Tata Motors has confirmed that the production version of the Tata H2X concept will be launched in India after the introduction of Altroz and Buzzard. Internally codenamed as the Tata Hornbill, the production-spec H2X sub-compact SUV is expected to be launched towards the end of 2020. That said, we might get a glimpse of the SUV at the 2020 Auto Expo in February.
The company will first launch the Tata Altroz premium hatchback around September 2019. It will be followed by the launch of the production-spec Tata H7X, which debuted as the Buzzard at Geneva Motor Show 2019. The H7X is the seven-seat version of the Tata Harrier and is expected to be launched in early 2020.
Coming back to the Tata H2X, the sub-compact SUV will be the second car to be based on the modular ALFA platform after the Tata Altroz. The H2X concept measures 3,840mm in length, 1,822mm in width and 1,635mm in height, while it has a wheelbase of 2,450mm. The production version is expected to have dimensions that are more or less similar to the concept.
Under the hood, the Tata H2X is likely to be offered with a 1.2-liter petrol engine from the Tata Altroz. Chances of it getting a diesel powertrain are slim. The production-spec Tata H2X will compete against the likes of Mahindra KUV100 and the Maruti Suzuki Ignis. The H2X could be priced in the bracket of Rs 5-8 lakhs (ex-showroom).
