Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Tata Motors has announced that the Tata Zica will be rechristened as the Tata Tiago. Three names were shortlisted (Tiago, Adore and Civet) and was left to the public to vote for their favorite name.

The hassle of changing the name from Zica came about when Tata Motors realized that it rhymed with the deadly Zika virus. As a result, the launch of the Tata Zica did not take place as expected at the Auto Expo 2016. The company has confirmed that the Tata Tiago will go on sale by the end of March 2016.

The Tata Tiago measures 3,746 mm, 1,647 mm and 1,535 mm in length, width and height respectively, and its wheelbase is 2,400 mm long. Some of the exterior features include wide radiator grille flanked by bug-eyed headlamps, ORVM-mounted LED turn indicators, 14-inch twin five-spoke alloys, wraparound taillamps and a roof spoiler.
