Five Unique Features Drives Tata Motors Hatchback - Tiago in India
By Manu Sharma
With the launch of the Tiago, Tata Motors has moved away from the old Indica design theme to something more functional. It has incorporated some dynamic features usually associated with high-end vehicles. Some of these features include: Multi-drive mode; Advanced Engine Management System (EMS); Advanced 9th Generation ABS and Corner Stability Control; Rear Parking Sensors and Harman Infotainment System among others.
Tata Motors has announced the commercial launch of its cool new hatchback, the TIAGO in Bangalore on April 18, 2016. It comes with cutting edge design, technology and driving dynamics to create new segment benchmarks in the industry. Some of the unique features include:
Design and Interiors: With inputs from the Pune, UK and Italy design studios, the TIAGO’s appealing exterior design has a dynamic silhouette to emphasize the compact look and sharp design. The new 3-dimensional ‘T’ Logo is placed in a semi vertical position on the signature hexagon grill, giving it a bold, expressive face with a confident, agile stance. TIAGO’s interiors have been crafted with utmost precision for a premium feel. The geometric texture accented with chrome handles, knitted fabrics, colour harmony, layered design theme with a dual tone interior, customisable air vents, premium graphics on the fabric and body hugging seat bolsters all give it an upmarket, inviting feel.
Multi Drive Mode: The stylish design is complemented by enhanced performance and driving dynamics. The TIAGO will be available in petrol and diesel variants with two new engines - Revotron 1.2L (petrol engine) and Revotorq 1.05L (diesel engine). These have been indigenously developed by the company and globally benchmarked for a refined road performance. Both these engines have been designed and programmed to deliver superior fuel economy and a peppy driving experience with a segment-first feature, the Multi-drive mode – City and Eco – making it equivalent to offering two engines in one.
Safety and Other Features: The two drive modes are supported by an advanced Engine Management System (EMS). Tiago’s many safety features include dual front airbags, advance 9th generation ABS with EBD and corner stability control, rear parking sensors with display on infotainment screen and energy absorbing body structure for superior safety.
Infotainment: Recognising the dynamic consumer world with increasing need for connectivity, TIAGO comes equipped with an infotainment system designed exclusively by Harman. The car comes with new segment-first applications like the Turn-by-Turn Navi app and the Juke-Car app.
Pricing: At a starting price of Rs 3.32 Lakhs, ex-showroom, Bangalore, for the Revotron 1.2L (petrol) variants to Rs 4.89 lakh and Rs 4.08 Lakhs to Rs 5.69 lakh, ex-showroom, Bangalore, for the Revotorq 1.05L (diesel) variants, the TIAGO will be available for sale, across the country in over 597 Tata Motors sales outlets, from April 18, 2016.
Customer Services: Tata Motors will also take its customer service engagements to the next level with the launch of Tata Motors/Service Connect, a new customer application for TIAGO customers, to make the post-purchase experience easy and stay connected with them at all times for a hassle-free service experience. Besides providing free pick-up and drop service, Tata Motors Service will also offer loaner cars for repair services if it requires the car to be at workshop overnight.
Variants and Colours: Available in 5 dynamic variants – XB, XE, XM, XT and XZ with optional variants in XE, XM and XT and comes in six exciting colour options - Striker Blue, Berry Red, Sunburst Orange, Espresso Brown, Pearlescent White and Platinum Silver.
Warranty: The car will come with a warranty of 2 Years / 75,000 KM (whichever is earlier) with an extended warranty option of 2 years + 1 year (3rd year extended warranty up to 75,000km) or 2 years + 2 years (3rd and 4th year extended warranty up to 1,00,000 kms).
