Tata H5X India launch in 2019 Tata H5X concept

Tata H5X was first showcased in India during Auto Expo 2018 and it was the center of attraction at the company's booth. Tata's flagship SUV has been on test in India for quite some time now and the latest spy image issued by Autocar India shows the SUV getting tested on high altitudes. The Tata H5X follows the company's Impact 2.0 design language and it is one of the key reasons behind its appealing design. The company's designers have confirmed that the production version will not be very far from the concept model which is a really good thing. The Tata H5X will source power from a 2.0-litre Multijet II engine that has been sourced from Fiat.

Transmission duties will be taken care of with the help of a ZF sourced nine-speed automatic gearbox. The company is expected to offer an all-wheel-drive system as standard. The Tata H5X is based on the same platform as the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The report also adds that the new Tata H5X will have a total kerb weight of 1650 kg and it will have the identical wheelbase of 2741mm as the latter.
