The Tata Estate was a station wagon car produced by Tata Motors. Already a major player in the heavy vehicle segment, this was the company's first attempt at building a passenger car. The car was considered fairly advanced during its time and had many features which were not common among other Indian cars available at the same price range then. The car came with power windows, power steering and a tachometer. The car performed better than expected, but fell out of production due to its underpowered engine.
The Estate's exterior is based on Mercedes-Benz station wagons made at the time of conception, in particular to the T-series estate-type cars.
The Tata Estate was placed into production in 1992 until 2000, being available with a 5-speed manual transmission. This followed after the production of the Tata Sierra in 1991. It was initially plagued with problems due to high fuel consumption, faulty electrical systems and suspensions before they were eventually fixed in subsequent productions.
