plans to push sales internationally afterward.

In short, you want a voice of reason you can count on.

A 2015 Business Insider article titled, "11 websites to bookmark if you want to get rich," rated The Motley Fool as the #1 place online to get smarter about investing.

And one of the easiest, most enjoyable, most valuable ways to get your regular dose of market and money insights is our suite of free podcasts ... what we like to think of as "binge-worthy finance."
