A new flagship model from Tata Motors is expected to arrive in 2018. It is expected to share a platform with the Land Rover Discovery and will be positioned above the soon-to-be-launched Hexa SUV. 

A common platform means, this new Tata SUV (codenamed Q501) will have a common structural layout and components with the Discovery Sport but will obviously be built to be a much lower priced vehicle. Most importantly it will look completely different from the baby Land Rover to give Tata its own distinct identity.

Reports suggest that the SUV will be powered by Fiat sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 170bhp and around 360Nm of torque. This will be the same engine powering the new Jeep C-SUV which is expected to debut next year. Expect manual and automatic transmission options for this new SUV.

It seems possible that all major manufacturers are now likely to bring SUVs into the D-segment of the Indian market thanks to a spurt in demand for vehicles in this price range. Hyundai will bring in the Tucson while Honda is believed to now be contemplating the HR-V for the Indian market. Tata’s move then, to bring in this SUV looks to be a step in the right direction. Expect a concept unveiling next year and possibly a launch at the 2018 Auto Expo.
