New Tata Tiago 2017 Design

Tata Tiago front angle

The New Tata Tiago 2017 is based on an all new design theme. Not only is the hatchback stylish, it is proportionate too, which adds to its beauty. It has a pleasing humanity line on the front grille and the sleek headlamps go well with it. Extra flair is added by the chrome surrounds on the fog lamps. The New Tata Tiago 2017 looks attractive in bright colours. However, in regular subtle shades, it may not attract a lot of attention.

The lines on the Tata Tiago are crisp though and continue all the way to the rear. The rear is also all new and stands out. There is a neatly integrated rear spoiler with black coloured edges. The wheel size though small, offers a good ride and helps in extracting better mileage.

New Tata Tiago 2017 Interiors

The New Tata Tiago 2017 gets good quality interiors, which is such a change from earlier Tata cars. They are the best Tata has ever made. A neatly laid out dashboard and centre console is very welcoming. It has three knobs for air-con and well textured panels. The steering wheel is the same as on other Tata cars. It comes with controls for audio and bluetooth. The twin dial instrument cluster is neat too. The cabin ambience is much better than most of its competition. The New Tata Tiago 2017 looks appealing and stylish. There are body colour inserts (air-con surrounds) that makes it look trendy, especially in the orange colour.

Tata Tiago interior

The seats of the New Tata Tiago 2017 are quite comfortable. They are soft and could’ve been a little firm, though. The adjustable head restraints look good. The space inside is good too. From the outside it doesn’t look so spacious. This is better than most of the other vehicles in this segment. The rear seats lack thigh support, but overall it is better than the rest in this segment. The boot on the New Tata Tiago 2017 isn’t the largest at 230 litres, but it has good enough usable space for daily city drives, household chores and short weekend getaways.

New Tata Tiago 2017 Colours

The Tata Tiago colour options are as follows:

  • Sunburst Orange
  • Pearlescent White
  • Espresso Brown
  • Striker Blue
  • Platinum Silver
  • Berry Red

The striker blue in the New Tata Tiago 2017 is an amazing colour, which isn’t seen very commonly. This is the most stylish and appealing colour. However, sunburst orange is the company’s communication colour.

New Tata Tiago 2017 Engine

Tata Tiago in motion

The New Tata Tiago 2017 comes in petrol as well as diesel engine options. The performance of both these engines is decent and are at ease in the city and also the highway. The petrol engine is a bit noisy and has some vibrations too. Otherwise, this is a good engine to consider. The diesel surprisingly is quieter and peppier than the petrol. A five-speed manual transmission drives both these engines. The New Tata Tiago 2017 will be getting an AMT soon. This will be on the petrol version though. There is even an Eco mode on both the engines. This mode helps in deriving a better fuel efficiency.

New Tata Tiago 2017 Ride and Handling

The Tata Tiago is very impressive when it comes to its ride quality. It is easily the best in its segment. The Tiago’s suspension is well tunes to offer a pliant ride. The ride is well-cushioned and absorbs most bumps and potholes with comfortable ease. Tata has traditionally been good in this department and gets better with the Tiago. The handling is also pretty good for city driving. The steering is light and responsive. This makes it easy to park in tight spots. On the highway the car doesn’t lose its composure and one can easily cruise at 130 km/h. The car remains steady. We wish the brakes were slightly better.

New Tata Tiago 2017 Competition

The Tata Tiago 2017 will compete with the new Maruti Celerio 2017, Maruti Wagon R and the New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 in the true sense. It has still done a better job than the others. We have done a comparison of the three and Tiago comes out as a clear winner.

Hyundai XCent 2017 motion

The new Hyundai XCent 2017 is here. This isn’t an all new car, it is a facelift. But the Korean automaker has given it multiple changes that makes it look stylish and appealing. There are major cosmetic changes that makes it look so different. It doesn’t have any more bits that will it resemble the Hyundai Grand i10, instead it now looks a lot similar to the Verna and the Elantra family. This has changed the design and the appeal of this sedan completely.

