Unveiled as a near production concept at the Auto Expo 2016, the KITE 5 (codename) measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,647 mm in width, 1,535 mm in height and 2,450 mm in wheelbase. It rides on 15-inch alloy wheels and gets a 35 liter fuel tank, while the exterior design is easily summarized as a Tata Tiago with a boot.

The interior will be nearly identical to the Tata Tiago, save for 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.
