Tata Motors recently announced that the company’s hatchback offering, the Tiago crossed 2 lakh unit sales in India. This figure includes the entire Tiago range. The Tata Tiago was launched in 2016 and was the company’s first car to follow the ‘Impact’ design language which is also seen on newer cars like the Hexa, Nexon and the Harrier SUV.
The Tiago is Tata’s best-selling car in India, thanks to its feature rich cabin and value for money proposition. Moreover, Tata made sure that the Tiago felt fresh through its 3-year run in our market. The brand launched a special edition of the Tiago called the Wizz Edition, a crossover inspired Tiago NRG and also the performance-based Tiago JTP.
In terms of powertrain options, there is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed AMT. This engine produces 85 PS of peak power and 114 Nm of torque. The diesel Tiago is powered by a 1.05-litre three-cylinder engine that produces 70 PS of peak power and 140 Nm of torque but can only be had with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said, "The Tata Tiago is a testimony to the strong connect we have established with our customers by offering best in class features at a great value proposition. The Tiago continues to be one of the few models in the hatchback segment that is still registering positive growth despite being in its third year of production. With 18 renowned accolades, the Tiago is the country's most awarded compact hatchback. I would like to express my gratitude to all the customers who have contributed to this milestone. We are confident that the Tiago will continue to win the hearts of customers across India and thrive as a successful offering in the hatchback segment."
Given the success the Tiago has received over the years, Tata Motors is all set to introduce a facelift of the car. It is expected to be launched later this year.
