Inside, the new 45X premium hatchback from Tata Motors is expected to come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. other features also include semi-digital instrument cluster, manual day/night IRVM, push-button start and probably even a flat-bottom steering wheel.
In terms of mechanicals, the upcoming Tata 45X hatchback is expected to come with the same engine options as the Nexon SUV. This includes 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine. The petrol unit produces 110bhp and 170Nm of torque while the diesel engine churns out 110bhp and 260Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, with the optional AMT transmission as optional.
