Tata Motors is said to unveil a hatchback and a sub-four metre saloon at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, says report on Autocar (India).
However, Tata Motors is going offensive with its product line up in the current scenario, and the aforementioned hatchback and sub-four metre sedan of Tata Motors is going to be based on X1 platform of present-gen Vista and Manza.
Named as ‘Project Falcon’, the upcoming vehicles of Tata is said to have no resemblance with the present-gen line-up. Hence, we now expect, Tata may have understood what the drawbacks lies with its current line-up. Though we guess, technical issues may not been looked so gravely even in the Falcons, but thanks to the designers at the backend who at least thought of giving the altogether different looks on Falcons, than those boring ones which the “T” badge vehicles of Indian shores is wearing since years.
However, the Falcon duos are kept under tight security as we find no spy-images of the same in past so many days. And it is also be unknown that how the Tata Motors is going to use the Falcon, we mean product positioning and pricing, in the market.
Specifically, ‘Falcon 4’ is the codename for hatchback, where the sub-four metre sedan is termed as ‘Falcon 5’.
‘Falcon 4’ is said to be designed at Tata’s European design studio. And is learnt to replace the Vista when it will be launched. Technical specification of the hatchback is said to be drawn in both the fuel trims. 1.2-litre turbo-petrol derived from the current Xeta engine and the everyone’s favorite 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet diesel will be doing their fruitfully in under the hood.
Coming to Falcon 5, the sub-four metre sedan, it is said to pose as the replacement of Manza, but sources said, the carmaker will plant it a notch above than the eCS. The above mentioned both the engines, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol of Xeta and 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet diesel of 89bhp, too will find their way in its bay. But report on the internet said, petrol is expected to be rewarded no lesser than the “100bhp”, which we hope will push the competition further in an extreme form.
As mentioned in report, the Falcon 5 will be launched a couple of months before the Falcon 4, in order to gain the festive delight of 2014. But hopefully, both the vehicles will be unveiled together at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo in February by next year.
