Tata Tiago JTP – Auto Expo 2018 Live
Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Tata Motors has unveiled the Tata Tiago JTP at Auto Expo 2018. The Tata Tiago JTP is a sporty variant of the Tata Tiago.
The Tata Tiago JTP is one of the first products of JT Special Vehicles, a JV formed by Tata Motors and Jayem Automotive. It features sportier design elements all around. At the front, the car has smoked projector headlamps, gloss black honeycomb front grille with red-coloured JTP logo and gloss black frame, modified front bumper and revised lower air intake in a gloss black honeycomb structure with gloss black frame. There’s a vertical hood vent as well on the JTP variant.
On the sides, the Tata Tiago JTP gets a red JTP badge on a gloss black fender vents in a honeycomb structure on the front fender, red mirror caps, underbody skirts and 15-inch diamond-cut six-double-spoke alloy wheels wrapped with specially developed 185/60 R15 tyres. At the rear, changes include a faux diffuser, a fog lamp, red JTP badge on the tailgate, completely black roof spoiler and chrome dual tailpipes for a performance-oriented exhaust system. Up top, the JTP variant has a black roof and a smaller antenna complementing the sporty theme.
The Tata Tiago JTP has an all-black interior with red accents on the air vents. Other highlights include a leather-wrapped steering wheel with contrast red stitching, leather seat upholstery and aluminium pedals.
The Tata Tiago JTP is 3,746 mm long, 1,647 mm wide and 1,502 mm tall. It has a 2,400 mm wheelbase and a 161 mm ground clearance. The JTP variant sits 33 mm lower and offers up to 9 mm lesser ground clearance than the standard variant. Along with a differently tuned suspension setup, it benefits from a more powerful engine as well. It employs the 1.2-litre Revotron turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 110 PS at 5,000 rpm and 150 Nm of torque at 2,000-4,000 rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission with tweaked gear ratios sends power to the wheels.
Tata Motors has not announced when it plans to launch the Tata Tiago JTP.
