The Tata Tiago has been one of the most consistent and popular sellers from the Indian automaker. A new limited edition Tiago has just launched with new features and colours, but is it worth buying?
Tata Tiago is currently the most affordable model from the Indian automaker. Its combination of attractive pricing and feature-loaded variants make it one of the most successful Tata vehicles. In fact, it was the third highest-selling Tata last month after the new Altroz and Nexon. Though it is nearing close to half a decade since it was the first launch in the Indian market, Tata keeps updating the Tiago regularly to keep it up-to-date. It had received a mid-life refresh last January, and Tata has just launched a limited edition of the Tiago. We came across this video which suggests why you shouldn’t buy the new Tiago limited edition.
The video has been uploaded by MOTO FUEL on YouTube, and in it, we see all the changes the new Tata Tiago limited edition gets. It is based on the mid-level XT variant and comes with three new colours - Flame Red, Daytona Grey, and Pearlescent White. The limited-edition also gets 14-inch alloys finished in a shade of black, and it looks similar to the pre-facelift design. Over to the interior, there’s a new 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system which features voice-command recognition, reversing camera display and 3D navigation via Navimaps. Sadly unlike its elder sibling the Altroz, the Tiago unit loses out on Apple Carplay or Android Auto compatibility. The limited-edition also loses out on factory fitted fog lamps. If you already own a Tiago or a vehicle in the same price range, then it is not big enough of an update for you to upgrade.
That said, the Tata Tiago is one of the most feature-loaded and safest cars in its segment. It is actually the safest, scoring 4-stars in the Global NCAP crash test safety ratings. The Tiago comes with features like dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, roll-over mitigation, seat belt alarm, high-speed alert, seat belt with pre-tensioners and load limiters, reverse parking sensors, and ISOFIX child seat anchorages. Also, the range-topping trim of Tiago boasts of a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with 8-speaker HARMAN-tuned sound system.
Prices for the Tata Tiago range between Rs 4.70 lakh for the XE base trim and goes up to Rs 6.74 lakh for the XZA+ AMT range-topper. The Tiago only offers the choice of one engine currently, it is a 1.2-litre 3-pot petrol which makes 85 PS of peak power and 113 Nm of max torque. Transmission choices include a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. Do note that all prices are ex-showroom, respectively.
