Rumour: Tata Kite 5 compact sedan to launch next month

As per recent media reports, Tata Motors will be launching the Kite 5 compact sedan in March 2017. The automaker hasn't announced an official launch date yet.

The Kite 5 is basically a compact sedan sibling of the Tiago. It is built on the same platform and even borrows various design cues from the hatchback. However, the sedan is expected to get blacked out headlamps with projectors, a steeply sloping roofline at the rear, a stubby boot and a high-mounted LED stop lamp integrated into the roof mounted spoiler.

The 'Kite 5' moniker is actually the name of the concept that was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. The company hasn’t announced the final production badge for the car yet, though earlier reports had suggested that it might be named Viago or Altigo.

Powering the Kite 5's production variants will be the same set of engines that do duty under the Tiago's hood. As a result, a 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel and a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol are the expected engine options.
