this is our 4th tata car after 3 indicas. Before purchasing this beast we are very happy with our tata indica dlg turbo which is 2008 model and had clocked 1,32,000 km on odo. The car was still running very smooth and finely after 1,32,000 km. But my father wants to upgrade our indica with new car which have some modern features like steering mounted controls, electronically adjustable orvms , good music system, MID, etc. Our car running was 1500-2000 a month so we need a diesel car . So we got the delivery our beloved tiago on 28th April 2017.
Our budget was of 7 lakh so we consider these cars according to our budget-
1.hyundai grand i10- all the features we need in sportz variant on road price was 7,35,000.My dad was ready to extend budget for grand i10 . But lack of abs on sportz variant changed our views on grand i10.
2. Maruti baleno-my dad love this car look. But delta variant on road price was 8,00,000. And sigma variant was under our budget but it was very basic. So baleno ruled out from our list.
3.Tata Tiago -my dad went to tata showroom where he had seen tata tiago with which he fell in love . He take test drive of diesel tiago which won their heart .
All features we want in xz variant. My like the harman kardon music system very much.[/B]
Booking and delivery-
After selling our beloved tata indica on olx at the cost of 93000 rs . We went to tata motors showroom and booked tata tiago xz without alloy wheels on 1st April 2017. We got delivery of our car on 28th April 2017.
On road price in Amritsar of my car is 6,41,000. We got some freebies from showroom like mud flaps, floor mats. I didn't have purchased any accessories for my car from showroom. Also i had done my car insurance from outside insurance is dep cap type from national insurance costed me around 15k whereas from showroom dep cap insurance costing me around 25k. So i saved 10k bucks from insurance .
At the time of writing this thread my car had clocked 35k on its odo.
Engine and performance:
Car comes with 1.05 revotorq 3 cylinder diesel engine which produces 70ps power and 140nm torque. Engine performance of was good in city. But you may feel this car underpowered on highway if this is not you first car. With city mode it run very good but with eco mode it starts feeling slightly underpowered.
Car giving me 27-28 kmpl mileage with eco mode on highway but with city mode mileage was nearly 22-23 kmpl on highway. In city car gives me 16-18 kmpl.
Xz variant comes with many of the features like cooled glovebox, steering mounted controls, electronically adjustable orvms , day night irvm, central locking with flip key , height adjustable seats , adjustable steering wheel.best feature of this car is its Harman kardon music system with 8 speakers (4 speakers+4 tweeters) sound quality was awesome . Tiago also equipped with good safety features like two airbags, abs with ebd. The build quality of car is also superb.
This car is suitable for 4 people's . For front seats space is good. For back seats 2 people's can sit comfortably but 3 people's feel tight on the back. Boot space of car is also good. 242 litres boot space was usable.
In my opinion this car is value for money package and better than its rivals like celerio,santro etc.
Enjoy the pics of my white beast
