The Tata HBX is the new compact SUV that is going to be launched in the Indian market soon.

It has the same visual features like its elder sibling the Tata Harrier. Here are the five key features of the 2020 Tata HBX. It will be entry-level SUV by Tata

2020 Tata HBX engine

The Tata HBX is likely to be powered by the 86hp, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that’s currently under the hood of the Tiago, the Tigor and the Altroz. The car will be paired with a 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox. There will be no diesel engine on offer due to Tata’s decision to axe all small-capacity diesel engines from its line-up.

Design

At the front, the HBX features a split-headlamp setup that is seen on the Tata Harrier with the main cluster lower down on the bumper, along with the unique front grille. The car has an upright stance thanks to the prominent wheel arches along with skid plates around the car. At the rear, the tail lamps have the new signature design of Tata that extends towards the side of the car. The HBX also gets faux front and rear skid plates to complete the SUV look

Tata HBX platform

The 2020 Tata HBX will be the second car to get Tata’s new proven ALFA platform that is seen on the recently launched Tata Altroz. The platform is known to be very flexible and will be seen on many cars in the future in different body styles. The car is also designed with the possibility of an electric variant to be offered in the future.In terms of dimensions, the car measures 3,840mm in length, 1,822mm in width and 1,635mm in height, and has a 2,450mm-long wheelbase.

HBX interiors

On the inside, it is surprisingly spacious considering its small dimensions. The Instrument cluster is both digitals as well as analogue. The steering wheel gets hand stitching as well as modern design.

It gets a 6-inch touchscreen infotainment system that has Apple Carplay as well as Android Auto. The horizontally flat dashboard gives the car an overall rugged look.

Price and launch

The 2020 Tata HBX is expected to go on sale later this year. The pricing is likely to range from 5 lakh to 8 lakh (ex-showroom) and therefore will compete with the likes of the Suzuki Ignis and the KUV100 NXT. Other companies are also expected to bring in micro SUVs around this price-point.
