Tata Tigor, the newbie from the Indian automaker is all set for launch on March 29. The style-back sub-4 metre sedan was recently unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Bookings for the same began a while ago at a token amount of Rs 10,000. Based on the Tata’s IMPACT design philosophy the Tigor is the latest one to command attention.
The Tigor from Tata Motors will continue to be offered with the latest Revotron technology engine options in petrol as well as diesel guise. The petrol variant will be powered by a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine that generates 84bhp of power and 114Nm of torque. The diesel on the other hand gets a Revotorq 1.05-litre engine that generates 69bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. To enhance the driving experience, the vehicle is offered in two drive modes – Eco and City. Switch to the Eco mode and you get a good fuel efficiency figure, while the City mode, as the name suggests offers a fine balance between performance and fuel economy.
The upcoming Tigor, following the Tata tradition, is generous in providing space for its occupants. With regard to dimensions, the style-back measures 3992mm in length, 1677mm in width and 1537mm in height and has a ground clearance of 170mm. Wheelbase of 2450mm brings in more legroom for passengers.
The IMPACT design philosophy has worked wonders for the Hexa SUV as well as the Tiago hatchback. The front sports gets smoked projector headlamps and Tata’s signature grille. The vehicle also gets dual-tone bumpers and dual LED tail lamps. As for the interior, Tigor gets a dual-tone upholstery, customizable air vents and luxurious patterned seats with bolsters. The vehicle will also get Harman infotainment system that takes care of entertainment needs.
Post launch, the vehicle will compete against the likes of Xcent and Elite i20 from Hyundai as well as Dzire and Swift from Maruti Suzuki. On the pricing aspect, the upcoming Tigor will be priced lower than the Zest sedan, which means that it will soon emerge as a popular seller like its smaller sibling, the Tiago. The Tigor’s good looks and impressive features will undoubtedly bag it a considerable market share in its segment in this country.
