Next-gen Tata Safari is expected to be based on Harrier’s OMEGA platform, while Sierra was India’s first compact SUV.
We informed you earlier that Tata Motors is working on a 7-seater version of the Harrier SUV, which is expected to be launched in late 2019. The 7-seater model is most likely to carry a new nameplate and will be slightly different than the Harrier in terms of looks. The company hasn’t revealed the name for this SUV, but there are probable brands that could well suit this SUV. Also See – Tata Sierra Is A Special Car – These 5 Facts Prove It
In recent times, we have witnessed the reincarnation of popular brands like Suzuki Baleno and the new Hyundai Santro. Maruti will also re-introduce the ZEN nameplate, while Honda will soon re-launch the popular Civic nameplate. We believe that Tata should bring back the Sierra nameplate in India. And, what could be better than a 7-seater SUV with premium features and modern design to hold this iconic brand badge. Just to jog your memory, the Tata Sierra was India’s first compact SUV which was loved by most buyers and SUV lovers. It was the first Indian car with adjustable steering wheel.
