Tata Tiago Features,Performance & Test Drive

Tata Tiago

Tata Tiago Overview

Tata has been offering hatchbacks in its portfolio for a very long time ranging from Nano, Indica, and Bolt but the absence of a solid and contemporary mid-sized hatch was missing. In the recent times, mid-sized hatchbacks have been garnering attention as they make up for a perfect family car. So, Tata came up with the all-new Tiago back in the year 2016 and so far it’s the company’s best bet. Tata’s Tiago is small but agile, and of course, it does tick all the boxes that make the car so competitive in the segment. With the Tiago, Tata offers a well-engineered, modern day package to the Indian customers in a compact vehicle. The car does not look anything like we have seen before; it looks fresh and appealing in terms of features and comes with refined engine options.Apply car loan for Tata Tiago.

Tata Tiago Look

When we first saw the Tiago enter the test drive venue and come to a stop in front of us, the only thing that proclaimed it to be a Tata product was the T-insignia on the front grille. Changes are indeed so IMPACT-full that the Tiago just doesn’t look like any other Tata car currently on offer. It is the first car to be launched under the manufacturer’s #MadeOfGreat Campaign, and also https://www.topspeed.in/cars/tata/ke3001.html first to be built on the all-new IMPACT design language. And if you ask us, the start just can’t get any better!

Upfront, the Tiago gets a smiling face, that houses a vertically stacked honey-comb grille, housing the new 3-D Tata emblem. Blacked-out halogen headlamps have been placed on both sides of the grille that impart an all-new character to the car. The front profile also gets circular fog lamps placed towards the lower bumper area, while the slim air-dam section has been seamlessly integrated with the bumper design. The front nose has a unique roundish touch to it while the front hood gets subtle crease lines which go well with the overall exterior design.

The side profile of the hatch gets a prominent crease line which starts from the rear taillamp area and finishes almost near the front wings. This characteristic line successfully lightens the overall visual bulk of the car’s side, thus making it look a lot more dynamic. The Tiago is actually based on the X1 platform, but the wheel arches now have lesser gaps. This makes the hatch appear even more planted and appealing. The rear profile of the car gets wrap around taillamps, a rear spoiler and rear windscreen wiper. A wide blacked-out area near the rear number plate housing again manages to decrease the car’s visual weight, while adding a pinch of ruggedness to its overall character.Check for Tata Tiago in Iiit-bh

Tata Tiago Comfort

The interiors seem to be the biggest surprise Tata has given. The cabin is not only well finished but nicely designed and spacious as well. This makes us think that Tata has really upped the game in the small hatchback class. Right from seat fabric options to the knitted roof lining, everything has been a well thought processed. The dashboard features a soft touch dual tone theme and with uniquely textured interiors and gloss black center console lends the car an upmarket feel.

In terms of feature list and equipment level, yes, Tata has given a lot in this car. The top models feature Bluetooth enabled Harman infotainment system with a USB and Aux-In slot. The music system is powered by 8-speakers and the output is amazing. And despite not a touchscreen high tech infotainment, Tata has added a wonderful feature ‘MapMyIndia’ app for displaying visuals and streaming navigation data right on the infotainment screen. The car also gets four parking sensors.

The two-pod instrument cluster with a crisp display is draped in simple brushed silver colour. The multi-information display gives info on trip distance, average fuel consumption, time and distance to empty. The center console features a pair of AC vents, music system and controls for AC. Another wonderful addition is the Juke Car App which allows simultaneous connection to 10 smartphones via WiFi hotspot. The car beside featuring a cooled glove box has a lot of storage space including 22 cubbyholes, space near the gear lever and pockets on all 4-doors. Other features include keyless entry, height adjustable driver’s seat, EPAS system and heater. Overall, this car has the right amount of features one can expect at this price point.

