Tata Motors has recently launched the new Harrier 5-seater premium SUV in the country at Rs 12.69 lakh (ex-showroom). The company is also upgrading its existing model range by offering new safety net. According to Team-BHP, Tata Motors has made ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) as standard in the Tiago and Tigor entry-level cars. The details about the ABS equipped Tiago and Tigor are yet to be listed on the website.
The report further claims that the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor models manufactured from January onwards are equipped with anti-lock braking system as standard in all the variants. The Government of India has made ABS as standard in passenger car and minivan vehicles from April 1, 2019. It is expected the two popular Tata cars will also receive rear parking sensors, seat belt reminder, speed alert, central locking and dual front airbags as standard.
The Tata Tiago is available in XE, XM, XT/XTA, XZ/XZA and XZ+ variants. Previously, only the top-spec variants are equipped with ABS and dual front airbags. On the flip side, the Tigor range includes XE, XM, XZ, XZA and XZ+. Except for the entry-level XE and XM variants, the rest are equipped with ABS system.
After making some updates, Tata Motors has added ABS (anti-lock braking system) as standard across range which includes Tiago, Tigor, Nexon, Hexa and Harrier. ABS is yet to be offered as standard on the Bolt, Zest and Safari Storme. The company is not likely to upgrade the Nano GenX to meet the upcoming BSVI emission norms and will be discontinued from the market. It is expected that the ABS won't be offered on the Nano.
