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.

Birdies are chirping that the sportier versions of the Tiago & the Tigor are headed to the 2018 Auto Expo - with a good chance of being launched there.

With the dwindling sales of Tigor, I hope they better bring this Sport Diesel variant asap and launch it in Auto Expo. Tigor is a really good looking "Compact Sedan", however with a weak heart - the 3 cylinder mills. Atleast they could have plonked the 4 cylinder engines from Zest, alas as we know they want to place this below Zest which is why the engines from Tiago made their way to Tigor.

The engines in the Zest were a stop gap arrangement till the new engines came. Now that TATA has completed testing the new diesel and turbocharged petrol, its only logical to add it to Tiago/Tigor. On the other hand, I'm not sure what the future of Zest is. 3 years now no news of a facelift? IMO the Tigor cannot take Zests place, as it is based on a car from a lower segment unlike that Dzire segment. So even with the new engines, I still expect it to be priced lower than Dzire and company.

Tata's upcoming Tiago Sport (and it's sedan cousin the Tigor Sport) will be branded as "JTP" products (an amalgan of Jayem Auto & Tata Motors) - an indication of a possible future performance divison of the domestic auto major.

Quote:
Side skirts and a mild body kit are other visual updates that would set the sportier Tiago and Tigor from their everyday versions. Sportier alloy wheels will complete the look but, in the interest of maintaining a comfortable ride, it is unlikely Tata will upsize the Tigor’s 15-inch rims. That said, the Tiago Sport could make the switch to the larger 15-inch rims, presently not offered on the standard car.

What will undoubtedly also help the stance of the cars will be their lowered suspensions. Tata Motors and partner Jayem Auto, which is doing the development work, will go all out with a revised suspension package too, complete with stiffer springs for a more entertaining driving experience. As a consequence, ground clearance is expected to be marginally lower than the standard cars.

Tata has not revealed any details of the cars’ cabins but it is safe to presume sportier colour themes, more premium materials and bespoke detailing, which will help differentiate these cars on the inside as well. Autocar India has also learnt that the Tiago Sport and Tigor Sport will be branded ‘JTP’ (an amalgam of Jayem, Tata Motors and performance, perhaps), which will take shape as Tata Motors’ performance division. There is, however, no confirmation as to when these models will actually go on sale.

Confirmed - the Tiago S & the Tigor S are indeed coming to the 2018 Auto Expo, as JT (Jayem-Tata) Special Vehicles Private Limited products.

They will be joined by the Tamo Racemo sports car in Tata's "Performance Zone" at the Expo.

Quote:
Also on display at the Tata Performance Zone will be sportier versions of the Tiago hatchback and Tigor sedan. Tata tied-up with Jayem Automotives last year to make more exciting models. The first fruits of the partnership – branded JT Special Vehicles Pvt Ltd – will be on display at the Auto Expo as the Tiago Sport and Tigor Sport. Tata has teased the design of the new performance models, which is based on the manufacturer’s new Impact Design 2.0 philosophy.

Tata should have showcased a refreshed Zest.

The rejig wouldn't cost much but could see the much needed superficial differentiation.

Zest, as a very good product, is lagging behind every other product in this class.

Tata should have made over Zest.
