The all-new HBX will be based on the H2X concept presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It will be the second model to be built on the brand’s ALFA platform and will use the Impact Design 2.0 philosophy. It will be positioned under the Nexon subcompact SUV in Tata’s product line for the Indian market. The automaker has already confirmed that the production version of the HBX will retain around 90% of its styling cues from the concept.
Based on previous spy footage, we can say that the Tata HBX will borrow some of the clues from its older siblings – the Nexon and the Safari. It will sport a split-style headlight with LED daytime running lights and the brand’s signature new three-arrow mesh grille. It should get electrically adjustable ORVMs with built-in side indicators, circular fog lights, alloy rims, roof rails, integrated roof spoiler, sloped rear windshield, and more. Inside, the Tata HBX is likely to have an all-black cabin with a flat-bottomed steering wheel with mounted controls, a large instrument cluster with a MID unit, on-off button, and a similar small display. to that of Nexon.
