Tata Kite production-spec interior snapped

Tata Kite production-spec interior snapped

Tata Motors’ upcoming hatchback has been snapped testing out in the open once again, and this time, the production-spec interiors are clearly visible.
The Kite hatchback has an all-new body shell and has been designed by Tata’s European Technical Centre (TMETC). We’re glad Tata took this step, away from the Indica design language which is now dated & hated.
The test vehicle spotted today reveals the following details about the interiors:
  • Black & grey interiors
  • Steering wheel similar to the Zest
  • Steering mounted audio controls
  • Tweeters on A-pillar
  • Chrome accents on stereo & AC controls
  • Chrome accents on gear knob
  • Black & grey fabric seats
  • Storage cubicle above the glovebox
  • Flat dashboard top
  • Electric ORVM
Powering the Kite twins would be a new 1.05L diesel motor which is a re-engineered, 3-cylinder derivative of the 1.4L DiCOR diesel engine. It was also shown on the Manza Hybrid concept in 2012. This engine will make use of counter balancing shafts, stiffer engine block, reduced friction & vibrations and would produce up to 70 BHP of power.
The petrol motor would also be an all-new 1.2L 3-cylinder motor which could be badged as Revotron. This new engine uses an aluminium block & 4-valves per cylinder with power output expected to be in the range of 75 BHP.
