Tata Motors has added the digital instrument cluster to the top-end variants of the Tata Tiago and the Tata Tigor in the Indian market. The manufacturer has silently added the new feature and the cars with the all-digital instrument cluster have started to arrive at the dealerships too!
The new instrument cluster comes alongside the launch of the all-new S-Presso and Renault Kwid facelift, which have a digital instrument cluster. The XZA+ variant of the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor will offer the unique all-digital instrument cluster. All other variants will come with the regular twin-pod intrument cluster. Interestingly, the price of both the vairants remian unchanged even after the addition of the new feature. The Tata Tiago XZA+ petrol is priced at Rs 6.7 lakhs while the Tata Tigor XZA+ is priced at Rs 7.45 lakhs. It should be noted that XZA+ variant is only available with the petrol engine option.
The new digital instrument cluster is shaped in a trapezoidal form and is a monochrome unit. It means that it only displays a single colour. The new digital instrument cluster shows a lot of information and has two seperate level indicators on each flank that displays the fuel level and the tachometer, which indicates the engine RPM of the car. Apart from these two level indicators, the instrument cluster has a multi-information display that displays critical information like average fuel economy, distance-to-empty, dual trip meter, odometer and a clock display. The central part of the instrument cluster gets a big speedometer. The temperature guage is also positioned near to the fuel gauge of the new instrument cluster.
The addition of the digital instrument cluster is the only change in the car. Everything else remains exactly the same. The dashboard gets a 7.0-inch touchscreen instrument cluster with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also gets an 8-speaker surround system from Harman, climate control system, steering-mounted audio controls, projector headlamps and driving modes that changes the engine tuning for favouring better fuel efficiency or power. The top-end variant of the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor get safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, driver and co-driver seatbelt warning system and speed warning system. The infotainment screen also works as a screen for the rear camera.
Also, engine options remain the same. Both the XZA+ variant of the Tigor and the Tiago come powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that develops a maximum power of 85 PS and peak torque of 114 Nm. It gets a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission too. Both the vehicle also comes powered by a 1.05-litre diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 70 PS and peak torque of 140 Nm. It only gets a manual transmission.
