About Tata Tigor 2017-2020

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.

Tata Tigor 2017-2020 Overview

Tata has now launched the AMT gearbox in the XM and the flagship XZ+ variants. The Tigor XMA is priced at Rs 6.39 lakh whereas the Tigor XZA+ costs Rs 7.24 Lakh (both, ex-showroom Delhi). These prices are set at a premium of Rs 44,000 over their manual transmission counterparts. The previously available XZA variant, however, has been discontinued. Tata’s Tigor will also get a facelift soon and this time it might not be limited to cosmetic updates only. In the spy shots, the front grille was missing and the Tigor facelift was wearing rudimentary headlights. This could hint that the carmaker might redesign the front end of the Tigor with elements from the Altroz to keep it in line with the Impact 2.0 design. The side and the rear are likely to remain the same as the current car.

The Tigor gets a BS4-compliant 1.2-litre petrol and 1.05-litre diesel motor currently. While the petrol motor will be updated to comply with BS6 norms, the diesel will face the axe. The high costs of upgrading the diesel engines for BS6 emission norms will subsequently drive up the cost of the Tigor. The Tigor facelift is expected to hit roads before the end of this year or at the 2020 Auto Expo. It is likely to cost more than the current car which retails from Rs 5.48 lakh to Rs 7.64 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

  • There are ample of options available i.e. Maruti Dzire, Maruti Swift, Maruti Ertiga, Ford Freestyle etc Click on the given link to explore all available options: https://www.zigwheels.com/newcars/cars-between-6-to-10-lakhs Choosing one will depend on several factors like fuel type, brand preference, specific feature requirements etc. Please drop down your requirements so that we can assist you further. In the case of a 4-cylinder engine, power is generated every 90-degree rotation of the crankshaft. In a 3-cylinder, however, power is generated every 120 degrees. Due to such variations, a 3-cylinder engine shows drastically different characteristics in comparison to a 4-cylinder engine. - Material Usage: The Having one cylinder less, the total material required to manufacture a 3-cylinder engine is lesser. This allows the manufacturers to make a compact engine bay and focus on making the interiors roomier. - Fuel Efficiency: A 3 cylinder engine is much more fuel efficient compared to a 4 cylinder engine of the same size. This is because of two primary factors, reduced frictional losses and lighter weight. - Maintenance: In general, a 3-cylinder engine is cheaper to maintain and run. With one cylinder less, the total parts functioning in the engine are lesser. - Refinement: The most advantageous aspect of a 4 cylinder engine is that it is extremely refined. All engines these days are 4-stroke engines (intake, compression, power, exhaust). With a 4 cylinder engine, the overall balancing is perfect. Through every stroke made in a 4 cylinder engine, one cylinder is always in the power stroke and the rest are all at different positions than each other. This gives the crankshaft a much more streamlined motion which translates to smooth engine operation on the whole. - Power: 3-cylinder engines have an area of no firing in the cycle. During this period, the crankshaft is rotating purely on the momentum generated by the piston in the previous stroke. So at lower RPM’s a 3 cylinder engine really struggles to put out the power. on the other hand, the 4-cylinder engine on the other hand, does not suffer from this problem as it has no lag in the firing order. It works equally good at lower RPMs as it does at higher RPMs. 3-Cylinder vs 4-Cylinder: So which engine is better? 3 cylinder engines nowadays are packed with almost equal amounts of power as 4 cylinder engines of the same capacity. So which one stands triumphant here? The answer is, none. Each type of engine has it’s plus points and negatives and both suit different purposes. A 3-cylinder engine is better suited for fuel efficiency and cost savings. A 4 cylinder engine is better suited for refinement and punchy power delivery. All in all, it boils down to where your preferences lies.
  • 4 cylinder is better then 3 cylinderYou can buy Nexon Diesel it's has 4 cylinder & fit to your budget.

