The Alphs platform was supposedly ready by 2020 itself but even after 3 years has passed but still the cars running on older X1 platform.This 3 pot engine madness needs to be died down. Every car is getting ruined with this engine. Shitty balancing and poor vibration is the only advantage. These guys are simply cost cutting and giving an inferior engine.
Even Suzuki swift new gen will be 3 pot engine. Give back the 4 cylinder. Smooth and efficient enough.
Also TATA motors in its transition done a lot of weird decision. They pull brakes on 2.2 Dicor which is a competent engine before BS6. Killed Hexa which started to gain a good response. Being late to the GDI engines. Again a questionable Petrol engine for upcoming Safari/Harrier (1.5L 165 HP vs 2.0L 200HP mstallion) engine. Also fails to fix issues in older X1 platform cars like Nexon, Tiago and Tigor. Comparatively new ALFA and Omega Arc platform has better ergonomics.
Also TATA lacks the will to go Global. Compared to Mahindra started with Scorpio Pik up in South Africa and Australia and now completely went into further expansion with ScoripioN, XUV700 and upcoming Pik up.
