Tata Tiago JTP - the performance-oriented version of the Tata Tiago - is just recently launched. Let's see the main differences between the normal Tiago and the JTP version.
Tata Motors has just introduced the latest version of the ongoing Tata Tiago – the Tata Tiago JTP. It is a performance version of the normal Tiago, which means the new model will engage with more excitement in its driving nature. What does it mean in the real-life realization? On the following part, IndianAuto will explain the difference between the Tiago and Tiago JTP.
1. Tata Tiago Vs Tiago JTP Price
Firstly, the Tata Tiago with interior updates and exterior will be priced higher than the ongoing version of the Tiago. It is rated at Rs 6.39 lakh, which is about 1.18 lakh higher than the top-end petrol version of the Tiago. The bonus price will give you an outstanding look and sports car-like experience. So the price hike doesn’t seem to be a lost here.

2. Tata Tiago Vs Tiago JTP Variant
IF the Tiago is available in five variants which are XB, XE, XM and XT, the JTP version only comes with one single variant.
3. Tata Tiago Vs Tiago JTP Dimension
In terms of dimension, the Tiago JTP will bring out almost the same dimension. Both measures at 3746mm in length and 1647mm in width. However, the JTP, to fit with the performance title, will stand at a lower height. At 166mm, the ground clearance will also be 4mm lower.
4. Tata Tiago Vs Tiago JTP Look
As promised, the JTP version of the Tata Tiago will look definitely sporty. To give the JTP the desirable sportiness, it is packed with many features that remind you of the race cars.
The exterior of the Tiago is revised to add more sportiness into the JTP gene:
New 15 alloy wheels
Dual barrel projector headlamp
Contrasting ORVM and blackout roofline
Front fender on the bonnet as well as on the rear end
Blackout rear spoiler
The new Tiago JTP gets a revised fascia with new bumper and headlight
What’s more, to differentiate from the normal Tiago, Tiago JTP will also get the JTP badge on the front grille.
You will not only notice the twists and tweaks outside but when stepping into its cabin, the changes are even more noticeable.
For this version, the cabin will be given the all-black colour scheme. Along with the red accent inserted throughout the interior space, for example, in the air vents, the seat fabric and the centre console, the liveliness of the cabin will be the highlight. The JTP badge will be proudly stitched on the seat fabric and on the steering cover.

5. Tata Tiago Vs Tiago JTP Engine
On the Tata Tiago, it will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that could make 85PS peak power along with 114Nm of torque. This unit is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
But for the Tiago JTP, it will get a turbocharged 1.2-litre engine. This unit is able to produce 114PS and 150Nm, which is significantly higher than the Tiago. This is the same engine that powered the Nexon but tuned for better power output. The transmission option remains to be the same 5-speed manual gearbox. But let’s say this unit will be optimized for better manner.
