The 88th edition of Geneva International Motor Show is all set to kick start on 8th March, 2018. Ahead of it, Tata Motors has released yet another teaser of its upcoming premium sedan. The latest teaser reveals the silhouette of the vehicle that seems to be inspired by the 45X premium hatchback concept that recently had its global debut at the Delhi Auto Expo 2018.
In India, the production version of the new Tata sedan will be stacked up against the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. Since the vehicle will make its world debut in concept form, the launch will take at least good two year.
New Tata Sedan Teasers
The new Tata sedan is likely to be based on the company’s new Advanced Modular Platform (AMP) that will also underpin the new premium hatchback. This architecture is said to be compatible to different wheelbases, lengths, widths and suspension setups. It will carry the new-generation IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy and could feature the more pronounced three-dimensional ‘Humanity Line’, tri-arrow fog lamps, strong fenders and class-leading wheel sizes.

Unlike the conventional mid-sized sedans, the new Tata sedan will have a different styling with coupe-like roofline. Likely to measure around 4.4 meters in length, the new sedan is expected to offer spacious and practical cabin with large boot space. It will also get latest in-car connectivity and convenience features such as a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, premium seat upholstery, etc. Read – Tata H7X SUV Under Development
Engine mechanism of the new Tata sedan is likely to be borrowed from the Nexon compact SUV. While the petrol model might get the 108bhp, 1.2-litre Revotron unit, oil burner could be a 108bhp, 1.5-litre Revotorq unit. Rumour also has it that the company might also introduce a sportier version of the sedan under the JTP nameplate.
