Tata Motors is readying a mini SUV-crossover in the form of the HBX which was spotted getting tested on the public roads recently. The car is based on the HBX concept which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. While it was previously slated to be launched by 2020, the pandemic threw a wrench in its launch timeline which was delayed significantly. The car will likely be named Timero and will make its market debut by the second half of 2021.

As the spy image suggests, the prototype seems to be having a similar appearance and dimensions as the concept. The production-spec model will feature split headlamp design sporting a set of LED DRLs on top along with halogen headlights on either side of the front bumper. These lights give it a Harrier inspired front fascia. The front main grille will include a black, single slat unit featuring the company logo. It will feature A-pillar-mounted ORVMs, as well as steel wheels. The latter could be limited to the entry-level models. Its wheel arches have been added with plastic cladding to give the car a muscular appeal.
