The Tata H2X micro SUV is 11mm wider and 28mm taller than the Nexon.
Tata Motors has unveiled the H2X micro SUV concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The production-ready model will make debut at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo, while launch is expected in the second half of 2020. The new model will sit below the Nexon in the Tata’s SUV line-up and will take on the likes of Mahindra KUV100, Maruti Ignis and the upcoming Maruti Future S concept based micro SUV.
While the Nexon compact SUV comes with a more coupe-SUV profile, the Tata H2X has more imposing SUV’s stance. What’s interesting is that the new micro SUV concept is wider and taller than the Nexon compact SUV. In terms of proportions, the H2X is 3,840mm in length, 1,822mm in width, 1,635mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,450mm. On the other hand, the Nexon is 3,990mm, 1,811mm and 1,607mm in length, width and height respectively.
The H2X is 11mm wider and 28mm taller than the Nexon. This clearly suggests that Tata has given more importance to cabin comfort. This micro SUV is expected to offer class-leading space for both front and rear occupants. The Tata H2X is built on the new ALFA modular platform that also underpins the Altroz premium hatchback.
The new ALFA platform is flexible enough to accommodate different body-styles and powertrains including petrol, diesel, electric and hybrids. Tata could also opt for the electric version of the H2X micro SUV in future. This will be the brand’s second model to be based on the new platform.

The Tata H2X is expected to arrive in petrol version only. It is likely to be powered by a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine that powers the Altroz. This engine is capable of producing 100bhp of power and 172Nm of torque. Both manual and automatic versions are likely to be on offer.
