The car also gets faux skid plates at the rear. The car gets tweaked suspension and the car now has higher ground clearance than its sibling Tiago.

Coming to the engine and power, the car is powered by 1047 CC diesel engine and 1199 CC petrol engine. While diesel mill generates power of 70 bhp and torque of 140 Nm, the petrol variant churns out power of 85 bhp and generates torque of 114 Nm.
Below are the technical specifications of the car and its comparison with Tata Tiago
Tiago NRG would fight the likes of Ford Freestyle and Maruti CelerioX. Tiago NRG is offered in Canyon Orange, Malabar Silver and Fuji White color schemes.
Some of the customers have got confused with DurAlloys with Alloy wheels, while the fact is that these DurAlloy wheels are designed in such a way that steel rims along with wheel caps makes the rims look like alloy wheels. This smart advertising strategy has got some buyers confused and they have bought the car thinking that the wheels are alloy wheels.
