Tata Tiago now gets safer than before with added safety features. Read more!
Tata Motors recently announced that their best selling hatchback – Tata Tiago is now offered with a set of safety standard features across all variants. This is a great initiative by Tata keeping the safety of passengers in mind.
The car will now be equipped with dual airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD), rear parking sensors and corner stability control (CSC). Seat belt reminder for both the driver as well as passenger and over-speeding alert are also a part of the safety kit for the Tiago.
With effect from July 1, standard features like reverse parking sensors, driver-side airbags, ABS with EBD, over-speed alert system, central lock with manual override, seat belt reminder for both driver as well as the passenger will become mandatory for all four-wheelers from July 1, 2019. Tata has implemented the same before the deadline which is a great initiative keeping the customer’s safety in mind.
Speaking of safety, Mr SN Barman – Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Support, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit of Tata Motors expressed his thoughts and said, “There is a rising trend among car buyers of prioritising safety features while making their purchase.
We, at Tata Motors, lay immense emphasis on the presence of safety features in our vehicles. With the Tiago range getting the standard safety upgrade, we remain committed in our vision of building safe vehicles for India.
The Tiago was our first product sporting the IMPACT design language which received a brilliant response from the market and with this upgrade, I am sure the brand will stay on top of the consideration set of prospective car buyers”.
Tata Tiago was launched in 2016 and has been a tremendous success for the company. It is made available in 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine and a 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel engine. The petrol motor churns out 84bhp with 114Nm of torque.
The diesel motor produces 69bhp with 140Nm of torque. Both the engine gets mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. In addition, the petrol engine also comes with a choice of AMT transmission.
Recently, Tata Motors said that it will soon phase out the production of their smaller diesel engine cars post-BS-VI implementation. The low demand for entry and mid-size diesel models will not justify the high costs involved in developing a new small capacity engine.
However, with the diesel engine axed out, we expect Tata motors to introduce CNG variant in Tiago’s line-up which will be an alternative to the diesel. The introductory price for the Tiago starts at Rs 4.40 lakh and the top model goes up to Rs 6.62 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
