The car looks quite well designed in all these shots. I have a feeling it will turn out to be a good looking car once its finally "revealed".

Birdie "Ron" sends these spy shots from the outskirts of Pune, and this message:

The driver requested not to take any interior pictures, but they looked similar to the Tiago's interiors.

There will be at least one AMT variant on offer, if not more.



ET Auto's sources now confirm what my birdies have been tweeting all along - the Kite5 sedan will be launched by Tata Motors in March 2017.

Quote:
"The launch of Kite 5 sedan was earlier scheduled for the month of January 2017. However, the launch was later re-scheduled for March 2017 as the dealership network wasn't equipped enough to cater to new launches," a source close to the development informed ETAuto on the condition of anonymity.

It's official - the Kite5 compact sedan will be called the Tata TIGOR. (to be pronounced as "Tee-gor")

To be differentiated as a new body type, called as "styleback" - stylish notchback?

These sketch designers should keep things more realistic. They've made it look like an SUV in this image.

That said, Tiago is a good looking car. Should have just used a real image.

TATA could have come with better name than "Tigor" a "Styleback". Very close to the "Igor", "hunchback" from Dr. Frankenstein

Tigor sounds like a fun, youthful, stylish and zestful brandname.

Sketches like these have been effective in building up hype. The TUV 300 is a great example with all the over the top 'Tank' like sketches.

Name do not matter much, unless it means something really bad in some Indian languages.Even that does not matter - "Laura" anyone? and there are few hundred different languages spoken here in India.

Tata was criticized for naming a car "Zica/Tiago". Other than few people from forums like these no one had issue with the name. This time, I think they went with a name which sound similar to Tiago.