Tata Tiago Gearbox

Petrol

The Tiago not only brings good looks and premium interiors to the table, but it also promises a zippy ride from its newly developed Revotron 1.2 Litre petrol unit which promises to deliver around 85 PS of peak power at 6000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm. While it looks sufficiently powered on papers, real-world performance can not be termed as enthusiastic. Off-the line acceleration is a bit lethargic, but the engine comes to its own once the rpm needle climbs.

The 5-speed gearbox too is a joy to use, and has been aptly tuned to enhance driveability as well as performance. It has been placed at an ergonomic location, and thus falls to hand perfectly. Short and crisp throws ensure that enthusiastic drivers will have a grin on their face every time they slot down a gear.

What is even more interesting is the fact that the Tiago gets the segment’s first Multi drive mode, which includes City and Eco modes to ensure an improved fuel economy as well as superior and fun filled driving experience. The petrol engine promises to return an ARAI rated fuel efficiency of 23.84 kpl.

Diesel

The diesel variant on the other hand gets a Revotorq 1.05 Litre, 3 cylinder unit which is capable of delivering around 70 Ps of peak power at 4000 rpm and an impressive 139 Nm of torque at 1800-3000 rpm. This diesel mill is also equipped with a small turbocharger from Honeywell, that is tuned to enhance city driveability as well as fuel economy. In terms of real-world performance, the diesel mill too wont disappoint anyone, as it has a well-distributed spectrum of power across its rev range.

The new drivetrain comes loaded with technologies like duel overhead camshafts, central injectors and low friction crank train which helps in delivering an impressive fuel efficiency figure. Just like the petrol, the diesel unit too has been paired to a 5 speed manual gearbox. The Tiago diesel promises to return an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 27.28kpl.

Tata Tiago Riding

The suspension setup in the car does its work silently without any complaints. The car is equipped with independent suspension up front and semi-independent at the rear which takes the passengers on bad roads and highways with utmost confidence. The steering wheel of the car is also light which translates into peppy and agile driving experience. Tata’s cars are known for their absorbent ride quality and Tiago is no exception. The hatch glides over bad roads and smartly dismisses small potholes with a little thud without unsettling car’s composure. Request Test drive for Tata Tiago.

Tata Tiago Safety

The Tiago comes loaded with advanced safety features that empower you to drive confidently. It is equipped with dual front air bags, advanced ABS with EBD and Corner Stability Control, and rear parking sensors. The infotainment system?s display even offer’s a visual image off the car’s proximity to any object. The body structure of the Tiago is very strong and can absorb impact energy, thus offering superior safety.

As far as comfort and convenience is concerned, the Tiago offers unparalleled comfort with 22 intelligently designed utility spaces that take care of all your needs, height adjustable driver’s seat, the scooped out front seats provide more leg room, thus maximizing comfort and the Multi-information Display instrument cluster offers access to a host of useful information about the Tiago. It also empowers you to control a variety of in-car features.

The Tiago features an advanced ConnectNeXT Infotainment system by HARMAN. The Tiago enables you to experience Immersive Surround-sound music with 8 speakers. It also features a first-in-segment smartphone based Turn-by-Turn navigation app (available only to Android users.) But the NVH is poorly built, rear headroom is tight and Tata’s service quality is also not up to the mark.

Tata Tiago Bottomline

The Tata Tiago is positioned in between their entry level hatchback Nano and the Bolt and this is quite aggressively priced as well. The Tiago is also backed by city friendly as well as fuel efficient drivetrains but what sets it apart from the rest is the fact that it gets a newly designed exterior, newer platform for better handling, and spacious interior and offcourse a diesel engine option under its hood along with the petrol engine option as well.

The Tata Tiago may not be an exceptional looking hatchback but it surely has enough juice to keep those customers happy who are searching for an alternative other than the Celerio or the i10.

In our opinion, the Tiago makes perfect sense for anyone and everyone entering this segment. The only factor that might stop people from deciding on the Tiago is the word that precedes its moniker – Tata. We just hope Tata Motors provides satisfactory after sales support from now, in order to break away with the perception of it being a poor-quality brand.
