The Tata Curvv is assured to enter the compact SUV segment in India offering both internal combustion engine (ICE) and electric vehicle (EV) variants. The Tata Nexon subcompact SUV uses a similar strategy. Although the two Tata SUVs differ significantly from one another they also have some qualities in common.

Design Similarities Inside and Outside

The Curvv concept introduced a new split-headlight and LED Daytime Running Light (DRL) design which was later incorporated into the facelifted Nexon. This design language will also be visible in the Curvv ICE as seen in the version displayed at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024. Key design elements include sharper LED DRLs that underline the grille triangular housings for the LED headlights and chrome inserts in the lower part of the bumper. The Curvv will also feature a connected LED DRL setup similar to the one on the facelifted Tata Nexon EV.
Both SUVs boast a simple dashboard design and a touch-based climate control panel promoting simplicity and modernity.
