Based on the same design platform that underpins the carmaker's top-selling hatchback Tiago, the Kite 5 subcompact sedan was first publically displayed at the 2016 Auto Expo. Tata has said that the car has received design inputs from the company's design centres in Pune, Italy, and the UK.

The car's list of safety provisions is likely to include ABS and dual front airbags on select trims.
