Also agree on the accessories shouldn't be the deciding factor rather than the car and it's drivability itself. But it depends on what you see a car, as a person may see it a as a means to transport from a point to another, in which case features and VFM is also important. Can understand where they come from, but can't agree
Agreed.. But the JTP is not a point A - B car, and if that's what one is looking for , then the JTP is the wrong car. A WagonR 1.2 will fit the bill perfectly there. Plain and simple

If you are asking because you are thinking about buying a 1st gen pre-owned City or the Tiago JTP - go for the Tiago JTP. You'll also get the new car smell better peace of mind when going on longish drives out of the urban area. No matter what brand it is, a 10+ year old machine can have small issues that can be mood-kills. Nothing to do with brand etc. Its a machine and they have a prime in their life that isn't exactly after 10+ years.



Oh and the blow-off valve and exhaust sounds are going to get you addictive attention on the streets .
I am sorry to say that I do not agree with your statement, "Its a machine and they have a prime in their life that isn't exactly after 10+ years". I have a 18 year old Indica petrol. It can still give a run for the money to other cars when it comes to acceleration. And it's not even turbo charged!

I have had a couple of test drives and it's a stunner. I was wondering if somebody could shed some light about the safety of the car. The standard dual airbag system aside, is it a solid enough car to handle, God forbid, a high speed mishap on the highways? This is going to be the first car purchase for me and while I like everything that this offers, I am a little concerned about the safety aspect.

Of the smaller cars, I would consider the Tiago to be one of the better builds, keeping the price factor in mind. The JTP is no ordinary Tiago and has the suspension tuned to its character, not just a power boost.

Since you mention that this is your first car, I'm unable to comprehend your skill levels. As long as you drive sanely and are aware of other things on the road, you and the car will be fine.

In the unfortunate event of a mishap, you will still be safer in the Tiago than other cars and I expect minimal structural damage too. Tatas of late are known for their build quality, much more than anything else.

Happy and safe driving.

No first-hand experience on the safety standards, but the perceived feel of safety was pretty good; when I did the TD, it felt like a tank when compared to the Swift I was driving. The car had more of an European feel than Asian / Japanese

Of course. I sold my previous car last month with 0 issues & just a month after a fun Goa trip with family. So I totally stand by the long life of Tata cars.

My point was different altogether. If I was shopping right now for a car after 9 years of excellent companionship, would I buy the same car I just sold? Or would I buy a new car giving more peace of mind?

Would you buy that same Indica V2 at 18 years of age if it was not yours and owned by someone else during this time? I'm quite sure you wouldn't. And you shouldn't either. Murphy's law is always around the next corner!

In the price bracket & segment of hatchbacks (and even one above I'm sure) its the strongest bet when it comes to in-cabin safety. There are plenty examples of accidents where the cabin hasn't even budged and all passengers have survived without even a scratch. Its a solid car. Have 1 Tiago and 1 Tigor in close family. One has been in an accident & has recovered fully from it. Can swear by it.

Well my first buy, but not the first car I would be driving and certainly not the first Tata. Have driven a dicor engine Tata indica and that was a crazy one too. I love the tigo jtp, no two ways about it. If at all I don't go ahead with this as my first choice it would be more to do with the fact that I would go with an automatic transmission like say a Hyundai Venue so that the better half would be able to drive as well.

Here are the initial observations. Having driven many cars including some on Autobahns in Germany, I can clearly say that this is the best car which for this price !! Thank you Tata and JTP for delivering such a great vehicle which makes it affordable for someone like me to enjoy what a sports car feels like, if not completely in the sports league.


A salute to a great automaker. With that I rest my thoughts
Totally agree with you. I am still enjoying my 18 year old petrol Indica. Now eyeing Tiago JTP. However, would like to see and drive Altroz when its launched. I hope they launch JTP version of it !

I am hoping i will be able to experience the same (or more) kind of pull from the Tiago JTP, the midrange and inital torque i mean. My Indica had a sweet spot between ~70kmph, i know its not that fast, but the engine and exhaust notes at that speed were sweet and just tapping the accelerator from there on and going past 100 was the best part for me with that car.
Even I own a petrol Indica 2001 model. Once past 60 kms/hr, it becomes a beast. Third gear is tall and very useful while overtaking. I am all smiles then.

So in essence JTP twins are the regular versions tuned by professionals just that it’s done at the manufacturing level and street legal! I hope some regular Tiago/Tigor owner one day decide to plonk a Nexon engine and tune the suspension, it will be so much fun to read that thread and to compare with a JTP!
Tiago/Tigor JTP cars actually have Nexon engines.

Can you please throw some light on as to why should a turbo charged vehicle be kept in idle for at least 30 seconds before switching off?

Spotted my 1st JTP on the road today at Bandra - Mumbai.

MH 03 DA 5009 - WHITE Tiago JTP.

Something looked striking and distinctly different in my ORVM. Even though it was dark, the white shade seemed to be eye-catching. One glance at the red ORVMs and I knew this is the special beast. Let it pass gracefully and the rear looked equally striking, especially with the dual exhaust tips! The driver was driving quite sedately, but the car definitely looked the part!

Do the Tiago/Tigor JTP cars have a turbo timer?

A red Tata Tiago JTP is on sale in Bangalore. Asking price is Rs. 6.80 lakh. Since the car has been driven for just over 4,500 km and has a Feb 2019 registration, the deal looks really good to me. Sadly, I have budget constraints at the moment and am thus looking for something around the Rs. 5 lakh tag.

Anybody have had a first hand experience with the new JTPs? Does the tiago have a rear parking camera now?

I came across this on CarDekho a couple of days back. Having zero experience in dealing with cars (old / new) I hesitated to proceed. Does one typically have a known mechanic who inspects used cars before negotiating a price? It all feels too risky (to me) and at the same time I feel most new cars are overpriced (IMHO).

Now, Iím just confused and I am wondering if I should wait for bs6 variant to be launched.

I donít think so since the regular Tiago XZ+ doesnít get one either.
