2021 Tata Tiago NRG To Launch On August 4
Tata Motors is planning to expand the Tiago lineup with a new model. The Tata Tiago NRG will make a comeback in the facelifted incarnation of the hatchback, with a launch date set for the first week of August.
The 2021 Tata Tiago NRG was a “rugged looking” option to the normal Tiago lineup that was available alongside the pre-facelifted hatchback from 2018 and 2020. To give it a classic crossover look, it came with false body cladding all around. The Tiago NRG model was eliminated from the lineup when Tata Motors announced the Tiago facelift in early 2020.
The facelifted Tiago’s sharper grille and headlamp design will be carried over to the new Tiago NRG. Like its predecessor, the cross-hatch will have reworked front and rear bumpers with faux skid plates and cladding all around. Forest Green, Snow White, Cloudy Grey, and Fire Red are the four color options for the Tata Tiago NRG.
The 2021 Tata Tiago NRG will be marketed as a single fully-loaded grade with all of the hatchback’s amenities. A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, automatic climate control, Harman sound system, steering-mounted controls, power windows, and remote locking, power-folding wing mirrors, height-adjustable driver’s seat, and more are among the features. Dual airbags, ABS, a day-night rearview mirror, rear parking sensors, and other safety features will be included in the safety package.
Mechanically, the 2021 Tata Tiago NRG will be identical to the ordinary Tiago. That means the same 1.2-liter, three-cylinder, normally aspirated petrol engine with 86hp and 113Nm of torque will power it. We can confirm that the Tiago NRG will be available with a manual or automatic transmission.
The Tiago’s top-spec XZ Plus trim presently costs between Rs 6.33 and Rs 6.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The NRG trims are expected to cost between Rs 20,000 and Rs 30,000 more than the base XZ Plus trim. The Tata Tiago is up against the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Wagon R, Hyundai Santro, and Datsun Go in terms of competitiveness. The Tiago NRG will have no direct competition in the market now that the Celerio X has been canceled.
