Tata Timero Trademark
The micro SUV will compete in a segment that does not have many players at present

Tata has trademarked the Timero name for its upcoming product and we think it might be the official name the firm wants to give the production version of the HBX micro SUV concept showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the launch of the car had been postponed and now this development arrives, which could mean that the car might be introduced very soon indeed.

The HBX concept is a micro SUV with a rugged styling, having design elements inspired by the Harrier at the front, while down the sides, it has a shoulder line, squared wheel arches, neat LED taillights, a tailgate with creases and a skid plate as well.

Inside, the car will get semi-digital instrument cluster, floating touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, driving modes, among others.

It had been stated that the production version will retain 90 percent of the details seen on the concept car, which would only be beneficial, since it is a good-looking thing.

Expected to be powered by 1.2-litre petrol engine in naturally aspirated and turbocharged forms, the HBX which has seen Tata Timero trademarked as its possible name, will get a manual and AMT options as well.

There is also a possibility of an electric version of the car hitting our roads and with Nexon EV doing pretty well in its segment, Tata would only look to take the lead with additional products.

Prices of the car will begin at around Rs. 4.5 lakhs and it will rival the Mahindra KUV100 and Maruti Ignis when it gets launched.
