It depends on the way you will tackle the situation if it arises. Ideally in pretty much all cases - it gets taken care of like a gentlemen's agreement with the dealership. Minor issues, nicks n bits - they repair. If its a nasty total loss kind of accident - they will arrange for a replacement car for you.

Till the car hand-over documentation is signed by you - the car is in their ownership and custody even if invoiced to you. And - dealers have transit and storage insurances over all these inventory items. So they typically would handle such a scenario internally. In the rarest of rare scenario where they try to put this on your head - you always have legal means to turn things around. You'll have enough data points and paperwork to prove you never had the car with you. Don't worry so much. Look forward to your car & enjoyable ownership.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Hi all, test drove the Tigor AMT yesterday. I am in the market for a B-segment automatic hatchback and the Tiago XZA is one of the top contenders. Since the showroom could not arrange a Tiago AMT on-time for the test drive, I was offered a Tigor AMT instead.

Found the power on tap to be pretty good and more than sufficient (I currently drive a 12 year old Maruti Alto with the F8D, so my current benchmark for performance is extremely low). However, the throttle action in the test car was jerky, to the point of being a deal breaker. The throttle on-off transition was always accompanied by a noticeable jerk despite me trying by best to be gentle with the right foot, throughout multiple attempts. The Alto that I currently drive is notorious for its jerky power delivery which irritates me to no end, and I really don't want my next car to behave even remotely similar. The SA too acknowledged the issue and said that this might be an issue with the test car, and promised to bring another Tiago AMT for a second test drive next week.

Also, in one instance, when the car was in 4th gear (in 'A' mode) and moving at a steady pace, I floored the throttle to check the kickdown response, expecting a downshift, but the transmission did not budge and continued in 4th gear. I then slowed it down and surprisingly, it still continued in the same gear. I could see the tacho at somewhere around 1000 RPM and felt the engine slightly protesting as if it was being lugged, and then it suddenly shifted down to 2nd (couldn't determine the exact RPM, as the digital tacho lights up progressively only in increments of 500 RPM).

Has anybody had a similar experience with the Tiago/Tigor AMT? Is this jerky power delivery normal behaviour, or am I nitpicking too much? I had test driven a Hyundai i10 Nios AMT just a few hours before this and found the transmission to be great with instant kickdown response (downshift) and smooth shifts (from 2nd gear onwards).

I am praying that the next test drive turns things around for the little Tata to make its way to my parking lot.

Thanks.

Tiago AMT is surprisingly smooth for a 3 cyl petrol, as with a set up like this , that is 3 cyl and AMT, you need to expect a delay in response and that is something you get used to in a while. However I suggest you test drive a different vehicle from a different dealer before taking a decision.

Hyundai NIOS levels of refinement is not to be expected though, they are not exactly comparable vehicles.

Thanks. I can live even with a slow-shifting AMT as long as the power delivery is smooth, but the throttle on-off jerks were a big turn-off. Even the cabin NVH levels were quite decent, but yeah, there is simply no comparison to the silky smooth 4 cylinder 1.2s. Though the test car's engine was quite audible (for a petrol) from the outside, felt nicely cocooned-in from the inside.

Will definitely give it another go before arriving at a decision. Will be test driving the Ignis as well.

The Tiago is one car that is hard to strike-off from the shopping list! The Nios was initially not even in consideration due to its abysmal safety rating, but since the Magna AMT variant was priced bang-on with the Tiago XZA, thought of checking it out.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

I have the Tigor AMT (along with a bunch of other automatics) and frankly if driven sanely, it's perfectly fine. No jerks most of the time but I did notice that if you reduce speed and it's 2nd gear and when you tap the throttle it does jerk a bit but couldn't replicate that scenario again, guess it's a one off. Other than that I think it's pretty good. Kickdown also works but yes, it does loose the power for a second when it shifts to next gear and that can feel weird at times.
Overall, I kept my expectations to drive it normally and it rewards you with comfortable drive.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Wifeís colleague got herself a new Tigor XZ+ recently and I checked the car out.

Tata Tigor : Official Review-6b38ff4806544b4dacb47c23d41b0a32.jpeg

Really impressed with the car but Iíd still pick a Tiago over this because Iím not a big fan of compact sedans. But what really blew me away was the Harman sound system. My goodness, is there anything this side of 20 lakhs that comes close to this? Without a dedicated subwoofer, I was really impressed with the kind of bass the drivers delivered. That said, the UI was a little laggy and wasnít even fastest to the touch response; ditto while using Apple CarPlay.

Plus I also noticed gas struts for the boot lid which is good but the keyfob wonít open the boot lid. Would have been nice if it did.

Long press headlight on switch on the remote ( for about 4 seconds) and the boot will unlock . It is electro magnetic release.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Hello everyone. We got our Tigor XZA+ delivered to us on June 4th 2021. So it's been 84 days and we have clocked 6666KMs till now. I want to post a detailed ownership review but I don't know how to start a new thread. Can someone give me some info regarding the same?

Me and my Dad are very happy with our purchase as of now. The car is returning 12-17KMPL. It is a Fill it, shut it, drive it car. Attaching some images our car

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this information in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP share page!

Hello Team-BHP,

I'm writing this email to share a quality concern due to which I faced a major issue in my Tata Tigor XZA+ AMT BS6.

Details:

The rubber gasket of the engine oil filler cap broke (the car is Feb-2020 model, only 4,500 km driven, last serviced in Feb-2021) and the oil spilled around the engine bay. I noticed this when I unsuspectingly, and out of normal habit, opened the bonnet and did a usual inspection. Please see the images attached.

Despite the oil leakage due to this, there was no engine oil warning sign on the dashboard and the car had kept running with a minor increase in vibrations. There was no increase in the engine temperature.

After noticing this, I brought the car to KHT Motors service center and this was fixed with a new cap and gasket under warranty.

I have never experienced this kind of an issue in the past with any other cars that I have owned and driven.

Despite being a proud supporter of Tata cars, this has surely made me suspicious of the product quality offered to me and I'm not sure how to not expect such issues in the future.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Thanks @UtkarshC for posting this. I have now joined Team-BHP.

Some further updates on the below issue:

1. After getting the Oil cap fixed and engine belt replaced, I have now driven the car around 1000+ kms and don't see any further issues or leakage.
2. City mileage is around 13 kmpl (Bangalore).
3. No 'increase' in engine noise and vibrations. Just the 'regular' bearable noise and vibrations of the 1.2L 3-cyl Revotron engine.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

I have an XT Diesel Tigor, Nov 2017 manufactured, the XT model came with 4 speakers, while they are sufficient I always wanted to get the tweeters fitted. Today while cleaning and fitting the cabin filter just felt an urge to open up and check for provision of tweeter wiring, so removed the door beading, took off the A pillar internal trim and voila! the wire set up is just there, all I need to do is get a set of OEM tweeters, screw them onto the trim, plug it up to the wire, and enjoy a 6 speaker setup.
Dont know if the rear door too has the provision, I am not going to open up the rear door trim just to check, as dont want any rattles. 2 Tweeters would suffice me. Will take up this job in next 15 days will post a before and after video too of the sound quality.
Here are the pics of the setup.

Hi Viransh,

Since you have asked in this thread and if you're inclined towards buying an EV, Tigor EV should fit right into the requirements you have listed.
