The Tata Sierra, and later Tata Sierra Turbo, was a three door sport utility vehicle produced by Tata Motors of India. It was based on the Tata TL. It was the first automobile to be designed and produced in India. The vehicle also forms the basis for DC Design's Arya Concept vehicle. The Sierra is powered by a 1.9 litre turbodiesel. Initially it had a naturally aspirated engine but later versions were Turbocharged. The later version had distinguishable plastic fender flares and remodelled headlamps shared with Tata Estate. Tata used to provide 4WD models on special request.

In Spain, it was sold as Tata Telcosport (original version) and Tata Gran Telcosport TDI (turbo version).

The car was the first diesel vehicle to be accepted as a personal car in India. It featured some firsts for Indian cars, such as adjustable steering. Other features included power windows, power steering and a tachometer. Production ended in 2000.
