Which name do you prefer for the Tiago sedan - Viago or Altigo or Tigor?

(apparently they have swayed away from "Sway")

Likely to be called as Tata Viago or Tata Altigo, Tata Motors is looking at carrying forward the Go tag on the sedan version too. The other name that has been shortlisted is Tata Tigor.

I don't like any of the three. If they want to retain the "go" I would prefer something like "Diego"; First name of the great Maradona. That would be a second connection to Argentine football after Messi. They can think up Ads featuring the two of them together (Maradona and Messi).

Viago would be bad in my opinion. I don't know if there is a term for this kind of usage but in Hindi we have a habit of saying Scorpio vorpio, Indica vindica, Tiago Viago and so on (the second word stating with V means et cetra).

Altigo sounds too close to Altis and Tigor just lacks creativity.

Thats good new for this car. It looks like the most beautiful and proportionately designed sub-4 m car. Tata should launch this car in the market without any delay. After Tiago's success, I am sure it will find a lot of takers.

Spotted testing on the NH4 Mumbai-Goa highway by a Motorbeam spy.

Expected to be launched anytime soon, the Tata Kite 5 has been spotted running at decent speed on the NH4 Mumbai-Goa Highway.
Sheets covering the car this time could be an indication that minute distinctions to the looks might be executed than what the viewers have already seen.
Basically, it carries a similar design pattern to that of the Tiago but in sedan avatar. With a bunch of improved features, a majority of interior bits will resemble the Tiago.

Spotted testing near Pune by an IAB reader.

Tata Motors is prepping the Kite5 sedan for a launch sometime during the first half of 2017.

Quote:
The photograph features the rear-end of Tata’s next sub-4m sedan, sporting small wraparound taillamps, a long LED strip as the third-brake light, and a conventional radio antenna rather than a shark-fin unit.
This particular Kite 5 test mule appears to finished in Tiago’s Striker Blue color.

I have also spotted this vehicle a couple of times on the pune Mumbai expressway. Once it was parked at a food mall I saw its interiors as well which were similar to the tiago. The boot also looks well integrated to the tiago hatch.

The top of the line (XZ) variant of the Kite5 was recently spotted on test in Pune by a Carwale spy, who captured it from all angles.

Interestingly, the captured test mule was equipped with projector headlamps, all-black interiors, a 5-inch touchscreen Harman infotainment system and an automatic climate control unit.

Quote:
The test mule was the top-of-the-line variant of the compact sedan and featured all of the components that the carmaker plans to offer.

A blue exterior paint was seen under the camouflage and the car sported projector headlamps and fog lamps.

The interior sported an all-black interior unlike the Tiago with a dual-tone combo. Interestingly, it features a five-inch touch screen Harman infotainment system and automatic climate control that's missing even on other Tata siblings like the Bolt and the Zest.

These features will be Exclusive to this Compact Sedan, Tata has done well to delete some features in Tiago & add them in the Sedan Version. This is how it should be, in order to compensate the higher price tag. Honda has done the same with City & Jazz.

This fact hasn't been well accepted by us, Indian's. Period.

Zest has both automatic climate control and a 5" touch screen infotainment system in the XT and XTA variants.

I think he means the difference in features between the hatchback and the compact sedan. Unlike the top models of Bolt and Zest, which have similar equipment list (barring the DRLs), Tiago and the Kite are speculated to have a bigger difference in their equipment list. IMO, this is a good way to differentiate, justify the price for sedan and will pull customers to upgrade to the better equipped car.

Team,

Bringing you yet another Team-BHP Exclusive!

Here are the first pictures of the Kite5 sedan in it's production-ready form.

This is the fully loaded, top-of-the-line, XZ variant.

50 cars (all XZ variants) have been made for the Media Drive, which is scheduled for a end-Jan 2017 date (possibly shortly after the Hexa launch).

Instrument cluster is the same as the Tiago.

The central console sees the addition of an Automatic Climate Control unit, which will display current cabin temperature too.

Interior pics coming up very, very soon.


(A big thank you to my birdies for sharing this)

Looks pretty neat. I love those alloy wheels. This particular color seems to be an addition and it looks good too. I didn't like the thick chrome strip at the rear though. Somehow it is not going well with this color choice.
I hope Tata Motors refine the Tiago's petrol engine and reduce the noise levels before the launch.
