    Tata Tiago: a quick recap

    The Tiago was first launched in 2016 as the spiritual successor to the Indica. Since then, a facelift was introduced for the Tiago in 2020 that uses the automaker’s ‘Impact Design’ philosophy. This was also when Tata Motors achieved the 3 lakh production milestone for the midsize hatchback. 

    An updated Tiago NRG based on the facelifted version was launched in 2021 that came with faux body cladding for a rugged look. Three months ago, Tata Motors launched the Tiago iCNG in an effort to compete with the Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG.

    Tata Tiago: mechanical highlights

    The petrol-powered Tiago uses the tried and tested 1.2-litre, three-cylinder Revotron motor, producing 86hp and 113Nm via a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. 

    Meanwhile, the CNG version uses the same motor, producing 73hp and 95Nm via a sole 5-speed manual transmission (ARAI-claimed fuel economy of 26.49km/kg). Tata previously offered a 1.05-litre diesel engine on the pre-facelifted version of the Tiago.

    Tata Tiago: safety and features

    With a 4-star GNCAP safety rating under its belt, the Tiago gets dual airbags, ABS, rear parking camera and sensors. Other features include 14-inch wheels, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, eight-speaker Harman audio system, a digital instrument cluster, and automatic climate control.

    Production plans and future

    In March 2022, Tata Motors expressed its aim of producing 5 lakh cars a year via its Sanand plant. As it stands, the automaker currently has a capacity of producing 4,80,000 units across its multiple plants. Tata Motors recently unveiled the Curvv midsize electric SUV concept and will soon launch the long-range version of the Nexon EV.
