Tata Motors is working to launch a facelifted version of the Tiago. The launch is expected to happen in the coming months and the same changes will also come up on the Tata Tigor, which is based on the Tata Tiago. While the car has been spotted testing under heavy camouflage and makeshift headlamps, which indicates a lot of changes in the upcoming model.
The Tata Tiago is expected to be launched at around the festive season, which starts in September. That’s when the demand for the vehicles become the highest in the market. A new picture on Honest Auto Tech reveals the new instrument cluster of the upcoming hatchback. It shows a major change in the car. The instrument cluster of the upcoming Tata Tiago will become all-digital, which will replace the current twin-pod analogue instrument cluster with Driver Information Display. The new cluster looks quite funky and is aimed at young buyers. There are two wing-inspired indicators that show the fuel level and the engine rpm of the vehicle. In the middle, a monochrome display shows the speed in big letters. Also, the same display also shows the engine temperature gauge and odometers/trip meters. The other information like driving modes, warning lamps are positioned inside the display.
This is a major update in the car but it is not known if the dashboard of the vehicle has been updated too. The Tata Tiago was launched in the Indian market in 2016 and to keep the vehicle fresh in the market, a facelifted version will be launched. However, it seems like Tata will update the vehicle all-around, which will make the Tiago look quite different from the current model.
The spy pictures of the Tiago show the vehicle under heavy camouflage. While it cannot be confirmed, the Tiago is most likely to be launched with a new front-end, which will get an updated set of headlamps, grille and the bumper. Tata is expected to follow the latest design language of the brand to design the upcoming entry-level hatchback. Tiago may also get a few additional features.
The engine options of the Tiago currently comprises of both petrol and diesel engine options. There is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 85 PS and peak torque of 114 Nm. The diesel-powered variants get the 1.05-litre three-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 70 PS and peak torque of 140 Nm. However, Tata may soon discontinue the diesel engine option since the BS6 emission compliance will be implemented from next year.
Tata will also bring in these changes to the models based on the Tiago. There is Tata Tiago NRG, Tata Tiago JTP and the sedan – Tata Tigor, which will receive similar updates in the future.
