Tata Blackbird to come with special features and likely to have 1.5L gasoline and 1.5L diesel engines in India

The Tata Blackbird is expected to launch in the next few years and is more likely to be powered by 1.5L gasoline and 1.5L diesel engines in India.

It is reported that Tata Motors is developing a new SUV targeting the domestic market. Currently, the company has Nexon as the best-selling SUV, and it is also the best-selling SUV in Korea so far this year. The Punch micro SUV was launched in Korea last year and is receiving good reviews from consumers.

Above the Nexon, which is less than 4 meters in length, and the Harrier, which is 4.6 meters in length, there is an obvious gap that the Tata can slide on in an all-new SUV. In the mid-size SUV segment, Hyundai Creta is competing fiercely in the Indian market with Kia Seltos, MG Aster, Volkswagen Tiger, Skoda Kushak, and Nissan Kicks.

Rumors regarding the 4.3m-long Tata SUV have been around for a long time, and this will certainly help the Tata compete directly with the aforementioned models. It can be based on the same X1 platform as Nexon, and can have a larger proportion, providing more interior space and a larger trunk space compared to Nexon’s 350 liters.

In order to differentiate it from Nexon, it is highly likely to have a new styling and more importantly a coupe-like roof line. Previously known internally as the Blackbird Project, the Nexon Coupe increases the overall length as the rear overhang lengthens. The wheel geometry can be modified, which increases the wheelbase length by 50 mm.

The exterior of the Tata Nexon Coupe/Blackbird can be redesigned with front fascia and rear. It is expected to share body panels with standard Nexon, including the A-pillar and front door. In terms of performance, a new 1.5-liter gasoline engine will be available, which will be an upgraded version of Nexon’s 1.2-liter Revotron motor.

It appears that Nexon’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine will be tuned to develop around 160 horsepower while creating higher output and torque. Transport selections include MT and AT.
