Tata Tiago NRG is scheduled to launch in August and has arrived at select dealerships. The crossover gets similar features to the Tiago but with certain tweaks. Let’s take a look at the facelifted Tata Tiago NRG and some of its highlights.
The NRG is a souped-up version of the regular Tiago. It gets some cosmetic enhancements, namely, black body cladding, silver faux front and rear skid plates, 15-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, gloss black element connecting the tail lamps, boot integrated spoiler and blacked-out ORVMs, C-pillar and roof.
Interior and Features
The NRG will feature an all-black cabin to maintain the sporty appeal. It will include, fabric upholstery, rear parcel tray, all-black cabin layout, digital instrument cluster with a 2.5-inch multi- information display and piano black accents on steering wheel and AC vents.
The feature list on the NRG is more or less similar to the regular Tiago. The list includes, push button- start, keyless entry, electrically foldable ORVMS, cooled glovebox, 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering mounted audio controls and height adjustable driver seat.
Compared to the standard hatch, the facelifted Tiago NRG is longer, taller, and has a higher ground clearance, thanks to the front and rear skid plates and roof rails.

Tata Tiago and the NRG share the same powertrain. Tata Tiago NRG comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine which produces 85 bhp and 114 nm of torque. It offers satisfactory performance and is a reliable city commuter and an occasional highway cruiser.
Tata has done a great job in equipping the NRG with necessary safety features. The list includes, ABS with EBD, dual-airbags, rear parking camera with sensors, corner stability control, rear defogger and front seatbelts with pretensioners and force limiters.
Unlike the standard Tiago, its crossover version doesn’t feature auto AC and electrically adjustable ORVMs. However, the Tiago NRG comes with a push-button start/stop, which is missing in the standard hatch. The facelifted Tiago NRG is expected to command Rs 30,000 over the standard model, which is priced between Rs 4.99 lakh and Rs 6.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The Tiago NRG’s only direct rival will be the Maruti Celerio X.
