Tata Motors has some rocking production-ready concepts for the Geneva Motor Show. The first Indica was showcased there and thereon launched in India. Many other cars have followed suit. This time around, the Tata H2X micro SUV concept was showcased. While we know that the SUV will likely be called Hornbill in the future, today was the first time the world saw it in concept form. It is built on the Alpha Arc configuration that is also the basis for the Altroz hatchback. The H2X will be showcased in production form at the Auto Expo 2020. Sales will commence thereafter.
Give me all that you know about the Tata H2X micro SUV
For starters, the design is inspired from bigger brother, the Harrier. Not only this, the micro SUV has a stance closer to the Mahindra KUV100 than the Maruti Ignis. This should endear it to the car buying public. Moreover, the Tata H2X micro SUV measures 3,840mm x 1,822mm x 1,635mm in length, width and height. As far as wheelbase is concerned, it is 2,450mm.
While there isn’t much detail on the micro SUV available at the moment, we assume that it will come with BS-VI compliant turbocharged petrol as well as diesel engines. These will likely be borrowed from the Altroz hatchback. 6-speed manual transmissions will be standard while AMTs will be on offer as an option.
A look at the interior images of the H2X and one can see that this should be the most advanced Tata interior that we’ve seen till now. A 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system takes centre stage while the instrument console itself too is a LCD. There are removable Bluetooth speakers in the door pads. These may not be brought into the production model though. From the look of it, the H2X should be spacious too. Not only this, dual airbags, ABS with EBD as well as ISOFIX child seat mounts will be standard. There will also be rear parking sensors as well as a reverse camera.
The Tata H2X micro SUV price in India will slightly be more than the Tiago. Expect Tata to launch the SUV with a very competitive price tag.
