The Tiago NGR also gets cladding on the sides and wheel arches that give it a beefy look. The Tiago NRG also gets blacked-out ORVMs with integrated turn indicators, black roof rails, new 14-inch alloy wheels that look quite different from the regular one and a roof-mounted spoiler.

The interiors of the Tata Tiago NRG remains similar to the regular model. The only differentiating factor is the silver and orange inserts on the bezels of air conditioning vents, centre console, and the surroundings of the gearbox lever. The Tiago NRG is also bigger than the regular version of the hatchback. It is longer, wider and taller than the standard version. The ground clearance of the Tiago NRG is 180 mm, which is 10 mm higher than the regular version of the Tiago.
