Take a look at this sofa, which looks like the Tata Tiago. It is made by using original Tiago parts. Read more about it here.
Tata Tiago is the highest-selling car of the indigenous brand in the country. It topped the carmaker’s sales chart for September 2020 with a sale of 6080 units. A big reason for its high sales figures is its 4-star crash test rating. Owners of the Tiago can be seen sharing post-accident pictures of the car. However, a Tiago fan from Pune - Pranay Lingayat, took his love to another level as he made a sofa out of its parts. We came across the pictures of this sofa via a social media platform. It can be seen in the images that this sofa is made using the bumper and headlamps of the Tiago.
The bumper is fixed on the front portion of the sofa, whereas the headlamps are placed in their respective positions as on the actual car. Also, the headlamps are functional here. Interestingly, the designer has not used the OEM radiator grille or the lower air-dam on the bumper. It gets custom-made air-dam and radiator grille, instead. Furthermore, it gets stickers that mimic the fog lamps.
As revealed by the designer, he was able to make this Tiago-like sofa in under Rs. 10,000. He claims that his nearest Tata Motors service centre provided him with the Tiago’s front bumper for free. He adds that the total cost (including the price the parts), would come up to Rs 30,000 (approximately). Also, one should note that the headlamps and the bumper come from the pre-facelift version of the Tiago.
In the facelifted avatar, Tiago is powered by a 1.2L 3-pot petrol motor that is capable of putting out a rated power output of 83 PS and max torque of 113 Nm. There are two gearbox options on offer – 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT. Talking of the safety equipment, Tiago gets dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, roll-over mitigation, ABS with EBD, seat belt alarm, high-speed alerts, and seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters as standard fitment across the range. Tiago starts at Rs. 4.69 lakh and goes up to Rs. 6.73 lakh.
