The much awaited performance versions of the humble Tata Tiago and Tigor will be in Indian showrooms shortly. The Tata Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP will be launched in India on October 26, 2018. Tata Motors has revealed details of the powertrain as well as other tuned components of both the cars. Here are all the details you need to know except for the Tata Tiago JTP price in India.
Tata Tiago JTP details
The Tata Tiago JTP is the hatchback version. In terms of looks, it gets aggressive bumpers at the front and back. There are also chrome lined projector headlamps, DRLs, trapezoidal grille as well as side skirts. There are also JTP badges done in red on the grille, back and sides. 15-inch wider tyres and diamond cut alloy wheels are on offer too. Roof mounted spoiler, blacked out roof and dual exhaust ports too are part of the package.
The cabin of the Tata Tiago JTP gets an all black treatment. There are however sporty red accents too. The steering is leather wrapped now and gets contrast red stitching. The same treatment is applied to the seats as well. Tata Motors has used a red stitching for the manual transmission shifter as well. Of course, drilled aluminium pedals too are part of the package. Tata has also added JTP badging for the meter dials though the latter look the same as before. A touchscreen infotainment system has been borrowed from the Tiago NRG.
Engine of the Tata Tiago JTP
The petrol engine is a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder unit from the Nexon and is turbocharged as well. While in the Tata Nexon, it makes 110PS, here it produces 114PS of power and 150Nm. Power is channeled to the front wheels through a new 5-speed gearbox. Tata Motor claims a time of 9.95s from 0-100kmph for the Tiago JTP while the Tigor does it in 10.35. The top speed of the Tata Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP will be around 185kmph.
In terms of suspension, the ride height has been lowered for additional handling prowess while the shockers too have been stiffened. Tata Motors is said to have uprated the brakes but the technical specifications sheet says there are drums at the rear and discs in front. Both the vehicles should be priced approximately Rs 1.2 lakh over the corresponding XZ trims.
