Production-ready Tata 45X to be unveiled at Geneva

Tata Motors is set to unveil the 45X premium hatchback in production-ready form at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March.

The 45X concept was first revealed at the 2018 Auto Expo. The car is designed along Tata's Impact Design 2.0 philosophy. Test mules of the 45X have already been spotted on Indian roads. The spy images suggest that the car could feature a slim grille with sweptback headlamps on either side and trapezoidal fog lamps placed under the main headlamp clusters. The rear features slim wraparound tail lamps that appear to be similar to those on the Harrier and a rear wiper and fog lamp. The car has a front quarter glass and the rear door handles are mounted on the C-pillars.

According to recent spy images, the interiors of the 45X look similar to the Harrier. It has a floating touchscreen infotainment system, 3-spoke multi-function, flat-bottom steering wheel and an instrument cluster with a large digital display.

Media report suggest that the 45X could be offered with the 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder naturally aspirated and turbocharged petrol engines from the Tiago and Nexon respectively. Both engines could be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. 

The Tata 45X is expected to compete with the Hyundai i20 and Maruti Baleno in the Indian market.
