The LED DRLs of the Tata Hornbill can be seen along with the triple-arrow pattern which is in the front bumper which looks same as the H5X Concept. The micro-SUV seems to have neat, squared-off edges up front which is a boxier, more upright stance. The Hornbill is designed by the Impact Design 2.0 language of the Tata and has Hornbill will have a better and more upright stance than the Tata Nexon, and it will also have a low-round ratio to give it a different SUV look. It can be expected that the small SUV will get large wheels, strong wheel arches, a ‘floating’ roof and ‘Humanity Line’ grille which is the signature of the Tata.
The codename of the Hornbill is the X445 and will be based on the ALFA modular platform of the company which even Tata Altroz will share. As per the sources, the Hornbill “will have a wheelbase that is around 50mm shorter.” the ALFA modular platform is designed for the 1.2-litre, three-cylinder Revotron petrol and also the 1.05-litre, three-cylinder, Revotorq diesel powertrains of Tata. But it is expected that during the launch, the SUV will be offered in the 1.2-petrol powertrain.
Hornbill will be Tata's claimant in Tata's Micro-SUV segment and will be positioned below the Nexon in the line-up of the company. The Tata Hornbill displayed in 2019 Geneva motor show will indicate the production model which will target the Mahindra KUV100 which is the production variant of the Maruti Future S concept and all-new micro-SUV of the Hyundai which will most probably showcase in 2023.
Tata Motors is speculated to disclose the production variant of the Tata Hornbill micro-SUV at the Auto Expo which will be held in Delhi in February next year and will go on sale later in 2020.
