Upcoming Tata hatchback detailed ahead of Auto Expo 2018

Tata Motors is all set to have a significant presence at the 2018 Auto Expo, and among its significant announcements, is a refresh of its Impact design language, termed as Impact 2.0. The new design language will be shown off on the company's upcoming premium hatchback, called Tata X451 for the time being. The new hatchback will be positioned above the Tata Tiago, and will be Tata's first premium hatchback in recent times.

The Tata X451 will likely share a few elements with the compact crossover, the Tata Nexon. As seen in the teasers shared by Tata Motors, these similarities may include a ceramic band that runs along the hatchback's window line, the updated ConnectNext infotainment system and similar interior qualities. The Tata X451 will be the first car to be built on the company's Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), which is the platform that all of the company's future cars will be based on. In terms of powertrain, the company's 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel engines are expected to power the hatchback.

In an interview with us, Tata Motors' design chief Pratap Bose spoke about how pivotal car design has been in Tata's ongoing efforts to remodel its overall market opinion. With the upcoming Tata X451 premium hatchback, Tata Motors is expected to build on this very factor, of which we will get a first glance at Auto Expo 2018. Tata Motors is also expected to premiere the Tata Tigor Sport at the upcoming automobile extravaganza, alongside another five-seater SUV, dubbed the Tata H5.
