The much-awaited cross over car from Tata, Xover, will be showcased at the Indian Auto Expo in New Delhi this January. The crossover is expected to be priced at the range of Rs. 6-8 lakh. The company has plans to launch the car by the first half of 2010.
Xover will compete against Mahindra Xylo, Toyota Innova, and Chevrolet Tavera. The Xover has three rows of seats and will combine the benefits of a family-friendly luxury tourer with the refined driving dynamics and visual cues of an activity-oriented sports utility vehicle.
The Xover will be a seven seater with a new generation engine and will have safety features including ABS and air bags.
The Xover is designed, taking opinions from London-based Tata Motors European Technical Centre (TMETC). the concept vehicle was first showcased at the 75th Geneva Motor Show in 2005. It was only two years back that the company decided to begin the production of the Xover.
“Xover's production variant will be ready for display at the Auto Expo in New Delhi,” said Nitin Seth, head of car product group, passenger car business unit at TML.
Seth, however, ruled out a production version of Prima, the concept luxury sedan designed by Pininfarina and showcased by TML at the 79th Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.
