Are you waiting for the launch of the all-new Tata NRG? Well, this is your lucky day! Sipradi Trading Pvt. Ltd, the authorized distributors of TATA motors in Nepal, has officially announced the launch of Tata NRG. You know what that means, right? It means that you can grab your very own NRG from the nearest Tata Showroom.
Moreover, you can choose between two different engine variants: Petrol and Diesel. As of this writing, you will be able to get your hands on the petrol variant. However, Tata NRG Diesel variant will few more weeks to hit the showrooms. As for the price, Tata NRG price in Nepal for the petrol variant is Rs. 29,50,000.
Tata NRG is an entry-level CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) that combines the features of both SUV and a hatchback. Talking about the performance, the 1.2-liter Revotron powers the petrol variant that churns out 84bhp and 114Nm for the petrol variant. Likewise, the1.0-liter Revotorq engine powers the diesel variant that puts out 69bhp and 140Nm. Although, the performance numbers are very similar to the standard Tata Tiago. Sadly, it is mated to a five-speed manual transmission, without any options for an automatic transmission.
Tata NRG Features
Let’s talk about the exterior first. Tata NRG is taller, wider, and tougher than the standard hatchback. Moreover, NRG gets major styling updates including a black plastic cladding around the bumpers, side skirts, and wheel arches. Along with it, it rides on newly designed 14-inch alloy wheels, faux skid plates at the rear and black finished roof rails. Accentuating its crossover character, there is the plastic cladding on the doors and tailgate. All these updates add to the Tata NRG that measures significantly more than the standard Tiago.
Same goes for the interior, the cabin and dashboard layout still resemble the Tiago XZ but there are some cosmetic differentiators. Like, the silver accents on the AC vent, central console, gear lever, and orange stripes on the denim upholstery. These are the little details only unique to the NRG. Although, it also borrows from other Tata cars like the infotainment unit, borrowed directly from the Tigor.
Additionally, Tata has covered almost everything, even the safety features. You get standard stuff like ABS with EBD, Corner Stability Control, Reverse Parking Assist, Speed Sensing Auto Door Lock, Emergency Assist, Flip Key Remote and many more. And don’t forget the airbags, you will get driver airbag. But airbags are lacking in the rear and side, which is a bummer.

Tata NRG vs Maruti Suzuki Celerio X. Who’s the real winner?
Compare the Tata NRG to the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X, both of them are competing against one another. If given the ultimate question over NRG or Celerio X, I think I might go with the Tata NRG. It is definitely a better option. As Celerio X doesn’t come with as many upgrades as NRG. Furthermore, the ground clearance is still the same with minor cosmetic changes. But that’s not all! Tata also wins over the build quality which isn’t a big surprise.
So, if you are confused between Celerio X and NRG then, I suggest you, go for the Tata NRG. Its a much better choice that comes with much better features.
Okay, let’s address the elephant in the room. Yes, Tata Tiago and Tata NRG have an uncanny resemblance. But that is given since both belong to the same Tiago line up. Consider NRG as the official upgrade to the Tiago legacy.
You get superior handling, good mileage, and great stability. Good features are carried over from the Tiago over to NRG. Moreover, you do get cosmetic upgrades and some changes here and there, while retaining the same underpinnings as the standard hatchback. Tata calls the NRG an “Urban Tough Roader”. So, you get a basic idea that the machine is built for!
