Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Looking at Tigors website and came across this on the pricing page. Looks like the new Tigor is round the corner.

Prices are available now.
Seems to have been revised upwards by upto 9K Rs.
I don't think that Tigor facelift will be launched so soon.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

They've launched two new variants it seems. XMA and XZA+. Priced pretty well, IMO.

The top end fully loaded petrol auto is priced at 7.25L. That's great value for someone considering an automatic sub-4 metre sedan, no? Substantial saving over the Maruti Dzire

Tigor has been sitting in the right price bracket for most part. The interiors are nice and premium for the money, the quality and the visual appeal has definitely gone up being a TATA product, and as expected out of a TATA product the practicality and the roominess of the cabin is on par. The main let down that I see is the 3 cylinder mill with it's weak power figures. Had it been a 4 cylinder unit with power and torque on par with that of the competition, it would make Tiago and Tigor a much sweeter deal to consider. IMO, the engine should excel at least either in refinement/quietness or in performance/tractability if not both. I guess Tigor misses out on both refinement and performance.
I zeroed in on Aspire petrol a couple of years back since I wanted a petrol car that is reminiscent of a silent mill. I knew that the petrol engine on the aspire is a bit dull but I was okay with it since I am a sedate driver.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Recent update on my one year 15k KM run Tigor, Looks like last software update for ECU and gear-box has sorter most of the drive ability issues, shifts are better and feels miles ahead of AMT from segment lower(Old Wagon R as a sample).

BUT, it this too little and too later? Sales number have crashed and facelift didn't create any difference in sales or appeal of the car. I couldn't recommend the car to anyone, as I had few persistent (but minor) issue with the car. I would now recommend, but looks like there will be no takers.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

No matter what Tata does to Tigor, nothing is going to pump up sales unless they touch the engine bay. Today's customer is well aware of things like engine spec, mileage, etc. The real world average of Tigor is not way too high vs a fiat engined car, but the power and refinement is a lot poor. Pump up the power, put an auto box and see how people find true value in this product.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Update after driving 1K km from last service:
  • Gear shifts are better most of the time, rarely has minor jerks.
  • Engine is reasonably refined, low end feels good with smoother shifts.
  • Surprisingly no issues or niggles! product feels like a proper finished one.
  • Mileage is around 12 to 14 in moderate traffic, close to 17 or 18 on highways.
  • Brakes are terrific, pads might need replacement already though, pedal travel is much more than normal.

Overall satisfied with the car.

They did some work in the rear to close all the possible gaps, smell hasn't gone away completely but its quite rare. It used to intrude every single time I rev hard, much better now.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Have seen a video lately of a Tigor test mule clocking speeds more than 140 Km/h. Also there was a hint of "structural" changes in the next facelift. Wondering if that's based on ALFA platform? Any changes under the hood by any chance? I like Tigor's form factor, just the right size for me. TIA.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Saw this test car over pune solapur highway, seems pretty much same as current Tigor, except for front grill and bumper which resembled altroz (sorry couldn't get that in camera)

I hope they get BS6 diesel with >1 ltr. In the compact sedan, Tigor really stands out with it's modern looks and sharp face. The turn off is the small diesel engine, although many petrol lovers are happy with the JTP avatar.

Didn't TML pretty much confirm that they are doing away with diesels under 1.5L capacity? Will they ever put the 1.5L RevoTorque in the Tigor? I don't think so, as thats going into the "premium" Altroz in a 90PS tune. The lowest mapping (ECO mode in Nexon) would basically bring the power on par with the curren't 1.0L RevoTorque's peak output. So no sense in doing that either. I think the Tiago & Tigor will become petrol-only models in BSVI era.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

20k+ Km update on my Tigor AMT:
  • Have got used to the AMT box and shift logic too has adopted to my driving style. No issues within city at all.
  • Mileage is around 12 in city recently.
  • Suspension has held up well, ride quality is as good as new.
  • AC filter needs constant cleaning
  • No niggles as usual!
  • strictly a 4 seater no matter how we see it!

Overall engine's reliability might be one of the strong points for this car, as most owners in our group never had any major issues like seizure or piston ring failure and so on. For the price car feels great, sadly seating constrain makes me think about an upgrade, hopefully I clock more miles before I sell it off.
