    The Tata Tiago is the automaker's first launch for the 2016-17 financial year and is an ambitious product for the company targeting the mass market segments. Based on the XO platform, Tiago gets an extensively reworked chassis coming from the Indica, but bears little resemblance to the older model. Instead, Tiago has been designed with inputs coming from the Indian automaker's design centres in Coventry, UK; Turin, Italy and Pune, India.

The stance is more proportioned and is intended to appeal towards young buyers. The cabin is refreshingly new and gets a dual-tone finish, completed with gloss black inserts. The three-spoke steering wheel design looks good and comes with audio and phone controls, while the centre console houses the infotainment system and HVAC unit.

Under the hood, the Tiago features two new petrol and diesel engine options. Both units are paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Tata has also provided Power and Eco modes on both versions, in a bid to extract improved fuel efficiency from the three-cylinder units.