As the XCent facelift 2017 is based on the same platform, there isn’t a change in its dimensions. Hence, the proportions are the same and so is the interior space. The XCent still offers the same Grand i10 interiors, which are black and beige. There are circular AC vents and this time a touchscreen infotainment system also. This is what makes the Hyundai look stylish. The other features on offer are somewhat the same. There is keyless entry, push start and stop button, dual airbags, ABS, rear AC vents, rear arm rest and even leather wrapped steering and gear lever.

Moving on to the engine, there is a 1.2-litre Kappa2 engine that produces about 83bhp of power and 115Nm of maximum torque. This is offered with a five-speed manual and four-speed automatic options. At the same time, there is an all new 1.2-litre CRDi diesel engine that churns about 85bhp of power and this comes with a five-speed manual only. This is an all new engine and has an improvement in its power and mileage both.

Power82 bhp
Transmission5-speed manual/ 4-speed auto

The new Hyundai XCent 2017 comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. This produces about 82bhp of power and comes with five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmission options. This is the same engine like the earlier petrol XCent. There isn’t any change on it. So, we expect the performance to remain the same. This engine is good enough for daily city driving. On the highway it is good enough for cruising comfortably at around 120 km/h

The new 1.2-litre diesel also makes its way into this car. It was earlier launched with the new Grand i10. The best bit about this engine is its refinement. It is extremely quiet and it doesn’t make much noise either. This is one of the most highly refined diesel engines in the country. The power is good enough. There isn’t any kind of turbo lag and the engine has good amount of power and torque delivery too. This comes with a five-speed manual transmission. The gearbox is easy to shift and the clutch is extremely light too. This is what makes this engine such a good bit.

New Hyundai XCent 2017 Exterior

The New Hyundai XCent 2017 facelift gets an all new fascia. There is a new trapezoidal grille, which is now a trademark of Hyundais. This grille now has chrome slats that makes it look cool. At the same time, this makes it look bigger. The headlamp design is the same as that on the Grand i10. This doesn’t get any change. There are daytime running LEDs also in it. The new XCent looks more stylish and the fresh look is welcome. But in real life, it looks a bit off in proportions at the front. The new fascia and rear makes it look completely different. Hyundai has done a good job to differentiate the compact sedan from its hatchback sibling.

The side profile of the New Hyundai XCent 2017 is the same. It gets a new set of alloy wheels, though. The proportions are also the same as this is a cosmetic upgrade than an all new platform. The rear gets some additional chrome treatment to make it look more upmarket and tail lamp is now a two piece, wrap around one.

Tata Tigor available at a discount of INR 18000

Published

on

Tata Tigor front

The Tata Tiago is now available at a discount of INR 18000 in Bengaluru. In Mumbai, the discount is around INR 13,000 and INR 12,000 in Delhi, NCR. The discount on a newly launched car is always desirable and makes it slightly better value for money. The Tata Tigor shares the same platform of the Tiago, but it has undergone multiple changes. Be it design, length, wheelbase, design and even features. So there are multiple changes on the Tigor from the regular hatchback. These are similarities too, but these are minimal. There aren’t a lot of same bits in both the cars.

The Tigor has 50mm longer wheelbase and this makes the rear door longer. The front resembles the Tiago but then the front grille has a different design, it gets smoked headlamps. The front fog lamps are different. Then the side profile looks different as the sporty back looks stylish and the rear also looks different. The tail lamps even have LEDs and the rear spoiler gets LEDs in them too.

In terms of engine, there is the 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine This engine produces about 84bhp of power and 110Nm of peak torque. The diesel is a 1.05-litre engine that churns about 70bhp of power. Both these engines come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

If you look at the prices and compare the Tigor with the Tiago, it is a lot more expensive. However, the moment the comparison is made to the other compact sedans, Tigor appears to be way more cheaper. The pricing is competitive, but we won’t call it to be aggressive enough.

