Tata H5X SUV interior spied


Tata Motors unveiled its H5X concept at the recently concluded Auto Expo. Now, new spy images have surfaced online which reveal the SUV's interior. 

The exterior of the test mule has been wrapped in heavy camouflage and the images don't reveal any details of the Impact 2.0 design language. Unlike the concept that featured 22-inch wheels, the production version has 19-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels. 

On the inside, the H5X test car has fabric seats with adjustable headrests and thick side bolsters. The dashboard features a layered design. The centre console houses an upright touchscreen with a wide aspect ratio. Just below the infotainment screen are two air-conditioning vents, while the climate control module is placed lower down. All the switches have a glossy finish.

This particular test mule is equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The gear lever looks short and stubby and appears to have a reverse lock. Shiny trim surrounds the gear lever. Similar trim can be found on the centre console as well. There are cup holders in between the front seats and a hand rest with storage. The door pads have gloss black trim and a set of buttons, which likely control the memory function for the driver's seat. The front dome light module is finished in gloss black and might also have a sunglass holder. 

Moving to the rear, the H5X has large rear windows and a rear seat bench with three headrests and a foldable centre armrest. This particular test mule hasn't got rear air-conditioning vents and also lacks a sunroof.

Tata Motors hasn't announced the technical specifications of the H5X. It is based on the Land Rover Discovery Sport's L550 platform and is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, Multijet diesel engine from the Fiat family mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. A 7-seater version of the H5X is likely to use a more powerful version of the same engine paired with a ZF 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
