Tiago Advantanges
  • Impressive List Of Features

    The Tiago comes with an impressive list of features for its segment. It offers projector headlamps, automatic AC, steering-mounted controls, reverse parking camera, 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, adjustable front headrests, LED DRLs, and auto-fold ORVMs.

  • Only Hatchback In Its Class With A 4-star GNCAP Rating

    Tata Tiago is the only hatchback in its segment to come with a reassuring 4-star GNCAP crash-test rating. Not only that, the Tiago fares even better than the Hyundai i20, which scored 3 stars.

  • Satisfactory Ground Clearance Of 170mm

    The Tata Tiago has a ground clearance of 170mm. It’s not SUV-spec 180mm but still better than its rivals and great for a hatchback. The Maruti Suzuki Swift, for example, offers a ground clearance of 163mm whereas the Hyundai Grand-i10 Nios offer a ground clearance of 165mm.

  • Normal Petrol Engine With Good Low-end Torque

    For a normal petrol engine, the Tiago’s 1.2L petrol engine offers its peak torque at a fairly low 3300rpm, which should help with drivability in the city. If we compare it with its rivals, the Swift’s torque peaks at 4400rpm and the Grand i10 Nios makes its at 4000rpm. It is worth noting that the Tiago gets a 3-cylinder normal petrol engine whereas both the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios get 4-cylinder normal petrol engines.

  • CNG Option Available In Top Variant

    The Tiago CNG is also the only CNG offering in its segment which comes in low, mid and top-spec variants as well. Tata Tiago 1.2L CNG bi-fuel engine comes with class-leading power and torque figures of 73PS and 95Nm, respectively. Tata Tiago commands a premium of Rs. 90,000 over the corresponding petrol variants is Rs. 5,000 less than what Maruti charge for factory-fit CNG bi-fuel option. You can use the V3Cars fuel cost calculator to do the math with respect to your usage and fuel prices.

Tiago Disadvantanges
  • The 3-cylinder Petrol Engine Refinement

    The 1.2L normal petrol engine in the Tiago lacks the refinement, which its rivals offer. The Swift and Grand i10 Nios come with a 4-cylinder normal petrol engine, which offers better refinement as it is inherently balanced for a 4-stroke combustion cycle.

  • Poorly-equipped Base Variant

    The XE variant of the Tiago misses out on some essential features, which one would expect in this day and age. It misses out on features like day/night inside rear-view mirror, remote central locking, power windows and wheel covers.

  • CNG Mileage Figures

    The Tiago CNG comes with a ARAI-tested fuel efficiency figure of 26.5kmpkg. It is much lower than the Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG, which has a phenomenal claimed fuel efficiency figure of 35.6kmpkg.
