At the Auto Expo 2018, Tata Motors along with its just wow H5X SUV and 45X hatchback concepts, showcased the Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP models. The JTP refers to ‘Jayem Tata Performance’. Here in India, the arrival of these models are anticipated by the end of this year. To match up with their racy design cues, the hatchback and the compact sedan will be packed with a turbocharged 1.2-litre Revotron engine.

Design

At the front face of both the cars, there is blacked out honeycomb mesh front grille with JTP branding. In addition to this, smoked out projector headlamps complete the front featuring of the cars.

The air dam with a lip spoiler has been extended for more airflow to the engine. The round fog lamps which are studded in a trapezoidal setup accompanies the air dam. Moreover, the company placed vents on the hood and on the front quarter panel. Though, it is unclearly known that they are function or not.

Both the Tiago and the Tigor JTP versions move on 15-inch diamond cut alloy wheels shod up well with 185-section tyres. The ground clearance on both the models has been decreased. Now the Tigor has 161mm ground clearance as against to the 170mm of the outgoing model. Whereas, the Tiago has space between the chassis and ground 161mm instead of 165mm of the last model. Dimensionally too, the Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP are altered which has a reduced height of 33 mm and 35 mm than the standard models respectively.

Other changes on the exterior front include blacked out roof, a red and black theme on the outside rear view mirrors. The double barrel exhaust setup is not meant for a cosmetic attraction though it functions. Moreover, there is rear bumper with a diffuser along with a roof-integrated spoiler on the Tiago JTP.

Interiors

Inside the cabin, most of the equipment on both the models are similar to their respective XZ(O) variants. The 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system is once not a part of the Tigor’s cabin space. Moreover, the car flaunts bright red accents around the AC vents, instrument cluster and on the door pads. Also, there is red contrast stitching on the leather-wrapped steering wheel and the gear lever. The front seats seem much comfortable and get JTP written on them. In addition to this, to offer a sportier identity, the brand added aluminium pedals to the JTP siblings’.

Furthermore, the 8-speaker Harman infotainment audio system continues to serve on both the cars. While, the safety is the major concern of dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and corner stability control that will enhance driver’s confidence at the corners.

Engine And Specifications

Underneath the fuel tank, the Tiago and Tigor JTP are powered by the JTP 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol motor that is capable of generating 110PS of power at 5,000rpm and 150Nm of peak torque. Whereas, the transmission duties are performed by the 5-speed manual. But the automaker has done some tuning by optimizing gear ratio for an improved acceleration in the response of pedal press. The braking duties are under the consideration of disc brakes setup up front and drum brakes at the rear.

With these alterations, the Tiago JTP will pose a threat against the likes of Maruti Baleno RS and the Ford Figo S. Whereas, the Tigor JTP, will be the most powerful petrol-powered compact sedan available in the market.
