Tata Curvv SUV: fresh spy shots show new design details


In the past few months, Tata Motors has launched the Nexon Facelift, Nexon EV facelift, Harrier and the Safari. However, the company not taking its foot off the gas and these new spy shots of the Curvv SUV show the final silhouette of the bodyshell.

  2. Curvv SUV could get a CNG powertrain

Tata Curvv Design 

The Curvv test mule in the spy images, reveals a few new details, like the alloy wheels, which are different from the ones that were on the Auto Expo display vehicle. However, this could just be for testing purposes. The SUV retains the same muscular proportions that were shown in the concept vehicle with the squared-off wheel arches and moulding on the side to give it an overall rugged look. At the rear, the Curvv sports a sloping roofline that gives it a unique look when compared to the other SUVs that it will rival. 

Tata Motors has incorporated the design language from the Curvv into its recent launches. This is visible on exterior bits such as the front LED strip, Vertical Headlamp positioning and even the sculpted bonnet. However, in the spy shots, the rear LED strip is not visible. On the inside, the two-spoke steering wheel, new infotainment screen and digital driver’s display have also been adapted from the Curvv concept shown earlier and we expect the Curvv to retain these elements upon launch. 

Tata Curvv Powertrain 

In spite of the exhaust pipe being visible, we cannot say what powertrain is being tested. The vehicle in the spy shots could be testing out the new turbo-petrol unit, which was displayed at Auto Expo.

Recently, at the launch of the Harrier and Safari, Shailesh Chandra, managing director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd, stated that the launch of the new petrol engine will take a while and according to our sources, this was due to the development of the petrol motor proving to be a challenge.  

In our previous report, we noticed a CNG button in a design sketch that was released by Tata Motors officially, hinting that the Curvv could also get a CNG powertrain.

Tata Motors had stated that they would launch the electric version of the Curvv first, followed by the ICE models.

Tata Curvv SUV launch and rivals 

We expect the electric Curvv SUV to be launched somewhere during the first half of 2024, with the ICE powertrain following soon after. Upon launch, the Curvv will enter the populated midsize SUV segment and rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Grand Vitara, MG Astor, Skoda Kushaq and Volkswagen Taigun
