Tata Motors planned on introducing several new and interesting products in the Indian market during 2016. As of now, only the Tiago hatchback from Tata Motors has been introduced in the country. The Kite 5 compact sedan was expected to make its Indian debut some time ago.
The Kite 5 India launch by Tata Motors is most likely pushed further back to 2017. Tata showcased its all-new Kite 5 compact sedan at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi, which garnered a lot of attention. The all-new compact sedan from Tata was expected to launch in India during this year itself.
In terms of design, Tata Motors used the Tiago hatchback as a base for the Kite 5 compact sedan. The rear design is unique compared to other compact sedans on offer in India. Several other similarities will also be noticed between Tata's Tiago and the Kite 5 models.
Under the hood, the Kite 5 will have similar options that power Tata Tiago. Both petrol and diesel engine options will be available with the Kite 5 compact sedan. Only a 5-speed manual transmission will be offered initially and an AMT option will be reserved for a later stage.
