Tata Tigor launched at Rs 4.7 lakh
Tata Motors has launched the Tigor sub-4 metre sedan at a starting price of Rs 4.7 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It shares its underpinnings with the Tiago and comes with an enhanced list of features over the hatchback it is based on. Official bookings for the Tigor went live on March 20, 2017, at a refundable amount of Rs 5,000.
In terms of looks, the Tigor has Tata Motors’ Impact design language. The Tigor gets a dual-tone front bumper, a revamped honeycomb grille design with chrome-garnished bottom lip that neatly stretches all the way into the headlight enclosures, which feature smoked projector lamps and a dual-barrel layout. At the back, the Tigor gets LED-powered taillights and an LED stop lamp placed above the rear windscreen. While the petrol-powered top-spec variant gets 15-inch alloy wheels, its diesel counterpart makes do with the same 14-inch ones as the Tiago.
The Tigor comes loaded with class-leading features. It boasts a 5.0-inch Harman-engineered touchscreen infotainment tech which is paired with an eight-speaker (4 speakers + 4 tweeters) sound system. The infotainment display acts as the monitor for the reverse camera, supports video playback, has voice command recognition, GPS navigation via NaviMaps App and SMS readout functionality.
Other features include dual 12V charging ports and a rear armrest with integrated cupholders. The most astonishing feature of the Tigor is its boot space of 419 litres.
Powering the Tigor are the same 3-pot petrol and diesel motors as the ones found under the hood of the Tiago. While the 1.2-litre petrol engine generates 85PS/114Nm, the diesel-powered combustion chamber puts out 70PS/140Nm. Both the engines come paired to a five-speed manual transmission.
The Tata Tigor’s list of rivals includes the Honda Amaze, Ford Figo Aspire, Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, Volkswagen Ameo, Hyundai Xcent and the Tata Zest.
