The Tata Tiago is powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, BS6 petrol engine. The diesel unit was discontinued as it had very low demand in the Indian market and was also not ready for the BS6 update. However, as seen by the images captured by Rushlane, the Tata Tiago has been spied testing. We are expecting that this Tiago could feature the new BS6 diesel engine.

The Tiago gets a set of updated headlight units but misses out on the LED DRLs and projectors, which we also think could be introduced with the diesel variant. The car also gets a redesigned front bumper that features new air dams and circular fog lamps.

On the inside, the hatchback features a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a Harman audio system. Other features include an updated upholstery and body-coloured elements around the AC vents. Standard safety features on the Tiago are dual airbags, ABS, EBD, a seat-belt reminder and a high-speed alert system.

Mechanically, both the Tata Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP models were powered by a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine. The unit was tuned to produce 114bhp of power. Apart from the powerful engine, both models also received a number of design tweaks and certain other mechanical updates as well, including low profile tyres, reworked suspension setup and many others.

Thoughts About The Tata Tiago

As we said earlier, Tiago is the key contributor to the overall car sales in our country from the company's portfolio and the facelift version has got a good response. The BS6 Tiago goes up against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Hyundai Grand i10 in the Indian market.
