Tata Tiago was launched on April 6, 2016. It has seen increased demand which has surprised Tata officials as well.

Tata Tiago, the new small car from Tata which competes with the likes of Maruti Celerio and Hyundai i10, has already registered over 20,000 bookings. Tata Motors themselves are surprised with this number as they stated recently that the demand has exceeded their expectations.

Available in both petrol and diesel engine options, it is the petrol variant of Tiago which is more in demand. 70-80% of bookings are for petrol variants, reveals a report.
