All these three products will cater to promising sub-segments in the Indian car market.

The Tata Hexa, Kite 5 and Nexon which were showcased at the Auto Expo are slated to be launched one after the other in regular intervals.

The Kite 5 would be positioned below the Zest.

The Kite 5 sedan which is essentially a sedan version of the Tiago sports an interesting exterior design while retaining the hatchback’s interior design. The sedan will use the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol and 1.05-litre three-cylinder diesel engine that debuted in the Tiago. Launch is slated to take place in the October-November period.

The Nexon compact crossover which is aimed to take on the Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport is not expected to be here before April-May 2017. The sub-4 SUV is most likely to use a brand-new homegrown diesel engine (displacing around 1.5-litre) and hence the stretched dead-line.
