Launched first in 2016, the Tata Tiago only had a glitch with its name Zica. Due to the spread of the Zica virus during that period, its name was changed to Tiago post public voting. Based on the Horizonext philosophy, the Tiago is a product which revolutionised Tata Motors passenger car segment in the country. It broke the cliché design of Tata cars. Boasting a mass appealing design and practical cabin, the Tata hatchback gets a new set of engines and a plethora of features. The vehicle recently crossed 3 lakh units production milestone which underlines its success story.

So, what makes the Tata Tiago garner so much love in the country? Let’s delve into more details.

The 2020 update in Tiago sees a sportier design language compared to its predecessor. It gets piano black front grille flanked by protruding headlamp cluster. The dominating grille has a strong chrome strip underlining it. The redesigned bumper too gets sharper design. The cuts and creases across the body, and especially on the hood, accentuate its sporty appeal. From the sides, the 15-inch alloy wheel design looks pleasing. The prominent shoulder line gives it a character.

Move to the rear and you will get the same neat design of the original Tiago. You get the same tail lamp cluster, high-mounted stop lamp and Tata’s chrome emblem in the centre. Notable tweaks include larger lettering of T I A G O dipped in chrome under the Tata logo. No more variant badging. The rear bumper is completely redesigned and gets a moustache kinda design – leaves a masculine impression on the trailers. You get a contrasting black roof as an option with all the colour options available.

Although on paper the latest Tiago is longer and wider on papers, the wheelbase continues to remain the same. It gets similar boot space and height as well. Space was always the USP of Tata cars and it continues to be the same with the Tiago.

Interiors

The Tiago gets new flat-bottom steering with mounted controls. It gets comfortable egress and ingress thanks to the wide-opening doors. The dual-tone shade (black & grey) of upholstery with tasteful use of signature tri-arrow design on seats and headrests looks plush. The exterior body-coloured side air vents on the dash immediately catch your attention. The intelligent use of chrome and gloss black inserts is inviting.

The seats are well-bolstered and offer good support for average-sized adults. However, people with heights more than 6 foot might complain about shoulder room and under-thigh support. Tiago comes with adjustable headrests – a trait missing in its rivals. You get enough storages spaces across the Tata cabin to store your knick-knacks. Unlike its previous cars, the homegrown automaker has ensured the wiring and panels aren’t exposed. The number of adjustments available with the steering and driver’s height helps one find the right position in no time.
