Tata is gearing up to launch a crossover version of the Tiago hatchback called the Tiago NRG. It is expected to be available in a single variant and could be launched later this month.

The Tiago NRG is slightly longer, wider and taller than the standard Tiago. It measures 3793 mm in length, 1,665 mm in width and 1,587 mm in height. The wheelbase (2,400 mm) is identical to the hatchback but the ground clearance has increased to 180 mm.

Images revealed through a leaked product briefing document suggest that the Tiago NRG will get a black body kit featuring dual-tone bumpers with integrated silver scuff plates, side skirts and black trim around the wheel arches. The front grille along with the roof, ORVMs and the B-pillar have been blacked out. It also has black roof rails and a roof spoiler. The tail gate has a thick black trim with the Tiago badge on the left and NRG logo on the right. The car comes fitted with smoked headlamps and rides on 4-spoke 14-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.

The interior looks similar to the Tiago except for the orange and silver inserts. It has a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel as well as a twin-pod instrument cluster with silver surrounds and an MID in the centre. The seats have fixed headrests and are wrapped in grey fabric upholstery with orange highlights. It comes with a 6-way adjustable driver seat with height adjustment. The dashboard houses a cooled glove box and a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, which is connected to an 8-speaker Harman audio system.

The Tiago NRG will be available in both petrol and diesel versions. The 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine makes 84 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm. The 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder diesel puts out 69 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 140 Nm @ 1,800-3,000 rpm. Both engines will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Safety features like dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and Corner Stability Control will be offered as standard.

The Tiago NRG will be available in 3 dual-tone colour options - Malabar Silver, Canyon Orange and Fuji White. It will compete with the Ford Freestyle in the Indian market.
