Mumbai: Tata Motors, today, announced the launch of the Tata Venture in Maharashtra. The Tata Venture is a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) with the footprint and manoeuvrability of a hatchback car, but the interior space of a utility vehicle.
The less-than-four-metre-long Tata Venture can comfortably accommodate eight passengers in three front-facing rows and has ample luggage space. A glasshouse effect with plug-in windows for second-row passengers contributes to the distinctive exterior design while the contemporary interiors sport a two-tone beige-and-black theme. Comfort and convenience of both the driver and the passengers have been adequately addressed with dual HVAC, power steering, power windows, reverse parking aid, keyless entry with engine immobiliser and rear wipers.
A semi monocoque construction provides the required rigidity while the robust shell has energy-absorbing crumple zones built in. A collapsible steering and side impact beams protect occupants in an exigency. The Tata Venture meets crash safety norms applicable in the domestic market.
The Tata Venture is powered by a 1.4-litre turbo diesel engine, delivering 71PS power, with best-in-class fuel efficiency among diesel MPVs in the country. The mileage as certified by ARAI is 15.42kmpl.
The Tata Venture will be available in 5, 7 and 8-seater options in three-row front-facing configuration and will be available in a range of five colours and three trim levels.
The Tata Venture comes with a warranty of two years or 75,000km (whichever is earlier). In Maharashtra, it will be available across 42 dealerships (20 passenger car dealerships and 22 commercial vehicle dealerships) in the first phase.
The Tata Venture is priced in the range of Rs4 lakh and Rs5 lakh, ex-showroom Kalyan (Thane district), BS III.
