2. Tata Tiago 360 View: Exterior Review

In its 2020 images, it is no doubts that Tata Tiago takes a stylish design that is in line with new-age Tata cars, especially reminding us of the Tata Altroz. 

Front view

At the front, the all-new Tata Tiago looks much like its premium sibling, Tata Altroz which just came to us some months back. The bonnet of the new Tiago has been raised compared to the outgoing model while the bumper has been considerably revised, not only for a better cosmetic appeal but also making it compliant with the stringent pedestrian protection norms. The 2020 Tiago looks ways sharper and more mature than the previous model with its pointed nose look. The piano black grille now features tri-arrow patterns, enhancing the car's attractiveness.

The side profile highlights the good-looking and sporty stance of the hatchback. The new diamond-cut alloy wheels perfectly fill out the arches, which is a great improvement compared with the previous Tiago, which look as if they are standing on their toes. Other components like the bold waistline, window upward sweep and chunky C-pillar are harmonious with the modern trends.


2020 Tata Tiago features a new rear bumper that looks a bid bolder than that of the preceding version. The hatchback car looks neat with new taillights, an elegantly sculpted tailgate along with roof-mounted spoiler placed on the rear windscreen.

4. Tata Tiago Design: Interior Review

The well-designed and spacious interior of the Tata Tiago is the major highlight of the hatchback. The home-grown automaker has paid great attention to the passenger's comfort by making the Tiago's cabin loaded to the gills with features.

Seating capacity

The Tata Tiago can accommodate up to five people. The front seats with small footwell and low headroom could be a little bit uncomfortable for tall people. But the driver seat could provide healthy driving position and function well with adjustable seat and headrests. However, the back seats will be somehow cramped to hold three adults.

Tata Tiago offers quite a smart cabin that can house 5 adults comfortably on the go.

The boot of Tata Tiago is 242-litres, which is pretty large but not as spacious as Grand i10 Nios which owns a 260-litre boot lid. You can make more space for stuff by adjusting the back seats.

Safety and Security Features

The Tata Tiago is equipped with a wide range of safety and security features including dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and CSC, over-speed alert, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminder, seatbelt with pretensioner and load limiters, rear parking sensors, rear parking camera, engine immobiliser, follow-me-home lamps, auto door locks, day & night IRVM. These features help ensure a safe and secure journey for both the driver and the passengers.

Comfort Features

Black and grey are the theme colours, a little different from the traditional beige that Tata usually put on their interior. The material of the dash has decent quality and sleek looks, adding to the general eye-pleasing design. AC vents from two sides of the cars resonate with the outer colours. The driver could easily control the audio, phone system with control buttons attaching to the wheel. Through the tilt-adjustment wheels, you can read the needed information about distance, fuel consumption and time from two pods and a multi-information display.

Tata Tiago is equipped with a long list of features to increase its comfort quotient.

The cabin is also storage-friendly with various places for you to stack stuff, for example, the storages on car doors or around the gear. And don’t forget the glove box with cooling vent, where you could keep cold drink.

Generally, in comparison with the Tata Tiago's rivals, the interior of the hatchback is very well-built with amazing features for a car of this segment.

5. Tata Tiago Performance: Engine Review

Unlike the outgoing model, the 2020 TataTiago doesn't feature a diesel engine under its bonnet any more. Since upgrading the Tiago diesel to the BSVI norms will jack up the cost of the hatchback considerably, Tata chose to keep the petrol lineup of the Tiago alive only.
