To counter Jeep Compass, Tata to unveil Tata H5 SUV at Auto Expo 2018

To counter its rival Jeep Compass, Tata is all set to launch Tata H5 SUV in the market. Tata Motors will unveil its near-production SUV H5 at the 2018 Auto Expo.

In the run-up to the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo, car manufacturers are gearing up to unveil, launch and showcase their newest creations.

Based on Land Rover’s L550 platform, five- and seven-seat models are expected to get the same engine in 140hp and 170hp tunes. The SUVs are said to be completely different in terms of design and feel. The versions will also share FCA’s 2.0-litre, four-cylinder MultiJet II diesel engine, but in different states of tune – 140hp for the five-seater and 170hp for the seven-seater. Two-wheel and four-wheel-drive variants are expected to be on offer as well.

In terms of pricing, Tata is likely to peg the five-seat SUV at a price close to Rs 13 lakh, while the seven-seater is expected to have a base ex-showroom price tag of about Rs 15 lakh, thus targeting the Jeep Compass as well as the Hyundai Creta.

Besides the H5 SUV, Tata will also have its new Hyundai i20 and Maruti Baleno rival, codenamed X451, in near-production form at the 2018 Auto Expo.

Tata Motors will reveal its IMPACT Design 2.0 at the Auto Expo, and the new H5 is expected to the first to feature the new styling. The vehicle is likely to carry SUV attributes such as heavy body cladding, high ground clearance, and robust body architecture.

The Tata H5 will compete with the likes of Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 as well as the Hyundai Creta which is leading the SUV onslaught in India.
