The auto freaks in India haven been eagerly waiting for the launch of Tata Pixel, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2012. Tata Pixel launch has been much awaited because it is another small car from the stables of Tata Motors that will be in the price range between Rs. 2 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakh.
The car has been already launched in Europe but the launch date of the new India-bound Tata Pixel is yet to be officially announced. The car has futuristic looks and a compact design, which will make it a perfect vehicle for heavily crowded areas.
Tata Pixel will have the capability to reach a top speed of 105 kmph. The drum brakes at the front and back would provide further stability. Tata Pixel to be launched in India is a two-door hatchback with protruding wheel arches, angular headlights and high tail lamps. The car gets scissor doors, which are the highlight of Tata Pixel exteriors.
Tata Pixel will come with a 1.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine with a capability of producing 65 bhp at 5150 rpm and the car will be able to produce 48 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm. The little hatchback will be able to run faster and steadily because it will be light in weight, and use McPherson struts and coil spring suspension system to maintain its balance. The engine will be mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.
The size of the hatchback is one of its biggest advantages after the expected price. The scissor doors are a highlight of this car as well. The optimized aerodynamics, start-stop technology along with other features, like remote locking, 4-speed manual transmission, folding rear seats, etc., are making the auto segment wait for the car impatiently.
