Tata Tiago NRG spied totally undisguised ahead of tomorrow's launch

Ahead of its launch tomorrow, an IAB viewer has shared a set of images showing the Tata Tiago NRG (Energy) in full glory.

Thanks to the body armour, the Tata Tiago NRG seems dimensionally larger than regular variants on the spec sheet. It will also offer 10 mm extra ground clearance

The NRG is essentially a crossover-styled variant of Tata's best selling car which has averaged a monthly sale of 7,974 units (March 2018 to August 2018) putting it on the top 10 best sellers in India consistently. The top-end variant should help the manufacturer boost sales and margins of its most popular vehicle.

Akin to every other hatchback-based crossover on sale in the country, the Tata Tiago NRG sports a black plastic cladding in lower section of its exterior. The bumpers get a faux skid plate and have a dual-tone look owing to the black trim. The chrome applique accompanying the grille has been replaced with a black highlight.

The B- and the C-pillar get black plastic cladding. There's some plastic enrichment to the tailgate, too. The roof and the ORVMs have been painted black to complement the dual-tone look.

Black roof rails and a roof-mounted spoiler round off the exterior updates. The Tata Tiago NRG has a ground clearance of 180 mm, which is 10 mm more than that of standard variants.

A grey coloured upholstery will characterise the interior of the new model with contrast orange stitching. The dashboard features silver and orange trim. Feature highlights include a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with 3D navigation, 8-speaker Harman audio system, 6-way adjustable driver's seat, and a cooled glovebox.

The Tata Tiago NRG is likely to cost INR 50,000 higher than the XZ trim.
