New Tata Tiago Facelift Spied! Borrows Design Cues From Altroz

Tata’s Tiago is all set to get a refresh with a new face and safety updates


  • The front-end will borrow styling bits from the bigger Altroz.
  • Will get the same mechanical bits as the current car.
  • Diesel variant likely to get axed once BSVI norms come into place.
  • JTP variants to follow suit later on.

Tata Motors has been testing the Tiago facelift for some time now and according to the latest spy shots, the hatchback seems to have gone under the Impact 2.0 design treatment. Even though the test mule that was spotted wore a basic set of headlights, the final production version of the Tiago facelift is expected to get sharper looking units with projector headlamps. You also get a more sharper looking grille that adds to the design. Tata has taken styling cues from its bigger sibling, the Altroz, which is no bad thing. Lower down on the front, the Tiago is expected to get a refreshed bumper with different fog lamp housings. The side and rear of the Tiago remain unchanged except for the tail lamps, which are expected to feature a different design.

The Tiago facelift is expected to soldier on with the current interiors. Expect the Tiago to get a few more feature additions in the kitty. Tata has already incorporated ABS on all the variants of the Tiago. From 1 July 2019, it is mandatory for all cars to come equipped with driver's airbag, reverse parking sensors and front occupants seatbelt warning as standard. We expect Tata to incorporate these features before the deadline, so it is likely that these features will make it to the facelift. Tata Motors could also strengthen the chassis to make it more safer. With the above mentioned additions and improvements, the Tiago should meet upcoming safety norms that are set to come into play from October 2019.

Speaking about the mechanical bits, the Tiago is expected to continue with the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Revotron petrol motor that produces 85PS and 114Nm of torque. Transmission options are also expected to remain the same - 5-speed MT or 5-speed AMT. As for diesel variants, the Tiago is likely to retain the 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel that produces 70PS and 140Nm of torque. While there is no confirmation yet, Tata might opt to pull the plug on the 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel once BSVI norms come into place in April 2020. Expect Tata to offer the Tiago facelift with the sportier JTP kit at a later date. The JTP variant is powered by a 1.2-litre turbo petrol that’s good for 114PS and 150Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission only.

The Tiago facelift is expected to be priced slightly higher than the current car, which is priced from Rs 4.27 lakh to Rs 6.56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). When the Tiago facelift hits the showrooms, it’ll take on the Hyundai Santro and the new Maruti Suzuki Wagon R.
