Default Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Unsurprisingly Tigor has sold less units (1967) than Zest (2389) in July. The compact sedan segment is cut throat and Tata should have priced the Tigor more aggressively to grab some market share at least initially.

Source of Figures: Autopunditz.

May be Tata has plans for Zest, trying to save it from cannibalization. Doesn't make sense though, as Zest has moved to fleet operators.
Not just the engines, the steering too. On driving it's elder sibling Tigor, IMO, the perception of power and control is hampered by,

1. Too light steering that offers very little feedback - the EPS units in Ford Aspire and VW Polo offer much better feedback and hence the perceived notion of handling.

2. Too linear power delivery and feeling of lack of torque - I might be wrong going by the numbers, but the perception of torque and initial acceleration is better in a Polo 1.2 (3-cyl)

Otherwise, it's a brilliant car with a cool feature set and well priced - almost made it to my list.
