Tata Motors is really turning up the trolling in the run up to the top-end Tigor XZ+ variant’s launch on the 10th of October 2018. After targeting the recently launched Ford Figo Aspire Facelift just days ago, the Tata Tigor has now set its sights on the best selling Maruti Dzire. The latest teaser video for the Tigor XZ+ variant trolls the Maruti Dzire. The video asks buyers to ‘Renounce the world of Desire’. Clearly, the upcoming Tata Tigor XZ+ is taking a dig at the Maruti Dzire. Here, watch the video for yourself.
The top-end XZ+ variant of the Tigor will pack in new features and get stylistic changes to differentiate it from the lower variants. We hope that Tata Motors really packs the car with segment leading stuff considering the build up to the launch.
The car has already been unmasked through spyshots, which reveal that the headlamps and tail lamps will get a refresh, along with a tweaked grille design. The car will also get a new ‘Egyptian Blue’ paint scheme. Another prominent design change will be additional of a BMW-like shark-fin antenna on the roof.
Talking of feature additions on the inside, the Tigor XZ+ variant will get a rear centre armrest with cupholders, driver’s side seat height adjust, power folding wing mirrors, a 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a reverse parking camera that beams into the touchscreen display.
Mechanically, the car is expected to be unchanged. The petrol motor will be a 1.2 liter unit with 84 Bhp-115 Nm on tap, a 5 speed manual gearbox as standard, and a 5 speed automated manual transmission as an option. The diesel engine will be a 1.1 liter-3 cylinder turbocharged unit with 69 Bhp-140 Nm. A 5 speed manual gearbox will accompany the diesel, which won’t get an automatic gearbox option. The Tigor XZ+ variant is expected to be priced about Rs. 30,000 higher than the current top-end XZ variant, giving it a terrific value-for-money proposition.
