Render – Sub-4m Tata Falcon sedan
Posted on: Jan 16, 2014 - 9:19pm IST
To battle its rapidly falling sales and diminishing market share, Tata Motors will bring out two new models in 2014. Codenamed Falcon as of now, the series is a sub-4meter compact sedan and a hatchback.
While the hatchback will be a complete refresh of the current Indica Vista, called the Falcon 4 for now, (shots of the test mule) Cartoq reveals how the second model, the sub-4meter compact sedan, codenamed the Falcon 5, could look.
To be launched later this year, the Falcon 5 will be positioned between the Indigo CS and the Tata Manza. Tata will also feature a new range of engines in these two vehicles, and it is set to unveil them on 20th January in Mumbai.
Going by the spyshots so far, the Falcon 4 will get redesigned headlights, new bumper with triangular airdams, and a new grille inspired by the Manza Hybrid concept. The rear is also set to change and so is the interior, with what looks like a steering wheel inspired by the Hyundai i20.
We expect both models to be showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in February set to take place in Noida.
