Highlights

February 09, 2017: Tata has finally put our collective curiosity to rest by revealing the name of the Tiago-based compact sedan which was previously known by its codename – the Kite 5. The Kite 5 is now called 'Tigor', and will have its market launch in the first half of 2017.  Like the Tiago, the Tigor is also based on Tata's new design language, Impact design, and it has a slightly more upmarket appeal than the Tiago. As for the features, it will borrow most of the goodies from the hatch and will additionally come with a touch-based infotainment system, auto climate control, LED tail lamps, and others. Mechanically, it will be powered by the same set of powertrains that are available with the Tiago. Speaking of its rivals, the Tigor will sit below the Zest in Tata's line-up and will have the upcoming Chevrolet Beat Essentia as its chief competitor. We expect the price list to start at around Rs 4.5 lakh for the Tigor.

Tata Tigor review

Tata Motors was the first automaker in the country to offer a sub-4m sedan – the Indigo CS – soon after the declaration of relative tax relaxation on sub-4m cars by the government. Later on, the homegrown automaker introduced the Zest, which is also a sub-4m sedan and presently sits above the Indigo CS as a more premium offering. Now, the automaker is coming up with a spiritual successor to the Indigo CS, the Tigor, it was also known by its codename the Kite 5. The Tigor is a sub-4m sedan version of the popular Tata Tiago.

Tata showcased the Kite 5 for the first time at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo and the automaker will launch it in the first half of 2017. The arch rival of the Tigor will be the upcoming Chevrolet Beat Essentia (sub-4m sedan version of the 2017 Beat). Since it will share most of its features with the already launched Tiago, let’s see what the Tigor has to offer in the country at the time of launch. 

Things We Like in Tigor

  • The Tiago-borrowed eight-speaker Harman system is possibly segment-defying
  • Powerful powertrain options – 1.2-litre petrol and 1.05-litre diesel – borrowed from the Tiago as against the expected engine options of the Beat Essentia
  • The sporty styling – coupe-like roofline, 15-inch wheels, integrated spoiler with width-spanning LED stop lamp, and others – will be appreciated by many
  • Features one of the best executed rear profiles amongst the sub-4m sedans

Things We Don't Like in Tigor

  • Overall refinement levels had improved vastly in the Tiago over previous Tatas, but there was still something left to be desired – the situation is likely to be similar with the Kite 5
  • Since the dashboard is shared with the Tiago, the cramped front footwell would prove to be uncomfortable for taller passengers

Stand Out Features

  • Eight-speaker Harman-powered unit with a five-inch colour display, which is arguably the best in the segment

  • Multi-drive modes allow the driver to shift between City and Eco modes that alter the behaviour and response of the engine

CarDekho Verdict

Since the Tigor is the sub-4m sedan version of the Tiago, it is based on the same formula, which is already doing wonders for Tata.

"Tata is expected to price the Tigor aggressively, just like the Tiago. If that comes to pass, it is likely to become the best value-for-money option in its segment, just like its hot-selling hatch counterpart"

Like the Tiago, the Tigor will certainly be one of Tata’s best product executions ever.
