Previously taken spy images have revealed that the front and rear bumpers will be re-profiled, while the internals of the taillights is likely to be updated as well.

Other standard safety features will include front seat belts reminder and speed alert system. The car will be compliant with the upcoming safety norms that come into effect from 1 October 2019.

The new Tiago will continue with the 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol motor that churns out 84 bhp of power and 114 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or an AMT. With the BS-VI guidelines set to arrive from 1 April 2020, Tata Motors could discontinue the 1.05-litre diesel motor altogether. After all, updating a diesel motor to BS-VI compliance involves higher costs.
