2020 Tata Tiago Facelift gets exterior and interior updates and will likely be offered only with a petrol engine

If any product that has impressed the most in sales volume in recent years from Tata Motors, it has to be the Tiago. Since going on sale in early 2016, the Tiago has been the best-selling model for the brand and brought a new image for the homegrown manufacturer that harbingered positive response from customers in the next three years.

However, as the competition intensifies and the automobile market is on a downward sales trend throughout 2019, Tata’s sales numbers have been plunging and it recorded more than 50 per cent sales drop in September 2019 to exacerbate the woes. To regain the lost volumes, Tata is preparing to launch a facelift for the Tiago.

It has already been spied testing across the country and the test mule has evolved over time. A prototype was recently caught on camera in Ladakh and it reiterates the updated front fascia going in line with the upcoming Altroz. It gains a redesigned grille section, updated bumper with new fog lamp housing, new set of tail lamps and possible LED DRL treatment in the top-spec variants.
