Curvv, which will be unveiled at Auto Expo 2023, is aimed at the fiercely competitive compact SUV market. Curvv will face strong competition from best-selling models including the Hyundai Creta, Maruti Grand Vitara, Kia Seltos, and Honda Elevate. Abdul Salam, an enthusiast for cars, saw a new test mule of the Tata Curvv near Chitradurga, on the Mumbai-Bangalore route, before its launch early next year.
Tata Curvv – Key features
It's difficult to make space in a crowded market segment. Curvv is providing a completely new design which can be the deciding factor for certain customers. Its roofline, which slopes in a coupe-like manner sets it apart from its main competitors. Vertically stacked headlamps, full-width LED illumination in the front and back, stylish 17-inch alloy wheels, sequential turn indicators, a tall boot section, and edgy tail lamps are some of the other standout features.
There was a test mule with flush door handles that was recently observed. This is the first time this treatment has been applied to a Tata automobile built to production specs. Mahindra XUV700 deserves all the credit for popularizing flush door handles. The XUV700 top-spec versions debuted these fashionable grips. By eliminating clutter, flush door handles contribute to a smooth visual profile.
Tata Curvv interiors
There has been a tendency to test out new items, as seen in previous introductions. This could be advantageous for Curvv. Tata is probably going to pack Curvv with a ton of features. There will be some equipment shared with the previously released Nexon EV makeover. It will have a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and ventilated front seats.
The Curvv is equipped with a touch-sensitive HVAC panel, wireless smartphone connectivity, auto-dimming IRVMs, an air purifier, a wireless charger, a sunroof, and more. The Tata emblem will glow on the new two-spoke steering wheel that will be installed in the SUV.
It's possible that Curvv will have these qualifications as well, given that the majority of Tata cars that have been released recently have had excellent crash test scores. Once again, Curvv may benefit from this. particularly in contrast to rivals with lesser ratings or small SUVs that haven't been subjected to crash testing. Six airbags, a 360-degree surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control are all part of the Curvv's safety package. It's also likely that Curvv's highest-spec models will come with ADAS.
Tata Curvv performance
Tata has not provided any information on the Curvv's electric powertrain. It will most likely be built on the company's Gen2 platform. The Curvv electric SUV is intended to have a range of 500 kilometers. Tata will use a new 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine in the ICE variant and it has a maximum power of 125 PS and a peak torque of 225 Nm. It could get the 7-speed DCT transmission that is already available with the Nexon makeover.
Tata intends to prioritize competitive pricing in order to offer Curvv the greatest launchpad. The cost of the EV variant may be approximately Rs 20 lakh. It will serve as a substitute for vehicles like the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric. The Curvv ICE variant may be available for as little as Rs 10.50 lakh.
