Tata Tiago: A quick look at the facelift

Having heard the rumours and watching the spy shots for almost a year, it’s finally time to take a look at the updated Tiago. Since it is a mid-cycle facelift, Tata has not made any significant changes to the Tiago. But the minor changes do make it fresher and newer by all means.

These minor changes have also ensured the new Tiago will not be mistaken for the model it replaces. First and the most prominent change to the exterior is a new front-end, which follows the brand’s all-new IMPACT-design language.

As a result, the Tiago now gets a front-end inspired by the Altroz. The new headlamps merge beautifully into the humanity grille, giving it a neat look. The bumper is sportier too. On the side, there are no changes to report. Same goes for the rear, for the only change here is the re-profiled bumper. Sadly, though, the new Tiago misses out on projector lamps that were there in the model it replaces.

On the interior front, the Tiago now gets a new steering wheel and a new design for the fabric upholstery. The rest of the cabin remains unchanged, though. Read more below.

Specifications

While there are not many changes to the exterior, the new Tiago actually appears slightly larger than the model it replaces. In terms of dimensions, the new Tiago measures 3,765mm in length, 1,677mm in width, and 1,535mm in height. It has a respectable wheelbase of 2,400mm and a ground clearance of 170mm. The kerb weight for the base-spec XE variant is 935kg. The boot space is 242-litres, and the fuel-holding capacity is 35-litres.

Powering the facelifted Tiago is the same engine that did its duty in the older model. With the facelift, however, Tata Motors has removed the diesel engine from the Tiago. The petrol engine is now BS-VI compliant. It is the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine which is capable of producing 84bhp and 113Nm of torque. It still comes mated to a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.

Mileage

Since it does lose out on the more frugal diesel powertrain, the new Tiago’s overall efficiency is now affected too. Even still, the petrol-powered Tata Tiago is good for 23.84km/l mileage (as per ARAI), for both the gearboxes.

Features

The Tata Tiago facelift continues to be excellently equipped as was the case with the pre-facelift model. New to the Tiago’s equipment list is a fully-digital instrument cluster, a reverse-parking camera, cornering stability control, and a new steering wheel. The only grouse, those, has to be the omission of projector lamps. It still continues to feature a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, steering-mounted audio controls, auto fold wing mirrors, and climate control on the top-spec XZ+ trim. A flip key for central locking and 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels are also a part of the equipment list.

Colours

The Tiago, as of early-2020, comes in five shades, namely, Victory Yellow, Flame Red, Tectonic Blue, Pearlsent White, Daytona Grey, and Pure Silver. Sufficed to say, the Tiago looks damn good in the new Victory Yellow shade. Also, all the shades are also available in the dual-tone form, with the dual-tone specific variant.
