Tata Curvv Compact SUV: The country’s leading automobile manufacturer Tata Motors has showcased the production model of the upcoming Tata Curve at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 organized at Pragati Maidan in Delhi in the beginning of February 2024. This is not an electric car, but a car with internal combustion engine (ICE). It is expected to compete with Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos in the compact SUV segment in the market. But this will be a car between Tata Motors’ Nexon and Harrier. The biggest thing is that Tata Curve will be closer to the company’s other model Nexon. Let us know about these two cars in detail along with some key points.
Dimension of Curve-Nexon
Now if we talk about the dimensions of these two cars, the length of Tata Curve is about 4308 mm, while the length of Tata Nexon is 3995 mm. This means that the Curve is longer than the Nexon by about 313 mm. Talking about the width of these two, the Curve is around 1810 mm wide and the Nexon is 1804 mm wide. In this also the curve is wider than Nexon by about 6 mm. Also, in terms of height, the Curve is 1630 mm tall and the Nexon is 1620 mm tall. In this also the curve is about 10 mm higher than that of Nexon. In both these cars, the wheelbase of Curve is 2560 mm and that of Nexon is 2498 mm. In this also the wheelbase of Curve is more than that of Nexon by about 62 mm.
Style and Design of Curve-Nexon
The biggest feature of Tata Curve is that it has a rooftop coupe, which appears higher at the rear. Tata has also used flush-fitting door handles on the curves, which are seen on its production-spec models. If the company continues this, then this could be the first feature in the compact SUV segment. Whereas, Nexon has a straight tailgate. The Curve gets a taller rear profile and boot space. The Curve has a larger boot space of 422 litres, which is about 40 liters more than the Nexon.
Nexon is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels in its high-spec variant. At the same time, the car manufacturer has given large 18-inch wheels in the Curve. The Nexon’s wheels get plastic aero flaps within a diamond-cut design, while the Curve’s alloy wheels get a petal-like design.
Curve-Nexon’s attractive sunroof and steering wheel
Tata Motors has opted for a panoramic sunroof for the Curve compared to the single-pane unit on the Nexon. This will definitely make the cabin more ventilated and less claustrophobic. Despite many in-cabin similarities with the Nexon, the Curve does not get the same 2-spoke steering wheel. Tata has given it a 4-spoke steering wheel like the Harrier, which includes the ‘Tata’ logo as well as audio and calling controls.
Curve-Nexon Large Touchscreen
The Nexon with its updated midlife refresh gets larger digital displays for co-infotainment and instrumentation (10.25-inch each). At the same time, an even bigger central touchscreen has been provided in the Curve. This is the same 12.3-inch unit that is found in the new Nexon EV with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
Features of Tata Curve
The Tata Curve is expected to be offered with the same safety features as the Nexon, including six airbags and a 360-degree camera, but it may be equipped with some updated driver assistant systems (ADAS). . Apart from this, features like adaptive cruise control, rear-cross traffic alert and autonomous emergency braking (AEB) can also be provided in it.
It is estimated that the price of Tata Curve in the ex-showroom India can be between Rs 10.50 lakh to Rs 16 lakh. At the same time, the ex-showroom price of Tata Nexon is between Rs 8.10 lakh to Rs 15.50 lakh. This clearly means that Tata Curve, the company’s popular model, will not only be bigger in dimensions than Tata Nexon, but after coming in the market, its price will also be higher than Nexon.
