As you guessed it, the Tata Vista D90 Xtreme concept is a wanna be SUV. With a raised suspension and the so called rough road package, the Vista D90 Xtreme is quite similar in concept to the likes of Skoda Fabia Scout, VW Cross Polo, Hyundai HB20X and Honda Fit Twist.

The preview of the concept suggests that Tata Motors is studying the market for its production and it could be one of those few products which the company has promised to launch this year.

The car’s suspension is raised by 25mm and the rear suspension’s dampers are retuned. The D90 Xtreme concept has lots of exterior bits that justify its name. The front bumper has dramatic detailing with chin spoiler, hexagonal lower air dam and side air vents. The bonnet has vents too.

The rear of the car gets dual tone bumper and importantly, the spare wheel is mounted on the hatch door which is painted in black along with the roof.

Though it is called as the D90 Xtreme, the concept employs a 105 PS version of the engine which is equipped with what Tata calls as the Power Boost Module. However, no further explanation regarding the technology was made.

Tata Motors could launch the production version of the Tata Vista D90 Xtreme sometime this year. Fiat is also likely do something similar with their B Segment SUV and on the premium end of the spectrum, we have the Volvo V40 Cross Country entering India.

A raised hatchback with off road package or a compact crossover SUV, which one is your choice?

    one need to pull down the rear wheel to open the rear hatch door rite

    Having 16″ wheel instead of 15″ will give the 1″ GC where they have beefed up?
    how one can ope the boot-is like an gate system which might he little cumbersome process

    Even if TATA brings the concept to life, their problem would be pricing. TATA still hasn’t realized that people are not ready to pay the premium they have started demanding for their cars. Result – Aria & Venture. Now, any price point more than 5.5L would make Mahindra Quanto more desirable due to its MPV genes. Hope TATA gets as aggressive in pricing as it is in experimenting with new concepts. BTW WHY DON’T YOU BRING A SUB 4M GRANDE AT 6L or perhaps a revised Victa Sub 4M (Short, narrow, low in height) at 5 L ? Good Luck TATA.

    I like its sporty appearance. Are you pretty certain that this concept will make it to the production?

    A raised hatchback with off road package or a compact crossover SUV- doesn’t matter to me as long as it appeals to my taste and budget ๐Ÿ™‚

    Like Sudeep pointed, the spare wheel is NOT mounted on the hatch door. Please edit it.

  5. Sudeep says:

    Its not hatch mounted sparewheel, as the spare wheel for 16″ rims will be very heavy, to be mounted on sheet metal hatch door, its a wheel mount from the tow hook area, refer the pictures again

    Although a raised hatchback with off road package and a compact crossover SUV are quite similar; but it doesn’t matter if it gets the work done. Some-days backs, I thought about this exact stuff and there we get. Current G.C in Vista is 165, so for Xtreme its 165+25=190mm, not bad. The spare wheel mounted on the rear hatch-door though looks oversize and I wanted meaty C-pillar with slanting waistline for better look. But overall, I’m Lovin it.

  7. Ramesh says:

    Tata should revise the grill completely to maybe give a Grill similar to Safari Storme. And for God’s sake TATA please remove that tail lamp. Indigo, Vista, Nano and even Aria has the same tail lamp. People are sick of seeing all TATA cars look like the 1998 Indica. Even the Aria looks like a blown up Indica.

    The best option would have been a totally new bodyshell. See what Renault has done with the Duster..essentially a Logan platform, but with a totally different bodyshell.
