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.
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.
