Harrier-inspired 2020 Tata Winger with a new front facet and revamped interior was showcased at the Auto Expo. It is expected to launch soon
Tata has stepped-up its design game with the introduction of the second stage of its Impact Design language. The manufacturer has used this design theme with the Harrier and Altroz to give a fresher and bolder identity to its new cars. At the Auto Expo 2020, we got to have a look at the near-production HBX and Sierra concept, which were designed with the Impact Design 2.0. However, there was another vehicle parked at Tata’s pavilion, which looked like it had taken some inspiration from the Harrier. Yes, we're talking of the 2020 Tata Winger facelift.
Tata Motors showcased the 2020 Winger at the recently held Auto Expo, where it caught a lot of attention for its design. The old model that will now be discontinued was designed as if all designers had just a ruler. With straight lines all around, it was never loved for its design. The new version, however, can be said as one of the best looking full-size vans we have ever seen. It gets a Harrier-inspired front end with DRLs mounted on top and headlamps mounted lower down in the bumper. The flat clam-shell like bonnet and humanity line make it look even better. It also had projector fog-lamps in the lower-most part of the front bumper. The new Winger has no inspiration from its predecessor and there isn’t any sign of confluence between the two.
The Winger is updated inside-out, and stepping inside it has now become a little easier. The ingress is more like Force Traveller now, which happens to be its chief competitor. On the inside, it gets revamped interior with a new dashboard and steering wheel making it feel more like a passenger vehicle. It now gets a new infotainment system with a touchscreen display, piano black treatment on the centre console, and silver accents around the AC vents. With a 15+1 seating layout, Winger can ferry a lot of people at once and with all the comfort required. It will have push-back seats like the earlier model, but the extended headroom will ensure of hassle-free movement inside the van.
The 2020 Tata Winger is designed with Tata's family design language.
Designed and developed to compete with the ever successful Force Traveller, the Winger will get power from a 2.0L diesel engine. With a peak power and torque output of 89 hp and 190 Nm, it will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Expected to be launched at a price tag of around 15 lakh rupees in the first-half of 2020, the new Winger will come up a well-packaged product to compete in the market.
