Tata Tiago vs Hyundai Grand i10 Comparison

Overall, the Tiago diesel is the clear winner of this shootout. Firstly, it is more than 1 Lakh rupees cheaper than the Grand i10 and in spite of that has many more features than the Grand i10. Secondly, it far better ride-handling than the Grand i10. And thirdly, it is almost as good as the Grand i10 in terms of performance, refinement, space & comfort. All this more than makes up for Tiago's shortcomings at the Service Station making it a better value proposition than the Grand i10. Comparing the petrol & diesel Tiagos, the petrol powered variant loses out on two crucial parameters, namely drivability and fuel economy making the diesel variant a much better choice.

Performance & Drivability:
Petrol:

Making matters worse for the Tiago is its 1080 kg kerb weight, which blunts its performance across the rev range in comparison to the 935 kg, Grand i10.

Power (PS@rpm): Tiago – 85@6000, Grand i10 – 83@6000

Torque to Weight Ratio (Nm/ton): Tiago – 106, Grand i10 - 122 (15% difference)

Diesel:
Both cars are powered by small displacement, 3-cylinder engines, which are a bit underpowered to propel 1000 kg+ kerb weights of the Tiago's and Grand i10. Drivability in city traffic is reasonably good in both cars. However, they feel out-of-breath while trying to overtake heavy vehicles on the highways, Tiago more so than the Grand i10 . The Grand i10 also feels a bit more refined than the Tiago's especially at higher revs.

Power (PS@rpm): Tiago – 70@4000, Grand i10 - 71@4000

Fuel Efficiency: In our real world tests, both the diesel cars returned identical fuel-efficiency. Amongst the petrols, the Tiago was half a kmpl more efficient than the Grand i10 manual and almost 2 kmpl more efficient than the Grand i10 automatic

ARAI Mileage (kmpl): Tiago (petrol, manual) – 23.84, Grand i10 (petrol, manual) – 18.9, Grand i10 (petrol, automatic) - 16.95, Tiago (diesel, manual) – 27.28, Grand i10 (diesel, manual) - 24

The Grand i10 also has slightly better ergonomics, which is especially evident on longer journeys. Both cars have equally spacious cabins with adequate space for four adults and an occasional fifth occupant. Tiago has 242 liters of boot-space, which is marginally less than the Grand i10's 256 liter capacity.

Width (mm): Tiago – 1647, Grand i10 – 1660
Height (mm): Tiago – 1535, Grand i10 – 1520

Ride Quality & Handling:
Tata has done a fantastic job with the dynamics of the Tiago. It rides and handles significantly better than the Grand i10. Grand i10 tends to get caught out by sharp bumps and series of undulations, but the Tiago takes them all in its stride. Grand i10 has much more body roll and a vague, lifeless steering in contrast to the quick turn in and enthusiastic cornering manners of the Tiago.

Ground Clearance (mm): Tiago – 170, Grand i10 – 165
Tyre Size: Tiago – 175/65R14, Grand i10 - 165/65R14

Reliability and After Sales Service:
Tata has lost a lot of ground to Hyundai over the last ten years in providing a hassle free ownership experience to its customers. Firstly, Hyundai's products themselves have proven to be much more reliable and trouble free compared to Tata's products, which have been riddled with niggling issues. Secondly, Hyundai's service stations are run as tight ships compared to the unprofessionally run Tata dealerships. This has left a bad after-taste with old customers leading them to stay away from the brand. Over the past 2-3 years Hyundai has also overtaken Tata in terms of sales and service coverage across the country.

Resale after 5 to 7 years est. (Lakh):
Grand i10 is bound to hold fairly better resale value than the Tiago, thanks to Hyundai's fantastic reputation for product reliability and service support that has been built and maintained since the launch of the Santro, way back in 1998.
Tiago XZ (Petrol manual) – 2.65, Grand i10 Sportz (Petrol, manual) – 3.19, Grand i10 Asta (Petrol, automatic) – 3.86, Tiago XZ (Diesel manual) – 3.30, Grand i10 Sportz (Diesel, manual) - 4.32

Total Cost of Ownership (in Lakh): (Vehicle Price + Fuel Cost – Resale Value)
Tiago's unbelievably low price and better fuel economy more than makes up for its comparatively lower resale value relative to the Grand i10. Both the petrol and diesel Tiagos are almost 1 Lakh rupees cheaper in terms of Total Cost of Ownership than the equivalent Grand i10.
Tiago (Petrol manual) – 5.67, Grand i10 (Petrol manual) – 6.66, Grand i10 (Petrol automatic) – 7.69, Tiago (Diesel manual) – 5.06, Grand i10 (Diesel manual) - 5.99

Verdict:
The Tiago diesel is the clear winner of this shootout. Firstly, it is more than 1 Lakh rupees cheaper than the Grand i10 and in spite of that has many more features than the Grand i10. Secondly, it far better ride-handling than the Grand i10. And thirdly, it is almost as good as the Grand i10 in terms of performance, refinement, space & comfort. All this more than makes up for Tiago's shortcomings at the Service Station making it a better value proposition than the Grand i10. Comparing the petrol & diesel Tiagos, the petrol powered variant loses out on two crucial parameters, namely drivability and fuel economy making the diesel variant a much better choice.
