The Tata Kite 5, or the production version of it, is still to hit the roads. When it goes on sale however (later this year), it will be one of prettiest compact sedans. However, Tarun Samuel has already imagined how the cute Kite 5 would look as a track-focused monster. The fender flares, body-kit, blue accents, dual exhaust tips, gloss black roof and the smoked headlamps do look arresting, but nonetheless, its the rear end which holds a surprise.
Now the Kite 5 is destined to be a compact sedan, but in the digital realm, anything is possible. So what we have here is a Kite 5 that’s been converted into a large-ish hatchback (hot), and left us wondering if it’d ever leave the factory gates in this beautiful guise, minus these sporting embellishments of course. Visually, it even makes the Tiago feel a bit shortchanged, and in production trim, and should be a healthy contender as an Elite I20 rivalling premium hatchback.
Upon launch, the Kite 5 will be powered by the same, engines from the Tiago – the all-new 1.2-litre, three cylinder Revotron petrol unit and the 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel unit; both strapped to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. An AMT option is also in the works for both the Kite 5 and Tiago. And no, those massive wheels (Vossen?) harbouring disc brakes at four corners will not make it to production, so stop staring!
