Tata Zica Rechristened as Tiago
The Zica hatchback has now been rechristened as Tiago by Tata Motors
Prior to its official unveil in December, Tata Motors christened its Kite hatchback as
Zica. Unfortunately, Tata was forced to rename their upcoming offering as coincidentally
it shared the name with a virus that has affected million of people in South America.
Soon after the car maker decided to rename the Zica, they launched a website where
the public was asked to vote for the name they like. With the contest, Tata was able to
narrow down to three names – Civet, Adore and Tiago. Of these three, Tiago has finally
been chosen now. Interestingly, Tata Motors' brand ambassador Lionel Messi's son's
name is Thiago.
Set to replace the aging Indica, the Tiago will be launched in petrol as well as diesel
variants. It makes 85PS of power and 114Nm of torque from a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol
mill. Unlike the Zest and the Bolt, the Tiago will be naturally aspirated and not
turbocharged. The Tiago will also come with an all-new 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbo diesel
that makes 70PS and 140Nm. Both these engines come mated to a 5-speed manual
Tata Motors was expected to launch the car in January but was forced to postpone it
due to the naming issue. With the car now renamed as the Tiago, they are expected to
launch it in a month’s time. The Tata Tiago will go against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki
Celerio and the Hyundai i10.
