Commenting on the launch of the new JTP variants, Mr. Nagbhushan Gubbi (CEO), JTSV said,
Last year has seen the JTP brand establish as an exciting prospect and a brand which has carved its own cult following in the auto performance segment. It is now time to switch gears and speed ahead. With immense excitement, we are elated to announce the launch of the new avatar of the JTP twins. This launch reflects our commitment to constantly improve and push boundaries to achieve better. We’re positive that this move will be warmly appreciated by our customers and will only extend the legacy of a #RacerAtHeart.
The Tata Tiago and Tigor JTP use the 1.2 liter-3 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine borrowed from the Nexon compact SUV. On the JTP twins, this engine has a different state of tune, and makes 112 Bhp-150 Nm. The 5 speed manual gearbox has revised gear ratios for better low end and mid range grunt. The suspension has also been tweaked with stiffer springs for better road grip and handling.
Ground clearance has been reduced as well, for a sportier drive. All in all, the Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP are among the least priced high performance cars that money can buy in India. There’s talk of Tata Motors and Jayem Tata Special Vehicles (JSTV) developing high performance versions of the Nexon and Harrier as well. However, a clear timeline on when the Nexon and Harrier would get the JTP treatment is not available currently.
Tata Motors also sells a long list of regular Tiago and Tigor variants, which are available with naturally aspirated petrol and turbocharged diesel engines. Tata even sells the Tigor’s electric version to cab aggregators and government agencies. The Tiago has been Tata Motors’ best selling car for years now, and is all set to get a major makeover sometime next year. The Tigor will also get a facelift soon.
