Tata X451 premium hatchback spotted 

Based on Tata Motors’ new Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), the X451 will slot in above the Tiago in the carmaker’s line-up. Tata’s new design language, called Impact Design 2.0, will feature on the model, along with uprated versions of the Tiago’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1.05-litre diesel motor. The Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine may also feature at a later date. Expect a launch date for the model sometime in 2019. It will be rolled out from the company’s Sanand factory in Gujarat, which is gearing up to be the production hub for all cars built on the AMP architecture.

A test mule of the new X451 hatchback was spied a few months ago that revealed a silhouette not too dissimilar to the Tiago but on closer examination, the longer wheelbase and length was noticed. This new hatchback will be as much as 200mm longer than the Tiago (Length: 3,746mm) but will still sit under the crucial four-meter mark in order to slot itself in the lower tax slab. Another aspect that was noticed from the spy shot was the raked windshield and tapering roofline, along with a C-pillar-mounted rear door handle, which will soon be seen on the new Maruti Swift as well.

Mahindra has made it a habit to catch the media and general public by surprise with its concept cars at the Auto Expo. At the 2014 event, it was the Halo electric sportscar, and 2016 saw the unveiling of the bold XUV Aero concept which left all in attendance shocked. This time around, Mahindra has another surprise up its sleeve: a sub-four metre convertible SUV. Yes, you read that right. Other manufacturers have done it in the past (think Nissan Murano and the Range Rover Evoque convertible), but this is the first time an Indian carmaker will be having a crack at building one.

The new drop-top SUV will be under four metres in length and will be built on the TUV300’s underpinnings, but will look nothing like it. Little else is known about it for now but building a convertible out of an SUV – that too on a ladder-frame chassis – is no easy feat. It will be interesting to see how the manufacturer manages to define the proportions of this exciting new concept.

As for propulsion, Mahindra is likely to equip the convertible with an existing engine’s derivative. We hear that the carmaker has been preparing an upgraded and more powerful version of the 1.5-litre, three-cylinder, mHawk100 diesel engine that, in its current form, puts out 101hp and 240Nm of torque. That could very well be the engine of choice for this concept. Mahindra will gauge feedback and take a decision on whether it wants to put this concept into production or not.
