The festive season has witnessed fresh product launches in the country. Two new compact sedans, namely the Tata Tigor and the Honda Amaze have been recently launched with a fresh set of cosmetic and feature upgrades. Read below to learn more about the key difference between the two cars.
The new Tata Tigor has received its first major update a year and a half after it was first launched. This is a mid-life boost for the compact sedan and the updates come 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.
The new Honda Amaze now borrows styling cues from the latest generation of the Civic and the Accord. As compared to its predecessor, the new one gets a bigger hood which gives the car a more defined shape, along with LED headlamps, front fog lamps and 15-inch alloy wheels. The rear tail lamps have also been revised for freshness.
As for the interior, the new Tata Tigor gets an updated seven-inch unit with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay compatibility. Depending on the variant, the vehicle gets different combinations for the AC vent surround and fascia bezel. The top-spec petrol variant gets titanium colour faux leather seats.
The new Honda Amaze borrows a few styling elements from its older siblings namely the Jazz, BR-V and the City. Speaking of features, it gets automatic climate control, electrically operated boot, engine start/stop button and welcome lights. The CVT option is also offered with paddle shifters.
The new Tigor continues to be powered by existing engine options. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol engine generates 84bhp/114Nm of torque while the oil-burner gets a 1.05-litre three-cylinder turbocharged motor that generates 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).
Honda Amaze offers a CVT option in petrol as well as diesel engine options. The petrol version gets a 1.2-litre four-cylinder unit that generates 87bhp of power and 109Nm of torque. The diesel version, on the other hand, gets the older 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit that generates 100bhp/200Nm of torque.
