Tata Motors is becoming an epitome for safety standards in India. With every car from the carmaker ensuring comfort as well as safety, it is becoming inevitable for us to recommend you a Tata car as your next one. In this edition of ’10 Reasons Why’ we will enlist the reasons why Tata Tiago should be your first car or the next car if your budget lies between ₹5-7lakhs. Let’s get started!

  1. ABS with EBD and Cornering Stability Control (CSC)

    ABS has been made compulsory under the BNVSAP norms in India. Most of the carmakers offer ABS with EBD as standard in their cars. Tata has gone a step ahead of everyone by introducing Cornering Stability Control (CSC) right from the base variant in Tiago. This makes Tiago’s drive much better than rivals.

  2. Safest Car In The Segment (4 Stars)

    It has got driver side airbag, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors right from the base variant. These safety features already make it BNVSAP compliant. But with the addition of another airbag at the front for the passenger and Cornering Stability Control right from the base variant make this car the safest in the segment. It has scored a 4-star rating at the Global NCAP crash test rating, highest in the segment.

  3. Sporty Design (Mini Altroz)

    Right from the tri-arrow piano black front grille to the trendy boomerang-shaped tail lamps, Tata Tiago is designed to ooze out sportiness. The hood of the Tiago has been designed keeping in mind the safety of pedestrians as well ensuring that Tiago stands apart in the crowd. Sporty angular headlamps, stylish dual-tone bumper, chrome garnished front fog lamps, sporty rear spoiler and the piano black ORVMs, all add to the style quotient of Tata Tiago.

  4. Made In India (Vocal For Local)

    Tata has been in the game of making indigenous cars right from the beginning, a long time before the ‘Make In India’ and ‘Vocal for Local’ campaigns. Tiago is no exception. It has been developed and produced in-house completely. Buying a Tiago will make sure that you are vocal for local too.

  5. Next Generation of Tech Inside

    It’s not just the safety that the Tiago comes loaded with. It does have all the technology you can expect to look out for. Be it the infotainment system or the digital instrument cluster, you get it all. You will get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Support so that you remain connected!

  6. Ultimate Performance

    Tata Tiago is known to be one of the most powerful cars in the segment, all thanks to 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine that can churn out segment-best 84.8hp of power and a peak torque of 113Nm. The engine is paired to a very efficient 5-speed manual transmission. And the company also offers an advanced AMT for a clutch-free driving experience.

  7. Fuel-Efficient Engine

    Not only the engine is powerful enough, but it also offers great fuel efficiency of over 20kmpl. Its rival, Maruti Suzuki WagonR has a fuel efficiency of 20.52kmpl for the same class of the engine. Thus, it is pretty safe to say that the Tiago will offer good value to money when it comes to spending on fuel.

  8. Comfort Loaded

    There must be something that Tata Tiago lacks in! Well, there seems to be nothing at all. Tata cars initially were known to have lower levels of comfort. But with the advancement in research and development, Tata Tiago has got all the comfort, one may demand at this price point. Starting from the spacious interiors to steering mounted controls, Tata Tiago has all. It also has fully automated climate control, a very few cars in the segment offer this feature. The digital instrument cluster and the flat-bottom steering also add to the sportiness, you might be looking for in your car.

  9. Competitive Pricing

    All this safety and comfort, you might think that the Tata Tiago will cost more than its rivals. The base variant of Tata Tiago has an ex-showroom price of ₹4,60,000 whereas the WagonR will cost ₹4,45,500. Consider the extra safety you get (co-driver airbag and CSC), and this small difference will be negligible.

  10. Built upon the Legacy of Tata

    A legacy of over 75 years, ageing back before the independence of our country, Tata has been a key player in the automotive industry. Tata Motors has a legacy of its own which has been successfully carried forward in the presence of Ratan Tata. Tata Group conglomerate has a widespread network in more than 20 different fields. And being a part of this makes Tata Tiago much more worthy than its rivals for sure.

    • Hi Vishwas,
      You can go for Tata Tiago if you are a bit short on the budget as the ex-showroom price for the XZ+ variant is ₹5,99,000. If you are looking for a more premium hatchback, you should definitely go for Tata Altroz XT which has a price tag of ₹6,85,000. The XT variant comes loaded with a lot of features. As for the Tata Tigor, it is a compact sedan version of Tata Tiago and the variant you enquire is going to cost ₹6,99,000. If you are not looking for extra boot space, there is no need to buy the Tigor. So, I would suggest you go for Tiago XZ+ if the budget is a bit low and if you can spend more, definitely go for the Altroz as it is safer as compared to the Tiago. Stay tuned!

