Pratap Bose, Head of Design of Tata Motors, reveals to Live Mint that the car will be unveiled in February next year (at the Auto Expo). Bose hints that with the Falcon models (a sub-4 meter version of the Manza is codenamed Falcon 5), customers will be able to see a design change in Tata Motors.

Speaking about the interiors of the Falcon 4, the head of design says that it will be “driver focused”, and that the feel of the gearshift and dashboard will be of better strength. Bose reveals that the gear shifter and thickness of the steering wheel has been tested on 50-60 people to get feedback.

He also reveals that the Falcon will have a new ‘HMI’ (Human Machine Interface). Though we’re not sure what this is, the design head says that it will “change the way people interact with cars”. Bose concludes the interview stating that the Falcon draws several features from higher segment models.
