Video: Exploring the Tata Motors Dark Edition range
Not all cars can be had in this blacked-out trim
Finally! Someone decided to give us Indians something significant when it comes to 'special editions'. That someone being Tata Motors and something significant being a special edition that adds more than just some anniversary badges and stripes — presenting the Tata Motors Dark Edition.
I was invited to check out the Dark Edition range in Kolkata, and upon entering the showroom, the four cars did arrest my attention. Yes, barring the Tiago and the Safari, all cars in the Tata stable receive the dark treatment. I break down the range and the vehicles individually to let you in on the changes on offer against the corresponding premium.
While the cars look desirable in this blacked-out guise, an inherent flaw comes along with it. India being a tropical country, has no scarcity of sunlight and warmth, and we know how well black attracts it. So, sitting in a Dark Edition model after leaving it out in the sun would resemble a chicken in an oven.
If I said that wrong, it's because I'm a vegetarian.
