Tata Tiago NRG facelift spied on test

-BS6 1.2-litre petrol engine 

-Rival for the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X

An updated version of the Tata Tiago NRG has been spotted testing ahead of a possible launch later this year. First launched in 2018, the Tiago NRG is an SUV-like version of the Tiago hatchback, courtesy of a body kit, wheels, and NRG stickers. The interior too will be standard Tiago fare but with NRG motifs in various places. 

The test vehicle of the updated BS6 compliant Tiago NRG was spotted sporting camouflage on the front and rear, and we believe that it will have the same appearance as the current Tiago which was launched in January this year. It’s expected to be offered with Tata’s 1.2-litre petrol engine that can be had with a five-speed manual or a five-speed automated manual.

The Tiago NRG is a rival for the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X that follows the same principal both in terms of appearance and engine options.

Tata Motors, along with its dealer partners in Mumbai and Thane, has introduced a range of schemes and offers.

These offers include long tenure loans, financing, EMIs, and special offers for frontline workers across healthcare, public and essential services. 

Tata Motors has introduced various schemes where buyers can choose from multiple finance options and pay EMIs starting at Rs 899 per month per lakh. In each of these schemes, the consumer would be able to pay a lower EMI initially, which would subsequently increase during the tenure. Additionally, through its tie-ups with various financers, Tata Motors is also offering schemes with a maximum tenure of up to 96 months, available on select products. The brand recently introduced a range of health and hygiene accessories, details of which are available here.

The company is also offering a step-up EMI scheme from Tata Motors Finance (TMF), valid on the Tiago and Tigor. Customers can buy the aforementioned models with EMIs starting at Rs 1,000 per month per lakh for the first six months, gradually increasing over a maximum tenure of five years. As an additional benefit, consumers can choose from two options while paying their final EMI. The first option is to pay the last bullet EMI in full (approximately Rs 90,000 on a loan of Rs 5 lakh) and take full ownership of the vehicle while the second option is to refinance the final EMI again from TMF. Tata Motors is also offering benefits of up to 70,000 on purchase of its model range.

Speaking on the occasion, Ravi Misra, Zonal Manager, West, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, “At Tata Motors, we manufacture cars that are proudly Indian with international quality, design and safety.

Tata Motors launches initiative for new car sanitisation

– All new cars will be delivered under the ‘Sanitised by Tata Motors’ initiative

– The dealerships have also taken steps to reduce physical contact during test drives

Tata Motors has launched a new initiative, christened ‘Sanitised by Tata Motors’. The initiative aims to deliver a fully sanitised new vehicle from the brand’s dealerships to customers. Specially designed labels confirming ‘Sanitised by Tata Motors’ will be pasted on the vehicle post sanitisation, and the vehicle will remain untouched by the dealership teams till it is delivered to the customer. The vehicle key will be handed over to the customer in a sanitised box, designed to avoid any direct contact of the dealer staff.

Tata Tiago Front Door Handle

At all dealerships, discussions with customers are being undertaken virtually, using digital tools and any meetings, if necessary, are being conducted with prior appointments and post verification of all requirements. Documents for vehicle insurance and registration are being collected via mail or specially installed drop boxes and vehicle deliveries are being done only after all formalities are completed.

Tata Tiago Front view

Test drives are being offered on-demand at the customer’s preferred location. As a practice, only one person drives the vehicle with a dealer staff member sitting in the rear seat to avoid any physical contact.  Following every test drive, the vehicle is sanitised, a process that also includes replacing protective covers shielding the interiors of the vehicle that come in contact while driving.

Speaking about the initiative, Vivek Srivatsa, Head Marketing, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit (PVBU), Tata Motors, said, “At Tata Motors, safety is the top priority for us, our customers as well as our dealers at all times. Accordingly, we have taken utmost care at all dealerships and service centres to maintain requisite social distancing, minimise physical contact with the vehicles and enhance the levels of sanitisation and hygiene. With ‘The Sanitised by Tata Motors’ initiative, we are further instilling a sense of confidence in our customers, assuring them that they are always safe while engaging with Tata Motors. This will help customers conveniently access our ‘New Forever’ range of cars and SUVs.”TataTiagoN/A
