Tata Tiago, the best-selling model of the manufacturer was launched 2016 and since then the entry-level hatchback has not received any major updates in the Indian market. However, Tata is currently testing a heavily camouflaged version of the vehicle and it is expected to make its entry in the Indian market later this year. It will be a mid-life facelift that will keep the model fresh for a few more years before a full model change is launched.
Here is a rendered image of the 2020 Tata Tiago, which gets an updated front-end. The rendered image is made by CarToq’s in-house render artist – Vipin Vathoopan, which shows what the updated model may look like when it is launched in the market.
Tata unveiled the all-new production version of the Altroz at the Geneva Motor Show. The premium hatchback, which will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz gets the Tata’s latest IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy, which is likely to inspire the smallest hatchback in the Tata’s line-up heavily. The front-end of the upcoming Tiago as seen in the rendered image will get updated thoroughly. The reshaped headlamps seamlessly integrate to the grille of the vehicle, just like the Altroz. It gives a wide grille effect to the vehicle and smoked headlamps add a touch of sportiness to the Tiago.
The bumper of the upcoming Tiago is expected to be upgraded too. Shedding its simple looking image, the facelifted version can use a sharper looking bumper with a wider radiator grille. The overall shape of the Tiago is expected to remain the same. However, the rear bumper and tail lamps may get updated to complement the new front end of the car. We may also see new alloy wheels but as Tata has always stayed away from offering good-looking alloy wheels in the production models, we can write that off for now. Tata launched the new XZ+ trim with the Tiago sometime back which received updates like smoked headlamps.
On the inside, a slew of changes can be expected. While Tata may keep the using the fabric to cover the seats, the colour may change to a darker theme. Also, the dashboard and the door trims can be updated to make the cabin feel fresh. Tata recently launched Tiago and Tigor with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, the facelifted version may come with a new infotainment system altogether.
Coming to the powerhouses, the Tiago may retain the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine with the update but Tata may launch a BS-VI compliant engine to keep up with the new emission norms that will be in place next year. The 1.05-litre diesel engine that produces 69 Bhp may get dropped due to the emission norms. The same updates are expected to be carried to the Tiago JTP and Tiago NRG too.
