Tata Motors has strategically offered special edition like options for it’s popular cars last month. Now the auto manufacturer is ready with another new edition. This time its new Tata Tiago Wizz edition.
This isn’t the first of Wizz offering of Tiago. In it’s maiden form, Tiago Wizz edition was introduced in 2017, resplendent in red, matched with a black roof, and red accents.
2019 Tata Tiago Wizz wears a shade of titanium grey matched with a black roof. The special edition gets subtle orange accents. The orange bit is seen forming a small triangulated effect in the front grille, on the ORVM, and a sliver on the new design DurAlloy wheels. Below is the first teaser video of the new Tata Tiago Wizz edition, which will be launched on 4th October.
Tata DurAlloy wheels are steel wheels painted in black and designed in a smart cover to look like alloy. They’ve already been used in Tiago NRG. Alongwith with orange accents will be Wizz badging to mark the limited edition from other variants.
Interiors use a dual colour combination. Premium fabric seats with orange deco-stitch, grey gear shift bezel, grey air vent bezel, orange side and center air vent ring, and granite black inner door handle.
The cosmetic changes bring forth smart design and a sense of personalization. This doesn’t warrant alterations below the hood. Power comes from a BSIV 1.2 3-cyl petrol engine that returns 84 hp, and 114 Nm, mated to a 5 speed gearbox. Fuel efficiency is pegged at 23.84 kmpl. Diesel engine is not on offer.
Launch of Tiago Wizz Edition will not only help Tata Motors boost sales during this troubled period, but will also help them sell as many BS4 cars as possible, before the more expensive and refined BS6 cars arrive.
Tata Motors is expected to launch facelifted versions of Tiago, Tigor and the Nexon at the 2020 Auto Expo. These updated versions will not only get a new front design, inspired by Tata’s IMPACT 2.0 styling, but will also get updated BS6 compliant petrol engines.
2020 Tata Tiago and Tigor facelift will only be offered with petrol BS6 engine options. Their current BS4 diesel engines will not be updated to meet BS6 norms, as it will increase the price by a huge margin. But at the same time, Tata will update the Nexon diesel to BS6. The reason Tata is updating Nexon diesel to BS6 is that about 50% of Nexon buyers prefer diesel engine option. Whereas in the case of Tiago and Tigor, less than 10% of buyers prefer diesel option.
