The Tata Tigor subcompact sub 4-metre sedan has been finally launched in India. The new sedan comes with both diesel and petrol engine options and a manual 5 speed gearbox, but there is no automatic variant yet. Prices for the Tigor petrol start at an introductory ₹ 4.70 lakh with the top spec variant priced at ₹ 6.19 lakh (all-prices, ex-showroom Delhi). The Tata Tigor diesel on the other hand is a tad bit more expensive than the petrol and starts at ₹ 5.60 lakh with the top spec variant priced at ₹ 7.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Tata Tigor can be booked at showrooms across the country for a booking amount of ₹ 5000 and will go up against competition like the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent and the Ford Aspire.The Tata Tigor is the best-looking subcompact sedan to have ever been launched in India.
The sub 4-meter proportions are almost coupe like with its sloping roofline and well designed tail section and the petrol variant with the 15-inch wheels looks the most appealing. The diesel variants on the other hand get only 14-inch alloy wheels on the top of the line car. The Tigor also gets a blacked out headlamp cluster with projector low beams and a halogen high beam setup and LED tail lamps with a high mounted LED third brake light which lights up end to end on the rear windscreen. A roof mounted spoiler that envelops this high mounted third brake lamp also adds to the great design. The Tigor gets a decent list of features as well.
