Tata Motors is all set to launch an updated version of its Tigor compact sedan in India on October 10, 2018. Tata is currently busy teasing the new Tigor on its social platform and has been trolling Ford along the way as well. Now, some images courtesy of Sarthak Shewale have shed more light on the new Tigor, which features an all-new top-spec variant which bears the XZ+ name.
The biggest change in the new Tigor XZ+ variants will be the all-new Harman branded 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that can be seen in the image below, will now offer Apple CarPlay along with the standard Android Auto and phone mirroring functionalities. The Harman infotainment screen also doubles up as the display for the reverse parking camera as well. The driver’s seat on the updated Tigor is now height adjustable while the rear seats feature a centre armrest that sports two cup holders and can be folded back up to allow three people to sit at the rear.
Tata Motors will be launching the facelifted Tigor on the 10th of October less than two years after its arrival in India. The facelifted Tigor will sport quite a few cosmetic changes with revised headlamps and clear lens tail lamps The Tigor will also be offered with a brand new colour option – Egyptian Blue. Another new feature that can be seen is the new shark fin spoiler on the roof of the updated Tigor sedan. The Tigor’s ORVMS are now electronically operated as well.
The updated Tigor will remain unchanged mechanically and will feature the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.05-litre turbo diesel engine which come paired to a 5-speed manual. The petrol Tigor also sports an AMT gearbox.
The 1.2-litre petrol is a naturally aspirated 3 cylinder engine that produces 84 Bhp and 115 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is a turbocharged 1.05-litre three-cylinder unit that cranks out 70 Bhp and 140 Nm of torque.
Tata Motors is also working on a performance version of the Tigor called the Tigor JTP, which sports the Tata Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that cranks out 108 Bhp and 150 Nm of torque and is expected to arrive in the coming months. An electric Tigor is also in the works.
