Tata Tigor to Launch on March 29! [FULL DETAILS INSIDE]


Tata Motor has finally revealed the commercial name of its highly anticipated sub compact sedan. Internally known as the Kite5, the new Tata Tigor notchback is based on the Tiago and looks like a logical successor to the Indigo eCS. The Indigo eCS became the first compact sedan to launch in India. Now, in all probability, the Tigor will become the first sub compact sedan in our market. Our guess is the Tata Tigor launch will happen on March 29, 2017. Prices could start at as low as Rs 4 Lakh. While we will come up with a detailed test drive review of the Tigor in coming days, you can check out all the available details in our post here. ALSO SEE- Tata Tigor Test Drive Review

Tata Tigor Review – Exterior Design

The Tigor shares in plenty with the Tiago. It shares most of the panels with the donor hatchback. The front-end will be mostly the same. However, the rear-end, thanks to the notchback, is completely new. So, basically, the design of the Tigor is expected to be bog similar to the Tiago till the C-pillar, after which the major difference arises out of the longer rear overhang. The Tigor also sports smoked headlampswith projector units.

The rear is very stylish and features a notchback styling. It features a pair of split taillights with LED fixtures. The rear bumper sports a black insert and some chrome appliques. This recessed black element also houses the reflector units and reverse lamp. There’s also a roof-mounted rear spoiler featuring the secondary stop lamp. The final production form gets a different set of allow wheels.

Tata Tigor Interior

Akin to the exterior, the interior of the upcoming Tata Tigor mimics the Tiago’s cabin. It gets same all-black treatment with glossy black highlights. However, it will feature additional equipment. On higher variants, the manual aircon controls will be replaced by controls for an automatic climate control. This car too will get a short-diameter three-spoke steering wheel that will boast of audio/telephony controls on the higher variants. Other highlights of the cabin will be – rectangular aircon vents, a 2-DIN audio system, rear wash/wipe, rear defogger, rear defogger and electrically adjustable ORVMs. The image above is that of the Tata Tigor Geneva Edition. It features red highlights in the cabin to match the exterior paint shade.
