I think the problem is with your Dealer. I have a good and pleasant experience with my dealer and the relationship still continues.

Tata Motors have good products now, but some dealers are spoiling the game (this is my observation).

Do you have any other dealer in your place - If yes, check with them also.

- 3 adults at the back is not much of an issue as the rear seat stretches all the way till the doors so the folks sitting at corners get ample soft cushioning. This was not the case with Nexon. There 3 at back was a squeeze.
- Extremely easy to move around due to its compact dimensions. Also the ride quality is brilliant.

Unfortunately I haven't had an opportunity to drive it at highs speeds so I've never been able to get a sense of its behaviour at triple digit speeds and to get a first hand experience of how it's engine performs (basis the general assumption that the engine is underpowered).
I own tigor manual and Tiago amt. Tiago engine is very refined and has ample power at sensible speeds. The engine is peppy enough but don't expect any wonders in fuel efficiency (read no Maruti level efficiency as it is around 200kgs heavier) .highway stability for the tigor is good but would recommend an upgrade to 185 Tyres as the good year OEM is crap.

Yes,your wish there was more power when it is fully loaded with 5members and luggage but never to the point of cursing it. Easily livable . For me build quality and high speed stability was too priority. Plus the compactness and the lack of width is a great plus in city. Absolutely the right size in city with a very sweet steering and auto fold mirrors (tap them to reduce width even more)

Top pluses
Compactness and manuverabilty
Feelsome and light steering with self centring
Auto ac
Comfy seats in the xz+
Reverse camera
Build quality
Ownership cost in 1 year-100 bucks for key remote

Is there a possibility of a review of the updated tigor?
Not a single ownership or intial impressions post on the forum.
Would be great if Team BHP reviews the facelift.

Third service done . Odo @11500 Kms. Total amount is a thousand rupees which I feel is very reasonable (only grner check up and a much deserved wash and cleanup)

Hi. Tiago comes with a rear washer/wiper. Why is it not available in the tigor ?

It has to do with its sedan form factor. You don't see a rear wash and wipe on sedans like City, Verna, Vento etc or even the compact sedans like Ford aspire, Amaze etc.

Some explanation for this: https://drivetribe.com/p/why-sedans-...TiCRmX4yz2FXmA

In a low slung sedan - the muck and dirt thrown up by the wheels mainly gets blocked by the protruding boot. The airflow going over a much sloped rear glass also ensures the small water droplets carrying mud/much don't settle on the glass.

In case of SUVs / hatchbacks - the rear overhang tends to be smaller, ground clearance is higher / wheels are much larger (SUVs). Additionally, the rear windshield tends to be more upright compared to sedans, so aerodynamics don't help a lot. So - they tend to need wipers a bit more in general.

Frequently there are notchbacks that tend to have a rear wiper. A common sight in the EU. In our market - these aren't frequent sights. The old Hyundai Accent Viva was one such example. It was a notchback that had a rear wipe. If you ask me - the Tigor might find a rear wipe useful. But I don't see even a remote chance of that investment happening.

Thanks JithinR and Reinhard for your elaborate details. Tigor is a great VFM sedan with a lot of features. I can never understand why it doesn't sell well. If it had an Altroz spec diesel offering(bs4 spec was 70bhp + 140 Nm! what were they thinking?!), it would register very good sales. Given its current numbers, Tata wouldn't intend on investing it.
