huh, this Citroen/Jeep "double-dekker" lights set-up is spreading like a disease

Indeed! Although let's give credit where it is due : it is the Nissan Juke that did this first. Citroen followed and so did, apparently, everyone else. But years after.

Quite generic, but by Tata standards, that 's a huge compliment; It seems to follow a very similar design concept to the Kia SP, probably this is what is regarded the best look in India...

Credit is due to the Fiat Multipla:

true, though I bet we could find few others trough last few decades... you know, "what was first, chicken or the egg" game
but, it amuses me how somehow "fashion" spreads trough the industry... I remember 4-5 years back, when Citroen was searching for new "family front" but those "chinese" designs with chevrons entering front lights didn't really work and "multi layer" front light groups of C4 Picasso and Cactus was hard to imagine on more "conventional" models... unlike Cactus, these (like eventual C5 successor) should have "a grille" in more "dominant fashion"... then, in 2015, they showed Aircross concept, which combined grille with "hidden" front lights as main design feature of vehicles front with "double-layer" lights signature of Picasso and Cactus...:



up till then only Fiat showed something similar, and even there "grille" was only "hinted" with its outline:



and I believe VW with T-Roc concept, but in more "clasic" way with grille above the DLR's...:



source: netcarshow

but all three presented within few months, so if we count in the time from first sketches to presentation, they must got the idea independently...
these days we can find this "front lights incorporated/DRL's above" (or vice-versa) grille shape on almost every other concept and even on few production models... must be a fashion thing


btw.: Multipla was goofy but rather simpatic and really practical car in person... pictures are rather "unkind" towards it ;)
