      Tata Sierra is Back? Concept Showcased at Auto Expo 2020

      If there was any approprete time to launch the Sierra then this was now.

      Tata Motors showcased Sierra Concept at the Auto Expo 2020.

      The concept looks drool worthy and ultra modern. Tata is notorious of designing and introducing products ahead of their time, thats why they fall but don't fail becasue they keep innovating and expderimenting. Tata for India is like what VW is for Germany in terms of Designs, R&D, innovations and practicality but the differnece is VW is successfull at there and Tata is not that much successfull here. Hope the situation changes over time.

      Concept looks great and TATA try to remain true to their concept. Hope this sees light of the day, though I think this will be more of a lifestyle product seeing lower sales.

      More recently, Tata production vehicles are quite close to concepts. Or in other words, Tata concepts are very close to what can become a production car, unlike most other auto companies. I think one just needs to replace these wheels and one can imagine how would a production version Sierra will look like.

      The concept seems to have 4+1 doors instead of the 2+1 doors in earlier Sierra. It would make it practical for our market, as most Indians do not seem to like 2-door car. And it seems to be a bit longer as compared to old Sierra.

      This is electric. And any Electric car is more of a lifestyle car. Also, more expensive Tata cars are more of a lifestyle products. So it will definitely have super low numbers, just shall have high aspirational value.

      Actually its 3 + 1 doors.

      They have followed a Hyundai Veloster type style with only the left door being openable.

      In my opinion the Tata Sierra has huge potential of versatile compact SUV with lot of capabilities which other existing compact SUVs fail to deliver, but that oportunity is defeated by adding the rear door.

      If the side glass at rear is offered in detachable functionality then Sierra has potential of being a pickup, open roof four seater, convertible, camper and what not, lot of customisation possibilities in one single compact vehicle.

      Rather Sierra should be offered like this only because we already have plenty of compact SUV/MUV options with conventional four-seater/four-door functionalities, even Tata itself has many decent options, whats more exclusivity Sierra offers except the exterior styling compared to those existing vehicles if offered in conventional seating and door format?

      Here is the edit of what I am trying to convey:-

      Why would they do this?
      What was the need? Anyone wanting 4 doors could've just gotten a harrier.

      Really starting to dig the current gen Thar solely because its a 2 door.

      That wide side glass window thing means it's not meant for India. Probably for colder countries?

      There are very few who would want 2 door version, while most others would want a 4 door version for practicality. Long back had lot of rides in so many 2 door cars (Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi and Jimny), and the getting in and out was really a task. It is actually 3 doors + hatch, a good compromise between 2 and 4 doors. Look wise it would satisfy those needing 2-door car, while it would solve purpose of those needing 4 doors: easy accessibility to the rear row.

      Those who have money, buy cars with panoramic sunroofs. Others like us buy the ones without any or with tiny ones. This side window glass is not much different from the panoramic sunroofs. But panoramic sunroofs have a opaque fabric/whatever slider to block the sun completely, not sure how it will be for side windows. Given that Sierra is based on Altroz platform and a fixed glass would be much cheaper than openable glass sunroof, it might be cheaper and affordable for those desiring panoramic sunroofs.

      Honestly speaking what is the USP of the Sierra? What does it have that the competitors dont?
      Answer: Nostalgia

      From what I understand, this is not going to be a Ladder on Frame 4x4. This one's going to be a Monocoque, possibly electric (but more likely combustion engine) lifted hatchback(also called crossover these days). So the only thing thats going to pull anyone is sheer nostalgia. And this one fails at that, if seen from the left, and passes when seen from the right.

      I hope the doors are automatic. It's about time we caught up with the rest of the world with automatic doors.
