Tata has rolled out the 1,00,000th unit of its Tiago hatchback from its manufacturing facility in Sanand, Gujarat. The Tiago has achieved this milestone in approximately 18 months from its launch.
The Tiago is the first Tata model to be based on the company’s new Impact design language. Along with the new design, the hatchback also got with it a new set of engines - a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol producing 84bhp and 114Nm, and a 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel making 69bhp and 140Nm.
The petrol is also made available with a 5-speed AMT unit, which has proved to be quite popular amongst Tiago buyers. On an average, Tata sells 4,500 odd units of the Tiago every month, which though not segment leading, is a reasonably good number.
The interiors of the Tiago too are a marked improvement over the older Tatas - both in terms of design and quality. Even today, features like a touchscreen infotainment system and multi-drive modes (Eco and City) remain exclusive to the Tata Tiago in this segment. The Tiago competes with cars like the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Hyundai Grand i10 and Honda Brio.
We have also lived with the Tiago for a couple of months as it was a part of our long term fleet. You can read about our experience with the car here - Tata Tiago Long Term Report: September 2017
