Tata’s all-new premium hatchback, the Project X451, has been spotted testing. Tata’s transformation from an old-school rickety carmaker to a modern marquee has entered the next phase.
The all-new hatchback will be the first car to be built on the Advanced Modular Platform that has been developed by Tata Motors. Looking at the images that we have at our disposal, it is evident that the X451 will be styled quite similar to the Tiago, but we hope it gets some brawn from the Hexa as well.
It might get the 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron Petrol engine along with the 1.5-litre diesel engine that debuted with the Nexon earlier this year. The X451 will compete with the likes of the Maruti Baleno and the Hyundai i20.
There is no information regarding the technical specifications of the Tata X451. But we can expect that the premium hatchback will get the new 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. Both the engines are also deployed in the recently launched Nexon.
Tata Motors is likely to load the new hatchback with premium features such as touchscreen infotainment system, projector headlights, LED daytime running lights and automatic climate control. The company is also expected to introduce a sedan based on the X451 to rival the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Ciaz.
