15 December 2017, Neil Parkhi


The Tata Tigor is a subcompact sedan automobile manufactured by Tata Motors in India. It was launched in India by the end of March 2017. The Tigor is a styleback based on the previous year launched Tata Tiago, and it comes in both petrol and diesel engine that is delivering the dynamic performance. Tata Motors launched the Tigor in India at a starting price of Rs 470000 or $7330 with stunning design and dynamic stance. At the front fascia, the signature grille, headlamps, foglamps gives an attractive look to the Tigor. The car is packed with next-gen technology including 5-inch infotainment system with voice recognition and connectivity through ConnectNext app.


The sub-4 meter sedan was first tagged as Kite 5 but, it was renamed later. The sedan was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2016 and shares Tata Tiago’s platform. Even the design cues are quite similar to Tata Tiago just the extended boot makes the difference. The all new Tigor has advanced safety features including driver and co-passenger airbags, rear parking sensors, central lock, braking system with ABS and EBD to make the journey safe. The top end variants of the Tata Tigor adorned with features like rear view camera, automatic climate control along with 24 storage spaces and much more can be explored here. This really makes this all new Tigor more impressive and safe.
