A new compact car is now going to join the market for the competition, which has been internally codenamed as the Kite. The Tata Kite will be a complete replacement for the very successful Indica hatchback, and we assume that the new model would be out in the market in a few months. As per some new reports, the Tata Kite launch date is likely to fall in June. The Tata Kite (Tata Glade) has been caught testing on several occasions and here, on this page, we have all the Tata Kite images from our burgeoning collection of spy pics. Check out our article below for all the available details of the upcoming Tata small car.
Tata Kite Price in India
We expect the Kite will replace the Indica and hence, might go on sale in a price range of 3.5-4.75 lakhs (ex-showroom). At this price point, the upcoming model will rival the likes of Chevrolet Beat, Maruti Wagon R, Maruti Celerio and the last gen Hyundai i10.

Tata Kite Spied Pictures
Here we are going to show you some of the latest Tata Kite Spy images. As can be noticed on careful observation, the Kite, in all chances, would come with swept back headlamps, a large air-dam, round foglamps, circular pattern for the defogger and a more conventional, and non-Xmas tree design for the taillamps.
Tata kite Design and Looks
However, such clear spy images do drop a few hints, thereby enabling us to guess how the car would look like.
At the front side end, the car could get wraparound headlamps that could looks like same the ones we’ve seen on the Vista. Also, the radiator grille could look a bit like the on the new Zest, and come with a honeycomb structure. Akin to the Bolt, the rear-end of the Kite could do away with the Xmas tree design for the taillamps and instead get more conventionally styled units. Even the bootlid could have a design that would very unlike that of the Indica.
Some of the features of the upcoming car’s interior will include – a Zest-like multi-functional steering wheel. Also, it will borrow power window switches and the gearlever from the Zest. Our guess is that the top-end variant will also get a Zest-like touchscreen 6-speaker audio system. The car’s centre-console will get rectangular aircon vents. However, it would miss out on an automatic climate control system.
Tata Kite technical specifications
The Tata Kite hatchback will go on sale with newly developed engines. The petrol variant of the upcoming car could get a 1.2-litre, four-pot motor with a maximum power of around 75 hp and a peak torque of 120 Nm. Claimed fuel efficiency could be in the region of 20 km/l. The diesel variant, on the other hand, is expected to get a new 1.05-litre, three-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 64 hp and peak torque of 142 Nm. Both the motors could get an automated manual transmission (AMT) along with a standard five-speed manual gearbox.
