Production-spec Tata H5X test mule spotted testing


New spy images of the Tata H5X have surfaced online. Unlike previous test mules that had Discover Sport body shells, the latest test vehicles appear to be production-ready.

The Tata H5X concept debuted the Impact Design 2.0 design language at the 2018 Auto Expo. The spy images suggest that the production-spec H5X will retain the triangular headlamps and grille. The SUV has a gently sloping roofline with an integrated spoiler and large wheel arches lined with black plastic cladding. The test vehicle is running on black 5-spoke alloy wheels.

The upcoming Tata H5X will be based on a new Omega platform and is expected to be unveiled in November 2018. The engine options might include a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine with 140 BHP of peak output paired to a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic transmission. The H5X will feature all-wheel drive and independent suspension all around. Tata Motors is also rumoured to be working on a 7-seat version of the H5X.
