The Tata Tiago is now available at a discount of INR 18000 in Bengaluru. In Mumbai, the discount is around INR 13,000 and INR 12,000 in Delhi, NCR. The discount on a newly launched car is always desirable and makes it slightly better value for money. The Tata Tigor shares the same platform of the Tiago, but it has undergone multiple changes. Be it design, length, wheelbase, design and even features. So there are multiple changes on the Tigor from the regular hatchback. These are similarities too, but these are minimal. There aren’t a lot of same bits in both the cars.
The Tigor has 50mm longer wheelbase and this makes the rear door longer. The front resembles the Tiago but then the front grille has a different design, it gets smoked headlamps. The front fog lamps are different. Then the side profile looks different as the sporty back looks stylish and the rear also looks different. The tail lamps even have LEDs and the rear spoiler gets LEDs in them too.
In terms of engine, there is the 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine This engine produces about 84bhp of power and 110Nm of peak torque. The diesel is a 1.05-litre engine that churns about 70bhp of power. Both these engines come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

Tata Tigor Driving Dynamics
In terms of driving, the Tata Tigor ride has a very supple ride. It irons out most of the road bumps and it does a fairly good job. The handling too, is one of the best in its segment.

Tata Tigor Design
In terms of styling, there isn’t a major difference in the fascia. Well, it resembles the Tiago to a great extent. There is a sleek front grille along with a black honeycomb mesh and smoked out headlamps too. The round fog lamps have chrome surrounds. The wing mirrors are blacked out as it matches with the roof too.
The Tata Tigor feels more like a notchback. Where it stands out is that it looks different. That is one of the strong points for this sedan. While, most of the compact sedans are more of a compromise in design, the Tata Tigor does it the other way.
Tata Tigor Interiors
It is on the inside that the Tata Tigor looks similar to the Tiago. The interiors are all black, when compared to the Tiago, which is black and grey. The Tata Tigor has the same signature three spoke steering wheel with controls for music and voice command. There will be the same instrument cluster too. This displays average speed, distance to empty, fuel efficiency and instant fuel efficiency as well. The driver information system is new.
As the wheelbase of the sedan has seen an increase, it has much better rear knee room. This enhances the comfort too. At the same time, Tata Tigor even gets a rear arm rest with two cup holders in it. The boot space at 419 litres is certainly one of the largest in the segment. This makes the Tigor a highly practical compact sedan.

A 1.2-litre petrol does duty on the Tigor. This engine is fantastic. It is smooth and very easy to drive. There is no oomph factor about it. It has been tuned for better mileage than performance. There is sufficient power to overtake but then it doesn’t have the refinement. There is an evident petrol engine noise and some amount of vibration at low speeds. But then this engine is smooth and is easy to drive in the city or even on the highway. Job done! 5-speed manual box is sleek and short.
The diesel engine on the other hand has very linear power. There is good enough power at low engine speed, but it is comfortable to cruise in. Even for the highway, it is a good vehicle to cruise in. At the same time, one needs to downshift to make those quick overtaking moves. Tata Tigor has a smaller size engine, and the power doesn’t match up to the competition in the diesel engines. The engine is fairly refined and has very low engine noise. The diesel engine clatter is audible only after 4000rpm. There is high levels of refinement in this engine. In performance, petrol should be your pick, while diesel is more of a mile muncher option.
