    Look and StyleI am planning to buy a MUV for commercial use and I am impressed with the newly launched Tata Movus that gets alluring design like other contemporary MUVs in the segment. Throughout the profile it gets muscular, tough and stylish designing. I appreciate that this MUV is unlike the oldie SUMO MUV from Tata and is neatly crafted for today's generation. However, I think that the rear part could have been improved and the boxy image could have been given more attractive shape.Comfo read more 24

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Ed's Take: The acceleration produced by the Movus is good, and the last time when the SUV got the facelift, Tata Motors had changed the final gear ratios to improve the acceleration and this has helped to a good extent.

 

It VARICOR diesel engine with a five speed manual transmission gear box delivers a reliable performance and sends torque output to its front wheels. It propels the vehicle in achieving a top speed of around 140 to 150 Kmph, which is rather good. Meanwhile, it assists in crossing the speed barrier of 100 Kmph within 15 to 16 seconds from a standstill.

Tata Movus Engine

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: The 2.2-litre VariCOR engine has good performance, and biggest improvement has been in the drivability and even the refinement of the engine.

 

Its 2.2-litre power plant that comes with a total displacement capacity of 2179cc. It has four cylinders that are further fitted with sixteen valves and is based on a double overhead camshaft valve configuration. It is integrated with a common rail direct injection system that helps in giving a better fuel economy. This four wheeler is also introduced with concentric sleeve cylinder and self actuating clutch. This mill is skillfully coupled with a five speed manual transmission gear box, which enables easier gear shifts and better performance.

This motor has the ability to churn out a peak power of 118bhp at 4000rpm and at the same time, it generates a maximum torque output of 250Nm in the range of 1500 to 3000rpm. It is compliant with all the emission norms of Bharat Stage (BS) IV.

Mileage

Ed's Take: Tata Movus gets the 2.2-litre all aluminium engine that is highly fuel efficient and light as well. The fuel efficiency has been improved on the Movus as it now has the VariCOR engine, than the DiCOR.

 

Its diesel engine runs on a common rail based direct injection fuel supply system, which helps it in returning a decent mileage. It is capable of giving a fuel economy of around 11 to 12 Kmpl within the city, which goes up to 15 to 16 Kmpl approximately, when driven on highways.

Power of Tata Movus

Its motor has the ability to churn out a maximum power of 118bhp at 4000rpm and yields a peak torque output of 250Nm in the range of 1500 to 3000rpm, which is quite good for city maneuvering.

Stereo & Accessories

Ed's Take: The Movus gets power windows, power steering, aftermarket music system on the top of the line version.

 

Absence of infotainment system even in the top end variant is a minus. Nevertheless, the owners of this vehicle can still get it installed with an advanced audio unit which comes with a CD, MP3 player, and a radio tuner as well.
