Jayem Tata Performance (JTP) reveals the Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP for the Indian market. Technical specifications for both cars have been revealed. The Tata Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP have been one of the most awaited launches in 2018.
It all started back in February 2018 when Tata Motors first displayed the JTP models at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo. The prospect of a Tata hatchback and notchback with high levels of performance excited Tata enthusiasts and critics alike.
The Tata Tigor JTP and Tiago JTP would be the first hot hatches entirely developed by an Indian automotive manufacturer and the very thought of it was exciting. Both cars had been spotted multiple times while being tested and now, finally, JTSV (Jayem tata Special Vehicles) has revealed the production version of both the cars.
Both the Tata Tigor JTP and Tiago JTP come with numerous upgrades over the standard cars. Just one look at both the cars and it is obvious that they are special. Up front is an extended and aggressive bumper with a large trapezoidal lower grille.
A dual-chamber projector headlamp and prominently placed JTP badging on the radiator grille along with the air scoop on the bonnet complete the changes up front. The side profile is characterised by diamond-cut black and silver 15-inch alloy wheels.
The rear view mirrors are painted in contrast to the body colour and the roof and rear spoiler comes with a glossy black finish. At the rear is a clear lens tail lamp with signature LED lighting and JTP badging with a fully-functional twin-barrel exhaust.
The Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP come with sporty black interiors with red accents. The air-conditioning vents, come with red-coloured surrounds. The black leather on the steering wheel comes with red stitching and the seats get sporty hexagonal graphics and red stitching.
The machined aluminium control pedals further add to the sporty feel of the car. The Tata Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP come equipped with a premium 8-speaker Harman music system powered by a ConnectNext head unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The biggest changes that differentiate the Tata Tigor JTP and Tiago JTP from the other Tata models have happened under the skin. Under the hood is basically the same 1.2-litre Revotron turbocharged petrol engine.
But the similarities end at the displacement. In the JTP cars, this engine produces 112bhp of maximum power and a peak torque output of 150Nm. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the gear ratios of which have been changed to offer better acceleration times. JTP claims a 0-100km/h time of just 10 seconds.
The cars also come with two driving modes - Sport and City. Tata also claims to have worked on the suspension and has tuned it for better handling, and this has resulted in the car being lowered. Ground clearance is compromised only by 4mm.
The electronic power steering system too has been recalibrated and now comes with an active return system for a better feel of the car. The tyres are also wider and stickier which according to JTP enables it to handle better and brake quicker. JTP is also claiming best-in-class braking figures.
Thoughts On Tata Tiago JTP and Tata Tigor JTP
The JTP brand has been set up to target a younger, dynamic and aspirational set of buyers, especially those who are a racer at heart. Tata Motors and Jayem Automotives have worked together to develop exciting new products that bring back the Joy of motoring to Indian customers.
