Tata has introduced the 7-inch digital-analogue speedometer with the Harrier, the slightly different 7-inch coloured display will also be seen in the 45X
Tata Motors has taken leap step when it comes to design and features. Starting right from the Tiago, Tata has come a long way now. Their newest SUV – Tata Harrier would be launched in the Indian market on 23rd January and will feature the first-ever 7-inch coloured screen in the speedometer console.
All the upcoming premium Tata cars will get a similar set-up and we can confirm that the same type of instrument console would be seen on the upcoming Tata 45X too. Tata 45X would the brand’s first-ever offering in the premium hatchback segment in the market and would rival against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz and Hyundai Elite i20.
Tata is expected to launch the all-new 45X later this year. Tata has not revealed the official name of the car but it is expected to be named as the Aquila. The 45X would feature a floating-type infotainment screen, which is similar to the Tata Nexon and the Tata Harrier.
The exclusive picture speedometer console of the Tata 45X revealed by us shows that the upcoming premium hatchback would offer the segment-first semi-digital instrument console, which resembles the speedometer console of the Tata Harrier. In the Harrier, the speedometer console is rounded while the 45X gets a more squarish console.
The console also gets the predominantly blue colour in the 45X. Tata is expected to offer the same 7-inch digital coloured screen in the 45X similar to the size offered on the Harrier. Just like the Harrier, the coloured console would offer a wide range of information including navigation information, infotainment information among others.
The console cannot be customised at the moment but we can expect Tata to release updates that will enable the owners to customise the console screen to show various information. The Tata 45X will become the first vehicle to be launched on the Advanced Modular Platform (AMP).
It will be powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine is expected to be a 1.2-litre turbocharged unit while the diesel variants could be powered by the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine. Both the engine options are also available with the Tata Nexon.
