2019 Tata Tiago facelift will offer additional safety equipment and minor styling updates, specifications will remain unchanged
Tata Motors has been busy with many new car launches. Recently, it introduced as many as five models within a span of 51 days, which included the Tiago NRG, Nexon Kraz edition, Tigor facelift, JTP versions of Tiago/Tigor, and the highly awaited Harrier. Now, the company is preparing to come up with the Tata Tiago facelift.
A fully camouflaged test mule of the 2019 Tata Tiago facelift was recently spotted by us. It is quite clear that the refreshed car will get new headlights and a new bumper. Similar changes are expected at the rear, while the interior could get new seat covers and additional safety equipment. The top-end version could feature new alloy wheels, while the high-end trims could be available with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2019 Tata Tiago facelift will be carrying all the safety updates that are required to meet the new regulations that come into effect in April 2019. Also, the refreshed styling and the additional features will help it face new competition from the latest generation Maruti Suzuki Wagon R.
The Tata Tiago facelift will be available with extra standard features like a standard driver-side airbag, reverse parking sensors, speed-sensing automatic door lock, high-speed warning, and seatbelt reminder for front passengers.
The specifications will remain unchanged for some more time to come. Offering BSVI-compliant engines at this stages makes no sense as they will make the Tata Tiago facelift costlier than all other rivals, which are still being sold with BSVI motors. The petrol engine of the Tiago is a 1.2-litre Revotron three-cylinder unit that produces a maximum power of 85 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 114 Nm at 3,500 rpm. It comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission or an AMT.
The diesel engine option comes in the form of a 1.05-litre Revotorq three-cylinder motor that produces a maximum power of 70 PS and a peak torque of 140 Nm. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It has an ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 27.28 kmpl, while the petrol engine returns 23.84 kmpl.
