Tata Motors is busy developing the facelift versions of the Tiago, Tigor and Nexon which will soon hit the automotive market. The spy shots of the facelifted models have been already surfaced online. The reports claim that the Tiago and Tigor facelifts will be succeeded by the Nexon facelift. The new variants will offer enhanced performance and high efficiency with improved power figures.
All the facelifted version will be powered by a BS-VI compliant engine. As a result, the prices of cars will be increased. The prices of the new engine will be more than the current unit, expected to be around Rs 2.5 lakh. The new emission norm will come into impact on 1st April 2020 so, the automotive companies are rapidly working to update the current motors to BS VI engine. Maruti Suzuki has officially reported that they will halt the production of diesel variants from 1st April 2020.
Petrol variants have a huge demand in the Indian market and the new rule will boost the price of the diesel variant. So, introducing a renewed diesel engine could be a bad idea for automotive makers. The customers will not prefer paying more for the diesel variant when the petrol version is available at the same cost tag. Hence, Tata has not yet confirmed the introduction of an updated BS6 diesel unit for the popular Tiago and Tigor.
Currently, Tiago and Tigor are offered in 1.05-litre diesel engine while the Bolt and Zest come with a 1.3-litre diesel unit. According to the latest report, the company can stop the production of the smallest 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel engine. The facelifted variant can be introduced in a petrol unit. The new variant is expected to get BSVI compliant 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Revotron petrol engine that makes 83bhp of power and a 114Nm max torque.
The new engine can be combined with a 5-speed manual transmission and AMT also on offer. The diesel engine of the popular Nexon and Harrier SUV will be also updated as per BS VI norms. Nexon runs on a 1.5-litre engine whereas Harrier offered in the 2-litre unit. Nexon will be available in different variant choices. It will be launched in both petrol and diesel variants.
The all-new Nexon can be available in 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron petrol engine making 108bhp and 1.5-litre oil burner Revotorq engine which will produce 108bhp/ 260Nm. The company is also expected to offer the upcoming facelifted version in CNG fuel option. Tata is also developing the all-new electric versions of the Tiago and Tigor which will be announced later in future.
