Much like Tata’s flagship SUV, the interior design is simple and minimalistic here too
Free-floating touchscreen looks like an 7-inch screen.
No beige here - black-grey colour theme appears identical to the Tigor.
New steering wheel design, too. It’s unlike what we’ve seen in the Tiago/Nexon.
Another week, another set of spy photos of Tata’s 45X-based hatchback. This time, it’s the interior that’s in the frame. The couple of pictures that have surfaced on the internet reveal enough to get excited about Tata’s upcoming premium hatchback.
In terms of design, we see similarities in the dashboard of the hatchback and the Harrier. The underlying idea appears to be in sync - restrained use of colours, clean lines and a focus on human-machine interface (HMI). We see a free-standing touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard. This is likely to be the 7-inch unit that we’ve recently seen in the Tiago XZ+/Tigor XZ+.

The spy images also give away the features list, of what’s possibly the top-spec variant of the 45X-based hatchback. We spot goodies such as push-button start, an adjustable steering column, automatic climate control and steering-mounted controls. Interestingly, instead of slide switches that the Harrier gets for volume/track toggle, the hatchback gets the usual buttons. The right side of the steering wheel isn’t in the frame, so we can’t say for sure if cruise control is on offer. At the moment, it’s only Honda that offers cruise control in the segment, in the updated Jazz.

Tata has its own way of standing out in the crowded segment, though. The hatchback will feature an LCD screen in the instrument cluster, much like the Harrier. This setup splits the instrument cluster into two halves - one digital and one analogue. The analogue half features the speedo and critical tell tale lights including seatbelt warning for both the driver and co-driver. On the other hand, the screen houses the tacho, and a readout for parameters such as distance to empty, trip details, and ambient temperature. With Android Auto running, music and navigation details are also mirrored here.

We like how Tata’s first properly premium hatch is shaping up. Expect a launch in September, with prices starting around Rs 5 lakh and topping out at Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom). The Baleno, Elite i20 and Jazz have some serious competition coming their way.
