Tata teases its Auto Expo 2018 line-up
Tata has released a teaser video in which it provides hints of the models that it will bring to the Auto Expo 2018. In the video, three cars are visible under wraps, though which models will be exhibited have not yet been revealed. However, as we had reported earlier, the Indian carmaker is expected to bring its new Baleno and i20 rival, codenamed X451, and its five- and seven-seat rival to the Creta and Compass, codenamed the H5. Along with these two near-production models, Tata is also expected to showcase its capabilities and mobility solutions aimed at smart cities. While many manufacturers are staying away from the Expo, Tata seems to be pulling out all stops to maximise their participation. Here’s what you can expected at Tata’s stall in the 2018 Auto Expo: Tata X451 Based on Tata Motors’ new Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), the X451 will slot in above the Tiago in the carmaker’s line-up. Tata’s new design language, called Impact Design 2.0, will feature on the model, along with uprated versions of the Tiago’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1.05-litre diesel motor. The Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine may also feature at a later date. Expect a launch date for the model sometime in 2019. Tata H5 Underpinned by the Land Rover Discovery Sport’s L550 platform, the production-spec H5 will be available as a five- and seven-seater. Powered by FCA’s 2.0-litre, four-cylinder MultiJet II diesel engine, the five-seater will have it in a 140hp state of tune, while the seven-seater will get it in a 170hp tune. Expect the pricing to undercut the Jeep Compass and even Hyundai’s Creta. Mobility solutions Tata’s display at the Auto Expo will include 26 smart mobility solutions across its passenger and commercial vehicles. The brand’s Smart Mobility pavilion will be split into interactive zones like Residential zone, Sports zone, Smart Energy zone, and Inter and Intracity zones. Each zone, with its digital engagements around the product exhibits, is expected to provide Auto Expo audiences an engaging experience across the pavilion.

Hyundai Creta facelift to get a sunroof
The refreshed Hyundai Creta has been on test in India for some time now, and latest spy pics reveal a crucial detail – the addition of a sunroof.  We expect a sunroof to be exclusive to top-spec versions of the updated SUV, and the inclusion is to meet the growing demand for the feature across car segments. A sunroof is a key differentiator on the Honda WR-V cross hatchback, for instance.    Going by the spy pics, the facelifted Creta for India is likely to get styling similar to the one sold in the South American markets. A test mule with its front and rear covered was recently spotted, wearing a colour scheme and alloy wheel design similar to the Creta Sport variant sold in South America. For those who may not know, Hyundai sells the Creta with three different looks for the Indian, South American and Chinese markets. The refreshed Creta for India will get a larger hexagonal grille with a thick chrome surround. The grille merges with the chunky new front bumper that sports creases and has separate housings for the fog lamps. Also new is a thick black chin that further enhances the SUV's muscular appearance.  At the rear, the new Creta will get a slightly redesigned bumper, and there are chances it'll come with mildly tweaked tail-lamps with LED inserts as well.  As far as engines go, Hyundai is likely to continue with the current set of engines including the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel units.     [...]
