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.

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?