Tata Tigor Driving Dynamics

In terms of driving, the Tata Tigor ride has a very supple ride. It irons out most of the road bumps and it does a fairly good job. The handling too, is one of the best in its segment. Push it around a bend and the hatchback does a good job. The steering wheel is light and still has good enough feedback. This is what makes it stand out.

The fuel tank capacity of the Tata Tigor is 35 litres, which will be sufficient for long road trips as well. The ride quality of this vehicle is good and what stands is its handling. It is a good mix of ride quality and handling characteristics. The ABS on offer comes with EBD (electronic brake force distribution), corner stability control (CSC) for enhanced braking efficiency.

Tata Tigor Design

In terms of styling, there isn’t a major difference in the fascia. Well, it resembles the Tiago to a great extent. There is a sleek front grille along with a black honeycomb mesh and smoked out headlamps too. The round fog lamps have chrome surrounds. The wing mirrors are blacked out as it matches with the roof too.

The Tata Tigor feels more like a notchback. Where it stands out is that it looks different. That is one of the strong points for this sedan. While, most of the compact sedans are more of a compromise in design, the Tata Tigor does it the other way.

Tata Tigor Interiors

It is on the inside that the Tata Tigor looks similar to the Tiago. The interiors are all black, when compared to the Tiago, which is black and grey. The Tata Tigor has the same signature three spoke steering wheel with controls for music and voice command. There will be the same instrument cluster too. This displays average speed, distance to empty, fuel efficiency and instant fuel efficiency as well. The driver information system is new.

Tata Tigor interior

As the wheelbase of the sedan has seen an increase, it has much better rear knee room. This enhances the comfort too. At the same time, Tata Tigor even gets a rear arm rest with two cup holders in it. The boot space at 419 litres is certainly one of the largest in the segment. This makes the Tigor a highly practical compact sedan.

A 1.2-litre petrol does duty on the Tigor. This engine is fantastic. It is smooth and very easy to drive. There is no oomph factor about it. It has been tuned for better mileage than performance. There is sufficient power to overtake but then it doesn’t have the refinement. There is an evident petrol engine noise and some amount of vibration at low speeds. But then this engine is smooth and is easy to drive in the city or even on the highway. Job done! 5-speed manual box is sleek and short.

The diesel engine on the other hand has very linear power. There is good enough power at low engine speed, but it is comfortable to cruise in. Even for the highway, it is a good vehicle to cruise in. At the same time, one needs to downshift to make those quick overtaking moves. Tata Tigor has a smaller size engine, and the power doesn’t match up to the competition in the diesel engines. The engine is fairly refined and has very low engine noise. The diesel engine clatter is audible only after 4000rpm. There is high levels of refinement in this engine. In performance, petrol should be your pick, while diesel is more of a mile muncher option.

Maruti Alto K10 AMT gets a discount of INR 67,000

Published

on

2016 Maruti Alto K10 facelift

The Maruti Alto K10 AMT is being offered with a huge discount of upto INR 67,000 in Bengaluru. The discount makes the car much more value for money. The discount of INR 40,000 is offered in Mumbai and about INR 22,000 in NCR and  about INR 45,000 in Hyderabad. The Alto K10 has recently seen some major revolution in the design, performance and in the interior of the car. This change has, for sure, bought a lot more buyers for the new Maruti Suzuki Alto. Read our detailed review.

 

Maruti Alto K10 Design

The previous Maruti Alto K10 had the old Alto shape, which has been completely phased out. The exterior of the Maruti Alto K10 now looks sufficiently different than the Alto 800 from both, the rear and the front even though it is the same under its skin. The headlamps have grown bigger and bolder with a distinguishing front grille with a thick chrome slate and the ‘S’ shape symbol of Suzuki in-between. The lower air dams are black and do look smarter than its previous design.

The side profile of the Maruti Alto K10 also looks a bit different with a black-fibre strip right in the center and what we could see was the rear window had reduced in dimensions. The door panels also get blackened and this black touch all over the car makes the exterior look a bit sporty.

