Continuing its legacy of showcasing awesome concepts, Tata Motors has unveiled the Tata Sierra Reborn concept at the ongoing Auto Expo. While many might not remember the Sierra, those who do will be extremely happy with this development of bringing back the Sierra nameplate.
The Sierra concept is likely to be based on the ALFA platform, that has been utilised in the recently launched Altroz premium hatchback. Tata Motors haven’t revealed any specifications, but says the SUV will be powered by an electric powertrain. Coming to the fuel powered engines, we expect the Sierra production version to get a 1.2 litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel engines as in the Nexon but with higher power and torque figures.
DESIGN AND FEATURES
Not only is the exterior design trendy and futuristic, it surely brings back memories of the Sierra, especially from the rear three quarter. The squared up wheel arches, high bonnet, i.e., the features of a conventional SUV have blended extremely well with futuristic design elements like the sleeker grille, large glass panels on the side sweeping to the roof, the use of a continuous LED taillamp at rear. The production version is expected to get most of the design elements from the concept, just like the Harrier.
The interior will be loaded with features and technology. Upfront will be a touchscreen infotainment system mounted on the central console. Just like the Altroz, the Sierra will come with a host of safety features that includes airbags, ABS with EBD, hill descent control and other usual safety features. The concept gets large off-road tyres, a high ground clearance. An all-electric powertrain giving power to all the four wheels will make it the king of off-roading.
LAUNCH AND COMPETITORS
Though no details available on the launch, we can expect the production to start sometime next year or beginning of 2022. Given the uniqueness (3 door configuration) in its design, and the legacy it will carry forward, we expect the Sierra to pose huge threat to its rivals such as Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti S-Cross, Volkswagen Tiguan and Skoda Vision IN. Once launched, the Sierra will fill the gap between the Nexon and the Harrier.
