Tata recently launched the NRG variant of the Tiago. It is now based on the new facelifted version of the Tiago. The new variant was launched on 4th August and it is priced at Rs. 6.57 lakhs ex-showroom for the manual variant while the automatic gearbox is priced at Rs. 7.09 lakhs ex-showroom. Tata Motors has released a new TVC for the NRG variants now.
The NRG is aimed towards people who want something different that is currently on the road. The Tiago has been selling well and the NRG variant adds a bunch of faux cladding and cosmetic changes to make it unique and stand out on the road.
The NRG is 37 mm longer than the regular Tiago because of the added body cladding in the front and the rear bumper. The ground clearance of the NRG has also been increased by 11 mm to give that crossover look and so that it can handle bad roads better. The NRG’s ground clearance is 181 mm whereas the Tiago’s ground clearance is 170 mm.
Tiago NRG gets 15-inch dual-tone Hyperstyle wheels that mimic the look of an alloy wheel. The roof rails, roof, a part of C-pillar, door handles and outside rearview mirrors are finished in black. The wheel arches have thick cladding that makes a squircle shape.
The front and rear bumper are slightly redesigned and now have a faux silver skid plate. There is also a plastic piece that joins sits between both the tail lamps. It also comes with a rear spoiler and there is black treatment on the B and C-pillar.
Tata has added some features and removed some also. So, they removed the automatic climate control and have added keyless entry, electric release for the tailgate and push-button to start/stop. The outside rearview mirrors come with an autofold function and have LED turn indicators mounted on them.
Other features include a cooled glovebox, digital instrument cluster, multi-information display, rear smart wiper with washer, all four power windows, multi-function steering wheel and much more. It comes with a 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It is connected to four speakers and four tweeters sourced from Harman. You also get the ConnectNext App Suite.
Being a Tata, there are a lot of safety features on offer. It comes with an Anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake Distribution, dual airbags, cornering stability control, rear parking camera with dynamic guidelines, rear parking sensors and puncture repair kit. Just like the Tiago, the NRG variant also has a 4-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test which is the best in the segment.
There are no changes made to the engine. So, the NRG variant also comes with a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated, three-cylinder petrol engine. It produces 86 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 113 Nm. You can get it with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AMT.
