Tata 45X hatchback spotted testing in production avatar looks like the international and popular Toyota Yaris Hatchback to a certain extent
Tata has strapped it up its automotive sector and recently we have seen many new products that have been launched. In every segment from hatchbacks to SUV’s they are constantly evolving. Now Tata is all set and is in the final stages of launching the Harrier, but that’s not all of it, the Indian automotive manufacturer has also something in store for us.
The upcoming hatchback from Tata which is codenamed 45X has been recently spotted at a petrol pump in Coimbatore. According to the spy shots it can be estimated that this a production-spec model of the 45X.
Aesthetically, it looks like the 45X in comparison with the Tiago is slightly larger, wherein the side profile, front end and the window line is similar. At the front, the grille is slim and besides it is a pair of sweptback headlamp units. Just below the headlamps cluster, a wide air dam and fog lamps have been paced. Moving towards the rear, the 45X is spotted with a rear wiper, wrap around tail lamp units and the license plate is mounted at the lower end of the rear bumper. The test mule of the 45X is been spotted running on four-spoke alloy wheels which are finished in silver.
As of now, there are no clarifications on the mechanical part for this upcoming hatchback. But there are some rumours that suggest that under the hood of the 45X will be a 1.2 litre, three-cylinder petrol unit which powers the Nexon but this engine will be re-tuned for the hatchback. Tata Motors may also get a 1.05-litre diesel unit for the hatchback.
Once launched the 45X will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Volkswagen Polo and other premium hatchbacks in the Indian market.
