  1. Tigor will be cheaper than the Dzire so we suggest you wait for it. Also, new generation Dzire will launch in the second half of this year. We feel it makes sense to wait for the new Dzire instead of buying the current model


  2. Sir both cars are new and yet not on road, after coming both cars on road, exact position will revel

  3. While comparing TIGOR with DZIRE features (petrol version ), I could not be sure whether Dzire have also the following features….
    1) ECO/City Mode,
    2) Engine Immobilizer,
    3)Driver Seat Belt reminder,
    4) Cooled Glove compartment,
    5) Corner Stability Control,
    6) Rear Defogger,
    7) Follow me home head light,
    8) ABS with EBD,
    9) Push start/ stop switch.

  4. 1) ECO/City Mode, – NO
    2) Engine Immobilizer, – YES
    3)Driver Seat Belt reminder, _ YES
    4) Cooled Glove compartment, – NO
    5) Corner Stability Control, – No
    6) Rear Defogger, – Yes
    7) Follow me home head light, – No
    8) ABS with EBD, – Yes
    9) Push start/ stop switch. – Yes

  5. Sir, I am waiting for rigor booking but confused between petrol or diesel, my daily use is 35kms max. But I am afraid of Tata reputation in petrol engine ,example even latest Tata Zest petrol

    Please suggest

  6. “offering only slightly more cabin space.” – Are you sure that Dzire has slightly more cabin space.. In fact many other reviewers have said the opposite..

  7. Tata motor is very bad performance car.I don’t like Tata car .poor service, parts and higher price of parts. High maintenance, so I don’t like Tata car or any model


  9. Tigor is a better choice in petrol & Dzire in diesel. But the price difference of nearly one lakh is a point to consider. I will go for tigor petrol, excepting the width Dzire (63mm), length (3mm) & lighter weight , negligible mileage does not stand a chance. As Tigor is cheaper by 90000/- &, boot space is much bigger

  10. I bought Tata Tigor and got delivered Last week (Top end Diesel version). I like the style back (The shape of the car) which is much much better than any other Compact Sedan. The rear seats are more comfortable than any other Compact sedans. The top end costed me on Road 8.74 L at Bangalore.. I am enjoying with the car and more so I trust the Brand of Tata in every product.

  11. Why these features in Tigor is missed in your comparison.
    Tata tigor comes with a projector headlamp with smoke.
    Also petrol variant has a bigger 15 inch alloy wheels(which looks more beautiful than DZire).
    Also like to remind AMT in Tiago.So it’s not so far.
    Harman 8 speaker setup-There is no competitor for this.
    Tata-A brand which sold millions of Indica.
    A comparison should not be on oneside

  12. Sir i want to know one question about the safety features in both cars…

    Rest after knowing about features and with their prices it is clear that

    tigor is value for money and fully feature loaded with trend setter car because of its different looks and lights…

    Rest you tell the final verdict

  13. No doubt TIgor is winner. Dezire lack styling, safety, music system as compared to Tigor. I will go for Tigor.

  14. I have booked the Tigor XZ(o), Its a great car with mind blowing features and practicality, Loved the Music system, safety, boot space, reverse camera, interior quality, touch screen etc. at such a price point, I would never go for a maruti, its has outdated interiors and looks too pricey for what they offer.

  15. Stability, brakingdistance and 0 to 60 km /hr in seconds, safety in terms of design, sheet thickness, sheet tensile strength are important aspects we are missing.These are important aspects manufacturers are not disclosing and fooling people in absence of Government specifications. The cars exported have different spec.sheet used can you imagine. Maruti baleno is excellent design, very light in weight and quite unsafe.

  16. I am a hundai car (i10) user for more than seven years and making plan to buy a new one Tigor containing lot of features. I do not get spec about few small utilities but important such as – Rear AC vents, Head lamp height / distance adjustment, Door open alarm, Rain sensing vipers, Rear seat foldable (60:40).

  17. Comment:hyyyyy I am so Confuse with car i am purchase plz say good and nice or canfatable car plz
