There is no doubt in the fact that the Tiago is a leap ahead of every other Tata Motors cars we have witnessed so far. Be it quality, features or the styling this little hatchback surely won hearts. At the recent auto show 2016, Tata Motors showcased the Bolt Sport which was actually a more powerful Bolt variant which not only received a new engine but also some exclusive cosmetic upgrades too on its exterior to differentiate it from the regular variant.
