Tata has launched an updated version of the Tigor in India with prices in the range of Rs 5.20 lakhs to Rs 6.65 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) for the petrol variants and Rs 6.09 lakhs to Rs 7.38 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) for the diesel powered variants. There’s 5 petrol variants, 4 diesel variants and 6 colour options. Tata has now also added a new top-of-the-line XZ+ variant for this car.
This is a mid-life boost for the compact sedan and the updates comes in the form of a new grille, new design for the alloy wheels as well as new tail lamps that now get crystal design elements built into them. Inside, Tata has updated the touchscreen system and the Tigor now gets a 7.0-inch unit with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay compatibility. All variants now get dual front airbags while ABS with EBD and stability control is present on the XZ and XZ+ variants.
The engine options remain unchanged from the outgoing model. There’s the 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol engine that produces 84bhp/114Nm of torque while the oil-burner is a 1.05-litre three-cylinder turbocharged motor that produces 69bhp/140Nm of torque. Both the engines are mated to a five-speed manual gearbox while the petrol engine can also be had with a five-speed AMT (automated manual transmission).
The Tata Tigor in this price range competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 as well as mid-level versions of the Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire and the Maruti Suzuki Swift.
