Tata Motors is believed to be working on two all-new SUVs and helping them in the process is none other than Land Rover. Livemint reports that one of the SUVs will be priced at about INR 10-15 lakhs and a commercial launch during 2016 can be expected. Details about the second SUV are still unknown at this point in time.

Both SUVs will be sold only under the Tata nameplate. A company official said -"We are talking about an SUV of the size of a Land Rover product but the attributes will not be anywhere close to them. Their inputs will come in architecture, performance, technologies, better body stiffness. That’s where we are planning to tap into their knowledge".

Another source who will be working with Tata and Land Rover teams on analytics and IT programming said that discussions between teams in Pune and UK have started and finally, another person who is also familiar with the development, said that the launch of the new vehicle could mean an early exit for the Aria. However the platform would see upgrades for use on the next generation SUVs. Land Rover’s expertise on suspensions systems would be utilized for the Aria platform SUV.

Tata’s Horizonext strategy has a series of products planned until the year 2020. Among the series of new products that would be launched, Tata has indicated that softroaders, both compact and mid-size, would play an important role. [clap]

they need to give a R.I.P to Aria & Sumo Grande and bring the two new SUV's by 2016. Hopefully they will succeed. But they need to change their image first.

What's preventing TATA from getting some help in designing from JLR, the current designs are nothing to speak about.

I doubt the authenticity of the news. A company official who is a member of the team developing the vehicle will never (ever) talk about what he and his team are into.

If, somehow, the news turns out to be true. Then it is a good thing. Expect a car even bigger than SAFARI. But to expect it to see the daylight by 2016, would be a pipe dream, as the project is just at the conceptualization stage (as per the report ie).

A well move from TATA motors IMO. I loved the new strome design but its needed a re design to fix proper third row seats and heard about Grande face lift as well. Hope these all changes and new launches will give a new life to Tata motors.
