Tata Motors next SUV for India - Tata Merlin

Tata Motors is set to launch its new SUV in india – Tata Merlin. Tata Motors new SUV though based on Tata Safari but the company has confirmed that the name would not be Tata Safari Merlin, however it might be Tata Merlin. This did not came as a shock to us because we have been closely watching this strategy of Tata Motors. This is something what Tata Motors did while it launched Manza  based on Indigo sedan.

Drawing inspiration from the Land Rover, the Merlin sports a flatter front end, and a different read without the spare wheel. The engine is the enduring 2.2 litre DICOR turbo diesel unit affording 140 Bhp and 320 Nm. Interiors are pruned with premium looks with an uncanny resemblance to those of the recently launched TATA Aria. One can expect a 2 wheel and a four wheel drive option but an automatic gearbox seems unlikely. Other features include ABS, EBD and airbags which are the default safety apparatus on the Merlin.

Tata Motors has recently launched its SUV Tata Aria 4x2 version and also its hatchback Indica Vista with latest features and lots of Chrome. The hatch back will be available in the showrooms from September 01, on the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi.
