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.
