At least 8 New Tata Cars Coming to India By 2018

Tata Motors has witnessed a decline in sales in recent years due to quality niggles and the ‘taxi market’ image. The Nano never really took off as expected and the Safari Storme failed to emulate its predecessor’s success. The Aria MPV also flopped and Indica Vista and Manza have been witnessing dwindling sales. Tata has managed to recover slightly with the Tiago but there’s still room for improvement. The manufacturer is now working on a slew of new launches including the Tiago-based compact sedan, a compact SUV and a lot more. Read on for details regarding all that upcoming Tata cars in India 2017, 2018.

Tata will not launch the Bolt Sport. Instead, it will launch a souped-up variant of the Tiago hatchback. Powering the Tata Tiago Sport will be a turbocharged 1.2-litre three cylinder engine. Max. power could be around 120 PS. We expect a price of Rs. 6-7 Lakhs. Tata Tiago Sport launch should happen by mid 2017.

2. Tata Tiago Aktiv

Tata also plans to launch the Tiago Aktiv. The Aktiv has been internally codenamed as the Tata Kite 4 and is a cross variant of the Tiago. It sports an accessory package that comprises of plastic body cladding, roof rails, sportier bumpers and some decals. The Aktiv could also get some more features. The Tiago Aktiv accessories are currently sold separately at the dealer level. However, Tata might start rolling out factory produced Tiago Aktiv variants since demand is good. Since the Aktiv will sport only cosmetic enhancements over the Tiago, it will remain mechanically unchanged.

3. Tata Nexon

Another new Tata that will be launched in 2017 is the Nexon compact SUV. With the Nexon’s design, Tata has adopted a very different approach. The Nexon’s biggest USP is its SUV-Coupe styling, which is nothing like anything we have seen in this segment so far. Even the cabin will be just as stylish. It will have features like a touchscreen audio system. Its styling will help set the Nexon apart from the current crop of compact SUVs. The Nexon will rival the Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra NuvoSport, etc. And it highly likely that people will opt for the Nexon based purely on its striking design. There have been conflicting reports regarding the Tata Nexon launch date with some reporting an early 2017 launch and other claiming it will come us only in the second half of 2017.

4. Tata Bolt Sport

Once the most interesting of all the Upcoming Tata Cars in India, the Bolt Sport might not make it to production. It features new bumpers, alloys and many sporty bits. This car has a 1.2 L Turbo Petrol engine. Tata Motors was supposed to be planning to attract the enthusiasts with the Bolt Sport. However, the Bolt has not been a very successful product. So, Tata chose not to launch the Bolt Sport.

It is expected to be launched with a refined 2.0-litre Diesel engine sourced from the FCA. The design will carry inputs from the JLR-end and the Tata Q5 could go on sale in many export markets too. We expect the unveiling to take place in 2017-end. The launch could take place at the 2018 Auto Expo.
