Tata to unveil products based on Impact Design 2.0 at Auto Expo, Auto News, ET Auto

NEW DELHI: Tata Motors has already started teasing the new products which are going to be unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018, starting February 7. Now, the company has also revealed some highlights of the second phase of its passenger vehicle design philosophy, ‘Impact Design 2.0,’ which will be used in the new products.

Impact Design 2.0 builds on the successful Impact Design philosophy, under which the Tiago, Hexa, Tigor and the Nexon were created and launched.

According to the reports, Tata Motors is going to unveil a premium hatchback (codename X451) and a new SUV (codename H5) at the upcoming auto show along with the Tigor Sport. These will be the first models to be designed on Impact Design 2.0 which the company says is a sharper, more contemporary expression of the now recognisable Tata Motors’ Design language.

Tata claims that the exteriors of the upcoming products will be defined by segment leading wheel sizes and strong proportions, which will provide them with a stance like no other as well as a great road presence. The details are said to reflect India-Global Design inspiration and the body colours will be striking too.

The interior design, as per Tata Motors, will be clean, clutter free, and will be a blend of a great balance of design flourish and practicality. With every function within arms’ reach, the HMI screens is also said to be the segment-leading.

Following are the three exterior and interior highlights of the upcoming Impact Design 2.0 philosophy by Tata motors:
