Tata Tiago Tests Build Quality of a Hydra Crane
This video highlights a crash of the hatchback with the massive crane somewhere in Chhatisgarh. As seen in the clip, the driver of the hydra crane had to apply brakes suddenly. This resulted in the driver of the Tiago having no time to react quickly enough. The Tiago crashed into the back of the crane. The airbags were deployed which means that the speed was not too low. However, all the passengers in the car were safe. Moreover, the bumper of the crane suffered a significant dent. The grille area of the Tiago has also been deformed a little. But everyone there was impressed by the strength of the Tiago. This incident reflects the relevance of having a safe car with a high safety rating. One should invest in a car with high safety features. This is the best way to ensure that you and your loved ones get the best chance of survival in unfortunate events on the roads.
Tata Tiago comes with a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engine making 86 hp and 113 Nm. This engine comes with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT transmission. The Tiago ranges between Rs 4.99 lakh and Rs 7.07 lakh, ex-showroom. The direct rivals include the mighty Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios. The 4-star safety rating of the Tiago is a segment-first and therefore, a great reason to pick up one. That has been among the major factors of its appeal among modern buyers.
