Tata HBX confirmed to be launched in 2021
Tata Motors will launch its HBX SUV in India later this year, the company has confirmed. It will likely be called 'Hornbill.' The vehicle will borrow design and styling cues from the Harrier SUV, including a split headlamp setup, tri-arrow design on the front grille, and a 'floating' roof design. The HBX is also said to offer an all-black cabin. Here's our roundup.
Tata HBX will sport a muscular bonnet, a tri-arrow design on the front grille, chunky skid plates, a roof-mounted spoiler, and a rear window wiper. For lighting, it will house sleek headlamps and wrap-around LED taillamps. On the sides, the SUV will be flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, body-colored ORVMs, bulky wheel arches, and thick door cladding.
The Tata HBX will draw power from a 1.2-liter petrol mill that makes 86hp of maximum power. Transmission choices will likely include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed automatic gearbox.
The Tata HBX will have a blacked-out cabin, a flat-bottom steering wheel with controls mounted on it, an engine start/stop button, square-shaped AC vents, and pillar-mounted tweeters. It will also pack a large touchscreen infotainment system with support for the latest connectivity features. To ensure the safety of passengers, the four-wheeler will offer multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and parking sensors.
The official pricing and availability details of the Tata HBX will be announced at the time of launch, which will happen later this year. However, looking at the specifications and features, the vehicle will cost around Rs. 5 lakh (ex-showroom).
