JTSV Tiago and Tigor JTP
Tata announced their JT Special Vehicles (JTSV) performance division, a 50:50 collaboration between Jayem Automotive and Tata Motors, and unveiled the first two products from this brand: the Tiago and Tigor JTP. Introductory prices are Rs 6.39 lakh for the Tiago JTP and Rs 7.49 lakh for the Tigor JTP (both ex-showroom).
The JTP cars get a new bumper and grille design, a slightly lowered stance, air-dams on the hood and on the side, a unique paint scheme, and a reworked interior to match. They also get the 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol from the Nexon which has been tweaked to produce 114 PS and 150 Nm. Other mechanical changes include a performance-oriented gearbox, tighter suspension, specially designed wider tyres, a recalibrated steering, and a lower ride height. The brakes, too, have been reworked and the cars come with ABS with EBD and cornering stability control.
