Scheduled to be launched soon in March, the recently renamed Tiago hatchback will join Nano as the only other product to be rolled out of production lines from Sanand plant. ET Auto reports that 1,800 units have already been manufactured in the span of last two months.
It is yet to be known whether Gujarat government will offer the incentives for all models to be produced from Sanand as similar to the Nano but the discussions are still taking place. Built on a new platform, the Tiago will be powered by an all-new DOHC aluminium Revotorq 1.05-litre diesel and a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine.
The petrol mill develops 83.8bhp and the diesel unit pumps out 69 bhp. It measures 3,746 mm long, 1,647 mm wide, 1,535 mm high and comes with a wheelbase of 2,400 mm and 170 mm ground clearance.
Weighing at just over a tonne, the Tiago hatchback sits on 14-inch alloy wheels and features independent front suspension with McPherson struts and coil springs. The rear has semi-independent suspension with twist beam.
Styled with Tata Motors’ brand new design philosophy, the Tiago will have the Indian company’s ConnectNext infotainment system with eight speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, multi-spoke steering wheel with mounted controls for audio and phone functions, smartphone-based navigation for Android only, etc.
On the safety front, the Tiago will be installed with ABS(Anti lock braking system) and EBD (Electronic Brake force distribution), driver and front passenger airbags, engine immobiliser, speed-sensing auto door locks and corner stability control system and much more.
