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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
