July 06, 2016: Tata showcased the Tiago-based compact sedan, Kite 5, at the 2016 Auto Expo. The car consolidates a stubby but practical boot apart from some segment-first features. It includes Harman-powered infotainment unit paired to an 8-speaker sound system and the body colored AC pallets. Dual airbags and ABS, on the other hand, are standard. A high level of passenger comfort is rendered to the occupants of the vehicle with these characteristics which are similar to Tiago. The car will be powered by the same powertrains as in the Tiago hatchback. The 1.2L three-cylinder Revotron develops 85PS and 114Nm of torque while the 1.05L Revotorq generates 70PS and 140Nm of torque. The compact sedan has been spotted in a dealership revealing features such as the rear armrest, climate control and a slightly bigger infotainment system than the Tiago.

Tata Kite 5 review

India's very popular automobile firm, Tata Motors had a busy last year, as it had rolled out new models in the hatchback and compact sedan segment. Those models were initially named under the project 'Falcon', which later took the name as Bolt and Zest. However, the company doesn't seems to be resting, as it is planning to introduce new compact sedan and a hatchback in the entry level segment. Recently, some of the auto enthusiasts have spotted test mule of a sub 4-meter sedan, which is currently carrying the name as Tata Kite Sedan . However, it might receive a new nomenclature, just like their Zest sedan, which was developed under project Falcon. At present, there is no official information available from the manufacturer relating to its technical specifications or features. At the same time, there is no word from the manufacturer about its official launch date in the country. Many of the market experts believe that this upcoming sedan will be available with petrol and diesel engine options among which, the petrol variants are expected to host the 1.2-litre Revotron engine. It is a four cylinder mill that has a total displacement capacity of 1193cc and is further incorporated with a variable geometry turbocharger. This is the same engine, which is currently under the hood a couple of Tata models. It is capable of producing a maximum power of 88.8bhp at 5000rpm along with a maximum torque of 140Nm between just 1500 to 4000rpm. However, the manufacturer may reduce its power output to improve its overall fuel efficiency. It is certain that this motor will be paired with a five speed manual transmission gearbox.

At the same time, manufacturer may also offer the AMT transmission option for the buyers. According to the speculations, this petrol version may return better mileage of about 20 Kmpl, which will certainly help it to be a tough competitor. On the other hand, its diesel versions are speculated to house a new 3-cylinder mill, which is said that it is going to be the most fuel efficient in its class. At present, there is no information about its technical specifications, since it is still under development stage. It is expected to produce a mileage of more than 26 Kmpl. Coming to the exterior design, this vehicle might share the same chassis and body platform of Zest compact sedan, but its exterior cosmetics can look different. At the same time, it could carry signature cosmetics like a perforated radiator grille with humanitarian line on it. The images posted on some of the online portals suggest that the portion of headlight cluster is large, but the final design might a little look different. However, with the body structure it has, we can say that the vehicle has an aerodynamic look, which will certainly grab the attention. As we can see from the images, this vehicle gets massive front bumper with sharp lip and small air intake section, which provides a sporty appeal to its frontage. It has smaller fenders, which could be fitted with wheels of size 14-inch or even less. At the same time, the manufacturer will certainly provide an option to choose between steel and alloy wheels.

On the other hand, this vehicle is most likely to get halogen based headlamps as standard feature considering the fact that it is going to be in the entry level segment. In terms of interiors, this upcoming hatchback may not look as rich as the Zest sedan, but its design will certainly represent the new design language of the company. It is going to be a five seater model and is expected to come with better cabin space than anticipated. At the same time, we can expect for a decent luggage compartment that could have a volume of 300 litres or even more. The seats inside may not be as wide as those in the Zest sedan, but are expected to get premium fabric upholstery as cover. Recently, some of the auto portals have also posted the exclusive images of Kite hatchback. Experts believe that this vehicle will also share the same interior design like its sibling. The images, which were posted on some of the portals disclosed the design of steering wheel and a bit of its center fascia. With this, we can say that its interiors will have a dual tone color scheme along with a bit of metallic accents on steering wheel. However, there are no control switches on its steering wheel, which might cause disappointment to the buyers. It is too early to state anything about the features, as the vehicle is still undergoing test runs. Considering the fact that it is going to be in entry level segment, we can expect it with all the standard comfort features like manual air conditioning system, power assisted steering, storage units and other such aspects.

In addition to these, we can also expect for features including central locking system, power windows, driver's seat height adjuster and a rear defogger. Beside these, one can also expect for a 2-DIN music system including a CD player along with a Radio. Like any other conventional model, it may also include connectivity options including USB, AUX-In and Bluetooth for seamless audio streaming. However, this compact sedan may not feature touchscreen infotainment system like we have seen in the Zest, since it is expected to be launched in the entry level segment. In terms of safety, this yet to be launched vehicle would certainly get anti lock braking system along with electronic brake force distribution system depending upon the level of its trim. There is no doubt that the vehicle will be built using good quality steel material featuring side impact protection beams along with crumple zones, which are important for absorbing the impact caused in case of an accidents. In addition to these, its top end trims can be blessed with air bags along with keyless entry function, collapsible steering wheel and a few other advanced features, which further enhances the level of safety. However, all these assumptions are based on speculations going round the market, but the final list of feature might be different.
