The Tiago was launched in 2016 and it became the highest selling Tata hatchback in the country in August 2018. The BS6 version was introduced earlier this year.
The Tiago facelift seems to have brought a fillip to sales, showing a near 90 per cent growth over the same period last year. Tata Motors has reached a new production milestone. The 3,00,000th Tiago has rolled off the assembly line in Sanand, Gujarat.
The facelifted Tiago features sharper styling, with the Tata signature ‘humanity line’ occupying pride of place at the front of the car. A raised hood lip is also in line with upcoming pedestrian safety laws, while changes at the rear are limited to a redesigned bumper and tail lights. Upgrades inside are highlighted by a switch to digital instrumentation, and new upholstery design options.
The sole engine to continue on is the 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol, with 86PS and 113Nm of torque. This engine can be paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, or an AMT.
Tata Tiago has received a four-star global NCAP rating making it one of the most highly safety-rated small hatchbacks on sale. Safety features on the Tiago include two airbags as standard, ABS with EBD, corner stability control and rear parking sensors.
