Tata Tigor - Diesel performance is a letdown

I'll be very frank in my opinion, I know Tata Motors have put in a lot of effort in the Tigor but I still feel it isn't the best compact sedan of the lot. I would prefer a Honda Amaze over the Tigor because it looks more complete. Going through the reviews of Tata compact sedan, one thing that I find consistent is the not-so-great Revotorq diesel engine. The performance isn't up to the mark when compared to its petrol counterpart. Since I am a tall guy, I would have wanted a more raised car but the diesel version sits on even smaller wheel size of 14-inches as compared to 15-inches on the petrol Tigor. The interior fit and finish is decent but doesn't quite compare to the Swift Dzire's cabin. The AC in all Tata cars is excellent but they do create a lot of noise inside the cabin and the new Tigor I'm told is no better. The touchscreen system is laggy and can be connected only to an Android phone, which is a downside for me, as I use an Iphone. And the worst part in the Tigor is the opening of the boot; there are no latches on the boot lid, you'll have to come all the way to the front seat and then press the button over there. Moreover, you'll have to keep the ignition on to continue its functioning as the boot is electrically powered (what the hell). I can only consider it, if it comes below Rs 4 lakh, else there are plenty of other compact sedans like the Amaze, DZire and even Tata Zest to choose from.

I feel sad to see trolls paid by foreign manufacturers criticizing Tata products without even driving/looking at them. Please stop behaving like antinationals. If you need money, ask Tata and I'm sure they can give you enough to prevent you from selling out to Maruti. Coming back to the Tigor, it has the best interiors of the lot. HONDA AMAZE? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? That car has so much noise inside the cabin that it is not possible to listen to music in peace. Jai Hind.

    The Tata Tiago/Tigor/Storm/Aria/Hexa infotainment head unit is a significant let down on a brilliant sounding music system / speakers.If TATA are clever, they will introduce ANDROID AUTO and APPLE CARPLAY into their head units on a much larger / brighter (minimum 7 sized touchscreen which is more responsive.) They should retain the rotatary knobs with a nurled effect for better tactile feel.(no touch buttons like in HONDA - rubbish!. have to take your eyes off the road to operate.)

      The fact : The Revotorq engine is significantly underpowered. To such a degree, that slight variations in driving style could severe reduce the mileage. TATA have to up the power to justify the rest of the brilliant product in the Tigor. The Ride-height/Ground clearance is the same between the Diesel and the Petrol since the aspect ratios have been changed in the tyres to mitigate the difference in Rim sizes. this has been neccesitated because of the extra weight of the deisel Engine.

        • Low mileage

          Bad experience with low mileage as issued mileage by company, also some noise raise by the engine and while gear shifting the gearbox makes a sound.
