Tata has been working relentlessly on the Curvv for the Indian market. After the brand launched the new Nexon, Harrier and the Safari in the market, the new Curvv is one of the next launches from the Indian automobile giant. Tata Motors Curvv was showcased in a concept form but has been spotted testing in production guise for quite sometime now. New spy pictures reveal the coupe-design that was also present on the concept version of the car.

The new spy images by ACI shows the test mule heavily camouflaged. There are a few new details though. The sloping roofline is quite prominent now and confirms the notchback shape of the upcoming SUV. The Nexon will become the most-affordable Coupe-SUV. Currently, only expensive brand like Merceds-Benz and BMW offer such body styles.

The new spy shots of the Curvv also show the new, differently designed alloy wheels compared to the ones displayed with the concept vehicle at the Auto Expo. But there are a lot of similarities to the concept version including the muscular proportions, squared off wheel arches and a thick cladding that adds a rugged look.

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.
