Tata's Upcoming Premium Hatchback Spotted Testing In India

The X451, which is positioned above the Tiago will be Tata Motors' first premium hatch and has its sights on the Hyundai i20 and Suzuki Baleno, the segment leaders today.

Based on a new AMP platform which is similar to VW's MQB base, 15 individual modules can be put together to form a complete vehicle.

The spy shots that have found their way online showcase what is believed to be the X451 hidden under heavy camouflage and give some insights on what we can expect from the model. A prototype of this new hatchback (codenamed: X451) has been spotted on the road, giving us the first glimpse of the upcoming model. In that sense, the silhouette of the test mule indicates that the auto will also share parts with the Tiago but will be longer and sleeker than the popular compact hatch. Sideways, the premium Tata hatchback is longer than the Tiago, however, according to the source of this news, actual length will stay under the 4-metre mark. At the rear, it has a steeply raked windshield with a rear wiper and integrated spoiler. Also, visible is the placement of the rear door handle in the C-pillar, a design trend followed by the Mahindra KUV100 NXT and the upcoming Maruti Swift.

The petrol variants of this premium Tata hatchback are expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol motor.

Going by how things are inside the new Nexon, expect the premium Tata hatchback to feature a modern cabin layout and offer a long list of features. The engines, however, will be offered in a higher state of tune and there is a change that Tata might consider offering the Nexon's turbocharged units with the new premium hatchback.

Specifications and other technical details of the vehicle will still take some time to be revealed, but, in terms of powertrain options, we expect the new premium hatchback to come with the same petrol and diesel engines that do duty on the Tiago. But, unlike the Tiago, the diesel engine is rumoured to use a variable-geometry turbocharger (VGT). For a Tata, expect space utilisation to be brilliant and we expect the rear seat to be the most comfortable among the competition whenever the actual auto launches.