The rear also gets bigger tail lamps, which are somewhat different than the Alto 800. The number plate slot has moved down to the bumper while it appears that the rear hatch door as well as the tail lamps have been flattened a bit to give it a look of a big sized car.

Maruti Alto K10 Interior

The interior of the Maruti Alto K10 is totally fresh when compared to its 800cc sibling. The console and the dash has a black and beige tone with the instrument cluster having features like the USB option and aux input and a mp3 player. The buttons are big and clear and hence easy and convenient to use. This new centre console is a welcome after the old Alto 800 styling, which does look outdated.

The Maruti Alto K10 gets new rich beige fabric seats to add a pinch of richness in the cabin. The cabin space is sufficient and feels airy. The front row seats are comfortable for even long drives. In the second row there is sufficient kneeroom even for tall people and there is enough head room as well, but the thigh support could have been better.

Maruti Alto K10 Engine

The Maruti Alto K10 gets a 1.0-litre engine which is mated with a five-speed manual gear box and producing 67bhp and 90Nm of power. This three-cylinder engine has be good power but most of its is delivered at high rpm. One needs to revv the engine to extract the best performance from it. For those quick overtaking moves, one has to downshift. Driving the Maruti Alto K10 in city is easy and one doesn’t have to shift a lot of gears in traffic.

The engine has a good punch and it doesn’t feel running out of juice even on highways. The engine’s NVH levels are also low. This engine also powers the Wagon R and the Celerio, but as this body is lighter, the performance is much better.

Maruti Alto K10 AMT

The AMT is a boon for those who are tired of shifting gears in mad traffic. Maruti Suzuki has found a superb solution, which is a clutch free gearshift known as the AMT gearbox. The Maruti Alto K10 AMT is very similar to the manual version but without the clutch. The Maruti Alto K10 AMT performs a little different from a fully automatic transmission. In this gearbox one can definitely feel the gearshifts happening under the hood and at this time the driver feels the car to be just numb. There is no response or I can say there a slight pause in the engine when such gearshifts occur, especially till it is in the third gear.

Though the pause is very evident, the power delivered after a certain speed is just straight forward, push the gas pedal hard and you get a quick response. Overtaking on highways at high speed is also not a big deal for the AMT. Still the best use of this AMT can be felt in traffic conditions as your drive becomes just hassle free due to this AMT gearbox.

Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 AMT 26

The best part about Maruti Alto K10 AMT was its quick gearshifts. As we touched 50km/hr the car was already in its top gear. This proves how fuel-efficient the car is. The Maruti Alto K10 AMT gave us a fair mileage of 20kmpl keeping our speed restricted between 80-100km/hr.

Maruti Alto K10 Ride and Handling

The Maruti Alto K10 gives a very smooth and a happy experience to the driver. The ride quality is good in city and in fact the suspension does a good job too. The Maruti Alto K10 felt very pliant at high speeds. It was clearly evident that the car could be under your control at any point of the time. Even the steering response is good, even though it is light and easy to drive. The 1.0-litre engine is very smooth, linear yet active.

We drove the petrol variant of the car, both on the highway and in the city traffic. The city driving in the Maruti Alto K10 was effortless as the car could move smoothly without any gearshifts even at low speeds whereas on highways it felt very active as well as linear. Overtaking was found to be simple as power supplied was sufficient. There was enough power supplied post 2000rpm, which pulled on till the red line.

Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 AMT 19

Maruti Alto K10 Price

The Maruti Alto K10 is being offered with six different options from the base LX, LXi, VXi, VXi-AMT and the CNG option. The price of the Alto K10 starts at INR 4 lakhs to INR 4.5 lakhs (on-road, Delhi).

Maruti Alto K10 Competition

The competitors for the Maruti Alto K10 are the Renault Kwid 1.0 and Hyundai Eon 1.0. But what advantage Maruti Alto K10 has is the Maruti Suzuki after sales service and resale value that no other car can give in this segment, currently.