  1. Time has come now, finally TATA my favourite. I can see soon this Home made world class car manufacturer will own more than 60% share in India.
    This company is relly think about Indians. It’s car is super sturdy and robust.Love TATA.
    Though Maruti makes Good cars, but it forgetting the safety aspects. And this company is sending it’s vechile to GNCAP…what’s funny…what it thinks, Indians are fool!

    • Hi Balaram,
      It is great to see that people are starting to understand the need for safer cars in India. Tata Motors is making safety an utmost requirement in their cars thus ensuring safety of their customers. Talking about Maruti, the company does abide by BNVSAP norms. Although we all are familiar that these norms are not enough to make the cars safe.
      Stay tuned!

  2. I happened to read a couple of your analysis. It is great. Unlike others who write i order to promote a brand. It was true and appears to be honest.

  3. Hi,, your advice sounds good , I want to purchase a petrol car with SUV like touch….I have had the occasion to travel on highway twice in s month and that too about 500 Kms..but mostly drive in the city with 5-10 Kms drive perday. Please suggest ,my budget is about 8-10. Lakhs
    Ground clearance bhi chahiye.

    • Hi Kanhaiya,

      If you are looking for an SUV experience in the budget you have mentioned, I would like to suggest you go for Tata Nexon XMA variant if you are looking for an automatic or you can go for Nexon XZ if you are okay with a manual transmission. Tata Nexon has a great build quality with more than enough safety features right from the base variant and will fulfil your desire to experience an SUV. Also, Tata Nexon offers a decent fuel mileage of 17-18kmpl in city drive and 20kmpl on a highway. Stay tuned!

  4. Can agree only to the safety part…rest all are no way comparable to competitors….. Specially the engine… Seems good on paper but sucks in real life…. But speaking of the price point for base model, it’s preferable over a Suzuki…

    • Hi Sourish,
      The latest generation of Revotron engine is bliss to rev. You might have faced the said issues in the previous generation of Tiago. The BS6 compliant engines that Tata has introduced are much more reliable and efficient. Stay tuned!

  5. Hello sir..my choice is Tata Nexon, but I have to ask you to please suggest me whether I go for diesel or petrol car…my budget is up to 8 to 10 lakhs… what can you suggest me?

    • Hi Avinash,
      You can choose a petrol model if you have to drive your car locally. But if you have to travel long distances on a daily basis, the diesel variant is suggested as it offers more mileage and power. Although, the diesel variant will cost more than the petrol counterpart. Stay pinned!

    • Hi Satish,
      Tata Indica was indeed a very good car and being the first totally indigenous car that was built by Tata, Indica has a special place among the car lineage in India. Stay tuned!

    • Hi Dipti,
      As far as the Maruti Suzuki Ignis is concerned, it is a really good car with optimum features at the offer. If you want a fun city driving car with a tall boy stance, Ignis is good to go. And if you are looking for a hatchback experience, you can go for the Tata Tiago. As far as safety is concerned, Tata Tiago is much safer than the Ignis. Tiago has scored a 4-star rating at the Global NCAP crash test while Ignis has a 3-star rating. Stay tuned!

    • Hi Chandan,
      Being a new driver, you must go for Tata Tiago because of ease of driving and simpler dynamics. It has got a good engine, decent fuel mileage and optimum comfort features. And it has got a very good safety rating too.

    • Hi Nitin,

      We would suggest you go for Tiago as it is a Value For Money car. For Tigor, you’ll have to spend an extra 1 lakh for the extra boot, which is not at all worth what you will have to spend. Tata Tiago is the safest car in the segment and has got good performance as well as features. Stay tuned!

    • Hi Rajagopalan,

      You must go for the Tata Tiago if you want all the features you have mentioned above. The XZ+ variant comes equipped all the convenience and comfort features one can ask for in this budget. As for safety, all the Tata cars come equipped with more than enough safety features right from the base variant. The Tata Tiago XZ+ will fit right in your budget. Stay tuned!
