Update 29/3/2017Tata Tigor Launched at Rs 4.70 Lakh

Tata Motors had a good 2016, thanks, primarily, to the Tiago hatchback. The car was the first to carry Tata Motors’ new design language - Impact, and it has surely clicked well enough with customers in India. Soon after the launch of the Tiago, we heard stories about Tata Motors working on a Tiago-based compact sedan, a concept of which was showcased during the Auto Expo 2016. Since then, until now, we have known that work-in-progress as the Kite 5. The home-grown automaker has finally completed the christening process and the sedan will be called ‘Tigor.’

Slated to become the next offering that boasts the company’s Impact design language, the Tigor has surely become one of the most anticipated cars to be launched in 2017. The home-grown automaker has even taken the pain to tag the Tigor as a ‘Styleback’. The company says that once launched, which is expected in the first half of 2017, the Tigor Styleback will be a game changer, by essentially creating a new segment.

To keep the production costs in check and to ensure that it undercuts all its competitors in the Indian market, the Tigor will share most of its underpinnings with the hatchback it is based on. That means, just like the Tiago, the Tigor will be offered with the 1.2-litre petrol engine, producing 85PS/114Nm, and 1.05-litre diesel mill that is tuned to generate 70PS/140Nm. Both the engines will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission and an AMT might just get into the mix as well.

The Tiago set the benchmark for its segment with its rich feature-list and the Tigor is expected to do the same. We expect the price list to start at around Rs 4.5 lakh for the Tigor. Will this be the car that helps Tata Motors get a good grip on the Indian automotive market? Well, it surely sounds promising!
