The interiors of this much awaited car from the Tata Motors’ stable have been recently spotted and this has definitely got car fans in a tizzy. This comes after the release of the video with a sneak peek of the Kite.
The Tata Kite is definitely one of the upcoming trendsetters to look out for, according to auto industry experts and its interiors have recently been spotted while the car did its testing rounds. Tata Motors recently enlisted global football great Lionel Messi as its brand ambassador. This made the company release an engaging video of the football icon where there was a teeny weenie look at the upcoming Kite hatchback which is being eagerly awaited by millions of company loyalists worldwide. Exterior portions of the vehicle were displayed in the video and hot on the heels of the same, come the interiors.
The dashboard of the Tata Kite is not similar to the dashboard and central console you may have witnessed on the Tata Bolt. However, the dashboard should be sporting black with highlights that will eventually make it a little similar to the bolt. The central console should be oval shaped and the air conditioning vents will be integrated for higher variants and there may even be a touch screen infotainment system. The Tata Kite will probably be sourcing this infotainment system from Harman. The steering wheel looks quite similar to the current lineup of cars from Tata.
The Tata Kite anyway possesses the signature honeycomb grille or the smiley exterior that Tata is famous for in addition to an underlining chrome strip. The Kite will not come with projector type headlamps and will have diamond-like taillights with a little crease covering the length of the boot-lid. The Kite will make use of the same 1.2 liter petrol Revotron engine as the Bolt along with the 1.3 liter diesel engine. This will be the most affordable vehicle to come with a turbocharged engine, thereby competitively underscoring its own elder sibling, the Bolt.
The prices of the Kite should make it an even yummier proposition for customers with industry figures predicting them within INR 3.5-3.75 lakh, a segment that will put it in direct competition with the Hyundai i10 and even the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R along with a host of other entry level hatchbacks.
