- The Tata HBX will be a strong contender in its segment thanks to its funky exterior looks and a long list of features that it promises.
Tata has been developing the HBX micro-SUV from quite sometime now. The vehicle was also showcased as a near-production concept at the Auto Expo this year. Tata plans to launch it in the second half of 2020 and it will be a threat to the likes of the Maruti Ignis and the Mahindra KUV100.
The Tata HBX will be a strong contender in its segment thanks to its funky exterior looks and a long list of features that it promises.
Here are its top 5 segment leading features which are currently not found in any of its competition offerings.
Dash-top touchscreen infotainment system:
As per the concept images, the Tata HBX will most likely receive a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system which will be mounted over the top of the dashboard. This will allow for an easy view, hence less distraction. Also, such set-up isn't available in any of its competitors yet.
Semi-digital instrument cluster:
The Tata HBX will benefit from a semi-digital instrument cluster. Though not confirmed, but it might share the same unit as seen on the Altroz premium hatchback. If that's the case, it will be a 7.0-inch colour display featuring a virtual tachometer along with a driver information screen and an analogue speedometer.
The concept displayed at the Auto Expo 2020 hinted that the Tata HBX will in-fact receive split headlamp setup which is quite a premium feature for a vehicle of its size. 'Split headlamps' is a design trend in the SUV segment and after the Harrier and the Gravitas, the HBX will be Tata's next product to feature split headlamps.
The Tata HBX will feature Cruise Control unlike any of its segment rivals. This will certainly raise the overall equipment level standard of the vehicle.
Harman Sound System:
Besides everything above, the Tata HBX will also boast the best-in-class audio system from Harman. The system could use four speakers and four/two tweeters.
