Tata is getting ready to launch the Tiago JTP in India. In fact, it has been testing the car in Coimbatore with full gusto. This is the second time the Tata Tiago JTP has been spotted testing. Tata Motors and Jayem Motors from Coimbatore have come together to develop the Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP. These are basically sportier versions of the Tiago and Tigor. The Tiago and the Tigor JTP models were first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. In all probability, Tata will be launching the Tiago JTP before the Tigor JTP.

There will be a few exterior updates on the Tiago JTP in order to distinguish it from the regular Tiago. For starters, the Tiago JTP will have a new air intake on the bonnet, red ORVMs, refreshed grille, redesigned bumpers, double-spoke alloy wheels, gloss black roof and red JTP logos all over. At the rear, the Tiago JPT gets a slight makeover with a JTP badge on a tail gate along with a re-styled bumper as well. There will also be a twin-pipe exhaust as well. The car just might get uprated suspension as well.
The Tiago JTP will continue to get a 1.2-litre petrol engine which has been borrowed from the Tata Nexon. It makes around 108 bhp and 150 Nm of peak torque. The engine will continue to get a 5-speed manual gearbox and will also have revised gear ratios. The car should be launched in the next few months. Expect the pricing to be at a slight premium over the current pricing range of the standard Tata Tiago.
