Expected to come packed with a host of features, the price is yet to be confirmed for Nepalese market.
The upcoming Tata Q502 exterior will not only share underpinnings with Land Rover Discovery Sport but also is likely to borrow some styling cues from the SUV. Tata has been emphasizing on the design and styling of all its new models that are based on its IMPACT design theme. As for the Harrier and Q502 models, Tata could use the IMPACT 2.0 design language

Tata will pack the cabin with a host of comfort and connectivity features, such a touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cooled glovebox, multi-zone climate control, leather upholstery, electric sunroof, etc. The long-wheelbase will carve a spacious cabin with ample room for occupants at the front and rear.
Under the hood, the Tata Q502 specifications are expected to get the 2.0-litre Multijet II turbo diesel engine good for maximum power for 170 bhp and peak torque of 350 Nm. Transmission options are likely to include manual as well as an automatic gearbox. There could be a 4WD system and a 2WD drivetrain on option.

Expected to be powered by the 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine, the upcoming Tata Q502 mileage is expected to be around 17 km/l.
The 2.0-litre Multijet turbo diesel engine is expected to offer smooth performance and handling. Likely to be offered with a 4WD drivetrain, the forthcoming Q502 is likely to offer great off-roading performance. Tata’s upcoming seven-seater SUV will take on the likes of Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson in the segment.

While the Harrier will be a five-seater SUV, its seven-seater version will be launched at a later stage.
