Tata Motors is one of India’s leading car manufacturer. They are known for the build quality of their cars in the market. They have a variety of products in their portfolio and Tiago is currently Tata’s entry level product in the market. Tiago is a small family hatchback that competes with cars like Maruti Celerio, Hyundai Santro in the segment. Tata even had launched a performance version of Tiago known as Tiago JTP few years ago. Unfortunately it did not do well in the market and was later discontinued. Now here we have a render video that shows how the Tiago would look like it was a WRC Rally car.
The video and render images have been shared by Bimble Designs. In this render video, the artist completely transforms a regular Tata Tiago hatchback into a hardcore rally car. The car is called Tata Tiago WRC Rally Edition. Artist starts with a stock Tata Tiago hatchback and instantly removes the stock wheels.
The wheels are replaced with wider rally wheels and low profile tyres. Once that was done, the front and the rear fender on the hatchback was redesigned. It was done in order to accommodate the wide wheels. The fenders are designed in a way that it makes the car more aerodynamic. The car was then lowered and the front bumper and the side got body skirting to enhance the lowered look of the car. No changes have been made to the front grille, headlamps and fog lamps. Headlamps have been smoked and the lower grille is now bigger than stock version.
Overall, the hatchback looks a lot more wider and muscular than the original version. Other changes on the car include a modified bonnet. it gets two air vents and the vent is kept in place use hood pins. A roof scoop has been installed and a huge spoiler is also installed at the rear. The tail lamps have been blacked out and there is a diffuser at the rear as well. As this is designed to look like a rally car, the car would also be getting a roll cage, bucket seats and other features that are there on the stock Tiago will be removed. This actually completes the look of the car.
The final render actually looks very different and sporty from stock version. The matte black and grey finish on the hatchback gives it a sporty look. Red Bull, Total and Tata Motors livery can also be seen on the car at places. The render looks brilliant and the artist was successful in converting a regular hatchback into a rally car.