Q. Hi bro how is Tata Tigor performance? I am planning to buy.
  • We drove both the petrol and diesel versions, and the engines and transmissions are the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Revotron and 1.05-litre 3-cylinder Revotorq from the Tiago mated to five speed manual gearboxes. Power and torque figures are the same as the Tiago’s, at 85PS and 114Nm. The diesel remains unchanged too, offering 70PS of power and 140Nm of torque. However, as the Tigor is heavier by 40 - 50 kgs, the gearing has been tweaked to offer the right kind of drivability. On the road, the engine feels smooth and is quiet at idle but gets a bit noisy as you rev it. The petrol engine is the better pick in this lineup as it feels livelier even at low speeds. Throttle response is quicker at part throttle, which should make the petrol easier and more comfortable to drive in city. Being more powerful, it also felt quicker to accelerate, and also has a better torque curve since its power does not taper off as sharply as the diesel’s. It also feels quite at ease while cruising on the highway. The diesel feels quite dull to drive. It is at its peppiest best in a very narrow window. Any time you want to go faster, whether in the city or on open roads, you will have to work the gearbox. Gearshift quality in the diesel is also not as good as in the petrol, especially when shifting from second to third gear. Petrol and diesel both get Eco and City driving modes, like the Tiago, and Tata says the modes have been tweaked for a better experience.
  • Under the hood, the fire power is provided by a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.05 - liter diesel engine putting out 85PS /114 Nm and 85 PS/140 Nm respectively. Tigor is based on Tiago hatchback platform and has been crafted beautifully despite its dimensions limited by sub-4m sedan regualtions. The abundance of space inside the cabin and the quality interiors are some of the highlights of Tigor and this Tata also features best in class 420-liter boot. It looks like a good overall package with decent equipment, and frugal engines - though 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.
  • Excellent bro.... It was in fact my first car n it turned out to be so good that within 7 months of usage I bought another tata car that's Nexon....

    Hello everybody. I purchased xz+ on 28th March, drove straight way for about 150 km on highway in the night. Pros - Got 22 km mileage, Excellent comfort seating, Lights are very good, Suspension superlative, Music by Harman world class. Cons - Engine a bit noisy, AC noisy but very effective at low rpm, even Apple car play missing, DRL missing, Rear armrest without a string for pulling it outside AC vents, simple looking with low quality adjustable nobs. At the very start of engine, a typical irritating noise comes out for a second. During drive at 80 km speed a burning smell, which I could not figure out. Two times happened. Conclusion, excellent buy keeping all the positive and negative in mind at such price, no other cars stands even near to it except Ford Aspire. Lastly build quality of Tigor is really marvellous. Hope to see the service part standing postive also. Tata motors must keep a bird's eye on it if it has to deliver consistently in the market. Within fortnight I shall be experiencing the service aspect.

    Tata Tigor is one of the best choice when looking in Compact Sedan Segment. It looks great, drives well and is built solid. The only gripe is the engine which isn't Refined Enough and don't have the punch like other cars in the segment. Besides that the car gives good mileage 16-17 in city and 20+ on highway.The car feels rock solid and the steering is weighed up well. The music system is of Harmon and sounds great. Mantainence is low but service isn't very great.But a Great product from tata. This doesn't feel like 'TATA'.

    Customers should not buy the Tigor, even my suggestion customers should not by Any TATA motors products,as after sales they dont care about the customers, i purchased vehicles 20 days back i have worst experience, not good in brake down services . dont have spare at dealership, not able to provide temp vehicle once your vehicle in accident claim. mileage is just 12 in AMT. after complain in TATA motors no revert from any one. unprofessional company with out having any understanding of customers requirement.

    Tata Tigor is an excellent good looking car with good mileage at this price segment. The car has all the nextgen features with in built Harman kardon speakers (8 Nos) which makes this car the best for this price comparing the other cars in the market. When performance comes into picture, it feels heavy and pickup is that good enough since it has the 3 cylinder model. After all, Tata tigor is one of the best product from TATA and it worth every single penny that you spent.

    I own XZA variant, that is amt in top avatar. It's awesomely convenient, feels much more safer once inside.For those who thinks amt's are not exciting you also get a Sport mode that will surprise you even if you are cruising at 100kph. It's a lovely car with beautiful sound system. The only thing I miss is electronically foldable ORVMs
