Tata Motors have announced the launch of their Venture MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) in the state of Maharashtra. The venture is based on the Tata Ace platform, and is a passenger variant of the load-hauling Ace, albeit with more car-like traits. The Venture is a 4 meters long vehicle, and can accommodate up to eight passengers in three front facing rows. However, you can opt for the 5 and 7 seater options as well. The venture comes equipped with AC, power steering, power windows, reverse parking sensors, rear wipers, keyless entry and engine immobilizer, although some of these features are optional. The interior of the Venture has been done up in a two-tone black and beige theme.
On the safety front, the Venture features a semi monocoque construction with crumple zones to absorb impact during a collision. A collapsible steering wheel assembly and side impact beams further work towards making the Venture meet all the safety norms.
Powered by a 1.4 litre turbo diesel engine putting out 71 PS of power, the Venture delivers an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 15.42kmpl and comes with a 2 year or 75,000km warranty. The venture will be available in 5 colours and 3 trim levels. Priced in the range of Rs 4 lakh – 5 lakh ex Thane, the Venture will be available across 42 dealerships to start with.
