The Tata H5X SUV concept made its much-awaited debut at Auto Expo 2018. It was being teased over the last few weeks. The concept previews the SUV’s future model that is expected to launch before April 2019. The H5X concept showcases Tata’s new OMEGA architecture that is a derivative of the platform that underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
Exterior and Interior
The most striking feature of this SUV is its virtually floating roof and slightly sloping, coupe-like silhouette. The H5X gets an upright fascia and packs a stronger bumper with rugged-looking skid plates. The grille design is similar to that of the other cars of Tata, however, it is made of the company’s latest Impact Design 2.0. This SUV will be Tata’s first car to be based on the updated design language. It also gets 22-inch wheels and huge wheel arches which gives it a very muscular stance. The grille has narrow, upward sweeping daytime running LEDs. Further, the car’s bumper gives a chunky look.
Though the interior of the H5X has not been announced by the company, Tata has confirmed that the production spec model will be a five-seater SUV. For now, there is no mention of a seven-seat version of the same.
The mechanicals of the SUV have also not been revealed but it is believed to be powered by Fiat’s renowned 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel engine. This engine has also been used in the Jeep Compass. It will come mated to a 6-speed manual.
