Expected to launch in November.
A YouTube channel called Techbuzz has posted a video of a pre-production Tata KITE 5 sedan testing in Pune, ahead of its expected launch in November.
The Tata KITE 5 (codename) is Tata’s third sub-4m sedan, measuring 3,995 mm in length, 1,647 mm in width, 1,535 mm in height and 2,450 mm in wheelbase. Top-end grades will ride on 15-inch alloy wheels, while the exterior design is basically a Tata Tiago with a stubby boot.
The interior design and features will be completely sourced from the Tata Tiago, although the show car at the Auto Expo 2016 featured a 5-inch entertainment system paired to an 8-speaker audio system and GPS-guided navigation. The KITE 5 will have a class-leading boot capacity of 420 liters.
The KITE 5 will be offered with a 1.2L three cylinder Revotron engine with 83 bhp and 114 Nm of torque or 1.05L Revotorq diesel engine with 69 bhp and 140Nm of torque. It will be paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, while an AMT option could be introduced at launch.
Expected Price: INR 3.75-5.5 lakhs, ex-Showroom
Expected release date: By November 2016
