Tata Motors seems to have some really big plans for the Indian market. At the recently-concluded Auto Expo, the home-grown carmaker showcased its wide range of new products that will go on sale in coming years. While the company aims to foray into the premium SUV and hatchback segment with the all-new H5X and 45X respectively, it will introduce the performance-oriented Tigor JTP and Tiago JTP models. The carmaker will also unveil its all-new premium sedan at the Geneva Motor Show next month (March, 2018).
Besides the aforementioned products, Tata will soon bring in an accessorized version of its popular Tiago hatchback. Called the Tata Tiago Aktiv, this new variant was recently spotted at a dealership. In fact, the carmaker has also listed the new kit on its official website.

Since the Tiago Aktiv will derive its power from the same powertrains that do duty in the regular Tiago, we expect its mileage too to be similar. While the petrol engine will return over 23kmpl, the diesel model’s mileage will be over 27kmpl. Check Out – Tamo Racemo Explain In 8 Quick Points
