Tata Tiago Sport – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Reported to launch in November.
Although Tata had confirmed that the Bolt Sport would go on sale this year, weak sales of the regular Bolt has forced Tata to shelve plans for its launch, reportedly. Instead, Tata will launch a sportier version of the Tata Tiago, which could introduce hot hatch performance at a competitive price.
Reports suggest that the company will fit a turbocharger to the 1.2L three-cylinder Revtron petrol engine in the Tiago, which is expected to bump the output to around 120 PS. It will be paired to a manual gearbox that sends power to the front wheels.
As seen in the rendering, the Tiago Sport could feature a sportier bodykit, different alloy rims and a larger exhaust pipe, while the suspension is likely to be lowered and stiffened for better handling characteristics.
