Tata Curvv unveiled in a nearly production-ready form at Bharat Mobility Expo 2024

Tata Curvv, one of the most highly anticipated car launches in 2024 is in its production-ready form and has made its debut at the Bharat Mobiltiy Expo 2024. This represents the internal combustion engine (ICE) variant of the upcoming Tata SUV, which has now been officially announced to include a diesel engine choice.

 

1. Diesel Variant Specifications

 

 

During the Auto Expo 2023, it was announced that the Curvv would be equipped with Tata’s latest 1.2-liter turbo-petrol TGDi engine, generating 125 PS and 225 Nm of torque. Now, the version presented at the Bharat Mobility Expo confirms the inclusion of a 1.5-liter diesel unit, producing 115 PS and 260 Nm of torque for the Curvv. It is expected that the Cruvv ICE model will offer both petrol and diesel engine options.

 

The Curvv will also be available in an all-electric variant, known as the Curvv EV, with potential multiple battery packs providing an estimated range of over 500 km.

 

2. Design Upgrades

 

 

The Tata Curvv ICE, presented at the Bharat Mobility Expo, closely resembles what customers can expect to find in the showrooms, with some slight modifications. It features a refreshed front end compared to the concept showcased at the Auto Expo 2023. Its front fascia bears a striking resemblance to the Nexon, incorporating elements such as triangular headlights and fog lamp arrangement, LED daytime running lights (DRLs), and a large chrome-studded bumper.

 

However, the most striking angle for the Curvv is its profile, underlining its distinctive design feature: the coupe roofline, which extends seamlessly to the elevated rear end. The Curvv ICE displayed features 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels that leave ample space within the wheel arches, particularly visible at the rear.

 

While the rear design hasn’t undergone significant alterations since the previous concept, the details are now refined in this production-ready rendition. A prominent styling feature is the horizontal tail lamp, stretching across the SUV’s width, accompanied by a split roof-integrated spoiler.

 

3. Interior upgrades And feature specifications

 

While Tata has not disclosed specific details regarding the interior of the Cuvv ICE, glimpses of the showcased model’s cabin were provided. It features a new 4-spoke steering wheel reminiscent of the Harrier, featuring an illuminated ‘Tata’ logo at the center. Additionally, dual digital displays are present, with one serving for infotainment purposes and the other for instrumentation, also Tata has plans to include a touch-based climate control panel in the interior.

 

The finalized version of the Curvv is expected to incorporate ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging, a panoramic sunroof, and paddle shifters. In terms of safety features, it is expected to offer six airbags, a 360-degree camera, and ISOFIX child seat mounts.

 

4. Launch timeline and Competitors

The expected launch timeframe for the Tata Curvv ICE is by the end of 2024, with the Curvv EV initially scheduled to debut first. It is estimated that the former could have a starting price of Rs 10.50 lakh, while its electric variant might commence from Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom). The Curvv ICE is poised to compete with rivals such as the Hyundai Creta, Maruti Grand Vitara, and Honda Elevate, whereas the Curvv EV will be positioned against contenders like the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric.
