Wow, looks absolutely hot in this shade of blue. Hide the logo and no one will be able to tell that this a Tata. I just hope that they get their sales and after sales fixed and this car should sell well.

Off topic, but I wish if Tata could actually build a >4 meter car with this design and silhouette. May be even a LWB of the Kite 5 with a bigger boot.

Yep, it does looks smashing.

Talking about the LWB version of Kite5 makes me remember, the Tata Pr1ma concept influence can be seen all over the Kite5 rear.

The present engines are average, with the diesel being good for it's class. But do really hope that Tata brings a proper powered 4 pot for the Kite5, cause otherwise i can't find much fault with the Tiago or the Kite5.

Kite 5 on Prathap Bose Twitter page looks absolutely stunning. Those alloys are drool worthy!! High mounted rear red light is cool too!

Tata Motors have a great challenger and winner in their hands!

All the blogs and websites out there point to a similar engine as that of Tiago.
Petrol seems to slightly ok with 85PS where as the diesel with much smaller engine has just 70PS. For a car of this dimension wouldn't that be seriously underpowered ?With TATA cars being a little heavy in comparision to the competitors I wonder how it will perform with 4 Adults and a full boot.

From the images the above the car looks stunning in blue shade and I sincerely hope TATA will extract more power from those motors.

My reliable Tata birdie tweets that the Kite 5 sedan might come in with the 74PS/190Nm diesel option. It's already been tested.

A very welcome addition indeed. 4bhp extra and more importantly 40Nm extra is always welcome, given that the Tiago diesel had just about average performance.

An AMT option is under consideration. Might not be available immediately from launch, though.

Still unclear if it's the 1.05L with VGT, or the 1.3L in it's 75PS tune.

Will post an update when I get it.

If it's around June end I would like to wait for this rather then going for Tiago.
Also, any info on what is the boot space?

Thanks a lot Avi bhai. This specs looks good 190Nm of torque should pull us out of troubles

This post from IAB says its 420 litres. But how practical it would be is the question. From the images surfacing looks it might have a narrow boot opening

Not sure about the Nexon, because the profile of that vehicle is boxy. Also at the left side of the image i can see some strange car. any guess for that vehicle?

Thanks to TAI forum member DJ Bro for this scoop!

Quote:
As most of you know, I am one among the admins of the Tiago owners Whatsapp group.
Now, there are two Tata employees working in manufacturing plants at Sanand and Pune each.
They have been a part of manufacturing of the KITE 5 mules and have seen and felt the car in person.
Their word is that the Kite 5 will have projector headlamps, great interiors as seen on Tiago and will retain most of the features seen on the concept car at the Auto expo.
According to them, the car will be launched probably in Jan 2017.
They also added a suspense element saying, "The KITE 5 will have a feature which no car in it's segment has."
