Tata has launched the crossover version of the Tiago hatchback. The car was introduced in 2018 and was taken off the shelves after the BS6 norms kicked in. Tata has now updated the crossover with a BS6 engine and has brought back the rugged hatchback in the market. The car can be booked and bought at all Tata dealerships.
Commenting on NRG’s distinctive design and capabilities, Mr Rajan Amba, Vice-President, Sales, Marketing & Customer Care, PVBU, Tata Motors said, “We are excited to bring to you this awesome version of our much-loved hatchback, the Tata Tiago. Truly energetic just like its name, the NRG fits well with the growing trend of bringing to market more SUV like vehicles. It is not only strong on the exterior but is feature-loaded & stylish in the interior, and is an absolute pleasure to drive with enhanced abilities to take over rough terrains. Crowning the Tiago range, the NRG will continue to help us increase our brand presence. We are confident that our customers will appreciate the new Tiago NRG as much as its predecessor.”
