Tata launched the much-awaited JTP twins in the Indian market recently. The Indian manufacturer launched the high-performance versions of both the Tiago and the Tigor in the market and they both have become the most affordable hot versions in the market.
Even though Tata has released the price and the specifications of both the vehicles, they are yet to reach dealerships across the country. However, new pictures show that Tata has started dispatching the Tigor JTP to the dealerships and the hot sedan was spotted at a dealership in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The dealers have started receiving the display units of the Tigor JTP and the test-drives are expected to start soon.
Tata launched the JTP twins last month. The Tata Tiago JTP is priced at Rs. 6.39 lakhs while the sedan Tigor JTP is priced at Rs. 7.49 lakhs, both prices ex-showroom Delhi. The Tiago JTP can do 0-100 km/h in just 9.95 seconds while the Tigor JTP can hit the ton from a standstill in 10.38 seconds. Tata is selling the product in only limited cities that includes Kolkata, Delhi, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Bengaluru, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kannur, Thrissur, Mumbai and Cochin.
The Tigor JTP and the Tiago JTP are powered by a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that also powers the Tata Nexon. The engine generates a maximum of 114 Bhp at 5,000 rpm and 150 Nm of peak torque between 2,000 and 4,000 rpms. It gets a 5-speed manual transmission but the gear ratios have been altered to ensure quicker acceleration.
There are multi-drive modes in the performance vehicles that can alter the vehicle’s output. Mechanically, the vehicle has been upgraded with stiffer suspension set-up and the body comes down by millimetres for better handling. However, the ground clearance remains the same at 166mm, which ensures that there is no problem clearing the speed breakers and potholes.
The Tigor JTP and the Tiago JTP get a lot of visual updates too. Both the vehicles get vented bonnet, new front and rear bumpers, new front grille design, body kit including side skirts and blacked out mirrors. There are also rear spoilers, new alloy wheels and twin barrel headlamps. There are changes on the inside too, the vehicles get an all-black interior with new fabric on the seats.
The seats also get contrasting red stitching. The regular pedals have been replaced with new aluminium ones for the sporty look. Both the vehicles also get an 8-speaker system with voice command and navigation infotainment system. Tata started taking the bookings at Rs. 11,000 and said that the deliveries would start by this month.
