Tata Tiago Aktiv is the accessorised version of the regular hatchback; could be priced around Rs. 30,000 over standard model
Tata Motors appears to have gone on about making the most of its latest offerings. It launched the long-awaited Tiago in the market in 2016 with a very competitive price range and since then reaping benefits. It has become the consistent best-seller for the homegrown brand monthly and is preparing to get a new accessorised version soon.
Tata showcased the Tiago (formerly Zica) alongside its beefed up accessorised version called the Aktiv at the Auto Expo 2016. With the show-goers giving positive feedback and the attractive current optional features list getting asked for by the buyers, Tata has long been reportedly planning to introduce the Aktiv crossover kit. It seems to have finally made its way to the showrooms going by a media report.

The rendered images of the Tiago Aktiv in Pearlescent White and Espresso Brown surfaced online long back. They were shown at a private briefing in Tata’s very own dedicated design studio. The white and brown paint jobs brought a refreshing feel with added sporty bits found everywhere – making it a rugged hatchback rather than a crossover.
The spy pictures now showcase the kit being applied to regular orange body colour. With no dimensional changes, the customised parts are predicted to additionally charge the customers between Rs. 30,000 and Rs. 50,000 from the standard model. The accessorised elements seen are roof rails, black plastic lower bumpers with silver skid plates, new decals on the doors, scuff plate with metallic strip, graphics and much more.
It will reportedly further get sunroof, fog lamps with DRLs, alloy wheels, puddle lamp, mood lighting, door visors, etc. Other important accessories include backseat organiser, bumper corner protector, tyre repair kit, HUD with TPMS, new seat covers, mud flap and so on.
Tipped to be on a limited production run, the Maruti Celerio X rivaling Tiago Aktiv will have the same mechanicals as the regular hatchback. The 1.2-litre, three-cylinder ‘Revotron’ petrol engine develops 85 PS of maximum power output and 114 Nm of torque and the 1.1-litre, three-cylinder ‘Revotorq’ diesel engine generates 70 PS of power and 140 Nm of torque. Both powertrains will be linked with a five-speed manual gearbox. Only the petrol motor gets AMT option.
