The H5X will be the first to sport the company’s new Impact Design 2.0 design language. Spy shots have turned up with the Tata H5X undergoing high-altitude testing.
The H5X is, after all, based on the Land Rover Discovery Sport’s platform (codenamed L550), so it is most likely going to be an able off-road performer. To save on costs, some of the Discovery’s expensive aluminium parts will be replaced by more affordable steel bits.
The car will most probably be powered by a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre MultiJet II engine and could be mated to a ZF-sourced nine-speed automatic transmission that will send power to all four wheels via Tata’s indigenously developed 4x4 system. Like some of its other cars, this SUV will also feature multiple drive modes. The Tata H5X is likely to debut in India in the first half of 2019.
