Tata Motors much anticipated hatchback, Tata Tiago has yet another delay in its launch, with media reports stating that the car will now come sometime in April and not on March 28, as earlier reported. Reasons for the delay is not yet known.
It recently made headlines at the Auto Expo and soon after, Tata declared that the car will be called ‘Tiago’. Since then, it has been spotted at dealerships, suggesting that the deliveries might start soon after the launch. Bookings for the automobile also started on March 10, for a token amount of Rs. 10,000. The car also made an appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show where it was showcased in certain styling tweaks.
It may be recalled that Tiago is the new name for the erstwhile ‘Zica’. As Zika virus became an international emergency, the company announced that to empathise with the victims of the virus, will rename the new hatchback from its stable.
As we mentioned earlier, the Tiago should be priced between Rs 3.5-5 lakh for the petrol versions and Rs 4-5.5 lakh for the diesel variants. The Tiago will face still competition by some of the most established players in the Indian automotive scene although we think the added benefit of space, driving dynamics, plastic quality and good looks should give the Tiago an edge.
