  • Tata Motors has been testing the Tata Hornbill on Indian roads recently.

Tata Motors has started the New Year on an aggressive note with the launch of the Tata Altroz in January. It has a series of vehicles lined up for launching over the year. The company has been releasing teasers of its Auto Expo line-up for some time now. The Tata Hornbill H2X micro SUV appears in the latest teaser. This vehicle will be revealed at the Auto Expo in its production-spec avatar.

The H2X concept had earlier been displayed at the 2018 Expo. Tata Motors has begun testing the H2X on Indian roads. Reports say that it will be available very soon with the dealers all over India. In the meanwhile, one can view the production-spec concept of the Tata Hornbill H2X at the Auto Expo.

The micro SUV appears to be larger than the Mahindra KUV100 NXT if we go by its specifications. The vehicle sports dimensions of 3840mm X 1822mm X 1635mm (LxWxH). The 2450mm wheelbase makes it a comfortable micro SUV that is bigger than the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and the Renault Kwid in all respects. The Mahindra KUV100 NXT is slightly taller than the H2X. Otherwise, H2X is a bigger vehicle.

The Tata Hornbill H2X (Code Name – X445) bears a resemblance to the Tata Harrier as it comes with a boxy appearance and split headlamps. The alloy wheels give it a muscular look. The teaser also showcases other exterior features like the contours on the doors and fenders. The vehicle will feature unique triangular-shaped tail-lights.

The Tata H2X interiors will feature a free-standing infotainment screen as its USP. The sunroof adds to the masculine appearance. Multiple colour-coded bits and the cuts and creases on the interior add to the attraction quotient.

Tata Altroz was the first vehicle to be manufactured on the ALFA modular platform. This micro SUV will be the second such offering from Tata.

On the engine front, the Tata H2X will be powered by a BS6-compliant 1.2L petrol engine that pairs with a 5-speed manual transmission system. Tata has confirmed that they will be introducing an AMT version in the future. An EV variant is also on the cards. The Ziptron technology witnessed in the Nexon EV will be at work in this variant, as well.

Tata Motors has lined up an impressive array of vehicles for unveiling the at the Auto Expo. Accompanying the production-spec version of the Tata H2X will be the 7-seater Tata Gravitas SUV, the BS6-compliant Tata Harrier, and many other commercial and passenger vehicles.
