Tata Motors has officially revealed first pictures of three of its updated, BS6-compliant models – the Tata Nexon facelift, the Tata Tiago facelift and the Tata Tigor facelift.
Bookings for the BS6 models are now open, with the booking amount being set at Rs 11,000. Tata Motors has said it will launch the facelifted Nexon, Tiago and Tigor later in January, possibly a little after the introduction of the Tata Altroz, which will be launched in India on January 22.
The three refreshed models all feature Tata’s new Impact Design 2.0 language. While the design of the Tata Nexon facelift is largely similar to that of the Nexon EV (also set to be launched in the coming weeks), the facelifted Tiago and Tigor have a face inspired by the Altroz’s, with a chrome-lined grille and a raised bonnet. Both the Tiago and Tigor sport redesigned headlights, a new grille incorporating several Y-shaped elements and the Tigor facelift also sports LED DRLs mounted in the front bumper.
The statement from Tata mentions the facelifted models will have more features and will be priced higher than the BS4 models, but doesn’t offer any more details. Along with the updates, Tata is also likely to give the Nexon, Tiago and Tigor a set of interior changes. Tata has also said it will roll out connected car technology across its model line-up in a phased manner, but it’s unclear at this point if the facelifted models will be available with the same at the time of launch.
In terms of engines, the Tata Nexon facelift continues with both its 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms. Both the Tiago and Tigor’s current 1.2-litre petrol engine have been upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms, but it’s important to note that neither will be offered with a diesel engine any more. Tata has decided to axe small diesels from its line-up, and the 70hp, 1.05-litre diesel engine won’t be offered with the facelift. A 5-speed manual will be offered along with the option of an AMT, and there’s even a possibility of a CNG variant being introduced in the future.
While prices for the facelifted Tata Tiago and Tigor are expected to go up by a fair bit, prices for the Nexon are set to go up by a big margin – the petrol version is expected to be Rs 60,000-90,000 more expensive while the Nexon diesel is set to become pricier by up to Rs 1.4 lakh. Presently, Tata Nexon prices start at Rs 6.7 lakh for the petrol XE and go up to Rs 11.4 lakh for the diesel XZA+.
