The Tata Cliffrider is derived from the Tata "Crossover" Concept, which was originally unveiled at the last Geneva Auto Show. Sporting a silhouette like a high-slung sedan, the Tata Cliffrider is a dynamic package that combines lifestyle and sporty usage with the practical functionality of a pick-up truck.

The interior emphasizes space and elegance with an innovative ventilation system and driver-oriented instrumentation stylishly packaged in the steering column.
