If they bring this in AT/AMT I'm gonna get one for the city run about.
At this point in time there's no car with good power and a nice AT under 12L except the polo gt and the Ameo dsg, and I have both LOL.
If they go the baleno way and keep it MT only, might lose out on a lot of sales.

How? Till date, Tata has only shown their sports models as concepts and haven't launched even one. If they are really serious, they should have launched at least one in the past decade. Afterall, the Indica Sport concept was pretty awesome and that was over a decade ago.

I have been waiting a very long time.

Do they plan for the diesel as well or just the petrol?

Actually they should once again try to give the Tigor a sales boost and introduce a sport version of not just the Tiago but also the Tigor. The Tigor frankly already looks like a sport back and it need to be given the benefit of more Oomph, power and marketing to see that it too can become a success. Tigor can do with a bit of price correction to make it as attractive as the Tiago has been and a Sport version at a tempting price would be just the way to do that.

+1 to ^^. The Tigor is seriously an awesome looking car, and in its segment the only thing that breaks its back is the engine.Time and again people have been ranting about it, i hope Tata will do something about it.

Also, is all this development only happening for the petrol engine?

Cross posting from Nexon thread. According to me Tigor S is being tested with Nexon's 1.2 Turbo-charged engine.

MT or AMT or AT (proper automatic like Hexa)
Not known yet, but expect a premium of around a lakh more than the equivalent 84PS variant.
Transmission details are unknown too, but it's a manual. 5-speed or 6-speed is unconfirmed for now.

Chances are very slim for an S AT or S AMT.

Just petrol, for now.

Yes, but all indications point towards a diesel "S" for the Tigor. Maybe the plan is for a petrol "S" Tiago & a diesel "S" Tigor. Let's see what Tata actually comes up with.


More details awaited on these developments.

Awesome, Tigor S diesel would be awesome. Sir please do try and get more details on its launch timelines. Tigor looks stunning on road and with that huge bootspace it would be a perfect replacement for my Ritz.
