    The world is headed to crisis and we're barreling toward it as fast as our legs, wheels, and jet engines can carry us. Fuck that were not just charging into oblivion we're willfully accelerating to it.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I don't want to start an argument/fight (I don't have the time/don't feel like it), but Israel is one of the most hated countries (if not the most hated country, which it probably is) by arabs/muslims.

    On another note: These new cars will cause more gas consumption, but it wouldn't be the main problem. If people were really serious about it they would stop producing large pickup trucks/suvs etc.

    Thank you Captain Obvious. I never would have guessed the 90% Arab middle east didn't like that one lone Jewish state forcefully erected there by foreigners.

    SUV/Truck sales have tanked in the last few years fyi.

    They didn't just wake up in the morning and say "lets hate Israel".
    Israel is playing it stupid, and it made enemies of all the surrounding countries, sooner or later, it would cause it's own downfall. Let's leave it at that, if we get into a discussion in this it won't end.
    one lone Jewish state
    I said the state of Israel, not the jews, and Israel, being alone is powerful. The Palestinians are much worse off than them. Again I say we end it here or it'll cause a dispute.

    SUV/Truck sales have tanked in the last few years fyi.
    My point was being that if people wanted to reduce emission/gas consumption they should start with trucks/Suv's etc. rather than stopping the production of small cars like the TATA as a form of saving gas.

    And now they are trying to sell their (reletively) cheap plastic deathrap in the UK. Seriously, look at the specs, would you drive your kids around in that?

    I would, what's wrong with it ?
    The security tests are the same for everyone, so if they sell this car in Europe it won't be more insecure than others including all the stupid SUVs..

    Well, I think this car is targeted at the people driving motor bikes/scooter in India. It's true that some other classes of cars are safer (not all of them though, but like shataue said some suv's like the hyundai tucson/kia sportage aren't that safe), but these cars are much safer than driving scooters (especially with your kids on it).
    For 2500 you might be better off getting a used car though.

    A) Not as much gas comes from Muslim/Arab countries as you think. I'm working for LUKOIL (and not dealing with Russian oil), so I would know.

    B) I think millions more people driving has a bigger effect than a million SUVs. Call me crazy.
