If the latest reports on the web are anything to go by, Tata Motors Bolt hatchback is getting ready for a facelift. The Bolt facelift is expected to make its India debut next year.
A MotorOctane report reveals that Tata is readying an upgraded version of its Bolt hatchback for the Indian market, and it would see the light of the day sometime in next year. In the facelifted avatar, Bolt is likely to receive styling changes and feature upgrade as the competition in the market is increasing.
As of now, other details of the upgraded Bolt are not known. Tata is also likely to roll out Bolt Sport, which was unveiled at Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. It has also been learnt that Bolt diesel AMT is also on the cards.
Currently, the petrol variant of Bolt gets 1.2-litre Revotron turbo-charged engine, which is tuned to generate 84bhp at 5,000rpm and a torque of 140Nm of 1,750-3,500rpm and the diesel model packs 1.3-litre Quadrajet motor that can generate 73bhp and peak torque of 190Nm. Both the engines come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Bolt, which competes with the likes of other cars in its segment such as Maruti Swift, Hyundai i20 and Volkswagen Polo, gets dual front airbags and ABS with EBD and CSC (Corner Stability Control).
