It has been exactly a month since the Tiago NRG was launched and going by the booking details, it would be fair to say that the Tiago NRG has lived up to the expectations. Over 3000 bookings of the cross-hatch have been made so far and TATA Motors would be hoping that the trend continues.
The NRG is a beefier version of the Tiago hatchback. It also gets new front- and rear-bumper with faux brushed-aluminium scuff plates, trim pieces on the running boards and wheel arches. Other key cosmetic updates include a black roof with similar roof rails. The wing mirrors and door handles are also black painted.
The NRG boasts of greater ground clearance than standard Tiago. It also comes equipped with 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system which also works as a reverse-camera display. The four-speaker Harman sound system on the Tigor also finds a place in the NRG.
The NRG has been launched in both diesel and petrol variant. The diesel trim carries a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit, whereas the petrol trim comes fitted with 85hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine. Both the engine options come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. There is no AMT on offer. The standard Tiago, however, does have a five-speed AMT option.
The Tiago NRG with its new design elements gets dearer by Rs 28-29,000 than the standard Tiago. The petrol trim carries an introductory price tag of Rs 5.50 lakh, while the diesel trim is be priced at Rs 6.32 lakh.
Tiago: The Star Performer
Tiago has had a good sales run in August 2018. The Indian Automaker shipped 9,277 units of the hatchback in August. Further, the top-spec XZ trim has accounted for the majority of the demands. While TATA has its Diwali dates booked for the extensively reworked JTP variant of the Tiago, it would still be hoping that the top-spec Tiago NRG would also attract equal interest.
Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors, says, ”The response to the Tiago NRG has been wonderful so far. Not even a month has passed since the launch, and we've already got more than 3,000 bookings.”
