Tata Motors is readying a twin of its Tiago hatchback, but with an extended boot, for a March launch to take on Maruti Suzuki’s upcoming new-generation Dzire and a facelifted version of Hyundai Motor’s Xcent. Having wrested the No. 4 position in the Indian passenger vehicle market in 2016, thanks to Tiago’s success, Tata Motors is now looking to unseat Mahindra & Mahindra from the third spot. It launched the Hexa crossover earlier this month and has plans to drive in two more fresh products in 2017, which industry experts say may prove to be a turnaround year for the company. While launching the Hexa, Managing Director Guenter Butschek said 2016 was a milestone year for Tata Motors and that it expected the products in the pipeline to help extend the “good momentum we are in”.
