Tata Motors is planning to launch at least six new products in the Indian market by August 2020. The company is gearing up for the launch of Altroz hatchback in the next couple of months, while the Buzzard SUV (7-seater Harrier) is all set to hit the Indian roads by the end of 2019. In addition, the home-grown automaker will also introduce the facelifted version of its existing products such as Tiago, Tigor and Nexon. Tata Motors, as reported by several publications, will also launch an automatic variant of the Harrier SUV by next year in the country.
Starting with Tata Altroz, it is based on the 45X Concept which had its world premiere at the 2018 Auto Expo in February. The hatchback will be based on the company's new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) architecture while adorning the Impact Design 2.0 design philosophy, which debuted with the Harrier in India. It will be introduced in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with manual and automatic transmission options. The Altroz will take on the likes of Hyundai i20, Maruti Baleno and Volkswagen Polo, while priced in a range of Rs 6-9 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom). The second product to be introduced after the Altroz will be the Buzzard SUV, which will be the 7-seater version of the Harrier with the same diesel powertrain. It was showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show with the additional third row of seating.
Tata Nexon Facelift Spied Testing Ahead of Launch, Reveals New Design
Tata Motors has also been testing the facelifted versions of Tiago, Tigor and Nexon in the country for some time now. It has been learnt that the company will launch these in a phased-wise manner starting in early 2020. However, all of these could be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo in February. All of these new models will feature BS-VI engines and advanced safety features. Tata has also announced to launch the electric variants of Tiago and Tigor for the general public in 2020. Last but not least, the Harrier is all set to get an automatic variant as all its rivals come with an auto transmission. Tata would offer the Harrier with a Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic gearbox, while a sunroof feature could also be added as standard, as it was missing in the current variants on sale.
