UPDATE: Tata Buzzard SUV (H7X) debuts at Geneva motor show 2019

Tata Motors has been drip-feeding info about its 2019 Geneva motor show line-up over the past week. The latest teaser image shows a Jaguar Land Rover-like rotary gear selector and an electronic parking brake. While the teaser does not throw light on the Tata model in question, it’s safe to assume it’s the H7X SUV. The H7X, is in essence, the seven-seat version of the Tata Harrier.

A longer rear overhang and third row of seats aside, the H7X will also differ to the current Harrier in its mechanicals. The H7X will feature a higher-powered (near 170hp) version of the 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine and will also debut a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The teaser suggests the automatic will feature the distinctive rotary gear selector popularised by Jaguar Land Rover cars. On JLR cars, the gear selector rises when the engine is switched on, better known as the ‘Jaguar handshake’. The electric parking brake switch visible in the picture suggests the feature will also be part of the equipment on the H7X.

The H7X will be joined by the Altroz premium hatchback, the 45X-based EV hatchback concept and an all-new Hornbill micro SUV concept at the Geneva Motor show 2019.
