It has been confirmed that the Tata Zica will globally arrive bearing the Tata Tiago moniker. Tata Motors has already started promoting the new name through its social media channels. The company took the decision to rename the Zica as it was uncomfortably similar to the 'Zika' virus that continues to spread across the world. In order to show empathy towards those affected by it, Tata decided to change the name of the car and did so by way of using a global crowd-sourcing competition called '#FantasticoNameHunt' in which fans got to vote for their preferred new name from a shortlist of 3 suggestions- Tiago, Adore and Civet. The car is an important product for Tata Motors and the carmaker did not want to proceed with a controversial name that could potentially result in bad publicity and adversely affect sales.

The basic idea of the #FantasticoNameHunt campaign was to find a new name for the car without sacrificing on the buzz already created around the Tata Zica. By making customers choose between the 3 options, Tata managed to create a more personalised connection between the Zica (now Tiago) and its fans. At the end of the competition, the results of the voting were unveiled and the Zica finally got its new name- Tiago.
