Tata Tigor: best value for money sedan?

Upgrading in life is something we all look forward too. This holds true when it comes to our preferred set of wheels. In fact, cars remain an emotional purchase in India and stepping up the ladder to a larger vehicle ends up elevating our status in the society. Not only this, a larger car also makes you feel special, your family comfortable and at times, your friends jealous! This brings us to the car in subject here, the Tata Tigor.

This is a sedan, a proper large vehicle that every small car owner looks forward to when moving from a hatchback. But the luxury that sedans offers comes for a premium. Is that always true? Before we get to that, just think what all the Tata Tigor offers you.

Tigor 800 Resized

The Tigor, within its swooping rear window that seamlessly flows into the boot, boasts of a genuine sedan look—as opposed to ‘boot-strapped-to-a-hatchback design that ails several of its competitors. There are enough elements to announce your arrival – for example the dual chambered headlamps and the chrome studded diamond front grille. These two design aspects along make the car look much premium and stylish. The variant you see here is the top spec XZ+ that also comes with machined cut alloy wheels. As you take your eyes towards the rear, the Tigor ends up impressing you with the unique coupe inspired design and the signature LED tail lamps – these do look bling at night. And then, there is the shark fin antennae at the tail-end of the roof.

800x450 Tigor Interior

If you think the design is upmarket, wait till you get inside. As seen in the video above, Gagan was left surprised with the high-quality interiors and the features on offer. And why not? For lesser money than all its rivals, the Tigor offers premium dual-tone interiors with faux leather upholstery, the best-in-segment 7″ touchscreen infotainment by Harman and an 8-speaker surround sound system tuned by Harman experts. You need to hear this to believe what we mean – it is that good!

The Tigor story doesn’t end here. The solidly built sedan isn’t no lightweight—and that shows in the way it glides over bumps and potholes. Its ‘heavy’ character helps driver’s confidence, particularly at high speeds.

So, what’s the catch?

Well, none actually. On the contrary, Tigor’s best-in-class characteristics are backed by another trump card: Solid Value For example, the fully loaded XZ+ trim you see here is not only about Rs. 1 lakh cheaper than the top end trim of its main rivals, Tata Motors’ bundle of discounts and offers make the deal even sweeter for the end customer. These include a flat cash discount of Rs 25,000 and an exchange bonus of 20,000!

Before we end, there is another factor that makes purchasing the Tata Tigor right now a sensible choice. That is because soon cars will have to be upgraded to BS-6 or Bharat Stage VI norms which means the hardware and software changes will end up making the cars even more expensive. So, if you buy a Tigor soon, it’s like rolling the dice once, but winning twice: you get an excellent car; and you get a fantastic deal.
