 The new Tata SUV will be built on the company’s Alfa small car platform, which will help Tata to curb cost and price it competitively. Tata will tweak the platform to make it suitable for the SUV. Set to fill the void between Nexon and Harrier, the Blackbird SUV is expected to measure around 4.2m in length. Interestingly, it will be the first product to be developed on the Alfa platform. 

While there is no clarity in terms of engine specifications, the Blackbird SUV is expected to get a more powerful version of the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit that could be calibrated to put out 122 bhp. Likewise, an upgraded version of Tata’s 1.5-litre oil burner could be used for the upcoming compact SUV. Besides, an all-electric version of the SUV is also expected to be rolled out in future. 

The Blackbird SUV is being designed by Tata design Chief Pratap Bose and his team. Visually, expect the model to have a robust semblance, while on the inside, it is likely to be armed to the teeth with high-tech features such as a large touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster among several others. As for the pricing, the new Tata SUV will take on the likes of segment leader Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki’s yet unnamed SUV that is slated to launch sometime in 2020.
