Tata Motors is prepping a mid-cycle update for the Tiago. The facelifted Tiago was spotted during road-tests in Ladakh along with the upcoming Altroz.
The Tiago (facelift) units spotted till date were deprived of the production-ready headlamps, and the new grille. The latest spy shots give a clearer look at the vehicle's face which appears to be very close to the production-spec avatar. In details, the most significant change the Tiago has received is in terms of its updated front grille which comprises horizontal slat design elements replacing the earlier honeychomb mesh grille pattern. The updated grille gels in with the sharper headlamps which have grown sleeker and more modern. It also gets an updated front bumper which was seen covered in camouflage. It features revised fog lamp housing along with the new design.
The overall profile of the Tiago (facelift) remains unaltered. While at the back, slightly revised detailing in the tail lamp could be noticed. On the inside, the car is expected to receive a revised seat upholstery and trim, and improved infotainment system. Only recently, the current pre-facelift Tiago was updated with fully digital instrument cluster and the same is expected to make way in the facelift model. Apart from this, it is also expected to carry over other features like an 8-speaker Harman sound system, climate control, steering mounted controls, multi-info display as well as projector headlamps.
The 2020 Tata Tiago (facelift) will feature the current model's 1.2-litre Revotron naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine, albeit, it will be updated to meet the BS-VI emission standards. The current, BS-IV version produces 85 PS of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 114 Nm at 3,500 rpm. This engine will be offered with a 5-speed manual and AMT. Meanwhile, the current 1.05-litre diesel engine is expected to be taken off the charts due to high upgradation costs involved.
Expect the facelifted Tata Tiago to be launched in India by end-2019. In terms of pricing it will cost slightly higher than the pre-facelift model which retails in the range of INR 4.39 to 6.36 lakh (Petrol, Ex-showroom, Delhi)
It looks horns with Maruti Suzuki Wagon R and Hyundai Santro.
