A new variant of Tata Tiago, the Tiago NRG has been launched in India in petrol and diesel engine options. While the changes are more cosmetic and feature-based, there is no change in the existing engine systems. The key highlights of this newly loaded version of Tiago are:
Keeping in the mind the rough terrains of India, this new car gets a 180mm ground clearance, which is 15mm more than the earlier version. Intelligent electric steering system and backed by 1.2-litre revotron petrol and 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel, the car has the usual 5 manual gear transmissions.
The Tata Tiago NRG is expected to come equipped with 14-inch alloy wheels, and a roof-mounted spoiler in its top end model. The new vehicle also gets an upgraded infotainment system from Harman that would support 3D Navi Maps for navigation, and voice commands for media and phone. It also gets 4 speakers and 2 tweeters from Harman
Tiago NRG gets seats with body-hugging bolsters with a unique denim kind of fabric. Black interiors for the cabin with some orange highlights and a cool glove box are the changes on the inside of the car.
As far as the exteriors are concerned, all care has been taken to give the car a tougher and sportier look. Black cladding around the bumpers, unique wheel arches, black roof rails, blackened treatment to the grille and faux skid plates are some of the major appearance changes. The wheel arches and four-spoke DurAlloy wheels give the car its sportier profile while the real skid plates make it look tougher and muscular.
Tata Tiago NRG comes powered with safety features like dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, corner stability control, follow-me-home headlamps, reverse parking assistance and also a rear viper for value-add.
The expected price for the petrol variant is 5.5 lakhs and will go up to 6.5 lakhs for the diesel variant.
The car is in direct competition with Hyundai Eon, Datsun Go, Alto K10, Renault Kwid, and Maruti Suzuki Celerio.
