First and foremost, the upcoming Tata Curvv, which is set to receive a new name upon launch, will adopt the brand’s new front fascia theme. This includes a prominent LED connecting bar that stretches across the sleek grille, akin to the refreshed Nexon, Harrier, and Safari. Like Tata’s more recent SUV models, the Curvv will sport split headlamp assemblies with LED projectors. In its electric variant, the Curvv will feature a solid front grille, similar to the new Nexon EV.
Furthermore, the test mule showcased different alloy wheels compared to the concept presented at the Auto Expo 2023. It also hinted at the presence of flush-type door handles, a high-set window line, and a sloping rear roofline. The rear profile is anticipated to house slimmer LED taillights connected by a light bar. Inside, the Curvv is expected to boast a new 10.25-inch full-TFT instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a touch-sensitive panel for automatic air conditioning, six standard airbags, and a panoramic sunroof.
Same powertrain as Nexon
As for its powertrain, the Tata Curvv is expected to feature the Nexon’s 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and 1.5-liter diesel engine as standard options. However, there are rumors suggesting that the automaker might offer its new-generation 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine as an option for higher trim levels. In its all-electric form, the Curvv will be based on Tata’s Gen 2 platform and is likely to incorporate the Nexon Long Range’s battery and motor setup.
The production version of the Tata Curvv is projected to make its debut in the first half of 2024, competing with vehicles like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, Honda Elevate, MG Astor, and Citroen C3 Aircross. Meanwhile, the Tata Curvv EV will contend with electric models such as the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV.
