Just days after the launch of the updated Ford Aspire, it’s time for the arrival of another refreshed compact sedan. This time, it’s the Tata Tigor facelift, which has launched at a starting price of Rs 5.20 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 6.09 lakh for the diesel version.
Take a look around the Tigor facelift and you’ll see several new features, like the square chrome elements inside the headlights, the clear-lens tail-lights and a shark-fin antenna. There’s also a new Egyptian Blue paint option on offer. Chrome highlights are also visible on the door handles, the front bumper, the grille and the fog lamp housings.
The big news is the addition of a new top-spec XZ+ trim, equipped with a 7.0-inch Harman-sourced touchscreen infotainment system (with Android Auto compatibility) that doubles as a display for the reverse camera.
Additional features on the Tigor XZ+ include faux-leather upholstery, driver’s side seat-height adjust, power-folding wing mirrors with integrated turn indicators and a shark-fin antenna.
There are no mechanical changes to the facelift and the Tigor continues to sport the same 85hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine and the 70hp, 1.05-litre diesel motor as before. Lower trims that are powered by the petrol motor get the option of either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox, while the top-spec variant can only be had with the manual gearbox. The diesel only gets a 5-speed manual transmission.
The refreshed Tigor will square off against the Ford Aspire, Honda Amaze, Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Hyundai Xcent and the Volkswagen Ameo.
