Tata Motors will unveil the H7X concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show (5-17 March). Using details from spy shots, IAB’s artist Shoeb Kalania has already envisioned its production version.
The Tata H7X will be essentially a stretched, more family oriented version of the Tata Harrier. With the addition of two rear seats, the exterior design will take a step back with respect to emotion. Due to the conventional roofline and the back glass being a little upright, the 7-seat C-SUV won’t have the same sporty appeal. It will have a 62 mm longer body, albeit with the same wheelbase (2,741 mm).
The Tata H7X will use a more powerful engine than the Tata Harrier. While the latter employs the 140 PS/350 Nm version of the FCA-made 2.0-litre MultiJet II diesel engine, the former will likely sport the 170 PS/350 Nm version. IAB understands that Tata Motors is likely to name the more powerful version ‘Kryotec170’.
The Kryotec170 engine will route power to the wheels via a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. Tata Motors plans to offer the latter, which is sourced from Hyundai, in the Harrier as well.
The Tata H7X will go on sale in the fourth quarter of the year, during the festive season. Prices should start from around INR 15 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
