Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
To launch during the festive season.
Autocar India has managed to acquire new spyshots of the Tata Kite 5 compact sedan, featuring no camouflage of any sort. Its market launch is expected to take place during the festive season.
Unveiled at the Auto Expo in last February, the Kite 5 is Tata’s third sub-4m sedan, following the Zest and Indigo eCS. If the pricing is along the lines of its hatchback sibling – the Tata Tiago – the Tata Kite 5 will be the least expensive sedan when launched. It measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,647 mm in width, 1,535 mm in height and 2,450 mm in wheelbase.
The model photographed seems to be based on the top-end grade, as it features alloy rims, chrome details, a touchscreen infotainment system and reverse parking camera. The Kite 5 is confirmed to offer a class-leading boot capacity of 420 liters.
Engine lineup will include the all new 1.2L three cylinder Revotron engine with 83 bhp/114 Nm of torque and 1.05L Revotorq diesel engine producing 69 bhp/140Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual is the only confirmed gearbox for the Kite 5, while an AMT option is also in the cards.
