Tata Tigor launched at Rs 4.7 lakh, priced cheaper than Maruti Dzire

Tata Motors has asked dealers to display the Tata Tigor at showrooms ahead of its national launch tomorrow. Design wise, the Tigor receives the same front fascia as its sibling, the Tiago while the posterior receives a completely new design with the inclusion of a extended boot. The prices of the petrol variants of the vehicle range between Rs4.70 - Rs6.19 lakh (ex-Delhi) while that of the diesel variant ranges from Rs 5.60 - Rs7.09 lakh (ex-Delhi). The Tiago-based sedan will go up against the front-runners like Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire, Honda Amaze and Volkswagen Ameo in its segment. The new sub-four metre sedan is based on Tata's popular hatchback, the Tiago and by the looks of it, the company has done a pretty neat job of integrating the boot.

Tata Motors on Wednesday officially launched their much-awaited mid-segment sedan+ - Tigor. The Tigor will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. On the inside too, the Tigor gets a host of features which include a five-inch infotainment system, eight-speaker system from Harman, automatic climate control, among others. Soon afterwards, we drove the Tata Tigor and you can read our first drive review here. While the Revotron 1.2-litre petrol engine will churn out 83.8bhp of power at 6,000rpm and 114Nm of torque at 3,500rpm, the Revotorq 1.05-litre diesel engine will be tuned to churn out 69bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. 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 petrol version is powered by Tata's Revotron 1.2 litre Multi-Drive: Eco and City. The Eco mode optimises engine performance for superior fuel economy while the City mode, which is also the default mode, optimises engine output for the best of both, a peppy driving experience and efficiency.
