Scoop! Tata Tigor spotted with production badges

Thank you to BHPian RavenAvi for sharing these images with other enthusiasts!

Tata Motors recently announced that its upcoming compact sedan offering based on the Kite5 concept will be called the Tigor. Production of the car with the new moniker badges has now begun, as seen in the latest set of images. It will get the 'Tigor' badge on the left side of the boot lid, while the trim level badge will be displayed on the right like the Tiago.

The Tigor will basically be a sedan sibling of the Tiago hatchback. It will be Tata's third car based on the company's new IMPACT design philosophy. While the front fascia will largely be inspired from the Tiago, the side will get a notchback-like silhouette, with the roof line sloping to meet the boot lid. The tail section will get new wraparound tail lights, a chrome strip in the middle and a roof spoiler that will house the LED high mount stop lamp. Sources also suggest that the top-end diesel model of the Tigor will get new diamond cut alloys, which were seen in previous spy shots. On the other hand, the top-end petrol trim will get the same alloys that are found on the Tiago XZ.

Powering options are expected to be identical to that of the Tiago. These include a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder diesel and a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol. Both these power plants will come with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, while an AMT unit will likely be added at a later date.

Tata is expected to launch the Tigor compact sedan in India by the end of next month, i.e., March 2017.
