At the Auto Expo 2020, Tata Motors Globally Unveiled the all-new Tata Winger which is claimed to set new standards in the commercial passenger segment in terms of safety, comfort, style and space. The all-new Tata Winger is now in-line with the brand’s Impact 2.0 design language which is seen on the Harrier SUV and the Altroz hatchback.
On the exterior, the Tata Winger features a chrome grille that blends with the LED daytime running lights, connecting the front fascia. The main headlight unit is placed lower and is now integrated with the bumper and comes surrounded in a matte black insert along with two rounded fog lights placed lower on the bumper. On the side, the all-new Winger gets dual-tone 5-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels, sliding windows, ‘Winger’ body graphics, squared-off wheel arches, entry-step for easy ingress and egress on the left-hand side door and a prominent belt-line that runs towards the rear. The rear gets LED taillights and split side opening doors.
On the interior, the Tata Winger features a dark-themed cabin, twin-tone fabric seats, fresh new dashboard design, a three-point steering wheel as seen on other Tata cars, centrally located touchscreen infotainment system and air-conditioning rotary knobs set in the same plane, an analogue speedometer and tachometer with a digital multi-information display in between, piano black finish and silver trim around the infotainment and air-con vents. The Tata Winger comes in a 2×1 seat configuration and the people mover can accommodate 15 passengers and 1 driver.
Powering the Tata Winger is a BS6 emission compliant, 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 89 bhp of power and 190 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Tata Winger features a monocoque chassis which is lighter as compared to a body on frame chassis which translates to better performance and fuel efficiency. The monocoque chassis also provides better NVH levels as compared to a body on frame chassis.
The Tata Winger is targeted towards fleet operators, school bus operators and commercial tour operators. The all-new Tata Winger is expected to be priced around the INR 12 lakh mark and will rival the likes of the Force Traveller.
