The Creta rival is the Blackbird.
Though Tata haven't even finalised on which platform to make it, let alone testing or even a concept.

The Tata HBX is going against the Kuv100, Ignis segment, though the Nissan Magnite is kinda blurring the segment differences.

Though highly unlikely, Tata could very well put the Altroz tune 1.5l diesel in the HBX.
Yeah, yeah...BS6..higher costs...but there is a serious dearth of diesels below the 8 lakh mark.

Oh then I am wrong. I see really really slim chances of the HBX getting a diesel option. It's not feasible I think. Meanwhile the creta rival will get a diesel 100%.

Hornbill will sit in the Nissan Magnite price range and the supposed to come Creta rival is the TATA Blackbird which will be slotted between the NEXON and HARRIER.

Tata has registered new names. Could one of them be for hornbill? Timero suits more for a commercial vehicle IMO.

So, if anyone reading this from Tata, please launch it at least in 1H 2021. Enough procrastination!
I happened to speak to someone working near the assembly line in the plant. Per him, the assembly line is almost set up however its the supplier issues that keep this away from the much awaited launch. Expected to be launched around May 2021.

Tata HBX Spy Shots Reveal different alloy pattern :

Quote:
New wheels sport a four-split-spoke dual-tone design, likely 16-inch units.

It continues to sport heavy camouflage, yet looks similar to the concept.

Features expected include a floating touchscreen, climate control, and keyless entry with push-button start/stop.

Likely to be powered by the Tiago’s 86PS/113Nm 1.2-litre petrol engine.

Call me a negative Nancy, but at this point, I can bet that they are gonna screw up the engine department again by not offering the turbo at launch, if at all

If the Tata guys are following this thread, Kindly ensure you give us proper automatics. CVTs or Torque Converters. Petrol as well as diesel. The reason I didn't go for the Nexon was the AMT.

My sources also indicate that the production batches are being planned to commence from April 20 & the launch delay is due to supplier constraints.

Hornbill is also expected to launch its electric avatar. Would be interesting if it could surprise us with a fun to drive affordable city EV. Hope it won't be as boring as EKUV100.

I would be happy to replace my Nano for the Hornbill EV, it would be a very practical car for city use.

This looks production ready, excepting for the tiny rubber.
What could be the launch timeline?
