Rumour: Tiago JTP will have more than 108 BHP


Tata Motors is gearing up to launch the Tiago JTP this festive season. According to a media report, the hatchback is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre, turbocharged petrol engine from the Nexon, but in a higher state of tune.

In the Nexon, the engine produces 108 BHP @ 5,000 rpm and 170 Nm @ 1,750-4,000 rpm and comes mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT. However, the Tiago JTP is likely to get a revised 5-speed manual transmission.

The Tiago JTP is expected to get lowered springs and a reduced ride height. Spy images indicate that the car could get wider tires compared to the standard Tiago.

In terms of styling, the Tiago JTP is likely to feature a new front bumper, a bonnet vent, a dual-tone rear bumper and a rear fog lamp. Test mules have been spotted sporting a twin-barrel exhaust tip, as well as black ORVMs, rear spoiler and roof panel. It is expected to come with black interiors with a large touchscreen infotainment system.
