The Tata Kite 5 sedan was spied testing near Pune by IAB reader, P.K Gautam. The Tiago-based sedan is expected to launch in H1 2017, although Tata Motors is yet to confirm a launch date or month.

Tata is also yet to reveal the final specs of the Kite 5. As it's based on the Tiago hatchback, we expect the Kite 5 to come with the 1.2-litre Revotron three-cylinder petrol engine or 1.05-litre Revotorq three-cylinder engine, which will be paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. A 5-speed AMT option spotted recently in the Tiago could be available at launch.

A report from the previous month stated that the Kite 5 could be christened as the Tata Viago or Tata Altigo when it goes on sale, which rhyme with the Tata Tiago.
