Tata Kite 5 compact sedan spied in Tamil Nadu
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.
New spyshots of the Tata Kite 5 compact sedan has surfaced from a town in Tamil Nadu, courtesy of Thrust Zone. The sub-4m sedan is expected to launch during the Dussehra-Diwali period (September-November period).
If the final pricing of the Kite 5 sedan is closer to its hatchback sibling, the Tata Tiago, the Kite 5 could be the least expensive sedan in India. Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2016, the exterior borrows the front-end of the Tiago, while the rear features a stubby boot, wraparound taillamps and LED brake light.
Inside, the Kite 5 features a design nearly identical to the Tiago, although top-end variants have been spotted featuring a Harman 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 and 1.05L Revotorq diesel engine sourced from the Tiago. While a 5-speed manual will be fitted as standard, the report states that an AMT option for both the Kite 5 and Tiago will be introduced when the former goes on sale.
