WOW! The car looks great. I just hope they do not mess-up at the launch like typical TAMO fashion. No Auto, limited engine options, messed up QC, price!

This is a segment which has limited to no competition and can give the competition a serious headache!

Way to go Pratap bose, glad to have invested in TAMO stocks. If only now JLR's fortunes can turn-around with their new cars (especially in China!)

Does Tata have plans to experiment on a low-cost 4x4 with the HBX? With the compass and inclinometer and all? This could make an affordable 4x4 and a serious off-roader.
All they need is the drive train.

This is definitely the BEST and MATURE DESIGN from Tata so far. The HBX looks almost production ready. The omissions from this to the actual launch would probably just be in the Skid Plate Design and Road Tyres.

The HBX looks to be a segment above the Ignis ad KUV100 and would be slotted in between the Altroz and the Nexon in terms of pricing.

An absolute head-turner! I'm sure this will stir up under-4 SUV market. I love that flat hood, straight belt-line and flat hood. Please give us a TC AT at top variant and not an AMT, Tata.

I think they themselves got the information from Tata representative and it is also convincing given Tata's previous track record with the Altroz.

That said I'd be the happiest if this is not the truth as the it looks stunning and seems like a very promising car especially with Tata's obsession with building safe cars. It's an ideal city car IMO and this should head to the showrooms at the earliest.

An AMT, you must get. Too expensive, TC AT is --- Baby Yoda!

That is the size that the Sumo Victa and Scorpio's had. Are you not finding these ?

Actually I am not able to. I can find 215/75 R15 and 205/65 R15 but not 205/75 R15. Can you please share a link?

Tata HBX almost production-ready. Likely to be launched in late 2020.

Quote:
The production-spec HBX is likely to be powered by the 86hp, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that’s currently under the hood of the Tiago, the Tigor and the Altroz. The unit is expected to be paired with a 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox.

A test mule of the upcoming Tata Hornbill, accompanied by a test mule of the upcoming Gravitas, was spotted from up close on the streets of Pune earlier today by our friendly neighbourhood Autospy.

Wow, That looks ugly to me. Reminds me of the KUV 100 from the rear. The Bonnet is the only area which looks good.

Video itself starts by saying heavily camouflaged and you came to the conclusion already that the rear looks ugly ? I couldn't make out anything much at all and for all we know, the camouflage might be hiding cuts and creases. Let's wait for the full reveal before starting to bash at least.
