The new Tigor has been developed on the same platform as its sibling, the Tiago and bears similarities in design, interiors and power train. As expected, the sub-compact sedan has been designed using the brand’s IMPACT Design language but it still sets itself apart from the hatchback design.
The Tigor features projector headlamps with double-barrel layout and blacked-out surrounds which are different from the Tiago. The side profile is characterised by a sloping roof line that merges in the boot lid. The rear gets a slightly jutting out boot, wraparound LED taillights and a chrome strip in the middle. The Tigor will be available with 6 colour options – Espresso Brown, Pearlescent White, Berry Red, Platinum Silver, Striker Blue and a new shade of Copper Dazzle.
The Tata Tigor is 3,992 mm long, 1,677 mm wide and 1,537 mm tall. It has a wheelbase of 2,450 mm and a ground clearance of 170 mm. The sub-4m sedan has a boot space of 419 litres. The petrol variants tip the weighing scale at 1,062 kg, while the diesel Tigor weighs 1,130 kg. The petrol XZ and XZ(O) trims come with 15-inch alloy wheels shod with 175/60 profile tubeless tyres, while the corresponding variants of the Tigor diesel get smaller 14-inch alloy wheels with 175/65 profile tubeless tyres.
The Tigor comes with anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and corner stability control (CSC) on the XT and above trims. Meanwhile, dual airbags are available only on the XZ and XZ(O) variants.
The Tigor’s top-end XZ(O) trim gets a new touchscreen infotainment system by Harman with navigation and reverse camera as well as a new automatic climate control system. Meanwhile, the XT and XZ variants continue to feature a 2-DIN ConnectNext infotainment system.
The Powering of Tigor are the same engine options that are found on the Tiago hatchback. These include a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Revotron petrol engine that churns out 84 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm and a 1.05-litre, 3-cylinder Revotorq diesel engine rated at 69 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 140 Nm @ 1,800-3,000 rpm. Both these engines are currently available only with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
