Mumbai, Mar 1 (UNI) Tata Motors has unveiled the Tata Cliffrider, a ''Multi-Utility Lifestyle Vehicle'' concept, at the 76th Geneva Auto Show.
Tata Motors Managing Director Ravi Kant said, ''The Tata Cliffrider concept vehicle further demonstrates the company's commitment to innovate and address new product categories.'' 'Cliffrider' is derived from the Tata ''Crossover'' concept, which was originally unveiled at the last Geneva Auto Show, an official release here stated.
The exterior styling cues carry forward the visual theme of the Tata Crossover. The door trims show a continuity of form due to the disguised central pillar, with the front door hinged at its leading edge and the rear door at its trailing edge, allowing better access to the rear seats, the release stated.
The interior emphasis's space and elegance with a ventilation system and driver-oriented instrumentation have been stylishly packaged in the steering column. Long beam lights are mounted on the roll bar and a load-body suited to carry mountain bikes, skis or snowboards reinforce the ''fun and adventure'' image. It can also carry goods in the load tray which can be hidden from view as well as protected from weather conditions by a sliding cover.
Configured to be fitted with a range of Euro IV engines, including a V6 Petrol and next generation Common Rail diesel power trains, it would offer multiple airbags, ABS, Traction Control, Navigation Control and a host of other contemporary features.
The Tata Cliffrider would be available in 4x2 as well as 4x4 versions.
Also on display is the Tata Crossover, further updated from the concept that Tata Motors unveiled last year. The Indica Hatchback, Indigo Sedan, Indigo Station Wagon and the Safari DiCOR Sports Utility Vehicle are also being showcased at the ongoing exposition.
