The Tiago NRG is Tata’s take on the entry-level cross-hatch segment and it comes as a direct rival to the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X. Launched at an introductory price of Rs 5.49 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Tiago NRG is available in petrol and diesel variant with three colour options. Let us take a detailed look at the NRG through the launch pictures.
The NRG stands for ‘energy’. It adds body cladding to the subtle looking Tiago, while the faux skid plate and roof rails lend a rugged appearance to Tata’s baby hatch.
The headlights get a smoked effect and the NRG is available in three body colour options – Malabar Silver, Canyon Orange and Fuji White
There is a large black insert on the tailgate which houses the NRG moniker. The 14-inch alloy is new and the NRG is raised 15mm by tuning the suspension.
The length is increased to 3793mm, the width is 1665mm and the overall height is 1587mm over 3746mmx1647mmx1535mm of the standard car.
On the inside, the blacked out cabin gets an orange treatment around the AC vents, centre console, gearbox housing and on seats via patterned stitching.
The touchscreen music system makes its first appearance in the Tiago range with the NRG. Also making a debut in this range are rear parking sensors, follow-me-home headlamps, and driver seat belt reminder.
The NRG carries forward the mechanicals without any performance upgrades. So there will be both petrol and diesel engine options available.
The petrol engine is the 1.2-litre Revotron with 84bhp and 114Nm. The diesel is the 1.0-litre Revotorq putting out 69bhp and 140Nm. A five-speed manual transmission comes as standard with no automatic even as an option.
