The engine will be mated to a ZF-sourced 9-speed automatic gearbox. The Jeep Compass also utilises the same engine.
The Tata H5X will be the flagship SUV from the Indian automaker and will be loaded with features. The H5X is expected to be offered with an optional four-wheel-drive and multiple driving modes. The interior of the H5X is expected to be equipped with premium features.
