The Tata HBX will be based on the brand's ALFA platform, similar to the Altroz hatchback. The HBX showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 is said to be a concept, although it is a near-production ready version, with an expected launch sometime by end-2020.

The Tata HBX was first showcased at the previous Auto Expo in the form of the H2X concept. The mini-SUV from Tata Motors features an upright design, with the front fascia inspired from the Harrier.

In terms of powertrain options, we expect the Tata HBX to receive the same engine options as the Altroz. This includes the 1.2-litre petrol engine, along with the manual and automatic transmission units.

However, the AMT version of the HBX could be introduced separately at a later stage. Power and torque figures are also expected to remain pretty much unchanged from that of the Altroz premium hatchback.
