A True and Unbeatable Victor in its Segment...
A car often attributed as 'A True and Unbeatable Victor' is always the champion, with respect to sales and purchases, accolades and good reviews. Surely the Tata Tiago deserves to be called nothing short of a 'True and Unbeatable Victor' as it accomplishes everything that is required to be fulfilled in it's Segment. This includes possessing a chunky exterior appearance, decent leg space for comfortable seating, an engine that delivers good amount of power, various safety features and substantial storage space. The car leaves no stone unturned when it concerns itself with fulfilling the buyer's requirements. Here is my detailed evaluation of the Tiago which would be very useful for buyers to make a choice:-
The car comes in an array of chic colours. I chose the colour, 'Sunburst Orange' as it blends with the chunky-looking exterior of the Tiago. Tata cars have evolved drastically in the past few years. Out of all their designs in the hatchback segment, I liked the design of the Tiago the most as the flow of each part is such that it looks very attention- grabbing. This includes the well-designed front and rear headlamps as well as the tail lamps, the hexagonal front grille and the alloys that add a great touch to the exteriors of the car.
As soon as a person steps inside this new and plush car by Tata, the person feels warmly welcomed. Well, that's simply because of the superior craftsmanship of the Tiago's interior. The honeycombed plastic, knitted roof, well-cushioned seats and chrome finished buttons make the Tiago's interior the best in it's segment. The cabin is also quite airy which gives you a good view of the outside. Space wise it's very comfortable for 3 adults and there is enough legroom and thigh support for the rear passengers.
Drive Quality and Performance:-
The vehicle is powered with a 1.2 litre Revotron engine which delivers good amount of power but it can be refined further. The ride is quite smooth and the car can go over bumps and potholes with ample ease. The steering is very responsive. The car has two driving modes:- Eco and City. Eco mode is used during traffic jams to save fuel and deliver good mileage whereas City mode is primarily used when people are on highways in order to travel faster. The Tiago is quite fuel efficient as you get a superb 17-18 kmpl of mileage in the city and 19-20 kmpl on highways. Further with a fuel tank capacity of 35 litres your visits to fuel stations will be minimized.
Since practicality is a major concern for any potential buyer, Tata has ensured that their cars have plenty storage space. This is quite noticeable in the Tiago as you get 22 interior storage spaces. The glove box is chilled and has a button to open it. The 242 litre boot is also deep so a suitcase can fit in easily.
Passengers are assured safety when they are travelling in this car as you get Airbags, ABS and EBD which you get only in the higher variants.
Finally Tata Motors seem to have got the right features and product design for the Tiago. It's a well packed car which is also not overpriced so one should just go for it. I wish the Tiago all the very best!
