In 1991 Tata launched the Sierra which was followed immediately by the Estate in 1992. The Tata Indica, India’s first fully indigenous Indian passenger car was launched in 1998 and although most auto critics did not approve of it at f rst, its spacious interior, frugal diesel engine and value for money attracted the Indian audiences by the thousands making it one of the most successful cars in India ever.
Tata’s current portfolio consists mainly of affordable passenger cars. The hatchbacks include the Indica, Vista, Bolt and of course, the Nano. The Tata Nano was globally well received as a bold statement of engineering prowess by an Indian manufacturer. However, the Nano has not seen the sales that were originally anticipated due to initial teething problems and the brand’s overall appeal. Tata’s sedan portfolio consists of the IndigoCS, the Manza and the Zest. Tata’s SUV’s include the Sumo, the Sumo Grande, the Safari Storme and the flagship Aria.
Tata’s cars in India are known to be affordable and excellent value for money. They are spacious, usually offer both petrol and diesel options, and have great fuel economy.

The manufacturer has also recently launched a brand new motor, the Revotron, which is a 1.2-litre, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine that comes on the new Zest compact sedan and Bolt family hatchback.Read MoreRead Less
