Recently launched Tata Tiago NRG is a direct competitor to Ford’s Freestyle which already cements his footprints in the compact crosshatch market. And today we’re gonna compare this two crosshatches to see which one is best for you.
First of all, we’ll see what are the dimensions of these two crosshatches are.

As you all know these two crosshatches are based on their hatchback counterparts, so the styling gets similarities pretty much in every way. So what are the changes, well basically these two get beefier SUV-ish design looks? And the results come with a marginal increase in exterior dimensions.
Take a look at Tata Tiago NRG for example, the NRG is 47 mm longer,18 mm wider, 52 mm taller and has increased ground clearance by 10 mm but the wheelbase is the same as the hatchback.
And as you can see it is the Ford Freestyle that is the largest of these two crosshatches with a little more ground clearance and a little more kerb weight than the Tata Tiago NRG.

So what we learned from here is that Ford Freestyle is much more powerful than the Tata Tiago NRG in both petrol and diesel engines. The Ford Freestyle’s both petrol and diesel engines have more power and torque than Tata Tiago NRG’s engines which come with less power and torque figures.
