This Tata Tiago met with an accident and rolled over before coming to a stop. Fortunately, all the occupants walked out of it safely.
Tata Tiago is the smallest offering in the indigenous carmaker’s stable. It received a mid-cycle update earlier this year in January. With updated styling and improved feature list, the Tiago has surely gained some momentum on the sales tally. It indeed is the highest-selling car in Tata Motors’ lineup. However, the selling point of the Tiago is its 4-star Global-NCAP crash test rating. The Tiago is often praised by its customers for keeping them safe during the accidents. Recently, we came across a set of pictures of totalled Tiago, which were shared by Satya Mania, who also happens to be the owner of this car. He shared the images with a caption, “I am alive for this post.”
In the images, it can be seen this Tiago is completely destroyed. It has suffered a lot of damages on parts like bonnet, bumpers, doors, fenders, roof, and chassis. Fortunately, the driver and passengers walked out of it with no injuries, whatsoever. While the owner has not mentioned the cause of this incident, but it can be assumed this Tiago has rolled over a few times before coming to a stop.
Aiding the Tiago with 4-star crash-test rating is a set of safety equipment, which are offered as standard fitment across the range. The list includes dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, seat belt alarm, rear parking sensors, high-speed alerts, and more.
Powering the Tiago is a 1.2L 3-pot petrol motor, which belts out a peak power output of 86 PS and max torque of 113 Nm. The gearbox options on the Tiago include a 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT. In the pre-facelift avatar, Tiago was offered with a 1.0L oil burner as well. However, test mules of the Tiago with the diesel engine were recently spotted on the test, and it is likely to hit the showroom floors by sometime next year. Prices of Tiago start at Rs. 4.70 lakh and top out at Rs. 6.74 lakh. Talking of its rival, it competes with the likes of Maruti WagonR, Hyundai Santro and more.
