Tata Motors will soon introduce the Tigor Buzz, a special edition version of the compact sedan based on the base, XE trim. The Tigor Buzz will get a slew of cosmetic enhancements but will remain unchanged mechanically. The car is all set to go on sale and has already begun reaching Tata showrooms across the country. The ex-showroom Delhi prices for the petrol version are likely to be pegged at around the Rs. 5 lakh mark, and that of the diesel is likely to sit at around Rs. 6 lakh. This will make the Tigor Buzz compelling value-for-money, and the compact sedan will continue to be the price warrior of its segment.
As for changes, the Tigor Buzz will get a blacked-out, glossy roof wrap, blacked-out wing mirrors, a new external colour called Berry Red, a berry red grille highlight and a Buzz limited edition badge. On the inside, the car will get patterned fabric seats, dual-tone interiors with Piano black finish for the center console and sporty red accents on the interiors. The engines and gearboxes will remain unchanged. The petrol engine is a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder unit tuned to produce 84 Bhp-114 Nm. The diesel engine is a 1.1-litre 3-cylinder unit with 70 Bhp and 140 Nm on tap. Both engines get 5-speed manual gearboxes as standard.
The petrol engine of the Tigor also gets a 5-speed AMT option. It’s unclear whether the Tigor Buzz will get an AMT option considering the fact that it’s based on the XE trim. Notably, the AMT option on the Tigor is available only from the mid XM trim and above. The Tigor gets driving modes, which is a best-in-segment feature.
Higher variants of the car also get a Harman stereo with four speakers. The Tigor’s notchback design makes the car stand out on the road, especially in a blue colour scheme. The Tigor also has a hatchback sibling, called the Tiago. The Tiago is Tata Motors’ best selling car, and like the Tigor sells mainly due to its excellent pricing.
