Latest On Tata Tigor

Tata has launched the Tigor facelift in India with prices starting from Rs 5.20 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). On the occasion, the homegrown carmaker also introduced a new top-of-the-line XZ+ variant as well. The Tigor ZX+ slots above the XZ(O), which was the top variant earlier. New changes include an updated front fascia. The headlamps now feature a black surround along with a tweaked design for the projector lamps. The tail lamps have been updated as well and now feature a clear lens setup with LEDs. Inside, you now get a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system compared to the 5.0-inch one in the older car. Sadly, it comes with Android Auto only. In addition to this, you also get dual front airbags as standard while ABS with EBD along with corner stability control is offered from the XZ variant onwards. A reversing camera is also on offer, but it is available only on the XZ+ variant. Powertrain options have been carried over as is. It is now offered in a total of nine variants. Prices range from Rs 5.20 lakh to Rs 7.38 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Tata Tigor Mileage

The claimed ARAI mileage for the Tata Tigor petrol is 20 kmpl, and for the Tata Tigor diesel is 24 kmpl.

Editor's View of Tata Tigor

  • Upside

    JTP variant is mad fun, loaded to the gills, unconventional design, large boot

  • Downside

    Non-JTP versions are dull to drive, interior quality not the best in places

  • Our Verdict

    The Tigor takes the USPs of the Tiago and adds another layer of practicality to it. If the dull engines don’t concern you (or you intend on buying the JTP only), the Tigor is an all-sense choice with some flair thrown in for good measure!

Tata Tigor Highlights

Overview

The Tiago’s elder sibling is more than a hatchback with a boot slapped on. With the Tigor, Tata Motors has stretched the wheelbase of the car by a full 50mm. This is to ensure that the Tigor not only looks like a small sedan (or styleback, like they choose to call it!) but also has the space to back it up. It also packs a huge list of features, and a boot that’s happy swallowing a grown adult if it absolutely had to. Compromises come in the form of the engines. Both the petrol and the diesel engine are adequate for daily use, and nothing more. If you like your cars racy and fast, Tata has served up a hot JTP variant that should set your pulse racing just fine.

Exterior and Interior

From the front, it isn’t easy to differentiate the Tigor from the Tiago hatchback. But look closely and you’ll find a subtle difference in the detailing of the grille. Of course, the difference in design is more obvious when you view it from the side or the rear. The smoked-out projector headlamps, machine-finished 15-inch alloy wheels (available only on the top-spec petrol engine) and the clear-lens tail lamps and a dash of bling. With the XZ+ variant, Tata has also added small dollops of chrome on the door handles, side moulding and grille that make it pop. It’s a bit loud. But hey, it does arrest attention!

Inside the cabin, the benefit of the stretched wheelbase is apparent. The rear seats have actual, usable room. It can seat three at a pinch, but prepare to brush shoulders. That aside, the cabin is a pretty happy place to be in. You’ve got a ton of storage spaces to keep your knick-knacks and a lot of features too. The XZ+ variant gets a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, automatic climate control, steering mounted audio and call controls and an 8-speaker Harman audio system. Safety features include dual airbags and anti-lock brakes with EBD and corner stability control. Tata Motors has made airbags standard, but sadly ABS still isn’t offered across the range. This needs to change Tata!

Specifications

The Tigor comes with three engine options: a 1.05-litre 3-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine and the JTP-exclusive 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. All the engines are paired with 5-speed manual transmission. The non-JTP petrol is also available with a 5-speed AMT. With the 1.05-litre diesel, you get 70PS of power and 140Nm of torque at your disposal. Yes, that’s not a lot and you feel the diesel Tiago running out of breath pretty quickly. But drive it in a relaxed manner and it will reward you with some stellar efficiency. Pick the 1.2-litre petrol, and that has 85PS/115Nm to offer. What’s more, you also get to opt for a 5-speed AMT instead of the manual. And the automatic doesn’t hit efficiency at all. In fact, it fared better in our road test. While the manual returned 15.26kmpl (city)/21.68kmpl (highway), the AMT surprised us with 16.04kmpl (city)/22.03kmpl (highway). If your idea of driving is hitting the redline while your exhaust wakes up the neighbours, Tata’s got the JTP. It’s amongst our favourite sub-Rs 10 lakh driver’s cars. And if you can trade efficiency for fun, we highly recommend getting one.

Variants

Tata Tigor variants include the XE, XM, XZ, XZ+ and finally, the JTP. Notably, the AMT is available in a single variant called the XZA.

The XE variant is best avoided as it gets nothing more than the absolute essentials. You don’t get power windows, wheel covers or even central locking. Move up to the XM, and there’s some value here with bigger 14-inch tyres and an integrated music system with four speakers.

Then there’s the XZ that ticks most boxes. You get body-coloured wing mirrors, some chrome on the grille and the door handles, steering-mounted audio controls, front fog lamps, and finally, ABS! With the automatic, you get all that’s available in the XZ and a few extra goodies in the form of projector headlamps, two tweeters, and alloy wheels. Step up to the fully-loaded XZ+ variant and you get projector headlamps, automatic climate control, an 8-speaker music system and faux leather upholstery.

Competitors

Maruti Suzuki Dzire : The Maruti Dzire sits at the top of the compact sedan segment quite comfortably. The new generation has improved by leaps and bounds and is among your best bets if you’re looking for a compact sedan.

Hyundai Xcent : Based on the Grand i10 hatchback, this compact sedan combines space and practicality of a larger car with the reliability and low cost of ownership associated with the brand. The Xcent is not as spacious as the competition but has one of the better-built interiors. The Xcent does not get a diesel automatic variant, unlike the Ameo or the Dzire.

Honda Amaze: Honda’s second-generation Amaze brings a lot to the table. Plenty of features, a spacious cabin, a refined petrol engine and a fun diesel too. The CVT stands out in a sea of jerky AMTs. Add the allure of the Honda badge, and you’ve got a product that appeals to the head and the heart!

Volkswagen Ameo: The middle-child in Volkswagen’s lineup is exactly what you think it is. It’s a Polo with a boot. Pick it only if you need a diesel automatic or a bigger boot. For everything else, the Polo works just fine.

Ford Aspire: With the recent update, Ford has plugged all the gaps in the Aspire’s arsenal. The new petrol engine is almost as fun to drive as the diesel. It’s amongst the most value-for-money compact sedans on the market today!

ZigSays

The Tigor looks like a good overall package with decent equipment and frugal engines, although these are best used in the city. The JTP variant, on the other hand, caters to the budget-conscious enthusiast who would have had a hole burnt in their pockets earlier.
