The production-spec Tata 45X premium hatchback is set to make its world debut at the upcoming 2019 Geneva Motor show in March. Once showcased at the show, the hatchback will be introduced in the Indian market by August this year.
The Tata 45X hatchback will be the first premium hatchback offering from the Indian carmaker. The production-spec 45X will also be the second product in the lineup to use the 'Impact 2.0' design language; first being the Tata Harrier SUV.
The Tata 45X will come packed with features and equipment. Some of the features expected on the premium hatchback include LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED tail lights, large touchscreen infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering-mounted audio controls, push-button start/stop, semi-digital instrument cluster, multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking camera/sensors, seatbelt reminders and high-speed alert system; among others.
In terms of mechanicals, the production-spec 45X hatchback will carry forward the same engine from the Nexon SUV. This includes a 1.2-litre petrol engine producing 110bhp and 170Nm of torque and a 1.5-litre diesel unit churning out 110bhp and 250Nm of torque. Both engines will further be mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox. Tata Motors might also offer an AMT unit for the hatchback as well.
Tata Motors recently released a new teaser video of the 45X, ahead of its global debut. The teaser video showcased the 45X concept running around the streets of the city. Apart from this, Tata also announced that they are working on an all-electric version of the 45X hatchback.
The Tata 45X EV concept will be showcased along with the premium hatchback at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Apart from this, Tata will also bring in four other models to showcase at the event.
