Tata Tiago facelift is expected to be launched before July 2019.
Launched in April 2016, the Tata Tiago has been one of the most successful models for the homegrown passenger vehicle market. The 5-seater hatchback has crossed the 2 lakh sales milestone in the Indian market. The company is constantly selling around 8,000 units of the hatchback in the highly competitive market. In order to remain stable in the middle of rising competition, Tata Motors is aiming to give a mid-life facelift to its entry-level hatchback. In fact, the Tata Tiago 2019 facelift model testing has also been started on Indian roads.
Likely to be launched before the arrival of 45X hatchback in mid-2019, the Tata Tiago 2019 will come with standard safety pack and some structural changes. With these changes, it will be compatible with the upcoming safety and crash test norms applicable from July 2019 and October 2019 respectively. The facelift model will receive subtle design changes in the form of revised grille, new bumpers, new alloys and new paint schemes.
The Tata Tiago range is available in 2 engine options – 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel. The updated model will continue with the existing range. The company had launched the Tiago NRG Cross-hatch and performance oriented Tiago JTP. Both these models are fitted with all the required safety features and are not likely to be part of mid-life facelift.
Here’s everything about Tata Tiago in quick points –

8. Tata Tiago 2019 Exterior
With Tiago hatchback, Tata Motors had introduced its new design philosophy – IMPACT (Immediate IMPACT at first sight, Lasting IMPACT over time”). The design language was later offered on the Nexon compact SUV and the Tigor sub-compact sedan. It is based on the thoroughly modified XO platform and has been designed with inputs from Tata’s Pune, UK and Italy design studios.
It is expected that the Tata Tiago facelift styling will be inspired with the evolved IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy, which recently debuted in the Harrier SUV. The spy images reveal that the Tiago facelift will share some of the styling cues from the upcoming 45X premium hatchback. It features a wider version of Tata’s Humanity line nose and newly developed alloys. The hatchback is expected to receive new bumper, revised headlamp and tail-lights and new body colour options. The current model rides on 14-inch alloy wheels shod with 175/65 R14 front and rear tubeless tyres.
9. Tata Tiago 2019 Interior
Not major changes will be made to the interior of the Tiago hatchback. The current model misses out on touchscreen infotainment system. It is expected that the Tiago facelift could receive the Harman sourced touchscreen infotainment system, which will be compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with USB, Bluetooth and AUX-in. The lower-spec variants will get the existing Harman sourced music system with Bluetooth, USB and AUX-in support. The Tata Tiago 2019 will retain the dual-tone black and beige interior scheme with dashboard integrated console and rectangular AC vents. The Tiago hatchback offers segment-first multi-drive mode – City and Eco, Juke-Car app and Smart phone enabled Turn-By-Turn navigation app.
In terms of safety and security, the Tiago facelift will get dual front airbags, 9th generation ABS (anti-lock braking system) with EBD (electronic brake-force distribution), rear parking sensors, corner stability control, seat-belt reminder, speed alert and ISOFIX Child Seat anchors, etc as standard safety features.
