Tata Motors has recalled the diesel-engined model of Tigor, which apparently has developed some emission issues. Vehicles manufactured between 6th March 2017 and 1st December 2017 bearing chassis numbers from MAT629401GKP52721 to MAT629401HKN89616 are affected by this issue.
Tata is fixing the issue free of cost and the recall is voluntary. Meanwhile, if you are an owner of a Tigor diesel, there’s nothing to worry. Representatives from the Tata dealerships will themselves get in touch and contact the respective owners of the recalled variant and get the problem fixed at the earliest.
Owners of these vehicles may also call up on 1800-209-7979 to fix up an appointment for their car. Petrol engine Tigor owners have nothing to worry about as there has been no statement issued by the company about any problem in the petrol variants.
Based on the Tiago hatchback, the Tigor was launched in India early last year. The Tata Tigor diesel comes powered by a 1.05-litre diesel engine producing 69 Bhp of power at 4000 RPM and 140 Nm of torque from 1800-3000 RPM. It comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The compact sedan’s pricing for the diesel variant starts at Rs. 5.72 lakh and goes all the way up to Rs 7.19 lakh. This makes the Tigor India’s least priced compact sedan.
The Tigor shares its engines, gearboxes and many other parts with the Tiago hatchback, and this includes the diesel engine. However, the Tiago has not been affected by the current recall. Both the Tiago and Tigor are hot-selling cars in Tata Motors’ line-up. Value pricing is one big reason for these cars’ success in India. In the coming months, Tata Motors will roll out a range of new variants, based on both the Tiago and Tigor. The new variants will include the high-performance JTP twins, electric versions of both cars, and also a cross hatch version of the Tiago.
