As per reports, Tata Motors is set to debut a new crossover coupe named “Curb” in 2024, introducing a novel mid-size SUV segment. Further into the timeline, by 2025, Tata aims to reintroduce the iconic Sierra lifestyle SUV, possibly featuring off-road capabilities.

The demand for affordable lifestyle SUVs is evident, as showcased by Mahindra’s success with over 100,000 Thar units sold since its 2020 launch. Impressively, Tata has received 68,000+ bookings for the new Thar, resulting in a waiting period exceeding a year.
