Tata 45X premium hatchback interior details revealed
A new set of spy pictures has revealed in considerable detail what the interiors of the upcoming Tata 45X premium hatchback might look like. The interior gets the same design theme as on the Nexon and Harrier, using a variety of colour scheme and textures, as well as sweeping lines which accentuate the width of the cabin.
Most noticeable is the semi-digital instrument cluster. This unit seems like a straight lift from the Harrier and comes with a physical speedometer and a digital display for the tachometer and trip computer. The floating infotainment screen and its controls mimic those of the Nexon while the asymmetric climate control buttons are also Harrier influenced. Expect an eight-speaker audio system as on Nexon and class-leading safety equipment as well. The steering wheel seems to be the newer unit from the Harrier and the instrument binnacle too is of a similar shape as that of the Harrier.
Other than this, the premium hatchback seems to carry forward a lot of the styling cues from the concept car, although with the sharp lines toned down to a large extent. The design is still edgier than what we have seen so far from Tata Motors. The large headlamps which protrude and sit flush with the grille, heavily raked C pillar and indented tailgate are some notable design cues.
The Tata 45X is based on the Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), now named Alpha and features the brand's Impact 2.0 design philosophy. The 45X-based premium hatchback will compete with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz, and the Hyundai i20.
It is likely that the 45X will carry the same powertrain options as the Tata Nexon. That means the petrol variant will come powered by a 1.2 litre turbocharged unit producing 110PS and 170Nm. The diesel will be a 1.5 litre motor with an output of 110PS and 260Nm. This should put it right up there as the most powerful hatchback in its segment.
