Mumbai, March 1

LESS than a week since Toyota launched Innova in India, Tata Motors has unveiled a `crossover' vehicle concept called Tata Xover, at the ongoing Geneva Auto Show.

The Tata Xover will blend the benefits of a family-friendly luxury tourer with refined driving dynamics and the visual cues of an activity-oriented sports utility vehicle, an official statement said on Tuesday.

A 4.85-metre car, it uses a rugged frame-based design with large interior space. It has flexible seating that can accommodate up to seven adults, besides ample cargo area. According to the statement, the vehicle can be fitted with a range of Euro IV engines including Tata Motors' own next generation power trains.

The car would offer traction control, climate control with personalised zones, navigation system, driver-passenger and side-airbags, anti-lock braking system, 4-wheel drive and other comfort, convenience and safety options.

It has independent double wishbone coil spring suspension with a stabiliser bar in front and a five-link suspension with coil springs and stabiliser bar at the rear. "The Tata Xover demonstrates Tata Motors' desire and commitment to innovate and address new market segments," Mr Ratan Tata, Chairman, Tata Group, has said.
