Tata’s Upcoming Kite 5 Sedan’s Top Variant Spied Completely Undisguised
Some recent completely undisguised photos of Tata’s upcoming Kite 5 compact sedan are going rounds on the internet. Tata Motors showcased the compact sedan for the first time at the 2016 Auto expo and after that it was also spotted couple of times being tested on road.
The model which was spotted in this spyshot is most probably the top end trim and it not only gets a completely new exterior paint but also gets plenty of exciting new features. To begin with the top end trim gets stylish diamond cut alloy wheels, side turn indicators integrated on the ORVM’s, a thick chrome line bar in between the two taillamps at the rear. Although the front profile of the sedan is not highlighted in these images but gets the same face like the Tata Tiago hatchback. However we do feel that the top end trim might get projector units as well instead of the regular halogen units. The biggest advantage of the Tata’s new compact sedan is that it promises to offer an impressive amount of boot space at the rear. Tata claims that the Kite 5 compact sedan will offer around 420 Litres of boot space.
Coming to the interior expect the upcoming compact sedan to get a completely an all Black interior with some contrasting colour accents. As far as the drivetrain are concerned expect this new compact sedan to share the same 1.2 Litre Revotron petrol and 1.05 Litre Revotorq diesel engine under the hood. Both this engines will be paired to a 5 speed manual transmission however there can be an AMT transmission on offer as well.
Expect the Tiago based compact sedan to hit the showrooms in mid 2017 and wit will take on some other rivals like the Honda Amaze and upcoming Chevrolet Beat Essentia sedan.

Tata Kite 5 Launch Pushed Back To Year 2017
According to a latest reports on ET Auto Tata Motors has decided not to launch the Tata Kite 5 sedan this year and instead pushed back the launch date to year 2017.
The reason for such a delay is because Tata Motors wants to reevaluate their product portfolio for the Indian market. The officials also want to make some changes to the overall design as well which includes improving the quality of the products and also minimize the overall cost of these upcoming product by talking with the local vendors.
Tata Motors have realized the aggressive pricing of product is the key point which draws crowd towards any product. Their recently launched budget hatchback Tiago did really well in the Indian market because of this strategy. Thus Tata motors is looking for possibilities where they could actually bring the cost down and offer an aggressive product to their Indian customers while maintaining the overall quality as well at the same time.
The Indian Auto manufacturer will thus follow the same strategy for their Kite 5 compact sedan as well as the Nexon compact SUV. There is a fair chance that the upcoming Kite 5 sedans prices will undercut some other compact sedans available in the Indian market like the Swift Dzire or the Hyundai Xcent. If thing goes according to plan then there is no doubt that the Tiago will be the cheapest compact sedan of the Indian Auto market.
