The codename ‘Goshaq' for the upcoming Tata sedan has been inspired from Goshawk, a bird from the raptor family. This is in-line with the company naming their passenger vehicles with bird names. The latest products to feature this unique nomenclature include the Harrier and the Altroz.

According to reports from Team-BHP, the new Tata Goshaq being a sub-4 metre model will be part of the brand's ALFA architecture. This new architecture debuted on the recently launched Altroz premium hatchback. This platform will also be seen next underpinning the HBX micro-SUV, which is expected to go on sale in India in the coming months.

In terms of design, the new Tata sedan could carry forward the latest design language, while also borrowing elements from the Hornbill, Sierra EV Concept and the Altroz as well.

Currently there is no official information regarding the sub-4 metre compact sedan from Tata Motors. There is also no confirmation whether the new model will be the next-generation Tigor or a completely new model altogether.

We however expect it to be an all-new model, which could replace the Tigor sedan. However, with the model still under early stages of development, expect it to be introduced only by around late-2021 or early-2022.

The new Tata compact sedan is expected to be offered with just a petrol engine. This could be the same 1.2-litre unit which currently powers the Altroz. This 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine produces 85bhp and 113Nm of torque. The new compact sedan could also receive the same power and torque outputs, although it will come with the option of both manual and automatic transmission units.
