Tata Motors has revealed prices of the Tigor compact sedan’s AMT variants, and the car is much cheaper than the Maruti Dzire Automatic. Prices start from Rs. 5.75 lakhs, making the Tigor AMT the cheapest automatic sedan one can buy in India. Bookings will open soon, and the car is expected to reach dealerships shortly.
The Tigor AMT is available in two variants – XTA and XZA. The XTA is a mid-variant while the XZA is a top-end variant. The XZA is priced at Rs. 6.22 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi. The XTA variant is Rs. 98,000 cheaper than the Dzire VXi Automatic while the XZA variant is cheaper than the Dzire ZXi Automatic by Rs. 1.27 lakhs.
The Tigor AMT is powered by a 1.2 liter-3 cylinder Revotron petrol engine that Tata first developed for the Tiago. This engine outputs 84 Bhp of peak power and 114 Nm of peak torque. It also gets multiple driving modes, something that is not available on other engines offered by compact sedans in the segment. The transmission is a 5 speed AMT that eliminates the clutch. The AMT also offers a manual mode. The same unit is also used on the Tiago hatchback.
Tata also offers the Tigor with a diesel engine. However, the diesel engine does not get the AMT option. Such an option may be offered in future though. Presently, the diesel engine is a 1.1 liter, 3 cylinder turbocharged unit with 69 Bhp of peak power and 140 Nm of peak torque. It comes with a 5 speed manual gearbox. The Tigor is a compact sedan version of the Tiago hatchback, and shares many parts and features with the latter. However, the Tigor has not been as successful as the Tiago in India. The addition of AMT variants is expected to boost sales. The coming months will give us an indication of how much the AMT has boosted Tigor sales.
