Tata is all set to launch its third product for 2017, the Tigor. The Tigor is a compact sedan that is based on the Tiago and will sit under the Zest compact sedan. While we just drove the car, it is yet to be launched. The launch will take place on the 29th of this month. If you want one, bookings for the same have already begun.
While the pricing of the car hasn’t yet been revealed, we expect Tata to price it competitively. This will be India’s cheapest compact sedan. Bookings have opened and you can now order one by paying Rs 5,000 at any of their dealerships across the country.
A bit more about the car?
The Tigor is 3992 mm long and has a 50 mm longer wheel base than the Tiago, which it is based on. It looks as stylish as the Tiago and will feature a sloping roofline at the back (which Tata likes to call Styleback). It has a large horizontal LED braking light on top of the rear windscreen, like it is on the Audi A7. Other than that, the car will come with projector headlamps, alloy wheels and LED tail lamps.
On the inside, this is similar to the Tiago, except the fact that the Tigor gets a touch screen system as opposed to the normal system the Tiago gets.
Under the hood, the car is powered by the same engines that are offered on the Tiago. So you have the 1.2 liter, 3-cylinder petrol engine making 84 Bhp and 114 Nm, where as the diesel is the 1.05 liter unit which produces 69 Bhp and 140 Nm. Initially, the Tigor will only be offered in manual and would later get the option of an AMT, like on the Tiago.
