Tata Motors plans to launch many new cars this year. Starting with Altroz on 22nd Jan, Tata will launch Nexon Electric, Tiago facelift, Tigor facelift, Nexon facelift, Gravitas SUV, H2X mini SUV, etc. In addition to this, they will also be updating select cars from their current line-up to meet BS6 norms.
Altroz and Nexon electric have already been detailed officially by the company in the past weeks. Now brochure scans of the facelifted Nexon, Tigor and Tiago have leaked ahead of official launch. This is credit to Motors Automotive Facebook page.
As you can see in the leaked brochure of 2020 Tata Tiago facelift – it will come in new colour options. Total of 6 colours are on offer – Flame Red, Pearlescent White, Victory Yellow, Pure Silver, Tectonic Blue and Daytona Grey. You also get a black roof to give the contrast / dual tone effect. On the outside, it gets a revised headlight cluster, new grille, new bumper in the front and rear. On the inside, it gets similar dashboard, new seat fabric, colour accents on air vents, etc.
2020 Tata Tigor gets similar updates like the Tiago facelift. The new pictures reveal the finer details of the design revision. The new headlamps feature vertical turn indicators located on the inner edges. The tapering black-finished honeycomb grille certainly sets a sharp tone to the Tigor’s face. Further changes include revised bumper with new airdam and fog light enclosures. The overall look aligns with Tata Motors’ IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy that debuted on the Harrier and Altroz.
Considering that the Tigor and Tiago twins received an interior update with digital instrument cluster and larger 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system only a few months back, the same continues on facelift. That said, Tata Motors may incorporate a few improvements based on customer feedback. Colour options on offer with Tigor facelift are – Pure Silver, Deep Red, Pearlescent White, Arizona Blue and Daytona Grey.
Speaking about the 2020 Nexon facelift, in comparison to the other two, it is the Nexon which has received the most updates. Nexon facelift is based on the Tata Motors’ Impact 2.0 design philosophy as is also seen in the case of the Altroz, Harrier. It gets slimmer and wider headlamps, a sleek grille design and larger bumpers and a larger air dam. It also receives a redesigned bonnet which appeared flatter as compared to its current counterpart along with redesigned tailgate and tail lamps.
On the inside, it gets the new all digital instrument console from Tiago and Tigor facelift. The free standing touchscreen infotainment system remains same. Steering now feature controls for cruise control, in addition to existing options. Interiors are seen in new colour combination while seats get new fabric. There appears to be faux carbon fiber inserts on the door panels. Colour options include Tectonic Blue with White roof, Daytona Grey with White roof, Foliage with White roof, Caligary White with Sonic Silver roof, Pure Silver with White roof, and Flame Red with White roof.
As far as powertrain lineup for Tiago and Tigor FL is concerned, the 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol motor will receive BS6 updates which could result is slightly revision of power and torque figures. As of now, the motor is tuned to deliver 85 hp and 114 Nm of torque. It is mated either to a 5-MT or a 5-AMT. The 1.05-liter three-cylinder diesel engine is not likely to make the BS6 switch owning to low demand and huge costs involved.
2020 Nexon FL is expected to be powered by the same petrol and diesel engine options as seen on the current counterpart, but the engines will now be updated to meet BS6 norms. The 1.2 liter, 3 cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine will offer 108 bhp power and 170 Nm torque while the 1.5 liter, 4 cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine will be capable of 108 hp power and 260 Nm torque. Both engines are mated to either a 6 speed manual or an AMT. Upgraded to comply with BS VI emission standards, the three new Tata cars will see a price hike.
Update – Tata Motors has opened bookings for their facelifted Nexon, Tiago and Tigor. Below are the official images of the three cars, which will soon be seen at a Tata authorized dealership near you.
