Tata Motors is gearing up for the launch of their two JTP models – Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP performance models on 26th October, 2018. The Tiago JTP hatchback and the Tigor JTP sub 4 metre sedan were unveiled earlier this year at the 2018 Auto Expo, New Delhi held in February.

Both the JTP models will have dimensions similar to the standard models. However, the JTP models – the Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP sports new 15 inche alloy wheels with wider tube. Besides that the JTP models will come with a lower ride height and adjustable suspension to render sportier experience to the driver.
