Tata Motors is a well-known name in the Indian Automotive Industry. With models such as the Indica, Nano, Bolt, Sumo, and more, the car manufacturer has a great fan following in the country. Those who are ardent followers of the auto giant would also be aware of BP Auto Spares India, a leading dealer of Tata Spare Parts.
There are a host of models that are lined up for launch in the next two years. However, the car maker is most excited about two upcoming models – the Kite and the Tiago Sport.
We take a sneak peek at these two cars.
Kite : The Budgeted Sedan
Launched at the Delhi Expo in February 2016, this coupe is designed especially for the budget conscious Indian. Based on the Tiago platform, this sub-4 meter car is expected to be rolled out during the last quarter of the year. The coupe will give strong competition to the existing sedans, including Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Figo Aspire, Honda Amaze, and more.
The vehicle would come with two engine options – a 1.2-litre Revotron Petrol and a 1.05 Revotorq Diesel mill. While the petrol version would produce 83.8 bhp @ 6,000 rpm, the diesel one would muster 69.04 bhp @ 4,000 rpm. The former would produce 114Nm @ 3,500rpm of torque and give a mileage of 20 kmpl and the latter would produce 140Nm @ 1,800rpm – 3,000 rpm and yield a mileage of 25 kmpl.
Tiago Sport: The Aggressive Hatchback
The Tiago Sport is said to be outfitted with a turbocharged version of 1.2, three-cylinder motor. It will render a power output of more than 120hp. Featuring an aggressive appearance, this car will bring on board lowered suspension, stiffer damping, all black or dual tone interior scheme, rear spoiler, and a variety of robust Tata parts. On the performance front, it is said to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/hour in just 8 seconds. Once launched, it will compete with the likes of Punto Abarth and upcoming Baleno RS. It is expected to hit the Indian roads by early 2017.
With such wonderful cars in the pipeline, Tata is gearing up to create ripples in the market. Here’s an insight on The Magnificent Range of SUVs from the House of Tata Motors.
