Tata Motors has re-launched the Tiago NRG in the Indian market after brief discontinuation last year. The new facelifted version of the Tiago NRG gets a price tag of Rs 6.57 lakh for manual and Rs 7.09 lakh, ex-showroom for the AMT automatic. The Tiago NRG is available only with a single variant option. Tata has already dispatched the units of the new model to the dealerships so the deliveries are expected to start soon.
The Tiago NRG is a more rugged version of the standard Tiago, which has become a popular model in the Tata Motors stable. The new model gets a sharper-looking grille and headlamps design, which of course look similar to the standard Tiago hatchback. The main difference on the outside that you get to notice is the faux body cladding all around to add a rugged look to the body. Also, the roof rails are standard with the car and it increases the height further.
There are also redesigned front and rear bumpers that also get faux skid plates. This design theme further adds a sense of masculinity to the Tiago NRG. Tata offers the car in four colour options – Forest Green, Snow White, Cloudy Gret and Fire Red.
Tata offers the Tiago NRG in only a single variant option based on the higher-trims with a few feature additions. Which means it comes packed with features. To start with, the new model gets a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Tata also offers an automatic climate control system, speakers from Harman, steering mounted audio and telephonic controls, power windows, remote central locking, powered ORVMs, adjustable driver seat and others.
The safety net includes dual airbags, ABS, day-night rearview mirror, rear parking sensors among others. Since the standard Tiago gets the 4-star safety rating, the Tiago NRG also carries forward the same GNCAP safety ratings.
It gets 181mm ground clearance and also gets dual-tone 15-inch alloy wheels. Tata Motors claim the suspension system has been re-tuned too. The cabin is all-black to add a sporty touch to the cabin.
Just like the standard Tata Tiago, the NRG variant will be available only with a single engine option. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is naturally aspirated and generates a maximum power of 86 PS and peak torque of 113 Nm. Tata will offer both automatic and manual transmission options with the Tiago NRG.
While Tata is also working on the CNG-powered version of the Tiago, they are yet to announce any development on it at the moment. Tata is likely to launch the CNG version of the vehicle in the coming months in the Indian market.
