Tata Motors will launch a new special edition version of the Tiago hatchback on the 4th of October, 2019. Called the Tiago Wizz, the car is essentially a paint scheme makeover for the Tiago. The hatchback is likely to get dual tone roof, contrast colour on the front grille, roof rails, blacked out B-Pillar, revised alloy wheels and blacked out wing mirror housings. The engines and gearboxes are likely to be unchanged, and so is the pricing, when compared to the regular Tiago. The Tiago Wizz is likely to be launched at the same price as the current Tiago’s top-end XZ trims. This is because Tata Motors is facing a major sales slowdown even during this year’s festive season. In fact, Renault India has overtaken Tata Motors to become India’s 6th largest car maker in September 2019. In such a situation, a price hike is the last thing that Tata Motors would want, especially on its best selling car – the Tiago.

Just days ago, both the Tiago and Tigor were spotted with a digital instrument cluster, which makes both the cars a little more desirable for younger buyers who want an additional dose of technology. Both cars with the digital instrument cluster are likely to go on sale shortly. Coming back to the Tiago Wizz, the car is likely to be a stock clearance maneuver from Tata Motors as the facelifted version of the Tiago is just around the corner.
The Tiago Wizz is expected to get two engine options, both three cylinder units. The petrol engine will be a 1.2 liter, naturally aspirated unit with 84 Bhp-115 Nm while the diesel will be a turbocharged, 1.1 liter unit with 69 Bhp-140 Nm on tap. The petrol engine is likely to be available with 5 speed manual and AMT options while the diesel will get a 5 speed manual as standard.

Tata Motors is working on a major facelift for both the Tiago and Tigor. Apart from the digital instrument cluster and refreshed interiors, the cars are likely to get many new features on the inside, and a makeover for the interiors. The petrol engine of the Tiago and Tigor will be made Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms compliant. The diesel engine is expected to be discontinued from the Tiago and Tigor as Tata Motors has announced that it won’t be making the 1.1 liter turbo diesel BS6 compliant. Expect to CNG and LPG dual fuel options to be introduced on both cars to compensate for the diesel engined models’ discontinuation.
