Tata Motors will showcase the much-awaited crossover Indicruz at the 2010 Auto Expo in New Delhi. The 7 seater crossover is expected to be priced around Rs. 6-8 lakh and will hit the markets in the first half of the 2010. Positioned to take on Toyota Innova, Mahindra Xylo and Chevrolet Tavera, the Indicruz will sport a new generation engine, ABS, airbags, alloy wheels, reverse guide system and keyless entry as standard.
Created with extensive design inputs from London-based Tata Motors European Technical Centre (TMETC), the concept vehicle was first showcased at the 75th Geneva Motor Show in 2005. A decision to go ahead with the production was taken a couple of years later and the vehicle design fine-tuned . Vendors for supply of components were then tied up and prototypes readied for testing earlier this year. According to sources, extensive testing of the prototypes is currently underway in western India.
